My 3 1/2yr old daughter has outgrown her kiddie seat (technically she's still within the weight limit but she's not very comfortable in it) and we want to get her a tag-a-long style bike. We haven't really started looking much yet but from what I've seen, we may have two (or more) problems.
First, I am only 5'2 and I have to keep my seat almost the whole way down to ride comfortably. I probably should have bought a smaller bike but this one was free and in great shape! Anyway, I won't be able to attach a trailer bike to my seat post as I've heard they require 2" clearance which I don't have. Second, my daughter can comfortably ride a 12" bike but isn't quite big enough for a 16". Will she be big enough for a trailer bike? We'd rather not get a regular trailer at this point because we don't think we'll get much use out of it. Finally, we'd rather not spend more than $150-$200 for this. We only really ride on weekends if the weather's decent. Probably 30 miles would be our longest ride.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
