Well, we put our first tandem on lay-away at Walmart last night. (Kent cheapo)
(Please, keep your Walmart bashing to yourself!)
We know the bike is not top quality. DUH!
We figured we would be able to tell if tandeming is for us on this cheapo bike. If we don't like riding tandem, the no big loss. If it turns out we enjoy the tandem, then we will look into upgrading this frame, or a better quality bike.
We'll be picking it up in mid-April. My wife is really excited about this.
