Plastic Adaptive Pedals by Avenue Trikes, 1 pair, 9/16" for the Buddy Bike.
If the front seat rider of the Buddy Bike has trouble maintaining their feet on the pedals, it is a good idea to add an adaptive pedal or exerciser pedal for safety. These Plastic Adaptive Pedals by Avenue Trikes offer more security for riders who tend to wiggle a lot or who need extra help due to physical issues. For riders who just need a little extra help holding their feet on the pedals the Sunlite Flat Form Exerciser Pedals are a better choice.
These Plastic Adaptive Pedals have a 9/16" thread and are made in the USA by Avenue Trikes. The pedals are adjustable for a variety of foot sizes. These pedals will help Buddy Bike riders who need a little extra help keeping their feet on the pedals and also fit recumbent trikes and can provide support for those who have difficulty maintaining their feet on pedals in a vertical position.
Purchase includes 1 set (right and left) pedals.
Some pros and cons of using these pedals on a Buddy Bike as provided by a family who is using them:
• Two straps to help riders with motor challenges to maintain their feet on the pedals
• Easy to install
• They make riding together possible!
• Without a front rider's feet strapped in to stabilize the pedals, they rotate and may scrape the ground.
• It may take two people to help the front rider safely mount the bike and to strap their feet into the pedals.
