    Thanks for the nice pics.
    Interesting how low the top tube is relative to head tube.
    Looks like you could easily mount a rack on that with existing mount points.

    Assuming it is in good shape probably about half of the new price.
    That is what I could get for my Santana when I sold it.

    I have owned three tandems in my lifetime. Each one was an upgrade. I only upgraded some parts on my second tandem (Santana Sovereign) mostly because I had it for a long time and there was a lot...

    I had that exact problem with my Specialized Tarmac, couldn't get the play out of it. I took it to the shop and they replaced some of the parts and added the thin washer.

    I did notice that the nut is very close to the top of the spacer and was possibly bottoming out the top cap.
    From what I remember the stem came with epoxy to glue whatever holds the nut in.

    Problems with Chris King headset

    Recently noticed my headset was loose, so I tried to tighten it.
    Couldn't get all the play out of it until I tightened the top cap nut very tight.
    It still turns freely, but it seems I shouldn't...

    Here is something I came up.
    We didn't do this exact route on our tour but have done portions of it at some time.
    There are a lot of variations to this that could be done.

    They have worked well on my single bike. I would be tempted to use them on the tandem being that we are fairly light weight but I think you right it might not be strong enough.

    Not sure about this but I think our old Santana Sovereign frame weighed about 7.5 lbs.
    The fork was a boat anchor. but the whole bike was around 36 lbs. I see a lot of used ones around so that might...

    Small size (i don't have much seat post to work with)

    Mount seems secure and easy to take on / off.

    Nice wheels. Not too long ago we wore out our Velocity Fusion rims and I opted to replace them with the same.
    I recently rebuilt my single wheels using Pacenti SL23 rims.

    From the pic the paint doesn't look bad. I think it looks cool and classic and would keep it.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
    I also was suspecting the Shiftmate. I did reinstall the cable through it a while ago but will look at it again.
    I also wonder if those things can wear out.
