The idea behind Dually Bikes started the summer of 2014. Jeff set out to teach his grandson how to ride a bike. The little guy did his best to keep the 12-inch bike balanced but every time he turned, one of the training wheels would lift up off the ground. So, they took the training wheels off. Unfortunately, his grandson promptly fell and wasn’t interested in riding again for weeks. So…the training dragged on…and on…and was filled with more than a few tears.
Eric and Jeff spent the rest of the winter talking about bikes, learning to ride and how to deliver a solution that would work better for children and adults. They jumped in producing dual-tire prototypes and tested with kids. After receiving rave reviews from parents and selling through their stock, they applied for a patent on the design and Dually Bikes was born.
