    tandem for two kids

    Hi. My youngest kids are surviving triplets, and for years (they're almost 6) i've bee riding with them in a trailer. I love it and they do, but it's time for more. I'm looking for a tandem tag along that will hold both of them, they are only 30 pounds a piece, but am concerned about the safety.

    can anyone give me their thoughts - pro's / cons, etc.?

    Also, is the only option the Adams tandem tag along, or is it possible to put two tag alongs in line?


    Thanks!
    Erika

    Ohhh! That is awesome! One of my little ones has mild special needs, and this would be such a better option for him!! Looks like it's worth the wait!!

    I spoke at length with the owner of the company and the single is currently available. The double should be available by the end of the summer. My little girl is 4 years old and 38 pounds and she can just barely reach the pedals on an adams trail a bike. My guess is that would be too big for your twins/triplets. I haven't tried the Adam's compact, but I hear that it does go smaller than the standard size. I would certainly encourage you to look into two compacts if you are wanting an option for this summer. Also Adam's has a seat back rest that might be helpful for your one with special needs.

    adams makes a tandem trail-a-bike:

    http://www.trail-a-bike.com/product/...iginal-tandem/

    They used to make a chair-back kind of add on for smaller kids to use until they grow into the regular bike seat, but they seem to have scaled it up to a full on child seat for up to 40#:

    that doesn't look designed to allow pedaling as best I can tell.
