HOW TO CARRY TWO KIDS?
April 2, 2006
Back to questions
I have a baby seat on the back
of my bike and would like to attach a tag-a-long bike also.
Can this be done? I thought I found pictures of it being
done online, but now I can't find them for the life of me!
I know the Gator towing attachment can't be used, but how
about a regular tag-a-long bike?
A product called Tandette
seems the only such tag-a-long that would work
with a rear child seat. All the other ones attach to the
adults bicycle using an in-line seatpost hitch, which
goes right thru the space where the child seat sits. While
you might find a Tandette on eBay, however, Tandettes
manufacturer no longer makes them.
Which I consider just as wellcuz
I dont recommend you carry two kids the way you propose.
It forces you to provide balance for yourself and both the
kids; if they both happened to lean to the left at once,
itd make toast out of all three of you.
If you cant reasonably put
your kids together into a single two-wheeled trailer, consider
getting a used tandem bike. Put the older child on the back
of the tandem, and tow the younger child with that trailer.
This requires something of an investment, but look: Any
two family members can use the tandem forever, and the trailer
will let you carry groceries and other stuff using any bike.
Plus, itd probably come out cheaper than hospital
