I'm a recreational rider, mostly riding on a local rails to trail bike path (decently compacted gravel) and some road. I'd like to ride more road, but have yet to make the leap from my hybird/mountain bike with smoothie tires to a real road bike.
My oldest daughter has always enjoyed riding, but she has gotten to big for the one wheel attachment we used to use. A Raleigh Coupe tandem popped up on Craigslist - seems like a nicely maintained bike.
We rode the bike around the "block" - it seemed to click, we synced nicely and I liked how the bike rode.
The seller is the original owner (I think) and he is asking $750.00
Below is the Craigslist verbiage.
Good deal, bad deal?It has a aluminum frame, avid mechanical disc brakes, triple crank, 9 speed cassette, shimano shifters, Specialized body geometry grips, cateye mity 8 cycle computer, Rr.Der.105.
Very nice road tandem, but still able to ride Frisco Trail or dirt roads.
I am selling it because my daughter is 18 and no longer wants to ride with Dad. The bike retailed for almost $1,600.00 new. It is in excellent shape!!
Thanks in advance.
