My wife and I just bought a Rover Tandem, and are picking it up Tuesday.
My wife and I have different fitness and riding levels. We got the Rover tandem with the IPS and 8 speed internal hub rear.
I see from the forums I can install a Patterson 2 speed drive up front but I also want to allow my wife to have the "granny low" gear at the rear station, as she has never ridden a bicycle in her life, and I've been a more avid trail rider and getting back into flatland road riding. I also want the multispeed so I can move us both along when she needs a break.
Is a Patterson drive compatible with the Rover Tandem's IPS system at all? I haven't seen the IPS personally yet (our demo ride didn't have IPS and the Terratrike dealer is about 3 hours away so we won't get our bike until Tuesday) so have no idea how IPS is implemented.
thanks in advance for any advice, wisdom or knowledge.
