    Santana Cabrio Impressions

    Hi; I currently own a Burley Rumba. I am thinking of picking up a Santana Cabrio. Anyone out there who owns one of these and would like to share their thoughts? Does anyone other than Santana make a bike similar to the Cabrio?

    Thanks.

    I don't own one, but I do know some folks who do. You can either give me a list of your questions and an Email address where they can reply to that I'll forward to them OR you could subscribe to "Tandem@Hobbes" and ask your question there -- as that's where they "hang-out" on the Web.

    You can find out how to subscribe to Tandem@Hobbes by going to the following URL:
    http://www-acs.ucsd.edu/home-pages/wade/tandem.html

    As for others who build these types of "convertible" tandems, there are several builders, including but not limited to the following:

    Bilenky, near Philadelphia, PA, created the original "Triplicator" http://www.bilenky.com/index.htm

    Meridian Tandem of Eugene, OR, has built several.
    http://www.meridianbike.com/

    Dennis Bushnell of Bushnell Cycles in Washington State has built several.

    Rodriquez of Seattle, WA, created something called the "8 Ball" and may be building these types of tandems.
    http://www.rodcycle.com/tandemcust.html

    There may be others but these are the ones I know of off the top of my head.

    I am just looking for how well these work out. I would normall use it as a 2-person bike, but would want to add a 3rd or 4th seat from time to time. My email is tc@hazzard.org

    Thanks.

    The word has been passed to the "other" forum. I was .cc'd on replies from Brian J (Santana Cabrio-3), Dr. Mark (Santana Cabrio-4) and Chuck O. (Meridian Quad) who are weekend readers. I suspect some of the others won't see the posting until sometime during the week depending on how often they check their Email.

    Hope this helps.
