Steve Jobs talked about his longing to invent a better bike. He might have asked the question. Why don't people ride tandem bicycles, tandem trailers, folding tandem bicycles? Because, obviously people like to be together... He might have observed three major problems with all standard tandem bicycles. Problem one and two, while you sit on the front of your $5000 folding tandem, surveying all that is in front of you, your girlfriend can't see through you! Equally interesting, but maybe it's not important to some guys. She can't talk to you either. Problem three, tandem bicycles are too long, because she's scared at every turn. Now she never wants to ride it, so it's taking up space in your garage. So, people have lived with problem for 130 years? Steve might have known the answer to these problems, but he's not known for his smooth ways with people. If you ask me, simply, make a tandem without those problems. Oh, ya I've talked to Steve, you use stuff I created, right there, that magnetic thingy...
Image we all see forward and can sing too. 'Oh.. Just the three of us, we can make it if we try, just the three of us, you and I'
Simple pleasures... talking, and just seeing the scenery, on this great handling UniTandem folding tandem bicycle, that I shamelessly am plugging for Shawn Raymond, who we just meet here at Maker Faire San Mateo 2017.
"You can really feel that short wheelbase, it bobs and weaves just like a regular bike!"
'Hi girls, how long did it take you to learn to ride it?' "One second"

Revolutionary UniTandem. red, blue, black
Better than a standard tandem bicycle, standard full length folding tandem, or dreadful tandem trailer. UniTandem allows both riders to talk freely. Both see forward. It handles like a regular bike. It parks in the space of a regular bike. It rides two full size adults or two young kids
The 'rear end' folds under, it fits inside a car, easily goes up stairs or parks in a small space. The removal of one bolt and front fork will allow it to pack into a 62 linear inch wheeled duffle bag, while seats and seat posts go in a separate bag. It's now classified as 'bike parts' rather than a 'complete bike' at the airport.
Shipping to USA lower 48 is $75, others TBD. Will be separate transaction via PayPal.
