Can anyone recommend a good safe non annoying bike trailer for my DDs 2 yrs and 9 months? We have sold our car and will be using the trailer daily so can make a decent investment for the right thing..e.g roll-over hitch and the like.. I did fancy a Chariot Cougar (cute and cool!) but can't seem to find any stockists with availabilty at the mo and nothing much on ebay - we are east midlands (if anyone owns a bike shop!) and need it ASAP really- anyone tried Burleys? Thanks for advice
Burley (?Burleigh) are all well regarded. We have a Chariot Cougar, it is lousy for more than a few small bags, Burley is better (more room for luggage). Chariot Captain (the solid bottom one) is better for daily city use and has more luggage space than the Cougar, too (I think!)
Wike makes good ones, Danish make (?Dolphin) also good, but quite dear.
To be honest, we had a relatively cheap bike trailer and it was fine for us, too; given the cost difference, I don't see anything wrong with using a cheap one for as long as possible, as long as it's waterproof.
Just read that you are in east midands, we bought our burley cub second hand from the bike shop at Whitwell on Rutland water, they also hire them out as well as selling them new so might be a good place to visit - hiring one for a cycle around would soon show you if you could live with it or not too
nozmum - have e-mailed you details... dh has pointed out though, that it is the single chariot we have that is the cougar lol. the double that i'm trying to flog is the chauffeur cts. (we used to have a cavalier as well - can you tell we like chariots lol? i wish they didn't all begin with c - it would make my life a lot easier...) sorry for confusion!
Does anybody have a hard bottomed 2 seater childrens bike trailer that they wish to sell. We have just been on a Centre Parcs Holiday and used a Burley Cub, however, I have also heard Croozer and Trek are great makes. We are based in Hampshire. Many thanks
