Can I tow a child using training wheels? no, these must either be removed prior to towing OR many child bikes you can slightly loosen the axle nuts and spin the training wheels straight upwards so they can no longer contact the ground then re-tighten the axle nuts. Reason, the towed child bike MUST be able to lean slightly when cornering with adult towing bicycle.
Can I tow with my electric bicycle? Yes in most cases IF your electric bicycle is powered through the rear wheel/hub please check if you rear axle has a wire/cord/cable going in through one side of the axle? If yes you will need to purchase the “Adaptor for Hub Gear Click Box/OR Some rear Electric” if your electric bicycle has a quick release rear wheel you shouldn’t need extra adaptors, If your electric bicycle has axle nuts on the rear wheel (and no cables/wires going in through the axle) you will need to purchase “Adaptor for Towing Bikes with Solid Rear Axles”. Does your adult towing bicycle have internal rear hub gears? If yes, please check if you rear axle has a very small chain/wire/cord/cable going in through one side of the rear axle? If yes you will need to purchase the “Adaptor for Hub Gear Click Box/OR Some rear Electric” sold on this site.
