    I think Alcanbrad and waynesulak have great advice. The only refinement I have is about frame flex.

    We had a T900 for a few years. The frame was pretty solid for us medium-strong riders. Unless...

    Local shops might not be interested unless there is something in it for them. Large club members might not be interested in entry level bikes. Instead, I recommend Craigslist.

    It was also the first tandem that my wife and I ever owned. However, ours wasn't half as nice. We bought it at a garage sale. It was full of rust and corrosion, and it had flats front and rear.

    Both of your theories seem plausible, and both serve as a reminder to ride along with traffic. That is where drivers will be looking for you!

    My wife tried a Thudbuster LT, but it bounced a lot when we pedaled. Now she has a cheap spring-loaded seat post similar to THIS one from Performance. I preloaded it so it has almost no bounce when...

    I don't ride on Beach Blvd. There's no room for bikes, and the traffic is crazy. As you said, it's "...the busiest of them all...". It really is like a freeway with stop signs.

    That's scary close to home. I have ridden through that intersection many times. Yikes!

    I think that part of this detour retraces the route taken by Damian Kevitt when he was run over by a car that dragged him onto the 5 freeway. He lost a leg, broke 20 bones and nearly died.

    Gatorskins are among the best when it comes to flat resistance, so you might want to just stick with them.
