    Hello from Phil in Miami Fla. Re; Tandem

    I am looking for a tandem for my wife & I. We would like a quality bike to take relatively short hops to the store, dinner or a Sunday ride. We also will bring it with us when we camp with our airstream. We are not serios cyclists but I don't want a chepo bike ether. I have 36" inseam and need a very large frame to fit me. My wife is average about 5' 7". I weigh about 185 and she is about 155. After looking around for a while I have stumbled on a shop that has some 1994 Trek T100 Tandems new in the box sized 62CM / 56CM. I am considering buying one for about 1200.00 including shipping. It will arrive UN-built and although I am mechanically inclined I will probably have a bike shop assemble it. I would love to here any comments. They said they would include new tires of which I can pick the width. I am leaning towards 35s with a cross tread?

    Welcome to Bike Forums! Check out the Tandem forum, I'm sure they can give you information on the Trek tandems.
