What is £85 - 20%?

Please show your workings out when you hand in your homework.

£85 x 0.8 = £68. Or am I missing something?

I used to use one of these for my dog, but later replaced it with a Doggyhut bike trailer. Have to say it's much tougher and better quality than these ones supposedly designed for humans! And much easier to use. Google 'em - I just did and found one going for £60 on fleabay.

How much space do these take up when packed away?
I'd love to get one, but it wouldn't be for a daily commute, and she might hate the thing, so need to think about 95% of the time.

Now I have found a solution for my plants to be in a portable greenhouse!

What's the maximum weight and size limit?

Scary when you see people cycling on A roads with their kids in these...

I agree my son has one of these for his kiddies but rarely uses it on roads due to drivers whizzing past, uses it mainly on a bike track nearby that goes on for miles into the countryside

Would be handy to bring materials & tools around!

Keep your eyes shut as you drive past!

I wouldn't carry anything heavier than a two-year-old in one of these. They're just not built for it - the floor is fabric, for one thing, held to the frame with a zip. And they might be foldable, in theory, but once the wheels are on they're very bulky even when folded up.

It would be easy enough to reinforce the fabric & make a few adjustments & it would be fine.

Also available in novelty coffin design.

Two much health & safety concerns nowadays .

Banned

Tempting

I have to deal with cyclist RTAs and I would never put my child into one of these!

Who cares if you wouldn't use these for your children, who cares that you see people using these on roads (perhaps they merely crossed the road to pick up a cycle track). We don't all live in the city and actually might live in the countryside where we can use these safely, really is tiresome reading all the H&S police on here and their mealiness comments, get a life and jog on! Great price OP and I bought one because of your post

This.

The parents usually care!

I use this one, can fold the towing arm underneath and lock in position. The unit collapses and wheels come off, so gets reasonably compact. I am a paramedic and prefer this to a rear child seat, if you fall off your bike the trailer is likely to stay up, or at least the child is in a (weak) cage. With a seat the child falls a long way with a sudden stop, and the high up weight destabilises the bike. I do avoid road use, obviously a car will always beat a cyclist or trailer in a smash!

Oh Halfords, I thought you meant dogs. Same applies though.

I use Weeride seat (others available) for my 4 year old (22 kg). Been using it for 2 years now. I can see him, talk to him. Would never use trailer for anything rather carying bags!

Good price

These are so unsafe and should be banned.
Children should not be exposed to the dangers
inherent in these devices

Lethal items. kids head just at the right height of a car bumper.

Well, I saw a bucket load of them on the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire today and I can confidently state that not one person using them was involved in an RTA or killed by a stampeding rhinoceros.

Banning them? Are you guys for real? OK well, if you are let's get serious here. So if we're banning them, I would suggest that we also completely ban smoking and drinking as they kill loads of people. In fact, car accidents kill many people each year, even when they manage to miss the bike trailer. So best ban cars too.

Actually, now that we've banned cars, we don't need to ban bike trailers so can go back to using them on the many car-free routes that exist in the UK. Come to think of it, there's now lots more of them :-)

Honestly.

don't Dall off your bike. place your child's head is a lot higher so a car hits it is less likely to hit their head

FFS people use this for dogs, are they aware dogs have legs - if your dog doesn't have legs it's a stump and if it's a stump take it for drag to the cemetery

We have nice family bike rides at an age our youngest cannot ride a bike thanks to this, I put the trailer in the car, bikes on roof, then we enjoy our hobby along a nice coastal cycle path (not along a road). It is obvious they are not an ideal road transport for youngsters, but nor is Lycra and a road bike along a road full of blind bends for an adult, it is a tool to help people get outdoors and enjoy cycling, used by most parents on specific cycle routes away from the road.

I see that the "extra 20% off" ends today. If I reserve for collection today, do I pay at the time of reservation or when I collect? And will the extra 20% still apply if I collect tomorrow? Cheers

Don't crash into cyclists and their child's trailer, simple!
