Trail-Gator Tow Bar - The Smart Way to Cycle with Childre
|Buy:||Please Contact Us|
The Trail-Gator Bicycle Tow Bar converts an ordinary child's bike into a safe, towable trailer bike, whenever desired. To ride attached, simply unclip the tow bar from the stored position on the adult bike, extend it, and connect it to the receiver, which is mounted on the child's bike. It takes less than a minute and no tools are required.
When the child's bike is connected, the front wheel is lifted off the ground and a stabilizing bar prevents the handlebars from turning, leaving the adult in control of steering. Children can choose to coast or pedal while they are being towed, making the ride much easier for them.
We have sold hundreds of these in the last ten years and they have allowed great versatility for people wanting to get places with children without resorting to motor vehicle use.
They also allow children to learn road skills without the risk of erratic behaviour, as they cannot steer, they can only pedal or coast.
They can also participate by indicating, ringing their bell, etc.

Extra Receiver Kit: This kit sets up an additional child's bike for use with the tow bar. An adult riding with more that one child can alternate towing between child bikes, giving all children a chance to be towed. The kit contains all hardware that is mounted on the child bicycle. This kit is optional and only needed when wanting to tow additional child bicycles.
Extra Seat Post Kit: This kit allows the Trail-Gator Bicycle Tow Bar to be used with more than one adult bike. Adult riders can take turns towing a single child's bike, giving both adults a chance to join in on the fun. The kit includes all hardware that is mounted to the adult bike. A quick release is also included in this kit. This kit is optional and is only needed when transferring the tow bar from one adult bike to another adult bike.
These can be assembled with simple hand tools, but if you are unsure of your mechanical abilities, please check with someone with the appropriate skill or order one from your cycle shop.
They will only work safely with 16 − 20" wheeled child's cycles
The weight of the rear rider should not exceed 50% of the weight of the front rider, otherwise it can become difficult to maintain control.
