TRAIL GATOR

With the Trail Gator lets your child experience riding a bike with an adult in safety. Once assembled no tools are required to fit or remove and you have full steering and speed control. Children revel in being in tow with an adult and can choose to pedal or coast along. With a high strength steel frame the trail gator is extremely robust and will stabilise your child's handlebars for improved balance. A telescopic folding system means that it is easy to store and transport when not in use.

Ive been looking for one of these for my 5 year old, He can ride unaided but wanted one for longer trips. Heat added, bargain

I bought this from tesco same price and doubled up my points.

Not so much of a deal when you can get it delivered for £42 from eBay.

no bike? just the tow bar?

I haven't check the ebay one, but this is the latest model with a few revisions including a more sturdy handlebar stabiliser, steel seatpost attachment and quick release fittings at both ends. And you can pick it up tonight for the weekend if you want to.

Really?

That looks like the most scariest thing I have seen in a long time!

I had one which got about 5 uses before failing big time. See also … I had one which got about 5 uses before failing big time. See also http://triangulate-a-gator.blogspot.co.uk/2009/12/problem-and-how-to-stop-it-happening.html?m=1



I had exactly the same problem - including the screaming child. My solution was to tighten the clamp so tight that it dented the headtube massively. In fact when fitting a clamp to a second bike, I snapped a clamp. I would rather cause cosmetic damage to the bike than have my kid scraping their face along the ground when being towed.

dont even think about it JUST GET ONE.... best thing for longer and more enjoyable rides, I put a goPro on my seat post and film my little boys face when we go down big hills, it's really funny!!

As safe as a Chinese made condom used in a brothel in Liberia.

Oh dear looks awful.

We had one for my son, he loved it, and we never had a problem. Heat

Aye. agree. how to make a dangerous activity even more risky.

Awesome! Thanks OP, reserved for collection tomorrow.

If you do get one, please ensure that you do not attach to a MTB with rear suspension as this will damage it. Also from personal experience these dramatically increase wear on your rear cassette and chain.
