Ok, so that's a contradiction in terms. I got some excellent feedback on that GT Tandem from this site. I run a small bike maintenance business in addition to being a high school teacher, and a Navy Reservist. I was pretty excited about picking up that Quatrafoil for a couple of hundred bucks and converting it to 26". I was also feeling like a decent human being for offering $200. The owner had too many memories of spending $1100 to let it go so now I've had a taste and I'm curious about what happened to the rest of those quatrafoils? Anybody got one in the garage gathering dust? What about other options I should consider? Thanks for all your help! Dwayne Scates - Clean,Tune and True
