I will post a bike later today or tomorrow.
It took me a bit longer than expected to get the photos. Readview might now understand why I don't think it can be posted.
The bike is labeled as Soens Cycles but also has decal stating that it was designed by Bill Whitcomb. Built with Reynolds 531 tandem tubing with eccentric BB both in teh front and middle position. Built up with a pretty mainline selection of components: Campagnolo Rally read derailleur, Campagnolo Record front derailleur, Shimano bar end shifters, Campagnolo pantographed brake levers, Phil Wood tandem hubs fitted out for use with disc brakes (which I have not found to be needed inasmuch as I live in an area with no hills whatsoever and riding partners weigh so little that the Mafac tandem cantilevers are more than sufficient.) I do however have some Shimano disc brakes that I can fit when needed. The rims are Super champion M58 in 27" size. The headset Campagnolo Record. chainsets are TA all around. The pedals are Rino all around. The saddles are Iscaselle Giro d'Italia. Cinelli 1R stem in the front and Cinelli bars on front and rearmost position (my youngest daughter still has adopted drop brs yet, but I do have another set of Cinelli bars for teh middle position when she is ready). I usually go out for rides with my daughters. I previously had a kiddie crank adaptor for the middle position as my youngest was too small to reach the pedals.
It actually rides and handles better than my much shorter Trek tandem.
