Bike Friday "Project Q" Bicycle - A foldable tandem that can also be configured as a single! This technology affords cyclists the greatest of flexibility when travelling.
In tandem mode, the bike is adjustable to a wide range of differently sized cyclists, both captain and stoker, maximizing the ability to adjust to various family or group members, including children.
Configured as a single, it turns into a great Bike Friday sport bike.
As Bike Friday puts it,
Your love for travel with a friend and your love to ride a bike with a friend
has brought you to this point. This tandem is great for touring your town or
exploring a continent with your companion. It folds to fit in the back of almost
any vehicle with a healthy trunk and packs into two TravelCases for airline travel
as checked luggage. It truly is the perfect bike for seeing the world as a couple
wanting to see the country from the ground up.
And a Project Q tandem takes the Bike Friday tandem experience one step further: the ability to switch to a single bike, for those times when one of the travelers wishes to take a break, allowing travelling cyclists to explore a variety of edges of adventure.
27 speed gearing: the rear hub is a 3 speed internal hub combined with a 9 speed cassette.
The bike needs new tires but otherwise is in very, very good condition.
Included: travel suitcases, protective shipment padding, seats and a small assortment of Bike Friday tools.

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.
