  • Trail Gator

    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 love being in tow with an adult and can choose to either 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's easy to store and transport when not in use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product but difficult to install Once installed properly, it has proven to be very good. However it proved to be tricky to install. The main thing to be careful of is ensuring that the arm clears the height of the rear wheel. Thus can mean putting the seat higher than you wish. In the case of the bike we used, which had a suspension saddle, we had to raise the seat too high. In the end we switched the seat for a different one. Also it was difficult to install with the instructions not being very clear. After several hours of fiddling and road testing we finally got it working and it's been great for the two weeks or so we've used it for so far. 26 October 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great gaget Does exactly what's it's meant to. Now cycle miles towing our youngest and when our eldest tires, we just click her bike on her trail gator and then she is being towed as well. Comes with clips so the trail gator is always attached to adult bike for use as and when required. The only downfall is that people often stare or comment as they do look pretty unique especially when two go past! 25 October 2016
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Gutted I arrived at the store hoping to collect. After a short wait, the item was located and delivered to the till. I was really disappointed. It was obviously a returned item. The packaging was poor, and it was difficult to be sure all the parts were present. The product looked 'used'; not just returned as unfit. I decided to pass, and declined the purchase. A real bum sale for Halfords: why hold obviously damaged stock? Never got to actually try the product. But it has put me off Halfords. 02 October 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Family biking Great purchase to allow our family of four to go biking without having to leave the three 1/2 year old at home. Great price great item. Very ahappy 18 September 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Easy to set up in around 30 minutes and once done, bike can be connected/disconnected in seconds. Nice and stable for both the bike towing and the bike being towed. 17 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best things I've ever bought As above, this is a great product. Yes you have to spend some time at the start tightening the bracket on the child's bike but once this work is done the enjoyment and satisfaction are endless. This means my daughter, who had been using this product since she was three, can have the independence to ride alone but can be attached to my bike when she is tired or for longer distances. Although some parts feel of slightly poor quality, I've used this product for over a year and it is still working as well as day one. You also get loads of amazed looks from people as you pass. I can't praise this product highly enough. It is brilliant. 03 August 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by 4 year old daughter loves using this. Daughter (nearly 4 years now) rides unassisted but 1 mile is about her limit so short family rides were not possible. This device allows her to have a tow (e.g. uphill) and also ride solo for stretches when she want's to. We managed about 8 miles on tow on the first outing before she began to tire - she loves it. I was worried about it not holding her upright, or wobbling, or her leaning back uncomfortably, but the bike was stable, her position was fine and she was comfortable. You do have to torque the headset bracket up a lot on the childs bike though which may cause damage but felt sacrifice was worth it and didn't find a better option. There were no instructions in the box (I was probably just unfortunate) but I found the official PDF manual online which was ok. The telescopic bar itself is robust (quite heavy) but some of the accompanying components are poor, e.g. one quick release handle just bent as the metal is so soft so I have had to be careful with it. Another quick release has rusted after one day of rain. Spent more on a low range torque wrench (as required for installation) than on the product itself. In the end I couldn't seem to torque the headset bracket up to the required value as the bracket just kept bending and I feared squishing the alloy headset of the childs bike. For the price of a couple of a couple of days trailer hire, we can use this over and over - overall we are pleased we bought it for its versatility. 21 July 2016
