Tandem for 5'4" and 6+ child

Posted By: Craig
Date: 21 April 2009

Hi,

Our six year old is about to graduate from the trailer bike & cross bar seat. We still need to tow the trailer with the two younger ones on the school run but not on our small tours - I get the trailer (and the panniers) on longer runs :-o

A tandem appears to be the obvious choice. Has any one any advice on the following:

1. A child back or an adult tandem with kiddy cranks?
2. Would a tandem still be rideable without the stoker (After drop off) with the trailer behind
3. Makes of tandem we should be looking for, bearing in mind most trips will be regular and between 1 and 3 miles but we do intend to do a small tour of between 50/100 miles every year.

Cheers

C
