Children should be at least 1 year old, and it has a maximum weight capacity of 40 pounds. This bike seat is designed for casual riding on smooth, flat, paved and dry surfaces free of sand, gravel or dirt. The WeeRide child seat offers an innovative riding position so the child is visible at all times and can be heard and attended to more easily. The child is provided with a more interesting view, and the weight distribution actually works to enhance the bicycle's stability. All in all, it offers enhanced safety and a more comfortable, enjoyable ride for the child.

Adams Trailer Bikes

The price is $299.00

Adams Trailer Bike

Adams were the first trailer bikes imported into Australia. They are a high quality unit designed to bring many hours of enjoyment for both you and your child. You will be able to go adventuring with your child without the fear of going too far and exhaustion setting in. They fold for convenient transport and storage, and are quick and easy to attach.


Trail A Bike 7speed Trailer Bike

The price is $379.00

Trailer Bike 7 Speed

With this tandem attachment, you can start going for long rides with the kids. Because the child is now assisting, not the main drive force, when they inevitably become tired they can have a quick rest, then get back to it. This helps their confidence and riding skills. This unit folds in half for storage or transport, has 7 gears and is made of aluminium for light-weight.


Giant Halfwheeler Trailer Bike

The price is $449.00

Giant Half-wheeler Trailer Bike

The Giant Halfwheeler is like a tandem for children. It is as much fun for us adults as it is for the children. The trailer attaches on to the seat pillar and swivels from that point. The advantages over their own bicycle at a young age are many: You are no longer limited to going "around the block" before exhaustion or boredom sets in, you can assist them to learn balance, they learn to lean into a corner while negotiating it, and they will become a stronger rider if they "put in " when climbing hills. The trailer bike is quick and easy to attach, and folds for easy storage.


Pacific Alloy trailer

Price is $379.00

Pacific Alloy trailer

Taking your kids for a bike ride doesn't have to be something that has to wait until they are 10 years old. If you have young kids, why not bundle them into this fantastic trailer and let them experience the thrill and excitement of getting out and about. Even if they don't fully appreciate it at the time you certainly will as you introduce them to a range of sights and experiences unavailable without a bicycle. This trailer will safely accommodate one or 2 children with a soft hammock style seating and 5 point safety harnesses and has a storage area behind the seats for extra clothing, food, drink and all those other things that seem to be essential when you've got little kids.

The trailer has an alloy frame and alloy quick release 20 x 1.75" rear wheels so its weight isn't too much of a burden. The Pacific trailer is easily mounted via a hitch which attaches to the left hand chainstay on the bike for towing and can easily convert to a Jogger with 12" front wheel if you don't mind a run every now and then.

When fully enclosed the interior is completely protected from the elements, but there is also the options of a zippered insect screen or open air riding too. The trailer hitch folds away under the base and the front wheel and push handle are quickly extended for Jogger usage. When in jogger mode the push handle incorporates a safety parking brake.

The maximum recommended carrying capacity is 45 Kg.


Weehoo Trailer Bike

Price $499.00

Weehoo Trailer Bike

 

There are a huge number of advantages to be had using a trailer bike. It is an incredibly enjoyable way to improve your childs riding skills. Because they are attached to your bike, they learn to lean into a corner, unlike the situation with training wheels on their own bike, where they tend to lean against the training wheels as they turn. Because they do not have to be concerned about getting tired, your child can push hard climbing hills, etc, so they will develop strong legs at a faster rate than on their own bike generally. Also because you can go for a longer distances (more than around the block a few times) without the concern of running out of energy, you can go on interesting excursions, so they will be even more enthusiastic about riding (and life). A trailer bike really is a lot of fun to use, when my daughters were young there was a lot of fun to be had on one of these. They had a blast! It's a great way to stay in control and still let your child get used to pedalling and pushing harder up hill etc.


The Weehoo story...

On vacation in Colorado, two parents longed to explore the Vail bike paths. With 5-year old twins, the idea wasn't looking hopeful. The duration that the twins tolerated a buggy trailer was very short. The wife wasn't comfortable riding the long fast decents with a trailer bike. They resigned to walking around town instead. Literally, that night, in a dream, the Wehoo founder did experience what it would be like to explore the valley with his family - by bicycle trailer.

Before his feet hit the floor the following morning, he grabbed the hotel notepad and sketched the Weehoo iGo bicycle trailer exactly as it is today. Once back home in Denver, welders and benders replaced the cars in the garage. Months later, they were riding with their twins enjoying all that Colorado had to offer - by bike!

The twins couldn't get enough of the Weehoo. Rides turned into 3-hour effortless adventures. No meltdowns, no fussing. The children loved the Weehoo no matter how long the rides grew. Conversation flowed between parent and child. The twins engaged the open air, breeze, sights and sounds that nature had to offer. The destination became secondary to the adventure of riding there. It was a success. And the children pedalled. So much so that riding with the children was as effortless as riding alone.

From that point, the Weehoo team didn't let anything keep them from getting the Weehoo to parents who wanted one. Today, the Weehoo trailer is available in nearly all of the top 100 bicycle retailers in the USA and Canada and in several countries around the world, including at Ivanhoe Cycles in Melbourne, Australia.

Watch this if you still need convincing.
