Looks like the last thread "2001 Cannondale RT1000 White?":
2001 Cannondale RT1000 White?
drifted a bit out of topic, so I am starting a new thread, but the readers might want to refer back.
I have been using TGeek's great site on buying tandems and the used price estimation tool. All very useful. However I had trouble with the links provided for clasified adds:
o Tandem Club of America: http://www.tandemclub.org/classifieds.html
The link is broken, when you go to the right one, the home page http://www.tandemclub.org/
, their classified add section seems like it is not really active has had the same short list for two weeks, though I did not contact sellers to see how old their postings were as there were no bikes that met my search.
o Tandem Magazine: http://www.tandemmag.com/classified/
This one works and is active but has a limited offer
o Tandem Network:
Link works but site is inactive, nothing listed, only two single bikes
o National Greenways Tandem Classifieds:
Link does not work, this one does work
but the site does not have a tandem section, very hard to find the few tandems that are listed
Independently I found this link:
But when I contacted one of the sellers the bike had been sold 10 months ago.
Does anybody know of other tandem specific classified adds?
Looks to me like the only sites that has actually works for me are ebay and Tandemmag.
Note for those of you that have bike shops, there are some good websites for shops, with listed bicycles in stock, and there are many who have dead websites. There are also many bike shops who don't reply to emails. In this globalized world you might reconsider you web strategy. Same goes for tandem manufacturers.
Another Note for those of you that manufacture tandems, why don't you list in your site the specs of older models, it would be most helpful, and you dont need to do anything, every year when you change your specs you just leave last year's specs with a date.
Finally if anybody con help me I am still looking for an S&S coupled bike for road and touring in Large/Small or perhaps Medium.
