Woo Hoo! My baby just turned one and got a brand new Burley Solo trailer for her birthday. We are now once again a mobile biking family (as opposed to Mom stuck in the basement with her bike on a trainer pedalling madly to Spinervals tapes!)
Anyway, my husband and I are having a discussion about the best way to pull our baby's new chariot. Our choices are:
1. Tandem -- husband is concerned that footprint might be too large and that the whole train might be too difficult to steer. I like this idea because we call can ride together and tandem is big and heavy already (uphill) so trailer wouldn't make any difference.
2. Mountain bike with slicks (his)
3. Touring road bike (mine with granny gear his without)
I bike a lot more than my husband but he is still faster because he is skinny and I'm still trying to take off those pesky baby pounds...
Any thoughts? Any experience pulling a trailer on a tandem.
