I'm looking for any and all advise regading cycling for my brother & his 4 yr old Autistic son. Daniel seems to really get a kick out of going for a ride but has outgrown a regular kid's seat, a trailer is another option but we also came upon this wacky looking bike called a BuddyBike which really seems like the perfect idea. Since Daniel couldn't ride on the back of a tandem this bike puts him in front of you. Does anyone have any experience with it? Seen it? Have any + or - thoughts? Or does anyone have any experiece with other options? The bike is $1,300 with $170 worth of shipping & I'm looking into having a LBS get set up as a dealer. I'll take any info, since we are going to get Daniel on a bike one way or another!

I've seen a tandem where the stoker sits in front in a recumbent postion and the captain sits behind in a conventional position.

The advantage is that it can fit a child or a full size adult.
