I had been looking for a tandem for quite some time for my girlfriend and I. Scoured craigslist and ebay looking for a tandem that could fit myself (5'9") and my girlfriend (5'2") for many months to no avail. Then I saw the Periscope and had to have it. Was concerned that the frame might have some flex but it has been rock-solid for us. This tandem descends wonderfully and has no problem going 25mph on the flats. The components on our 2007 Periscope and top-notch and perform well for our needs. The shifts are crisp and the mechanical brakes work well. The stopping power is there but not like hydraulic brakes so takes a bit more finger pressure. When we go on extended rides I put on the rear rack that fits the welded-on bosses and can carry quite a bit. Our model has the steel fork so perhaps a carbon fork would dampen the road a bit even though it is not bothersome. Overall, if you want a tandem where you can put stokers of varying sizes on the back this is the one for you.

Strength:

No other tandem can be as versatile. I purchsed this to ride with my 5 year-old daughter. With crank shorteners added and extending the stoker bar, she was confortable and safe. This tandem can easily adapt from my now 6-year-old stoker to my wife or friend in 10 minutes of adjustments. All of the chosen componets have worked seamlessly and the frame construction and paint is gorgeous.

Weakness:

The tandem has none. However, if I had it to do over again, I would have chosen the 700c wheel over the 26" since 99% of our riding will be on the road.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE CO-MOTION PERISCOPE "SCOUT" 26" WHEEL TANDEM.
