Subject: [CR] TA Bolts/Tandem


I did a trade the other day for a TA 3 bolt crank. Then located a couple of rings for it. Last night I went to bolt it together, and none of the crank bolts I've got will fit it. I even found some stronglight bolts and they don't fit. The hole size on the cranks is smaller than what I would call normal bolt size, ie: campy, stronglight, ect. Anyone have the proper bolts?

Also, Bessie and I ride tandem all the time. It seems when we ride together, more often it's on the tandem. She likes the "take the brain out of gear" part of riding the back. I can work as hard or as easy as I like and she just hands up the sandwiches and smells the roses along the way. Bessie also has the best balance of anyone I've ever ridden with on a big rig.  Plus, her power to weight is great, she trys to gain weight and can't, I smell a cheese cake and gain 5 pounds. We are quite fortunate to own Jack and Mrs. Taylor's personal tandem, and it fits us just right. So, I've got a great stoker and the Master's bike. What more could I want out of an afternoon ride on the tandem.
