Lots of reasons, engineering and practicality issues.
Interesting concept, but two points -
Why isn't he demonstrating with a child on board - ?
The setup is twice the width of a tagalong attachment, which may well irritate following motorists, especially as the setup will probably be moving more slowly than a solo bike.
Steering geometry is disgustingly a mile out.
Reminds me of the old Sidewinder motorcycle sidecar. They were crap too.
Adult gets it wrong, said child hits the kerb
Wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.
I notice you don't ever see how that wooden effort attaches to the frame of the pilot bike.
It's not demo'd with a child on board, although that's a relief, frankly.
It's the most rubbish attempt at a sociable I've seen in a while.
Looks about as practical as this.
Is that Jeremy Corbyn doing the demo?
JC has got more sense!
"Also, if you need to get past parked cars, it's the kid who is going to get doored, so that's a bonus"
I wish I knew what was in the OP, from the responses to this thread it sounds like it's quite funny!
What happened there then? Was it the OP's own design or something?
Wallace and gromit funny this was!
If you think of a motorcycle with sidecar, then think pedal cycle with two wheeled sidecar for a child with its own pedals, and steering linked to the adults cycle steering , then you've got it.
You see it's true what they say, a hundred words is worth a picture any day
