Just took a look online at some inexpensive tandems that Target (Mongoose 26 Wanderer Tandem) and Sears (Mongoose 26 Wanderer Tandem and Pacific Dualie) are carrying. They weren't there a few weeks / months ago. I know this will likely cause another discussion of "be careful of cheap tandems".
As some of you know I have been looking for a second tandem (for the kids and some friends to ride with us occasionally) for a while now. As a very occasional use item I certainly don't want to spend $500+. But even between the Mongoose (a bit over $235, competitive with the Walmart Kent) and the Pacific (a bit over $170, curious just what they might have done with the components to drop the price that low, the frame looks to be the same).
Any ideas, any experiences?
