Opinions on a Burley Duet 2003?
OK, the used 2006 Co-Mo with dings was aparently sold at its asking price, $ 4650 including cases. Now I found a 2003 Burley Duet with S&S. Much less money of course, but no cases.
Question is particularly regarding the diferences in the frame vs a Co-Mo Primera or Speedster. The price diference between these offers gives me a lot of room for component upgrades if I need them. I am not worried about resale value, I plan on using it, so Burley being out of the tandem business is not a big concern. But to take the trouble of getting it down here I do want a bike that I will be happy with, and I don't have the luxury of test rides.
In order to estimate its market price I can use the very handy Tamdemlink spread sheet, but I need a replacement cost of a bike that is no longer available, any sugestions?
