    The Trail Gator lets your child experience riding a bike with an adult in safety. The Trail Gator 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. When the child's bike is connected to the Trail Gator, 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.

  • Trail Gator Towbar Trailer Black is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed I am a professional bike mechanic and I bought two of these for my hire fleet. I chose as I thought it would be a clever alternative to a Tag-a-long. However... there are three joints in the unit so there is a certain amount of flex in the system which means the following child will always leant to one side of the other. Also the bracket that attached to the front of the child bike will have a tendency to slip which means the bike will lean further over. The only way to make sure this does not happen is to tighten the bracket to such a point it will permanently damage the child bike. This will also mean distortion of the bracket which now means it is very difficult (but not impossible) to remove and fit on an alternative bike. Another small fault is the knurled nut on the quick release digs in to the paint, meaning it is difficult to remove, although this is easily remedied by fitting a washer. I also think some of the other supplied parts are too flimsy and should be treated with utmost care. One other small point is one of the quick release levers snapped on closing. Overall I can't say I'm impressed with this product and I wish I had bought some Weeride Tag-a-longs.
