    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.

    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.

    I wish I knew what was in the OP, from the responses to this thread it sounds like it's quite funny!

    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:okay:.
    You see it's true what they say, a hundred words is worth a picture any day:smile:
