Would like to buy our first tandem ... would love a new one, but as it is a first, I'm hesitant to spend the money. I don't want the low end and I haven't looked at high end (I guess that's all relative), but have looked at new Cannondale.
I may have an opportunity to get the tandem listed below for approx $1000.
