Time to sell!  We bought the bike when our daughter got big enough for the child stoker kit . Too quickly she insisted on riding her own bike, and now she's going off to college!

Purchased new in 2005, and in still like new condition, ridden less than 300 miles.  Still has original 700 28c tries on it! Bike can be shipped in two boxes.  Can dissemble at the connector lugs and convert to a tandem as well.   Pedals not included.  Great for touring, includes rack.  Drum and caliper brakes.  Crank arm adjustment piece is included if requested..  Also have a child stoker kit for sale at $100.  Pedals not included with sale.  Bike is in Southern California for pick up or can be shipped via UPS or FEDEX in two boxes.  Weighs about 45 LBS without pedals or rack.

Size Large Frame.   Top tube is 29.5" off ground.  Captain seat collar is currently  34" off ground, co pilot is 31.5" and stoker is 30.5".   The captain's seat height can go down about 3-4" or up a bunch from where I keep it.  Captain's seat can lower such that TOP of saddle is 37.5" off ground,  34.5 " from pedal when fully extended  and 28" from center of crank.

 I am 6'1" with a 32.5" pant inseam,  wife and daughter are about 5'3".  If your co pilot is less than 5'3" this bike is too big for you. 

Chain ring is 30-42-53 and Shimano 9 speed cassette is 11-34.  Photo shows a red saddle on middle seat.  I will switch that back to the original black saddle. Includes Flight desk system monitor, rack and cow bell (shown).

Was over $11,000 new and is in pristine condition.  Todays new cost is over $12K plus tax.  I will ship the bike  in the US for $150.00 max to buyer.  Or if you are in the LA Area you can pick it up for free.  International shipping is available on request.

SCANDIUM FRAME NOTES

When Jim Easton inked a deal with the world’s only source of refined scandium, the rare element found only in Soviet missiles and fighter planes became available to the world of sports. When added to Easton’s 7000-series aluminum, Scandium aligned and tightened the grain structure to create home run-hitting baseball bats and race-winning bicycle frames. Unfortunately, Easton naively used “Scandium” to identify their revolutionary new alloy, thus paving the way for counterfeiters and con-artists. Because international law won’t protect the name of an element, anything can be branded Scandium, even if it doesn’t contain a single molecule of this expensive alloying element.

While Easton's Scandium is a worthy challenger to titanium and carbon tubesets, various builders, magazine test editors and consumers who've only experienced non-Easton “Scandium” haven't a clue. If you're seeking real performance instead of “fool’s gold,” insist on Scandium from Easton.

Santana, in order to gain hands-on experience with this unique alloy, became one of Easton’s initial customers for their Scandium tubing, and used it to build a limited series of Stylus single bikes. Following years of development and testing, Santana and Easton joined forces to create an exclusive Scandium tubeset for tandems. Since Santana alone builds tandems from this material, if you want the planet’s lightest, strongest and fastest aluminum tandem, don't settle for anything less than our Team Scandium
