Product Description

The Towbuddy allows you and your child to explore further by attaching them safely and securely to your bike and travelling at your speed. The fork stabiliser arm keeps the child’s fork straight whilst riding and stops there from being any unexpected changes in balance. Once you arrive at your destination you can securely attach the Towbuddy to your bike without tools using the included stow attachment bracket. And when you are ready to go again simply extend the arm and attach using simple quick release mechanisms.

QUICK, EASY AND SAFE No tools needed. The design of the Towbuddy means you can easily attach and detach the bar to your child’s bike. The easy stow design means that you can also easily stow the bar out of the way whilst not in use. This means that your child can ride independently or attached to you; quickly, easily and safely.

ALWAYS IN CONTROL, The fork stabiliser means you are in total control of both yours and your child’s bike. By keeping the child’s bike forks straight and still, there won't be any unexpected changes in balance. The head hitch connection is also simple to slide into place and with the included quick-release securing pin you can rest assured that it is secure.

Tag-A-Longs Guide

What is a tag-a-long?

Tag-a-longs are a simple but fantastic invention which is great for longer outings with younger children. It’s essentially a children’s bike minus the front wheel, which is easily attached to most adult bikes. The child can then pedal along, but can opt out if they start to tire.

Who needs a tag-a-long?

Tag-a-longs tend to be used by children between the ages of 4 and 6, and the child needs to be relatively confident at cycling. As their section is held up by your bike, it doesn’t matter if they aren’t used to riding without stabilisers, as balance isn’t required. Tag-a-longs make longer journeys much more interesting for children and also easier for parents as you can keep up a faster pace and not have to worry about cutting a ride short.

What are the choices?

Tag-a-longs are available in a variety of styles and colours, so hopefully you can coordinate with your bike and suit the style requirements of your younger rider. Tag-a-longs will fit to most 26”/700c bikes and can be equipped with chainguards, mudguards, racks and even jaunty pennants. Folding frames are great for simple storage.

What should I buy with it?

Sleeve hitches are available to help with the fit. Don’t forget a helmet for your charge, along with refreshments for long journeys and sun cream for sunny days.

Anything else?

Bear in mind that tag-a-longs are single speed and do not have brakes. If your child has progressed to a bike with brakes and gears, they may get a little frustrated that they cannot control the bike (this obviously applies to steering too).
