Trail-a-bike for heavy child

Hi, my 9 yr old is 56" tall and 92 lbs., which is beyond the load rating of 85 lbs. for the Adams trail-a-bike for older kids, aged 7-10. Anyone know of another trail-a-bike brand that has a heavier load rating?

Thanks.

You really need a tandem. It will fit you and your child much longer than any TAB they might fit in the near term.

Agree; tandem, or put the child on a separate bike - unless there's a physical or other reason s/he can't ride.
