Since my wife doesn't know how to ride a bike (and refuses to learn), our only options was to try a tandem. If you've been looking you will know that they can get really expensive, and i wasn't sure how she would take to riding. So, we opted for this "entry" level tandem. We were not disappointed at all. She can now enjoy our rides with the kids (in the past she had to walk). The enjoyment we've both had is well worth the $$ we spent. Frame is bit heavy but solid. took me about 3 hours assembly from opening of box to maiden voyage. Did not touch any of the Shimano gears (adjustment), did adjust the brakes, seats, handlebar, etc... But again, nothing too difficult. Any bad notes? well i'm not a fan of the white wall tires, so i replaced them with all black, kevlar tires, and while i was there, i replaced the inner tube to flat-deterrent type. I would have appreciated quick releases on the seats and front tire, but those are easily replaceable as well. All in all this bike has surpassed my expectations for the $$ we paid.
