FAQ about Tandems

I think it would be nice for new Tandem Teams, or wanna be Tandem Teams if we had a thread that answered many of the "just starting out" questions. Some new teams might not be familiar with the search function or might be hesitant to ask a question for whatever reason. If we can gather enough information in one spot, possibly we can petition for it to become a "Sticky".

There are so many common questions, a few that come to mind are
"How much is this tandem worth?"
"Where do I buy a new tandem"
"How do I start"

How about it? Post a question, or post an question with the answer, or a link to where you have answered it in the past.

I'll start by giving links to some of the sites that my wife and I studied prior to becoming joining the tandem club.

The Proper Method by Bill McCready

Essential Information for First Time Tandem Buyers & Riders (Part of Tandemgeeks site)

Sheldon Brown

There are many more but this is where we started about 3 years ago.

I'd vote for:

- Zona's recent thread on the magazines. Good info and history peppered throughout that thread.
- An IP, OOP discussion thread
- An S&S thread
- A links thread (maybe extend the magazine thread)

Potential other sticky's
- A climbing thread
- A fit thread
- A wheelset thread
- An Independent pedaling thread
- A rally/tour thread (especially geeks recent one regarding tactics to successfully enter popular rallies)
