We just got our first tandem - a Gary Fisher Gemini, circa 1990 - arrived UPS from Minnesota yesterday.
I think it's a very handsom rig, and it seems to be in excellent mechanical condition. New brake pads, chains, tires, lubrication recently so all looks ready to go this weekend.
I haven't been able to find out much about this bike and I'm hoping that forum members may be able to shed some light on this particular model. Here's some info:
