Child stoker handlebar options/opinions?
I bought a tandem a month or so ago - a big green 1998 Cannondale RT1000 with low miles. It's pretty nice.
The tandem is sized to fit my wife and me, but I'm wanting to set it up for our oldest child (currently a very tall four-year-old). I'm planning on getting the child stoker kit from chucksbikes.com (PM me if you have a kid stoker kit you want to sell). But I can't figure out what to do for the handlebars for the kid.
I guess the smartest thing to do would be to set up a complete captain's seat assembly with special kid handlebars attached. So I'll need another stoker stem - probably a long one. And for handlebars, I know I could use flipped road bars, but I don't have any in my junk drawer... I was thinking of grabbing a bar of bars off of a kids' BMX bike. What do you think? What do you use?
I can't wait to get this thing set up!
