    questions buying a used tandem for touring???

    my wife and i are going to buy a tandem for long distance touring. (multi week ventures)
    finances require we buy a used bike and upgrade as long as our hearts are in the sport
    apart from the correct size of bike for the both of us, what kind of tandem should i be looking for in regards to....
    aluminum vs steel
    wheel size
    handle bars
    shifters
    rear drum break or a generator in the rear hub for lights
    front fork with or with out suspension
    seat post suspension.
    bob trailer or panniers or both

    thanks

    might want to check in the touring forum, or do a search for tandems.
    So long. Been nice knowing you BF.... to all the friends I've made here and in real life... its been great. But this place needs an enema.

    Yeah, there is a touring forum and a tandems forum... even a used forum (Classic and Vintage).

    You're basically in the wrong place entirely.
