I bought one of these so that I could tow my sons bike home after cycling with him to school every day. The price cut and the extra cashback (various sites are offering 4% at the moment) along with free delivery to your local store make this the cheapest price online at the moment, I think.

Does this keep the kids bike upright (kids bike is still on stabilisers) when being towed?
Also, if the kids bike has stabilisers, do we need to take them off first?
Thanks for any answers. D.

they do keep it upright fyi in the picture on the website the stabilisers are turned upside down.

Firstly, this is a great piece of kit and we get out at least once per week weather dependent. When most people see it, they either smile or if they are children, they always remark on how cool it looks.

Our little boy is 3 and he still needs stabilisers. You can leave them down but I wouldn't advise doing this due to the drag and the noise. I either turn them upside down or remove them - very easy to remove in any case so most of the time they are off nowadays. Linking the bikes up taking a couple of minutes once you've sussed it out.

One thing to note is that some bikes have pedals that turn when the back wheel turns - in this case the child will be forced to pedal when you pedal - and it could get very fast. Thankfully, the 3 years old bike allows him to free wheel - though I often tell him to stop being lazy. ;-) Our 5 year old bike has the problem identified (i.e. no free wheeling without pedalling) so would not work as well as the youngest ones bikes does.

Just for anyone else wondering - the discount comes off when you go to checkout!
I thought I'd missed the £37 price.
#6
If I add to the basket it still shows as £49.99?

Maybe the deal is over?
#7
deal not over as poster above said - discount added at checkout

Thanks OP - just what I was looking for and just about a tenned cheaper than elsewhere H&R

Still seems a lot of money for what it is, but if that's the best price out there I guess it's hot.

sweet, quidco just tracked at the full price of £50 giving cashback of £2.50 :D

that's 10 quid cheaper than Amazon and £20 cheaper than tesco direct.

It is a great piece of kit. My 4 year old son still has stabilisers on and we go along fine on it but we have raised them up quite a bit.

It does draw a lot of attention from people who think it looks really cool. Easy to detach as well if your child wants to do some cycling on there own.

Much more versatile than those funny kids bikes with the front wheels missing which attach on.

We used ours all the time and took it to Center Parcs at Longleat and it worked great (although those hills were a killer!)
