Except fro the very steep price tag, it seems like just what I am looking for, and so I am trying to figure out if it would be worth scrimping and saving for. I have a 3 year old and a new baby, so I could theoretically use it for a long time if we were to buy it. Also, I think the basket on front option looks very nice for errands once the kids outgrow the seat.
Thank you for your time.
If money's no issue, go for it.
Without having done a lot of research, it appears like this Kidztandem is a very
limited use investment. Can this tandem be converted to accomodate
the kids after they've grown larger? (They tend to do that quite quickly.)
If it were my choice I would either go with a trail-a-bike type, or a
standard tandem with a child stoker conversion kit. The Trail-a-bike
is very cost effective, and the standard tandem will become a life long
treasure which you and your children or spouse can use indefinately.
My experience.....we invested in a Burley Mixte frame Tandem (top tube
captain and step thru for the stoker) complete with a child conversion kit.
All three children are now either in college or in the work force, but when
they visit we can still take the tandem out for a spin. They loved the tandem as
youngsters and they still enjoy it as young adults.
