Aluminum Frame Capabilities

Good Morning All,

Hoping you all might be able to give me some advice concerning the limitations (if any) of my current bike. When riding with my kids I usually ride my Specialized Dolce, just a basic aluminum frame. When riding I usually either tow the WeeHoo, which is a recumbent style tag-along or use a Topeak seat attached to the back of my bike. My question is would this frame allow me to combine these two. The frame of the WeeHoo itself is very heavy, about 40lbs. The child on the WeeHoo is 42lbs and the child in the seat would be 23lbs.

If the individual items work by themselves, I don't see why they wouldn't work together -- provided you can get them to fit
