Product Description

The Trail-Gator Bicycle Tow Bar converts an ordinary child's bike into a safe, towable trailer bike, whenever desired. To ride attached, simply unclip the tow bar from the stored position on the adult bike, extend it, and connect it to the receiver, which is mounted on the child's bike. When the child's bike is connected, the front wheel is lifted off the ground and a stabilizing bar prevents the handlebars from turning, leaving the adult in control of steering. Children can choose to coast or pedal while they are being towed, making the ride much easier for them.

Features

  • Fits 16"  - 20"  tire diameter size child bikes
  • Adult bike minimum size tire diameter 25" (63.5cm)
  • Tow bar receiver fits child bikes with head tubes up to 45mm (1.77") wide in diameter and expans for bolting distance of 105mm (4.1") for top and bottom U-bolt spacing.
  • Fits adult bike seat post diameter 1" (25.4mm) - 1.25" (31.8mm)
  • For use with children up to 70 pounds (32kg)
  • Adult rider must weigh at least twice that of the child rider.
  • Child bike must have rear free wheel capability. (Bike capable of coasting with out pedaling)

Not as Easy as it looks!

Firstly, the speed and packaging of this item was excellent and the packet of haribos for my 5 year old was the perfect distraction while we tried to put the item together! However, the some stages of the instructions are not clear and we had to get two peoples opinions to make sure the item was safe. Once up and going it seems to work well!

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).
