    We were considering the Trailgator for a long time. Our youngest son just learned to ride a two-wheeler so we decided now was the time. It took about an hour to assemble and configure the two bikes. After a quick ride by myself, our son jumped on and we were off. When everything is connected properly, it's a smooth ride. We even took a short, bumpy dirt trail and the rig stayed tight. Very simple to convert to individual riders. The Trailgator setup turned some heads on the local hike/bike trail. There were a few parents wishing their young ones could keep up an adult pace with training wheels! This is a very sturdy piece, well made and will handle what it's meant to do. The only draw back I could find is that it is heavy. To load the adult bike onto or off of a bike rack, it might be easiest to completely remove the Trailgator from the adult bike. It is simple to do and no tools are needed.

    This is a very worth-while product even for the not-so-professional cyclist family. Meijer had the lowest price I could find with a ready supply.

    A definite "would buy it again!"

    Disappointed- looked used & too big

    I was immediately disappointed when I opened the torn box to discover some of the parts looked used! It was not too hard to put it together at first, but I soon discovered it wouldn't fit on my 3 year old's bike. Bummer! Didn't even get to try it out on the road.

    Good product only problem is my daughter brakes on her bike which makes it difficult to pedal. She was a little nervous the first few rides but now no problem. Highly recommend.

    Pros

    • Can connect mid-ride
    • Fits many bikes

    Cons

    • 70 lb wt limit for kids

    Best Uses

    • Street Riding

    Comments about Trailgator Bike Tandem Bar:

    We bought 2 and are pleased. The Trailgators let our family go on longer rides. Without them, the kids have to pedal too fast to keep up on their small 1-speed bikes and get tired. When hooked up to the adult bike, they get to pedal (they really do help going uphill!) but we can go farther and faster. The system is well thought out, is flexible enough to install on lots of different kids bikes, and has clear instructions. It does take an hour or more to install the first time, but once the attachments to the kids and adult bikes are installed, the connector bar can be unhooked from the kids bike and stowed on the adult bike, or removed completely from both bikes, in about a minute. My only complaint is it would have been nice to know about the 70 pound weight limit beforehand. Both our kids are getting close to the limit, but the joined bikes are still pretty stable.

      Was a little hard to install and it took my 3 year old a little while to get on it for a ride. But now that he's used to it he loves riding on the "bike train"!

      Comments about Trailgator Bike Tandem Bar:

      We started using the Trailgator a couple of months ago for our 6 year old who's still trying to master a two-wheeler. We both LOVE it. He has a ball, pedaling along at the same pace as me. I love the convenience of having him close by. We've gotten lots of smiles and thumbs-up as we've pedaled around town. It seems to be sturdy and holds his bike in place very well. The set up was tricky; it took my husband close to two hours, and he's relatively handy.

          Comments about Trailgator Bike Tandem Bar:

          I purchased this tandem bike bar for me and my 6 year old daughter who has not yet learned how to ride without training wheels. It is very secure and allows my daughter to ride further distances with me confidently. Just make sure that the adult seat is secured tightly or the bike bar will cause the adult rider's seat to rotate as the child leans. We fixed this problem easily by making my seat tighter. Now it works beautifully and we are enjoying our time riding together. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who would like the option of riding together to build confidence in your child or simply travel further distances than you could with just training wheels.

            My daughter LOVES this and so do I! She doesn't really know that she is not really riding, so she pedals along just as fast as she can behind me! She begs me to go for bike rides! We love this! My only complaint is that it has come loose twice which makes my daughter start to lean to the side. I don't know what is making it loose. We just tighten it up and back out we go!
