My husband and I are looking into getting our first tandem; I have essentially no cycling experience; he has years and years on a single bike. We were thinking of getting a Burley Rumba...but I think my husband has talked me up to the Duet.
My question: is there anybody out there who has a relatively tall stoker (5'10"), with long arms and torso (I always have to buy tall sizes or the sleezes are just too short), who ends up being comfortable on a non-custom frame? The captain is 5'10" as well; we're planning on a medium, 22x19. We test-rode several bikes that are available locally--but they were all either small or large, so we couldn't get a good sense of fit, and besides, I don't know what it should feel like since I don't have experience!
Also, can anybody rave about the Duet to make me feel better about the extra money beyond the Rumba?
