Found 8th Mar 2015
Saw a daily deal on amazon for a bike trailer and alway fancied one of these. Had a look around and found this for £80, go it and was well impressed for the value for money.

Fits 1 large or 2 small babies, 2 seats with 5 point safety harnesses, Large PVC screen window for protection and easy viewing.

Choice of four cool colours, sure the kids will want different ones though!

Cheaper and delivered than the one sold by Halfords (& is only a trailer) as shown / listed here on hotukdeals.

This is 2 in 1 a stroller also can be used like a pram, I don't think the one yesterday had a handle was just a trailer for bike heat

I really hope people don't drive on the roads with these things and their children in them. Can somone explain when you would use one and what purpose it serves?

We've got one....different brand but just wanted to answer your question! We've used it lots and the children have had many fun days out on it. We do stick to cycle paths though. My husband has also used it to take children to nursery. Well worth the money if you want your children to enjoy the outdoors from a you gage!

* Young age

cycle paths around lakes/forests.....
put the kids in.....

When you would use one will be whenever you feel like it, I'm sure it's going to be wind proof/waterproof & where? It doesn't necessarily mean on roads, people could park up & take their kids along the prom in it with a picnic.
My mum had one of these for me & my brother when we were younger & that's what we used to do, they're absolutely fantastic!

Does require a bit of effort when pedalling so excercise aswell as fun for the kids

Why would you put your children at such unnecessary risk taking them on the road in one of these contraptions?! If an adult chooses to ride on the road on a bicycle, that is their choice but to put your kids in such danger is irresponsible in my opinion. And yes, regardless of how safe the bike rider may be, it only takes one careless driver and your kids could quite easily be seriously injured. I am not saying that cars are safe either but at least they have a lot more protection than this could ever offer in the event of a collision.

Walk, catch a bus or take them in a car to nursery. If a car hit this trailer, how could you live with youself.

May be more comfortable and fun for your child if you just tied them into a sack and dragged it behind your bike.

There is an extensive cycle track network and doubles as a jogger so you don't have to use on a highway choice is up to the rider, and yes I agree is not perfect tool for the highway.

Because these things are so low to the ground the little red flag is supposed to attract other road users attention, Would a Juggernaut, bus or any other large vehicle see it I don't know.It's the lottery game you'd play with your kids life. Off road maybe but I'll pass on this one.

Take them in a car to nursery? That's the problem with people who think like you, they make the roads more dangerous because they are too scared of all the other drivers, but then you become one of "those" other drivers and make things worse for everyone else. Nothing wrong with using one of these on the road, probably not sensible to take one on a dual carriageway or fast a road, but in a village / quiet urban environment, no reason why you shouldn't.

For those that say these are difficult to see, they must be pretty appalling drivers. Surely those same people can see the road markings on roads, so how would you not be able to see these?

If you take your child in one of these on the road, the child should be … If you take your child in one of these on the road, the child should be taken off you.Not only could the child be crushed by vehicles, the toxic fumes from exhausts will probably give them cancer.A responsible parent drives a large 4x4, which is safe, and with climate control and air re circulation, you can guarantee the air quality.



I agree with the first statement, but the last line? Is that meant to be a joke otherwise your a bit of a nervous nelly if you think you need a 4x4 with climate control for a childs safety.

As soon as I saw this post I knew the health and safety Stasi would be out in force. My kids are out in the garden playing with the chainsaw I purchased last week (Just kidding before anyone sets Social Services on me). Good price OP and heat added.

Hope you have all the ppe and for the youtube 'oops' vid's a camera!

there are a million other applications of this than the 'busy road' which seems to be referring to by the dramatic nazi poster.
get out into the woods, cycle paths, take on holiday and use at centre parcs.. it also depends where you live.. you must live on the north circular in wembley just by ikea, which is why you are thinking the way you are thinking.. lol

Clearly you miss the point. Bikes shouldn't be on the path either, so if you are riding on the sidewalk with one of these, you are dangerous and irresponsible. How else would you get to 'nursery' otherwise? If you are walking, you don't really have much choice where you walk and cars don't tend to drive on pavements. Where as strapping your kids into an alumnium cage and riding on the road is a selfish choice. And yes, some people don't drive and would live too far from where they going to walk, so public transport is the answer. The basic point is, as you clearly don't understand. Is that you are putting your children at unnecessary risk if you go on the road in one of these. A bang in a car might shake your kids but the same collision with children in this would potentially kill them. Get it?

I had one of these but the halfords version, used it to take collect my children from school, just over 2 mile round trip, paid for itself in the first few months with fuel saving and wear and tear on car, also helped keep me healthier, no matter what the weather my kids went by trailer, they also enjoyed it and though it was fun, unfourtunatly they grew up to quick and are now in there teens, sold the trailer bike on a car boot for £20 as it was well used and abused after several years use. Plenty of parents at the childrens school always commented hiw they were going yo get one but never did, most people these days use there cars like mobility scooters, even if the going 500 yards to the corner shop they still go by car, no wonder we have a nation of unhealthy adults.

Same reply to you too. I wasn't suggesting taking kids in a car if you live 100 metres down the road, thats why I also said walk or catch a bus (depending on your circumstance/distance etc). You chose to ignore that statement and go off at an irrelevant tangent.

Appalling drivers? Thats the problem. They are appalling drivers on the roads and it doesn't matter how safe you are on a bike, there are idiots on the road that will not see you and your kids in this thing. Like I said above, the exact same collision with 2 cars and then one with a car and this thing would have completely different outcomes. Why would anyone choose to take that calculated risk with their childrens lives? You people need to wake up to the real world and what is going on around you.

Attach it with motorbike

This place is incredible. Firstly, it's a great deal!

Secondly, if people choose to take their kids on the road in one that is their decision to make - I'd rather be in the company of someone who used one of these on the road than someone who judged them for doing so.

I think in general car users should have more respect for bike riders and horse riders. I think people mostly use these on cycle tracks. I have seen loads in the Dalby forest. Shame the uk does not have more cycle tracks/cycle lanes. Sadly the cycle lanes they do have near me often have cars parked up here and there along them !! As for not seeing one of these. If you cannot see one of these you really should not be driving at all because if you cannot see this you would not see a child or animal stepping out in front of your car !!! I think its a great thing used safely and that's for each parent to assess the risks for themselves. Just walking out the door every morning can be risky but we would never go anywhere if we truly contemplated every eventuality.

It's not me missing the point it's you! Yes my husband takes my child to nursery and yes he cycles on the path-the path also has a white bike painted on it making it a cycle path!

Ha ha - luckily we live next to canal (more canals than Venice here in Brum etc.).

But I agree, I'm shocked when I see people using these on the road - too many idiot drivers around to put your kids at risk.

Or go one step further! Why leave the house!
I suggest staying in doors and preferably in a bunker! Why take the risk of leaving the house? Yes, you may be at risk of a house fire or gas explosion etc. etc. but outside is SO much more dangerous as DrDropalog suggests.
And btw - before you pedants get back at me... yes I do feed my kids healthily and puree all their food to avoid choking.
Also, FYI don't use bubble wrap to keep your kids safe, as each pocket contains a minute almost unreadable collection of harmful gas and although it would take over 2 millions pockets to burst simultaneously, I just wouldn't take the risk! Especially if you're in a bunker with little ventilation!
Do not get this bike trailer and preferable throw away your bikes (and crockery for that matter!)
Right... back to my lead lined bunker! I knew I shouldn't have come out to check HUKD!!

Lead bunker, surly the rick of lead poisoning it just as ricky as riding on the A74 west bound!

If everyone drove to the highway code there would be no accidents.

I saw a lot of these in France a few years ago, including one with a dog in. I'm sure our elderly dog would appreciate a ride to his favourite walking spots.

So 200 metres then I'd take the car? Would that be OK? You're probably the same sort of person that thinks you should cover your children in hi viz everywhere they go so that blind motorists can see them. I'm sure it's all done with the best of intentions but it all woefully misses the point.

I would suggest it is you that needs to wake up and realise what is going on around you and do something useful like campaign for safer streets and enforced speed limits, rather than just accept the status quo and post nonsense about how it is irresponsible to cycle on the road because of all the bad drivers out there.

Can theses be attached to a car tow bar? X)

I might get one to use on the cycle paths around my area with my bicycle.

Anyone know if this one is any good and is it worth getting one?

You could attach via the safety strap but would not be road legal. I assume you don't want to drive a vehicle with this attached and only for safe parked up storage.
I bought one and already two of our friends have asked to use and one has bought one themselves.
