tandem bicycle extension pedal by vigurvant


the bicycle extension pedal in its open position

 

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.
