Well we did the deed. We were riding with the group ride last weekend, talking with another tandem team about starting to test ride a few tandems, thinking about an upgrade in the spring. One stoker said why wait? "I know someone that has a tandem like ours (Co-Motion Roadster) they want to sell. A friend of the supposed seller overheard and said he didn't know he was selling his bike. The woman (sister to the aforementioned tandem) said he didn't know it yet but he would probably sell it seeing as how he bought it new a year ago and had ridden it less than 100 miles. Seems they weren't meant to be a tandem couple. His friend spoke with him and he called us on Monday. We rode it on Tuesday and Thursday and closed the deal on Friday. The bike is: 2006 Co-Motion Roadster custom frame but fits us perfectly, wound up carbon fork, thudbuster stoker post, Avid rear disc, Rolf vigor tandem wheels with a custom fade paint job. We have ridden it twice as far in 4 days as he rode it in a year. He just didn't like it. It was such a screaming deal too. One of those once in a lifetime opportunities. Red Rider is stoked because the bike fits her perfectly. Now we have a really nice Raleigh Coupe for sale. We will have to post it.
Here we are on yesterdays ride.
