I know I'm being pedantic but why hasn't that child in the video got any head protection on?

£79.99 in halfords so a bargain

We have one of these, it is fantastic!

Excellent piece of kit. I bought a rear view mirror that velcros onto my handle bar so I can keep an eye on the liitle un

Another recomendation from me.
We have been riding so much more since buying one of these.
We got ours from Decathlon fo £50 just in case our son didn't like it, then we could return it.

Another recommendation from me. We bought one of these and then sold on EBay when my kids were too big for it. There is a booming second hand market in these, so there's a good chance you'll get most of your money back when you're finished with it.

Possibly because the benefits of cycle helmets are extremely marginal at best. I wear one but I do not fret if others don't, and never has the lack of a helmet been proved in court to have contributed to injuries. It is also reckoned that helmets can cause accidents by making cyclists feel less vulnerable or motorists think they are less vulnerable.

Cheers OP. Just ordered.

Not sure I'd agree with that one, a cycle helmets saved me in a few scrapes which would have been a lot worse without one:thumbsup:

Great piece of kit at a great price.

W.r.t. helmets - this is not the place to discuss probably the most contentious issue in cycling.

It's easy to think that, but how can you be sure? I only have the scientific studies to go on. Do some research on the net and draw your conclusions from that.

One thing of which I am sure: making helmets compulsory would be a bad idea as any reduction in injuries would be far outweighed by the disadvantages of the reduced amount of cycling resulting from people not bothering because of the hassle of needing a helmet.

Totally agree that they shouldn't be compulsory, I believe in people making their own decisions and taking resposibility for themselves, but hitting your head with a helmet on is almost certainly going to cause less damage than without one.
Isn't that just common sense:?

It is common sense, but doesn't tell the complete story: you may be more likely to hit your head when wearing a helmet than when you're not.

Thanks to the OP - been looking at getting one of these as our 5 year old is now cycling without assistance but this will hopefully attach nicely to the 3 year olds bike so we head out cycling as a family.

Heat and Rep added.

Be gentle - first ever post.....

Been looking for a few days to buy these for my two girls age 3 & 4..

Not sure if it's the same company - but really good deal on ebay that includes flip up training wheels - item number 200347760082 - £54.98 in total - not found the training wheels for under £15 (including delivery) anywhere ...

Just ordered two - just got to find myself a new bike now !!!

Also keep an eye on Lidl when they do cycling accessories, i got one from there last year, which was virtually identical to this.
Think it was about £27-£29, but like i said you have to wait for all the cycling specials to come along and even then they aren't guaranteed to have one.
Just sold mine for £15
Great item available now
Heat ADDED

That looks completely unsafe to me. Have you seen then angle the child needs to sit at on their bike in the u-tube video? A really bad bit of design in my opinion.

Surely a cheap childs bike might break under the extra stress being placed on the frame?

My wife was looking at various bikes to take the little ones out on - she is a busy childminder.

I showed her all these type of contraptions but typically she decided to go for the most expensive bike in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is worse - is it looks like the kid has a bike helmet on rack behind him. And the adult doesn't have one on either!

Can any one help please? I've just got a Trail-gator & I have to say love it. But the quick release to detach my son is cumbersome (at best), I rub the skin off my knuckles trying to screw / unscrew it, though I will admit to being technically hopeless. There didn't seem to be anything about how to do this in the instructions. Any advice would be fantastic.
