Can we steal a Strava KOM on a tandem?

BikeRadar staffers go after leaderboard glory onboard a mid-nineties touring tandem

BikeRadar head out on an old tandem to see if they can steal a local KOM

In the latest episode of our video series BikeRadar Diaries, Jack, Joe and Reuben head to the flattest section of road they can find aboard Cecil — a knackered mid-nineties touring tandem — to see if they can steal a Strava KOM.


It’s no secret that we here at BikeRadar have a soft spot for tandems.

Actually, that’s a lie — nobody except Jack does, but it was inevitable that given enough time, he’d drag his half-willing colleagues onto the back of his beloved tandem.

Watch as Joe and Reuben enjoy their first time aboard a tandem and push it to truly reckless speeds with predictably ridiculous results.

What other challenges would you like to see the trio attempt aboard Cecil? Or have you had enough of Jack pushing his aggressive pro-tandem agenda? As always, leave your thoughts in the comments.
