Not true

There are a number of ebikes with 700 x 28 tires. I have an Orbea that came that way. Cannondale, Specialized and other mainstream bike companies make such bikes.

Get the SPD pedals

My grandson was about the same weight when we put him in SPD pedals. No problem getting in or out on the tandem. Sounds like you are really set on getting him in the road pedals. I think you would...
