I was thinking of doing a crowdfunding project based on this:
Do you think they will sell?

Will it sell? depend on price I would imagine.

How much will you be asking punters to stump up and what time frame for delivery?

When it's done, the idea is that it'll be less than a tag along, and you can have one as quick a the postman can get it there. Smile

But for now its just an idea.

I like that!
I'm wondering if a bigger version might be a good alternative to a tandem for disabled/partially sighted riders...

I actually rode a full size bike, where the kids bike is now. My 16 year old son rode the adult's bike. It was really unnerving for me because I wanted to turn the handlebars and they had a life of their own. I couldn't turn them. My son was wearing the trousers that day. But it wasn't really meant to be used with a smaller adult than the passenger. I am not sure I would recommend it.

I love this concept.
If the linkage is lightweight then it can be stowed away and used on demanding rides when the child is saying they can not peddle on their own and you can just clip it on and get them back home. Ditto for when the traffic is very bad.
