Re: 3 Person Bike

Wow that is some serious weight on that bike. If one of the passengers shifts their weight no way I could hold that sucker up.

Then there is always the question why??

And is it legal??

Re: 3 Person Bike

I briefly looked into whether it was legal in Illinois to carry my two kids on the bike. (I never did it except down our quiet neighborhood street a couple times)

I think what the statute said was there has to be footpegs(or equivalent) present for each passenger.
