Team Dollins 2 X 2

When our kids were little we quickly realized there are few sports you can do with little kids. We bought out first Gitane Tandem when our now 30 yr. old daughter was born. I made trailer later that year to carry her in, rather than the Gerry carrier she road in on my back (I know, it sounds insane in today's world!) and she road there for the next 4 yrs, until her brother was born. Then we bought a Cannondale bugger, which worked for 2 yrs. until our then 6 yr. old's legs stuck out the back of the trailer. We sold the Gitane, with it's sloping rear seat tube and bought a Burley Duet. I brazed up a Kid crank and then nobody wanted to ride in the trailer! That winter I welded 2 bikes together, installed a eccentric BB and set it up for my wide adn daughter to ride. All that to say that I've "infected" our kids for life with a great sport.

When Son-in-Law came into the family he was also innoculated with Bike-itis and I found them a used Raleigh tandem, which they road for about 4 yrs. until Grandchild 1.0 came along. Grandpa found them an Adams Trail-a bike single and that lasted until G-child 2.0 came along and grew to riding along stage. Then grandpa found 2 seater Acams on CL. 2.0 is still too small to reach the cranks, but she rides along in the child seat mounted to the rear. The family that bikes together...well, rides together!

Right there with you but no grand kids yet. We also had single trailer, double trailer, tag a long but then youngest child went to a single.

Playing with the bikes is almost as much fun as riding!
