Update, we bought the Trek!
Our dealer bought it in Feb 2009 as a "carryover model". Meaning it was basically a 2008 still left in Trek's stock. Trek sold off the remaining T1000 and T2000 in 2009.
We test rode the bike and it was a great fit and the ride was much better than I anticipated. On our test ride I even hit every pothole and road imperfection I could find and asked my wife's (stoker) opinion, of course I warned her before hitting any bumps. She was impressed with how smooth the ride was none of the bumps bothered her at all.
The bike shop we bought it from is only a mile from our home so we were willing to pay a little extra for that convenience. Plus they had our size, I had searched and the few I could find were on the other side of the country and also small size or the large size and we needed the medium size. We paid $2200.
I just ordered an Arai drum brake, got one of the last ones that Precision Tandems had in stock. Since the Arai drum is discontinued I wanted to get one installed while I could still find one.
