My wife and I bought a used Cannondale tandem mountain bike as our first tandem last year. We enjoy the tandem experience and would now like to move on to a tandem road bike.
We can't quite decide whether it makes more sense to buy a new Trek T1000 ($2419 msrp) or Cannondale ($2700 msrp), or whether to buy a used 1998 Santana Sovereign for $2000 or used 2003 Santana Arriva with couplers for $3500 (both are advertised in our local classifieds). I am inclined to go for the 2k Santana but it is almost 10 yrs old... Do the prices seem right for the used bikes?
Any advice for a relative newbie to the sport to help me know what I should be looking for? Or what I should look out for or would raise flags?
