What/Where to Buy >
I am looking for recommendations for a tandem bicycle for my tall (6'3'') husband
and tall (4') son (5 years old). I am contemplating getting one as an xmas present,
but know nothing about them. Any recommendations or advice would be welcome.
My husband bought a tandem about a year ago. He bought one used
because he said it would be the best way to find out what he
really wanted. New tandems are expensive but there are a lot of
used tandems on the market. There is a type of seat extender(?)
for children so the difference in height between your son and
husband shouldn't be an issue. My bottom line advice is to
figure out what you want to spend (check out Craig's list for
ball-park figures) and give your husband a ''good-for'' so he can
pick out what he wants. People who ride a lot really want to
choose their own bike. Fran
