Strengths:    Quality build, stiffness, comfort, most components for price

Weaknesses:    Stock saddles way too wide for anything but around the block riding and weak brakes (fixed with KoolStop pads)

Bottom Line:   
My wife and I have been riding bicycles for over 30 years, first road bikes and then mainly mountain bikes the past 10 years. She has always been about 30% slower than me. No problem with trail riding, as all of the riding is over various loops and we frequently pass. However, it has been a problem with road riding. We have debated a tandem for several years and finally decided to get one this year. We wanted to stay around $1000, so the T900 and KHS Sport were the ones to consider. We decided on the T900 because of the aluminum frame, Avid brakes and twist shifters, which I like for road and rail trail riding. The bike is a new 2008 model, which we got exactly 1 month ago. I'm unhappy with the dealer, as he told us that he got it in 2010 and charged us the 2010 price. We later discovered that it was a 2008, but this review is about the bicycle. The first change was to exchange the wide saddles for proper saddles. The SR Freeway's are gel and comfortable. The next was to switch to Shimano clipless pedals. We chose Shimano for commonality with my mountain bike and our exercise bike. The stock 1.95 tires are fine for gravel roads and rail trails, but too slow for me for road riding, so I switched to narrower and higher pressure tires. Adds at least 10% speed, likely more. The brakes will stop us, but not the way I would like. I like the Avid SD7's on my mountain bike, so I decided to just switch pads on the SD3's. What a difference – much better braking. Overall, a very fine and versatile tandem for the price after making some minor changes.

Strengths:    Fits a large captain and small stoker perfectly. Reasonable price. Good quality.

Weaknesses:    Rigid fork really not suited for offroad. Impossible to wheelie over obsticles like you can on a single.

Bottom Line:   
Was looking for a tandem for my eight year old and I to ride on railtrails and light singletrack. Found a like new condition used bike. Had money to upgrade brakes, shifters, seats, pedals, bars and stem. Very happy so far. May try a mountain bike race, anyone race with their child?

Strengths:    Can fit small riders.
A great first tandem. Care free shifting
If you change out handlebars, it's a lot lighter.

Weaknesses:    It's not a speed demon. Difficult to convert to 700 cc (this is not what bike was intended to do though)

Bottom Line:   
A solid product that my small boys and I could ride.

We went to a few races with it too.

Light enough for captain to lift through a muddy race circuit.
