I am going to look at an older Ibis tandem next week that I will be considering purchasing. I'm not sure which model it is but the seller told me that it cost over $4000 new. He is reluctant to name his price and wants me to take a look and make an offer and I quite honestly don't know where to start. I do know that it is equipped with hydraulic brakes which I believe were an add-on and mustache handlebars which were also an add on but he is including the road handlebars in the deal. He seems more interested in the bike going to a good home than how much he gets for it. I told him that I would offer what my budget allowed and to please not be offended. He assured me that he wouldn't.
I am also communicating with an individual about a Burley Samba. He is asking $750 for it and it hasn't been ridden a lot.
From the research that I've done on the net both bikes seem to be pretty good bikes but the Ibis is probably in a whole different class.
I would be interested in any comments about these bikes as well as some guidance as to what I should offer for the Ibis.
