Well the wife and I went and tried the Burley Samba and the Cannondale street tandem again at the LBS. We actually prefer the Samba, however the captains cockpit is too tall. I am trying to decide why it feels better. The Samba has thinner, higher pressure tires so it doesn't feel as spongy, it also was properly adjusted. So now I just don;t know what to do. I had just about convinced myself that the Burley would be the one, but the top tube could be a real safety issue.
I welcome any input or comments, but I just felt like thinking outloud.
