WOOT!

We just got a Tandem! Its a beautiful RED Micargi Island!

We picked it because its fairly cheap, but fairly solid with decent Shimano drive hardware.

Its a bit heavy of course, but we finally agreed after months of talking about it and we wanted a casual beach cruiser.

We are still a bit scared of it! After I (Mark) finish assembly and basic adjustment, I will ride it around myself and decide if I need expert help or not.

While I have been casually biking since I was a kid, my wife Banu has pretty much NO BIKING experience! So, I will be the Pilot, and she the Stoker. We have read up on Tandem Bike safety and procedures, but the first time she gets on will be intense! I hope she has a blast!

Wish us luck!
