Hi! I'm a newb.
This is my intro and my question.
I'm a mom, 29, on a weight loss journey. (20 lbs down, a little less than 20 to go.)
My husband is Mike, 32, and 6'6". Meanwhile my height is 5'1". (This is all relevant, I promise.)
My kids are Emily, almost 7, legally blind in one eye, patching 10 hrs/day with limited vision. Charlie is almost 3, and is a hyperactive chimpanzee.
So, I bought a used beach cruiser on CL last year. At some point I attempted to ride with my son in a rear baby seat...I didn't even ride to the end of the block. It was majorly fish-tailing, didn't feel secure, major wobble. I did some research and found that it's harder for smaller individuals to ride with bigger kids. So I haven't used it, gave it to a friend, didn't think much of it.
Recently I bought a bike tagalong (the bike that hitches to a grownup bike...makes it like a tandem) so that I can ride with my daughter, without worrying so much about how well she is/isn't seeing. We took it for a test drive around the block, and there's a little wobble...not too much, but some.
My question...Could this be my bike? Could it need an alignment or something? (Do bikes need those?) Or is it just getting used to the tagalong bike? Or maybe Emily's balance is a little off, and it's making the bike wobble?
Any advice welcome.
PS. Is there a FB group? I'm on there more.
