Hi all....first time in this forum.
I've been road riding for years, and this summer my wife and I were at her family's summer place on a lake in Iowa, and we borrowed a friend's tandem. It was an old flat-bar Trek, I think steel, and we enjoyed ourselves. She doesn't currently ride, but has been talking about it lately if we bought a tandem.
I know nothing about them, and there isn't really a tandem specific shop here in Austin. Can anyone help point me toward a reasonable place to start? I'd like a road tandem with middle of the road parts (Shimano 105 equivalent). Material not too important (Al vs. steel, I ride a carbon roadie). Thanks...
