Title (EN) TANDEM BICYCLE
(FR) TANDEM
Abstract:
(EN) A tandem bicycle is provided that have a shortened wheel base between the front and rear wheels that allows a rider to ride comfortably alone from either the front or rear seats, or with a passenger in the front seat. The frame length of the inventive tandem bicycle is comparable to a standard single seat bicycle. The reduced proximity between riders, and the ability to steer for both the front or rear seats on the inventive tandem bicycle improves the level of participation and interaction between the riders. The wheelbase is reduced by bringing the front wheel closer to the front seat position. A reduced diameter front wheel is provided to accommodate rotational clearance of the front pedals thereby allowing two riders to ride on bicycle frame with a length common to single rider bicycle.
(FR) L'invention concerne un tandem qui a un empattement raccourci entre les roues avant et arrière, qui permet à un cycliste de rouler confortablement seul depuis les sièges avant ou arrière, ou avec un passager sur le siège avant. La longueur de cadre du tandem selon l'invention est comparable à une bicyclette à un seul siège standard. La proximité réduite entre les cyclistes, et la capacité de conduite pour les sièges avant ou arrière du tandem selon l'invention améliorent le niveau de participation et d'interaction entre les cyclistes. L'empattement est réduit en rapprochant la roue avant de la position de siège avant. Une roue avant à diamètre réduit est prévue pour s'adapter à un jeu rotatif des pédales avant, permettant ainsi à deux cyclistes de rouler sur le cadre de bicyclette comprenant une longueur commune à une bicyclette à un seul cycliste.
