I am 5'5" and an avid cyclist. My stoker is a 5'2" new cyclist. We are looking to spend between $1500-$2500 on a tandem.
The problem is, we can't seem to find any place (and we live in the San Francisco area) to actually try tandems in our size we are considering buying. So, we would have to lay down in most cases the entire cost of the bike (!) in order to even try the bike as a special order.
Any recommedations on how to get around this problem?
