Perfect Christmas gift. Treat yourself and your tandem team mate to the comfortable ride of a carbon tandem. Ride longer, farther, or feel less weary at the end of your ride. I am selling a perfect Santana Beyond carbon fiber tandem bicycle. The tandem looks like new. Always stored in the house. Beautiful bike. Not a scratch on it. Medium size frame. The captain position measures 55 cm from the top of the seat post collar to the center of the crank spindle with it rotated to the bottom of the bottom bracket. The stoker's measures 48.5 cm. Here is the component list: Ultegra FlightDeck 9 speed brifters; FlightDeck computer; FSA Carbon Pro 175/175 crankarms mounted to a tandem version of Shimano's pipe-splined bottom brackets; 11-34 cassette; Chris King 31.8 sealed bearing tandem diameter headset; Reynolds Ouzo-Pro tandem carbon fork; Avid linear-pull brakes; Shimano Sweet 16 wheels with titanium skewers (can swap in a set of Mavic 520 40 spoke wheels if desired); Tamer Carbon Pro seat post for
the captain; Tamer Carbon Pivot seat post for the stoker; Terry
Butterfly saddle for the stoker; Oasis captain's saddle; no pedals. The frame has the mounting lug for a disc brake and the rear wheel has the adapter.
The Beyond measures 55 cm from the captain's seat tube to the steer tube. It measures 69 cm from the captain's seat tube to the stoker's
seat tube. Both of these measurements are center to center. There is a
2.7 cm spacer between the headset and the captain's stem. The captain's
stem is 70 mm with a 6 degree rise. Both seat post collars extend 3 cm
above the top tube. The frame geometry is stock Santana.

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.
