    Tandem for three?

    Is there such a thing? Just wondered? If so, anyone got a pic?

    Funny you should say that. Plenty around made by Thorn in the UK but generraly for two aduls and a younger personBut they make a 3 adult one aswell http://www.thorncycles.co.uk/trident.html

    Then on the ride today I saw one. They were on the way out and I was on the way back so couldn't stop.

    Santana makes them:

    Co-motion makes them:

    most of the major tandem players make triples and quads.

    Santana has built at least one bike for five riders. I wonder how they transport it to and from rides.

    Perhaps the coolest multi rider bike is one that uses S&S couplers so that the bike can be modified to accommodate either two or three riders. They're made fairly close to you right there in California but be sure to take lots of money with you when you go to buy it.

    I know they make them. One of the guys in my club has one, although I dont' have a pic of it. He says it's a bi**h to handle, and I believe it! Here's a pic of a four-fer.

    If, by any chance, someone is looking for a ride for two adults and a little kid, a regular tandem and a "trailabike" type thing might also work.

    I've seen a quint with couplers so it could be transported without a crane.
    It was stiff up-and-down but the owner showed my how noodley (sp??, word??)
    it was laterally. It could really vibrate.

    I used my tandem and a trail-a-bike when my kids were young, it works great. Plus gives them an independent shifter and freewheel for staying at their own pace.

    I've seen a Meridian with seating for five on the Hilly Hundred at least twice. The whole family can ride! Looked at their website (which doesn't seem to exist today) and was impressed with how much it cost. Probably worth every thousand dollars.
