I have a very lightly used Chariot Cougar double child carrier for sale. Despite big plans, we were too tired with kids 3 and 4 to really use it :eek: and now they've outgrown the whole thing. I'd say between pulling it while snowshoeing and using it as a bike trailer we have 10-12 uses at most, so it's pretty much like new.

The Chariot is a really cool carrier system - it has a leaf spring suspension that can be adjusted for firmness as the kids gain weight, which makes both the ride for the kids nice as well as keeping it from jarring the bike pulling it over bouncy terrain if you like to bike on non-paved trails.

The base use is as a bike trailer (like a Burley) - I have the full conversion to a double jogging stroller as well as the cross country ski conversion, which simply replaces the tires with skis along with a harness. This is so nice if you like the snowshoe or XC ski as the little ones will usually fall asleep and you can get a couple of hours of peace.

I will post pics tomorrow. In the meantime, here are links to each component. $500 for the entire setup - the carrier alone with no attachment retails for $600. I won't split up any of the components unless there is individual demand for each of them.
