Burley Rumba - good first tandem?
The local (3 hours away) bike shop has a 2003 or 2004 Burley Rumba road tandem that they've been using as a rental. It has seen very minimal rental use, so the owner is looking to sell it. It appears to be size L, which by all accounts SHOULD fit my wife and I well.
That being said, is the Rumba a good first tandem, especially being used? The list for a new one is about 1800-1900...looks like we can get this one for a bit less (still waiting on a call back).
I've never bought a used bike (other than a beater). What things specifically should we be looking for with a used tandem? Anything that is prone to breakage, etc? If we buy the bike, it will be covered under the full warranty of a new tandem.
