    Dyno Crestline for $200

    I'm looking for a reasonably priced tandem to find out if my wife will really ride with me like she says. I found this bike on Craig's List and I'm going to check it out in a couple of days. I know it's bottom of the line but I don't want to spend serious money until I know it will be used. Anything I should look for? They didn't know what kind of components except "what came with it". You can get a cheap big box Kent for $300 but I would rather buy something like this. I figure I can always sell for that kind of money.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Given that you're really looking just to test the waters, and presumably will upgrade to a different bike if it catches on, the one thing to watch for is whether the fit is good enough to be adapted to your needs. If the fit is not good enough, you'll conclude tandeming isn't for you, whether or not it could be.

    It would co$t nearly that much to rent a tandem for a weekend.

    Yes it's bottom of the line and a tad better than a W-mart Kent; if it fits it's a cheap way to see if she likes to ride TWOgether.
    You can always buy something better later.
