My husband & I ride a Trek T2000 tandem that we bought ourselves for Christmas 2002. My husband also rides a Specialized Allez road bike. I had to give up my road bike due to carpal tunnel & arthritis in my hands. Not having to shift & brake on the tandem is a big help! So far this year we've put over 600 miles on our new tandem. Our standard ride is about 25 miles, which we do 3-4 times a week. We've done a couple of longer rides in the 30-34 mile range. We are enjoying the tandem sooo much!
