OK, heres the deal. My mom had this tandem that my Dad bought when I was a kid lying around in her garage collecting dust. My Dad bought the thing in 1995 for like $700 bucks in a bike shop in southern california. This thing isn't built for speed (heavy aluminum frame and 26"x1.60" tires) but its fun as hell to ride. I now live in downtown Atlanta and I'm fixing it up to a be a commuter/urban/fun bike. The general idea is this. Alot of my family/friends like riding bikes, so I bought a spare bike so that others could share in the fun. Problem is, nobody can keep up. So I'm gonna use the tandem for that . I'm COMPLETLEY rebuilding this whole thing (i'll have pics up later this week).
