best tandem for cycling with child

Posted By: Amanda Morris

I am very new to this but we are at the stage where our son is 4 and a half now and we are considering the future.

We have managed so far with our chariot trailer and lately he has been on his bike with a trailgator BUT this won't work on longer cycling hols.

We are also considering using it for the school run so the question is as follow:

is there a bike that both I and my partner can use - eg pilot interchangeable with our son as stoker?

My partner usually has a 22" frame size (6'2") and I would have a 17* frame (5' 4").

Our son would most likely need cranks wouldn't he (although I am aware that there are child back tandems).

I guess there isn't such a bike but this would make life so much easier!

If we don't use it for the school run then my partner would be the pilot and so this would make life easier of course.

Any ideas gratefully received. thanks
