I ride a tandem with my 7 y/o daughter. The stoker kit is as low as it can go with out intefering with the bikes pedals. The problem is that she likes to stand going up hills (and it helps!) but the stoker kit tends to slide down and then we have to stop to adjust.
1. Any solutions to making the stoker kit not slide? (FYI this was not a problem last year but she has increased power a lot over the winter.)
2. The other question I have is if anyone has used a crank shortener? It states that is it is used for child riders. She needs about 2-3 inches to reach the pedals without the kit. Here is a link to the shortener that I found. http://www.bikemannetwork.com/biking...CRNKTDM/CR8870
Any help appreciated. We are riding GOBA this summer and I don't want to stop all the time and I want her to cont to love riding.
