    2006 Santana Sovereign

    We're looking at a great-looking 2006 Santana Sovereign, with Terry titanium saddles. It's owners want $2,800 for it. This seems reasonable to me. What do you think?

    Considering a Sovereign goes for $5,300 on their web site the price seems good. Any signs of damage? How does it ride? Has a mechanic you trust gone over it? Be wiling to pay for the check-out.

    It sounds like a great deal. Get some history on it and have a mechanic check it out.

    After using the used bicycle calculator on www.thetandemlink.com, it looks like a super deal! That's a very informative site.

    If it fits and has all you want/need and is in decent shape, that's a nice price for a Sovereign.

    If it fits ...and is in decent shape, it sounds like a home run to me! Good luck.

    Yes! We bought it . . . We have a Tandem Tuesday that we've used since 1996. We'll keep it for traveling, but the Santana will be really nice for local rides.
