  • 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 from Excellent Product to Encourage Your Child to Cycle I bought this so that my 4 year old son could accompany me on cycle rides. He has absolutely no interest in cycling yet despite most of his friends having achieved this essential skill. I only recently started cycling and love it so it was really a selfish way for me to keep cycling instead of having to chase after his scooter. Turns out he loves it (even though he's just sitting on his bike while I do the donkey work). It's a little bit tricky to install son I had to resort to You Tube, but once it's set up it doesn't take long to attach your child's bike to yours. My only disappointment is not with the Trail Gator but for the fact that the shop price is £69.99 compared to the web price of £49.99. If you don't ask at the counter for the web price they'll charge you £20 more (Halfords, your bad), hence the lower score.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating installation The product finally works as it should however the time spent on its installation, re-installation and re-re-installation is enormous for someone who is used to look after 10 bikes in the family fleet (with only very rare specialist support in the bike shop). The tools needed are not those you would normally carry around as a cyclist, twice I had to come from a trip with the ´thing´ disconnected. I have not tighten the screws on the child ´s side enough and it became even dangerous. My fault, but I kind of blame the design too. The screws used for the saddle tube attachment are long and my thighs are not slim so I cannot avoid the occasional contact with them. If I had another choice on the market I would have returned it.....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product This is a great product. Agree with other comments that it takes a little bit of setting up, but once set up it is easy and no quick go reattach. It's robust and my daughter loves it. I do feel it's slightly over priced but there's not much else about to challenge it in quality and price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trail gator Do not be fooled, this is the hardest thing I've ever had to assemble. I thought people were exaggerating, no, they were not. I bought two, it took myself and partner 4 hours to attach both to the bikes. (I love diy things, building Ikea furniture is fun for me, this way torture!) All said and done, they are a fab extra for our new found love of cycling. The great thing is they can be unattached and attached in a few minutes (once the initial attachment is made). I would recommend this product but leave plenty time and have a few plasters handy for the build! Good luck

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.

Please note that if you're returning your old unit to our National Returns Centre then this will be at your own expense.
