comment Identify the components of this bike
I'm not sure anyone will be able to identify the handlebars' make/model from a video, but if you're looking for the name of that style of handlebar, it's "pursuit" or "bullhorn". The wheel appears to be an HED H3 or something similar.

comment Tandem for limited space?
+1 I've always wondered how tandems work with small cars (or don't work). Seems like if you had to, you could remove both wheels to make it less wide, but I wish I knew the actual dimensions.

comment How do I replace road bike hoods?
Never mind... according to Sheldon's glossary, "hoods" can refer to either. I find that highly confusing.

+1 for dishwashing soap. Just did wonders for me.

I think you are thinking of the brakes themselves, not the brake hoods. The hoods are the rubber pieces, not the metal parts underneath.
