A bargain price.
Wonder why it's being sold with almost 0 miles?
Besides the occasional family circumstance (stoker/captain gets sick, moving, etc.) being a reason, the only reason I can think of is the economic bonfire of that vanities that raged for the last 5 years or so. People were just giddy with cash/easy credit and lost their sense of reality. Once they bought it they found that stoker and/or captain really didn't like it that much.
Of course I can't really complain. We bought a slightly used Co-Motion Speedster Co-Pilot for about %40 percent of the replacement value.
Which reminds me to thank TandemGeek for his Used Tandem Guide. That spreadsheet was tremendously helpful in doing a quick check and find out whether a particular tandem was a good deal.
Or people with more money than sense think they want a tandem, go out and get the best available and find tandeming isn't for them.
Bet whoever bought this wishes they would have gone the used Burley route.
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
There is also a Calfee tandem on the 'bay. Note the 130 spacing.
Somebody needs to buy this daVinci before I do.... because it's my size.
Seriously, this is a Small size carbon daVinci Joint Venture with frame by Calfee. The buyer purchased the tandem in the hope that his handicapped son would be able to ride the bike, but it just didn't work out.
This is an incredible deal at the buy-it-now price.
Must be the economy, bikes look great!
Time to Ride...
The description looks like it was taken from Davinci's description from their website. The grammar in the posting looks very similar to an email I received when I attempted to sell my tandem last year, from a scammer. Before, you send any $'s, Get the serial number, contact Davinci and make sure this is a real deal. Take particular note of "join" venture and the multiple sizes for the stokers bars. I hope I am wrong but, mom always said if a deal seems to good to be true then it usually is.
If the sale is legit, please accept my apologies, I just don't want to see someone hurt in a scam.
Serious buyers should contact the seller and that will likely clear up any issues, i.e., which bike shop will be doing the packing, etc... Asking for the SN is also a good precaution. But that goes for any sale.
That is good news and I apologize to the seller and anyone considering purchasing. I have grown leary of great deals after my experience.
Well it did sell, one bid and what appears to be a smokin deal for the new owner.
Anyone know who got it?
2006 Co-Motion Roadster, flat bars, discs and carbon fibre fork, size 22 / 19
2006 Ventana ECDM full suspension mountain tandem
Some single bikes and a couple of KTM's
And most important, someone special that enjoys them with me (except the KTM's)
