              This is my 1st Tandem. I researched every Tandem currently on the market and chose the T-2 based on value and local dealer support. I ordered a Large / Small which will work well for a number of family members and friends. I ended up getting a shorter Captain's stem for my personal fit. The bike is really nice as-is, but we did replace the stock saddles right away. We have a little over 500 miles on the bike and look forward to many more miles & smiles.

                    Bought this bike so my wife would be able to join me on my weekly rides. She isn't comfortable on her single bike, but she absolutly loves riding on this bike. This tandem rides comfortably yet it climbs well. Very stable in the corners and on mountain descents. The adjustable handlebar stem in the rear cockpit doesn't extend far enough to accommodate my wife's short torso, but we changed out the handlebars and the fit is very good for her now

                          I have been looking at tandems for two years now...when I saw this tandem I did not hesitate to go down to my LBS and order one. As an avid cyclist with a racing background I have been looking for a way to include my wife on weekly rides where she was able to enjoy the ride without worrying about shifting gears, navigating traffic and so on. The results speak for themselves...my gal is absolutly giddy about our rides...Loves riding the tandem

                          The ride is very comfortable yet responsive and stable, maneuvers extremely well on descents and though corners. Excellent price point. Excellent craftsmanship

                          The adjustable stem for the stokers cockpit is a bit short for my wife, but we were able to accommodate her fit with flat handlebars.

                                This bike climbs very well, very little flex for a tandem. Handles like a solo bike, dives into turns with no hesitation. The stoker position has lots of room, though the stoker stem is much too short. My stoker is stretched out way to far. Shifts and brakes better t5han expected, I like the inline cable ajusters,but I found that the outer cables were exesivley long and when I cut them I discovered that they were very soft (not shimano cable housings). The best tandem I ever owned (I have 4)and very resonably priced!
