Help Identifying a tandem bike
#1
My son, who is the consummate adventurer, has left me a Tandem bike to sell (to help finance his current biking tour), he has left me at a disadvantage as I don't really know what to do to identify the bike. I have noted all the marks on the bike, and was wondering if some kind soul could help me to figure out what this is. He and his girlfriend took the bike on a six week tour from Oregon through California and loved loved loved the bike. The following is all I could find on the bike. I would love to get more info and/or to find out what is good (or bad) about the bike. Thanks - a frazzled, but supportive mom!

Trek T100 Double Track
There are numbers on the very bottom - Trek 985 667 (we think, although the number is a but fuzzy), Also a sticker that says 91 0677.
There is also a spot that says this bike conforms to BS6102

I also took all this info off the bike, but I do not know what is standard or not -

Matrix rims - heat treated Titan Tour 700C
Quick Release Hubs
Deore XT Front and Rear Hubs
Shimano Deore XTR Brakes
Shimano Deore Front/Rear Derailers
Shimano Deore Peadal arms (cartridges?)
Center Pull Brakes

I would suggest that you take nice picture of the bike and compoments and emblems, then can better help you

Hi Sherry;

It is very similar to our T50: http://forums.bikeride.com/thread-2920.html

The T50, T100 and T200 share a common frame and were made in the mid 1990s.

They were originally equipped with cantilever brakes - not exactly center pulls.

Here is a T50 for sale in San Jose: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bik/4074163096.html
One of the pictures shows the cantilever brakes.

The components you list were standard on the T100.

The Trek T50/T100/T200 were great tandems; now they are considered a bit on the heavy side, but still quite desirable. Read this: http://www.gtgtandems.com/tech/cheap.html
