The low (or lack of) entry and various customisations makes it an easy bike to use with people who are no longer able to ride bikes independently.
The easy-pedalling tandems have an (optional) freewheel setting to determine how much the other passenger pedals along. With the freewheel hub, the driver can adjust the way the passenger pedals along.
With control on the front, the freewheel hub has two settings:
- The pedals of the passenger move along with the pedals of the main rider. The passenger needs to pedal along.
- The pedals of the passenger move independently from the pedals of the main rider. The pedals move freely and the passenger cannot pedal along.
Control from the back of the Tandem:
In case of control from the back of the tandem, there is a third setting. In that setting, the pedals of the passenger move independently from the pedals of the main rider. The passenger can pedal along.
The Twinny tandem and the Twinny Plus tricycles are also available as take-down versions.
