My wife has been bugging me for a year to get a tandem. I wanted a cool beach cruiser tandem which leaves you with a very short list (from what I know ). The added bonus, when I got home my 7 year old daughter hopped on the back and I put my 3 year old boy in the trailer way behind and we were just tickled all the way to trader joes and back. She couldn't get enough of it. I think I need a three person bike so my wife will fit also. Just kidding. Anyway I think these were around $900 new, I paid $300 with a three hour drive to Pasadena and back from Huntington Beach. I really don't know much about Phat or this model any imput or ideas would be really appreciated. Thanks for looking!
