    Anyone else excited about this? I just bought a used Burly at the LBS and was talking to them about Salsa having a tandem. Time to start saving.

    1 Up tandem rack. Plan on getting one for the Burly. I folded the seats down and took the front wheel off and it was still resting on the front seat of my 4runner.

    I like the idea of a tandem for myself and the wife, but there's a few problems. I'm 6'5", she's 5'4". And that thing is $4k.
    But, since my wife had a bad wreck last fall, I don't know if she'll ever be confident riding on her own again (don't blame her, it was bad). Might be a way to get out and enjoy riding together. But much cheaper options to just "try it out".

    Considering the components and size of the machine, I think it's a fairly reasonable sum of money for it. I really like the idea of having an off-road capable tandem that with a change in tires becomes a touring bike. No need for a second set of rims, just swap out the rubber and it changed character completely.

    The tandem snobs in the Tandem Forum are not impressed:
