Buddy Bike Features - Click for PDF view



The unique handlebar setup of the Buddy Bike allows the front rider to feel the steering movements while the rear rider has the leverage and control as well as brakes and shifters. The front rider holds onto the smaller set of bars, which have an additional rear brake to contribute to braking power (on most models). Both sets of handlebars are fully adjustable and should be customized by your bike shop during assembly.



FOLD OUT FOOT PEGS (sold separately)
Fold out foot pegs that easily attach to the bike frame, offer a foot rest out of the way of the pedal path for smaller front riders or riders who may tire easily on longer rides. Front riders must have an inseam of 25" to reach the pedals.
