    first tandem

    researching for our first tandem purchase. Lots of info on the web. Bikes from Thorn and Dawes look promising and close to our 1000 dollar budget...yeah I know thats not much.
    Looking for suggestions. we live in sweden and have really just begun to look around.

    If money is restricted you could try building your own

    Given your budget, a second-hand tandem could be your best bet. Here are some links to classified ad sites for tandems:

    Tandem Fahren (Germany)
    http://tandem-fahren.de/Kleinanzeigen/

    Tandem Club of France
    http://perso.wanadoo.fr/tandem.club.de.france/

    Tandem Club (UK)

    Tandem Club of America (USA)
    http://www.tandemclub.org/classifieds.html

    Tandem Magazine Web Site (USA)

    You could also post "wanted to buy" memos to the classified ads or message boards for these clubs.

    "houdini" on the oregon coast!
    we went through the same process. budget of $1200
    and by word of mouth...a cycling shop recommended a friend who was selling a tandem. it was a good buy!

    ten years later, we still ride "houdini" on extended tours.
