Dual-control tandem

A tandem on which each rider controls the direction of their assigned wheel.

Two riders, two wheels, two steering mechanisms. A test in friendship. An empty road. A world of possibilities.

Imagine, if you will, having the ability to pedal facing forward whilst moving to the right. Brilliant.

And further on't, think of the spectacular stunts that could be accomplished on such a contraption by people that have very little else to do with their time, other than practice a double-whoopy flip stall to neck breaker 360 on their brand new Tandemz Baretta 720!

Fantabulous!

(?) I'd like to see you applying group steering to this puppy! http://www.partybike.com/
