Just a quick hello....

It's been a few years since I've hung out with the tandem crowd. I see some old friends on here and wanted to give a shout out. Look forward to catching up a little!

This was "us" in 2002ish. The boys are 20 and 17 now, and we have a 5 y/o. Triplet, you say? Yep, we're in the market.

Hi Mark,

A few years ago when I started to look into the quad situation, you were very helpful to me. Eventually we bought an uncoupled quad from Santana. We are a few years behind you, so our current picture is more like your old one...

Those are awesome pictures! Quads are the stretch limousines of tandems. I envy you two your family time.

Nice to meet you Mark. My wife and I just bought our first tandem this past Saturday. After a vigorous 2-month search for something used, we ordered a Co-Motion Speedster from Tandems East. They have a great inventory, but you probably already knew that.

You didn't mention what you'll be looking for - maybe you can share you search parameters here so folks can keep an eye out for you.

Good luck with your search, and welcome back to the tandem world.

Btw - that was a great picture. With all those water bottles, your family could have volunteered with the local fire brigade.
