Hi all, I am new to biking and in need of suggestion on what kind of tandem bike to look for. I would like to take long trips with it camping style. How fast the bike can go is not important to me, but comfort for long rides is, as well as its ability to carry a load. Also, I will be riding with my 14 year old daughter, so I am not sure if any special considerations are needed due to that. I have read a lot of info on frame sizes, gearing, break systems, suspensions, etc. and now at a point where I am not sure what else to read and yet I am very confused. I went to a local bike shop, but they weren’t too much help. Also, I found out that prices range from $300 to $6000 and could not understand how the value was established in order to understand what price range I need to be in to get what I am looking for. I do not have a lot of money to spend, but buying something that will not accomplish what I am looking for will be a waste of money as well. Please help.
P.S. In one of the posts here I found a bike Lamborghini Viaggio ( http://www.amazon.com/Tonino-Lamborg.../dp/B000R7DND2 ). Some people said that it was a good bike, while others said that it is better to buy a used bike of a better brand. I could not see a clear explanation as to why, so if somebody can help on this point I would greatly appreciate it.
