I know I should be posting this in the WTB section but I thought that it would be better if I posted here. I have two twin girls that love to ride with me. My wife also enjoys riding but struggles to pull a standard tagalong. I want to do longer rides with my girls and a double/tandem tagalong for children would be ideal. I have a trailer but they have outgrown that and want to pedal now. It is very difficult to find one and if someone has one not in use and willing to sell it I would appreciate it. I live in Green Bay, WI so local pickup would be great but I will also pay for shipping. Thanks.:)

Adams no longer manufactures the tandem trailercycle. I believe the CPSC revoked the certification.

What kind of $$$ are we talking here? Santana has a category they call Family bikes. One or more stokers' seats can be rigged with kids' conversions. Your whole family, both 5 yos' and wife could be on one machine, all pedalling.
At a bike event in Boulder Colorado I saw a quad bike with four adults, with a tag along bike with one kid on it, all pulling a Burley trailer with two little kids in it - 7 people.

I spoke with several bike shops and they told me that they are no longer manufacturing tandem trailers because of "legal issues". I have seen them on the streets so they are still apparently legal to use. THe quad bikes I have seen but seem too bulky for me to set up and for recreational use and I want to be the one to be trailing the children since my wife is not into cycling as much as I am. By the way, I will not be taking the kids on the streets, more on trails and bike paths.
You should post this in the tandem section.
Lots of info there for you.

Just thinking while prerusing the posts here...
Could you simply attach one "tag-a-long" to another one, and attach those two to the front bike?

Tried attaching two tagalongs sequentially and I do not recommend it as it is extremely unstable. I will repost this in the tandem section.

Then maybe you need a rig like this! :rolleyes:
