      Both of my girls were 5 when they learned to ride w/o training wheels. They stoked on the T900 at 4-5. It was the perfect trainer for my family. The T900 was inexpensive, I added a kickstand and removed the rear suspension seatpost to accommodate my ladies as an extra height adjustment. It is rock solid & fits in the back of my truck. Everyone digs it.

      Comments:

      I bought this bike to add a new healthy dimension to our relationship. My sweetheart was not a real cyclist so I didn't want to commit to a high end machine. This bike has fit the bill and then some. We ride three to four days per week in all but cold weather. Our average rides are about fifteen miles, but we have logged as much as sixty on a trip around Marthas Vineyard. After 1600 miles the only component that shows significant wear is the rear timing chainring. Not too bad considering that I'm a 260 lb. construction worker. My only want would be for a more powerful braking system. With my weight and panniers loaded with gear, I would like to stop faster. We love the bike. It draws lots of smiles and friendly comments from spectators.Thanks to Trek and my local bike shop.

        Great ENTRY level Tandem... I'm not a big fan of the grip shifting, but I can remedy that easily enough. The bike shop was able to configure the T900 for me (6'4" male captain) and my female stoker (5'9") with appropriate seats and handlebars easily (@ no charge - kudos). The rear brake is a little weak, but I am working on a disc brake solution. Overall, build quality is great, but I am concerned about the stoker seat post bending b/c the rear cross tube intersects in the middle (not the top).

          Comments:

          When my wife and I decided on a tandem it was because we wanted to do something together that would be good for us. We didn't realize it would also give us so much enjoyment of sharing our time together. We're not cold weather riders so in Wisconsin our months are limited, but we still manage to put on over 1500 miles a summer. Not bad for seniors.

            We purchased this Trek so that my 8-year-old daughters could learn to ride on the road with their dad (aka, me). It is one of the few tandems that, with slight tweaking, can be ridden by short (48") stokers without the torture of bolt-on crank shorteners and/or kidback sets. By replacing the stoker seatpost with a non-suspension one, the seat with a Serfas gel youth saddle and getting short crank arms (135mm in our case), our 8-year-olds were able to ride on back without issue, just like a "real" stoker (we have twins, but only one rides at a time!). For the price, it can't be beat.

            I have this bike and i pull a trek trailer with it. I take my wife and 2 kids out for a bike ride. Never have to stop for any one. I think it needs a kick stand why lay down [$] on the side walk. But in all a very good time for every one in my family. When my wife and I go bike I don't have to wate for her.

            I bought this model, sight unseen, as it was still in initial production; I had a two-month wait, but was not disappointed when it arrived. I have had the bike for well over a year and have had no problems as of yet. The bike is heavy in a good kind of way, in that it is very stable, rugged, and reliable. The bike is loaded with features, and is adaptable for even more. The only real inconvenience is that the bike has no integral kick-stand and really cannot accomodate one.

              This is our third tandum. The first two were klunkers. My wife and I just completed our first organized ride -- Cycle Zydeco -- where you ride and eat your way thru Cajun country, 200 miles in four days. The bike did great. We did fine. We had thought about buying a more expensive bike, but we've decided against it: there's no reason to do so. We might buy a different set of tires and/or rims for pure road riding.

                Comments:

                We chose the T900 because it was the only tandem that came with a standard small sized stoker's position, 14.5". Originally we thought, if we like it we'll go to a more expensive Cannondale or Co-motion which would have to be custom made to suit the size of my wife. Now, after three years, it turns out, the bike is great. We've added fenders and racks and have taken it on three trips abroad, France, Italy and Austria. It handles really well, and the components, even though they're not the top of the line work without a hitch. The grip shift is more flexible than the rapid fire which on a tandem is useful. It comes equiped with eyelets on the front fork so outfitting is not problem. The rims haven't been adjusted and we haven't replaced any parts. It definitely earns the five star rating.
