    Start with Craig's list. Find a Co-Motion, Santana if you can. Cannondales and Treks are also good.
    Check the websites of those companies for size info.
    Pivot 5.7
    Rawland Drakkar 650B love it with 38mm Soma tires

    Santana Fusion Tandem

    By "good priced" do you mean an inexpensive tandem or a good price on a new tandem? We need to know more about what you're looking for.

    What's your budget?
    What type of rides: local, club rides, centuries, touring, racing, trails, off-road?
    Is this your first tandem?

    On the minimum side, about $1000 for a good used one or $250 for a new cheapie.

    You can find them on Ebay or Craigslist, maybe a local tandem club? I got my Cannondale from CL for $650... I got lucky.

    Yep, CL is your friend here. I searched on CL for a good long time (off and on for 3-4 years) before finding what I wanted. To be fair, I would go through stages of varying commitment so it won't really take you that long but if you're looking for a good deal, act fast when you see something you like (the tandem I bought was up for 3 hours before I bought it and the seller said he had three other phone calls on it in that time).
