We've taken the plunge and ordered the Peapod LT. While Alta can hold onto the stoker bar, we simply don't trust her ability to manage staying on the back of the X by herself. As a person with Down Syndrome, she has low muscle tone. Being herself, she's pretty amazing for someone with DS. However, we'd rather play it safe when it comes to being on the back of the bike. She's a small person, weighing just over 30 lbs, standing just about 39 inches, and being all of 6 years old. She should fit for quite a while. The Peapod will make commuting with her much easier. We've used a trailer for a few years and have liked it, but are ready to add more "freedom" more frequently (2 wheels = much more ease of transportation than 4 in a 2 + 2 configuration).
