Hi, new here, about to purchase our first tandem.
I have many years of experience pulling a trail-a-bike and also an Adam's Ultimate Tandem (trail-a-bike that fits 2 children) and now I am ready to purchase my first real tandem.
This is primarily for my daughter and I to do rides of 1-4 hours, similar to what we have done on the trail-a-bike. My wife has bad alergies unfortunately so she isn't in to cycling.
is a 2002 KHS Tandeamia Comp with very low miles for $600. Looking at Bikepedia it looks like it is probably a 2000 or 2001 based on color.
Using the used tandem price guide at thetandemlink.com it looks like $460-560 is a reasonable price range. It seems like this would be a good 'first tandem' for us at a price we can afford. Realistically I can't get in to the $700 and up range right now. here in the San Francisco bay area it seems like tandems are pretty popular on CraigsList so this seems like a good bike for the price. Thoughts? Comments?
Thanks in advance,
