We are going to tour the US and need to get two tandem bikes. Look for a tandem around $1000 is there one that will work or do any of you all have any recommendation

Our starter was a 1985ish Santana we bought locally off cragislist. We paid $600 for it, and it was in excellent condition.
For $1000 you're likely to find something bit newer with index shifting (which was the one thing about the Santana I really didn't like - friction barcons).
We didn't want to spend very much money because I didn't think I'd like it. We had the bike a month and bought something brand new.

Two tandems. Interesting. Is this for two couples or a family of four? Pity you can't get a Quad bike for $2,000. Please keep us updated.
Thanks for the infromation. This will be for a family of four two adults and one child 16 one 9. We are currently looking at the trek t900.

If you're located somewhere around SLC, UT, you might want to take a look at the Burley Duet that I'm re-homing. Just click the link in my signature.
