Hi all, new to the tandem thing well actually mostly committed to getting one, looking at a used C'dalle mountain tandem on Craig's list that should fit, if not were looking at a new one, but that means less for more.
Anyways, The wife and I like the idea, she rides a lot, but just can't hang with me. I', not an super fast guy but..
Anyways, one of our primary uses will be kids towing, we currently run a train, me on my bike, our 4 year old on a tag along and the little one in a trailer behind the tag a long. The other is social tours, alone time, possibly some trail, we both ride it all.
Anyone try the double kid apparatus off the back of a tandem? Is this doable or insane? I'd hate to drop over a grand to find out it doesn't help with our family rides, or is just unmanageable. In addition to the adult rides, last summer we went on 2 -5 family bike rides a week, regularly riding to various playgrounds after dinner, and quite a few weekend rides of significant length. We enjoy our family bike rides so much, we thought we'd get a bit more together on them.
