Discussion in 'Tandem and Other Bikes' started by TVC, 23 Sep 2017.
Ahem! (although mine's a lot more sleek!)
And with a set of gears for each rider, could make mutual / co-ordinated pedalling cadence interesting - !
We don't have a problem! We find it's better than the tandem, as each person can choose a gear to suit themselves- the rule is you just need to feel like you're putting effort in!
They need Ackerman Steering.
I can remember seeing them at Sand Banks in the late 50's early 60's, they looked like fun.
These are not a bad machine. We hired one in Germany, and had a fun few hours on it. They can be steered by either rider, and you each get your own 3-speed hub gear.
Weighs a ton, though.
These I loved on our many childhood Holidays at Trecco Bay, Porthcawl.
You had to pay £1 an hour, plus a £5 deposit. My brother and I would hire one every day at 8am and not take it back till 8pm. We never had our deposit back, but the bloke never cottoned on.
Interesting trike 'thing' that the wee lad next to the Mini Clubman is riding. Presume it was yet another fun thing that holiday camps used to provide - !
Are you sure thats a Clubman? looks very like a Countryman, Thought the Clubman had square grill around the headlights i may be wrong ?
Indeed. I don't remember those though. They must have gone by 1975
The holiday camp is still there and the square has hardly changed at all from that pic
It is owned by Park Dean now
The bikes have sadly gone though.
Not sure what mini that is in the picture.
Indeed not; identifying particular car models isn't my overriding speciality - !
