There have been a number of scam transactions attempted on the site recently – we strongly suggest that you use a third party, such as a bike shop or escrow company for all transactions not done in person.

Beautiful Light Toreador Red tandem, size medium. Equipped with Ultegra 10sp triple, 52x39x30, with 10x40 cassette. TRP Hy/Rd cable/hydraulic disc brakes front/rear. Gates carbon synchro belt. Dyad rims and DT Swiss hubs
28mm Gatorskins. Captain standover is 29", stoker adjusts to accommodate anyone from 3'6" to 6'3". Pedals included, electronic mounts not included. I will include different saddles. The ones pictured will not be included. There are some minor scratches on the top tube where I scuffed it with a cleat. No dents. Bike has never been crashed. Selling because we recently purchased a coupled travel tandem. This is a great, fast road tandem. We have enjoyed it but have no need for two tandems. Bike is currently in ABQ. I regularly travel between LBK & ABQ and can show it in either location. Additional photos at: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1j_DC5mFWbn1zRXQi8Zp81DQgrHkd5YmT. I'm not opposed to shipping at actual packing and shipping costs.

The TCA cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of any ad placed on this website. Therefore, buyers should be mindful that internet-based transactions — long distance, or in person, have certain inherent risks. Buyers and Sellers are both at risk for theft by fraud and any face-to-face meetings also present risks related to theft as well as personal safety. Please take time to do some research about buying and selling from one of the many articles that you’ll find on line, such as one of these:

You may also want to think about the following (courtesy of Mark Livingood):

Ideally, most buyers and sellers prefer to find one another in close enough proximity to permit a face-to-face meeting, a physical inspection of the tandem and, of course, a test ride; perhaps even an extended test ride. Fortunately, at least in all my dealings with private sellers, buyers and tandem-specialty dealers or builders, long distance transactions have always been quite pleasant and ended up with no surprises. So, while there is some degree of risk, if you’re willing to trust your “gut” on a long distance transaction neither you nor the other party should end up being any worse for wear if everyone keeps their cards on the table throughout the transaction.

NOTE: A detailed sales contract should be drawn up for all long distance transactions. Language should be included that spells out all provisions regarding who has responsibility for the tandems shipment, under what conditions the buyer may decline to accept the tandem at the time of delivery and who will bear the responsibility for shipping costs. As an example, sales agreements should plainly state if the seller clearly mis-represented the condition or features of the tandem, or it was damaged in route, they bear the burden for a remedy subject to approval by the buyer. If the buyer simply changes their mind for any reason and no longer wants the tandem, they bear the burden for all shipping costs. In some cases, buyers and sellers may want to use a trusted, local bike shop as an agent for receiving and inspecting the tandem to protect their mutual interests.

The use of a third party escrow service may also aid your transaction.
