No, we're not dumping the Speedster (well, not until we upgrade in 6-7 years), but I'm looking for a decent beach cruiser. Not for us, but for our family doctor -- o.k., she's a physician's assistant -- who thinks the tandem concept is fun. While she and her husband are active, I really don't see them becoming members of the real biking community. They currently ride less than two miles. On a related note, my recommendation will be for a trailer (probably Burley) for their 6 y.o. (triples are pretty much non-existent until one gets a Bike Friday, Santana, et al). A lot of these lower cost tandems that I've already seen have had real poor reviews (even in the context of cheap(er) bikes). Or is a used mountain tandem a better route or overkill? Thoughts or recommendations?
