Default Whats the name of the little seat that trails behind a bike for kiddos?

howdy-

I don't even know what to search for.

What do you call one of those little contraptions that allows you to stick your kiddo in and pull them around with your bike?

Thanks-

Tag-along. Trail-a-bike. We had one for a little while. Problem is they are kind of big for small kids. By the time they can actually pedal the thing. They can ride a 16" wheel bike and keep up pretty well. My kids were off training wheel bikes before age 4 (12" wheels) Now they are both on 16"wheels. The tag-a-longs are 20" wheels.

The trailers are made by Burley. The one wheeled bike with pedals were originally made by Trailabike but there are lots of manufacturers now.

Or do you meen a Chariot Trailer? or Child Carrier? Kids need to be age 1 to tow them behind a bike.

Hey Drew...check "bike trailer" on CL. That's where you'll find most of them.

bike trailer was the winner. thanks guys. Any opinion on this setup? I am thinking of an old school seat for over the rear tire or on the handle bars. My boy is 11 months.

You dudes rock, thanks!

Get the trailer. Much safer than the seat over the wheel. Plus the kid/s can see more than just your sweaty back. Used trailers are pretty cheap. We got on for free Coworker just wanted it out of her garage.

Plus when your kids outgrow them they can be used for other things :-D (or can be sold to people like me to do other things with them!) 5 pair skis, 4 pair boots, 1 cooler with hamburgers!

We've done them all: bike trailer, tag-along, and the extra seat over the rear tire. Everything but the tag-along works well for a kid < 4. The bike trailers are nice because usually they fit 2 kids + some gear, but they can be spendy. The over-the-seat chair is nice because it is easy and simple, but it does make the bike more susceptible to rear tire blow outs with all the extra weight.

Secondary problem is it's kinda spooky when you look back and the kid's head is laying on the handlebars and they are asleep!
