I've ridden singles for years. Even tried recumbents for awhile. (Still have a trike). Got my wife into road biking two years ago and she loves it. We rented a tandem last fall to see how we'd "work together". We had it for an afternoon and had a blast. We were sold. As seems to be fairly norm, I'm much stronger than she, so it'll allow us to ride together more often and comfortably. ANYWAY, last Saturday I ordered a Co-Motion Speedster. Not sure if I can afford the performance package yet, but going to try. I'm pumped (so to speak). It'll take around six weeks before we get it. Just in time for the weather to get better (I live in the foothills of Colorado). I read this forum every day and have learned a lot from all of you. Thanks.
