Viking Saratoga

Posted By: Stephen Willetts

I have seen the Viking Saratoga model advertised for sale at 300 and wonder if it's any good. Does anyone have experience of it? Or would we be better off saving up for something more exotic?
It seems well specified with disc brakes which seem like a good idea on a tandem. Twist grip gear change seems cheap and cheerful, I would expect to use them until they fail and then upgrade the gear change system.
Is alloy a good material for a tandem? I would have thought good old-fashioned steel with brazed lugs would be better.
