We just got our new to us Tandem Trike
 
We used to have a nice DF Trek Recreational Tandem back in 2011 but due to my Reiter's Syndrome (arthritis), causing problems with my knees from holding up a passenger and a heavier tandem we had to sell it off, we still hoped we'd get a tandem in the future. Well in 2019 we bought a "used" Terra Trike Rover with a "used" Tandem extension kit from Angletech and we are SO HAPPY to be back as a Tandem Team!

Our LBS sold them before they went under. A local couple bought one where the wife was very heavy. She lost quite a bit of weight and they rode it across the country.
Good deal!

Awesome!
 
Congratulations and enjoy!

No more ass-hatchetry for you and your partner! The speed on the flats and descents must be incredible!

Please post after you've gotten some "chair-time" to let us know how it's going!

Edit: I apologize for my excessive use of exclamation points. Unacceptable!

Well, it's Terra Trikes "recreational level" trike tandem, (70 lbs.) so it's not fast, although it does FLY downhill! :) We've put 100 miles on it and so far we are VERY happy with this rig! The gearing is a bit limited as it uses a Efneo 3 speed drive (internal) instead of a "triple chain wheel" and a NuVinci S330 CVT rear hub (internal) instead of a "cassette and rear derailleur" set up. Down the road we will either add, a Rolfoff 14 speed IG hub to replace the NuVinci 330 or just add "E-assist". We are 60+ and could use the "lower" gearing or E-assist for HILLS here in Colorado Springs, CO. Efneo 3 speed drive unit Enviolo CT series CVT rear hub (NuVinci S330 CVT rear hub)
