When the rider behind you can hear you moaning every time you catch your boot on a stump over the sound of the engines and you start off in 4th because it hurts too much to lift the leg to downshift, you know its bad. And that was 10 years ago; you're doing good to be walking at this point.

The plush is necessary given the quality of Cleveland roads :(

Here is my Limo and engine


Now this is plush.

And she probably does more talking than pedaling just like mine

Its alot of fun riding up beside a cyclist on a 70# bike with balloon tires a 3 speed hub gear and an 8 yr old stoker.

Ofcourse we don't exactly over take many cyclists as the driver is not exactly a powerful cyclists either, not like your crew.

I have a trail-a-bike, but my son never pedaled. I'm hoping my daughter will.

Not likely. Thats one reason to upgrade to a tandem, at least then their legs have to move.

I made the mistake of buying a cheap trail-a-bike. The thing wobbled from side to side constantly. We used it until she was big enough to reach the pedals of the modified tandem (shorter cranks and smaller seat).

If one of you wants a project tandem I'll pass on the deal I got.

4 or 5 years ago an inmate out of IL had an old mid-70s Columbia tandem they were selling. They wanted about 200+ for it, but everyone wanted it shipped & he was not in the mood for that. I sent him a check for $75 and picked it up at a dealership a few months later. He dropped it off when he had a chance, I picked it up whan I had a chance. (very nice of the dealer)

I do not think I will ever get around to working on it.

All there, one of the top tubes has been welded at the seat post. Old school blade forks. Coaster brakes, flat tires. Chrome fenders. a little rough & rusty, but new tubes/tires and an hours worth of work & you have a runner for two!

Would like it out of the barn.

$75 and come get it......and no, I will not ship it either! Lol.

That's what I thought when I said Western CO earlier. It looks very similar to the trails I rode in Rabbit Valley, CO. We actually rode from CO and into Utah and back on all single track.
