The Buddy Bike is an inline tandem bicycle (bicycle for two) that places the stoker in the front seat while the rear rider controls the steering. It is shorter in length than a standard tandem and has a lower front seat so both riders can safely enjoy the view. The Buddy Bike can support up to 380 pounds; making it the ultimate family bike that can be enjoyed by riders of all ages and abilities. Its features make it especially beneficial for special needs children who otherwise would not be able to experience the thrill of riding a bicycle.

Cycling enthusiasts and taller adult riders will enjoy Buddy Bike Sport BB104-AL-27 which utilizes a Shimano Deore 27 speed hub, Tektro IO disc brakes plus one Tektro side pull brake for the stoker for improved braking power and safety and a Pletscher bi-pod kickstand for stability. With a wide range of gears for better climbing, a suspension fork and thinner, slicker tires, Buddy Bike Sport will provide a smoother ride with less rolling resistance.

New Color is CHROME RED & SILVER. The image above is displaying the previous year's color. The current frame color is chrome red and silver.

For taller riders, Buddy Bike Sport includes increased rear rider leg room and the captain seat tube angle is increased for a more comfortable pedaling. Rear rider leg room can be increased by purchasing the SP600-30.4 seat post which sets back the seat an additional 1.25 inches. For child riders, fold-out foot pegs offer a place to rest their feet out of the pedal path. Set back seat post and foot pegs sold separately.

  • Stoker rides in front while Captain steers from rear seat
  • Lower front seat allows both riders to safely enjoy the view
  • Innovative patented handlebar setup gives child rider a sense of control without being in control
  • Maximum weight 380 lbs. supports two adults to accommodate riders of all ages
  • No height restrictions but rear rider should be able to see over the front riders head to safely steer the bicycle
  • Pedals connected to same drive chain so riders work together
  • Fold-out foot pegs provide foot rest for child riders who can't reach pedals or who may tire easily (Sold separately)
  • The Buddy Bike is up to 15" shorter than a standard tandem bicycle. Try riding both of them, first alone, then with a partner. The compact frame of the Buddy Bike makes it easier to control, and unlike the regular tandem, its fun to ride solo or partnered.
  • The Buddy Bike's compact size also makes it easier to store and transport.
  • LOWER FRONT SEAT puts the smaller rider up front and allows both riders to safely enjoy the view.
  • Pedals work together on same drive chain.
  • The unique handlebar setup of the Buddy Bike allows the front rider to feel all of the steering movements, while the leverage inherent in the extended rear handlebars gives the rear rider total control.
  • Front and rear brakes and the shifters are included in that control. The front rider holds onto the smaller set of bars, which also have rear braking capacity (on most models).
  • Both sets of handlebars are fully adjustable and should be customized by your bike shop during assembly.
  • FOLD OUT FOOT PEGS: provide foot rest for smaller front rider (sold separately)
  • Children can easily hold onto the handlebars and stay seated and balanced, but for the child who can't quite reach the pedals we have optional fold out foot pegs which attach to the frame.
  • Many kids aged five to eight fit that description. Front riders must have an inseam of 25" to reach the pedals. The adjustable seats make it a snap to fit riders of all dimensions.

The Buddy Bike is a fun and SAFE way for your family to exercise. My manufacturer of Buddy Bike’s son, Jesse, has autism and they have been riding the Buddy Bike together since 2003. They ride every weekend traveling over 20 miles each time and ending with a stop for breakfast. They enjoy quality time together and social interaction. The Buddy Bike safely holds a total weight of up to 380 pounds. Two adults can ride together so you will be able to enjoy the Buddy Bike for many years to come. There aren't any height restrictions but it is necessary that the rear rider is able to see over the front rider's head in order to safely steer the bicycle. There aren't any specific age ranges either. As long as a child can sit upright on a bike seat, they can ride the Buddy Bike. For smaller riders (with an inseam of less than 24 inches) fold-out foot pegs provide a place to rest their feet out of the way of the pedal motion path. Foot pegs are sold as an additional option

Many families have been able to obtain to funding assistance for the purchase of a Buddy Bike as "therapeutic equipment". You should check with your family support counselor, case worker, therapist or other medical professional to find out if funding is available through county or state funding and grants. The Buddy Bike has been rated by the National Lekotek Center and is currently listed in their TOP 10 products at www.AblePlay.org. This organization has provided an online listing with extensive information about the Buddy Bike and its applications and benefits for special needs children.

The Buddy Bike is longer than a single bicycle at 83-84" long but shorter than a typical tandem. Due to the longer length of the bike and the configuration, it does take some getting used to and it would be best for you to try a bike.
