Carbon Back-To-Back Cancelled

It was a nice dream, but I reached the conclusion this week that a one of a kind carbon fiber back-to-back tandem is not in the cards for me anytime soon. I got an estimate to build the CF frame from scratch and from that I figured the whole bike would have cost me around $10,000. That's alot of money for a small increase in speed over the Barcroft back to back tandem. I don't mind spending it for a unique product like this, but I am also mindful that it is unlikely I would be able to resell the bike and get my money back. So, it looks like I will begin the kitchen redo that my stoker has been pushing for in the alternative.
