riding tandem on a bicycle is a great joy made difficult by the single-service design of the pedal-driven vehicle. often the weight of an additional passenger creates balance issues, rooted in the a less-than-optimal positioning of the foot pedals. estonian company vigurvant‘s ‘tandem extension bicycle pedal’ is a stainless steel device that works in two positions; one as a closed normal pedal and the other open so that the tandem rider can assist in cycling.
