Have you ever been on a bicycle ride with around say 4 to 8 year old and your child gets tired and doesn’t want to cycle anymore?, they want to walk and you end up pushing their bike and yours ! and how do you now hold the child’s hand to cross the road ?! how do even get home in a reasonable time ?
Or been cycling with your child and you come to a busy area and you are worried about the safety of your child because there cycling skills and awareness are still developing? Well we have an answer for this, FollowMe Tandem allows you and your child to cycle separately on your own bicycles, the beauty is you can connect up and tow your child quickly and easily whenever required, if they are tired or you are concerned for their safety. When connected the adult towing is in total control, all steering, balance and braking, allowing your child to rest safely (Or peddle if they wish to join in). There are some other devices on the market that achieve the same thing, the main and most popular one is the Trail Gator Bicycle Tow Bar, also Tag Along Trailer Bikes can be good but do not allow riding separate on your own bikes as well as towing. From personal experience with all these devices we recommend the FollowMe well and above the Trail Gator Bicycle Tow Bar and other devices on the market. The FollowMe is more expensive but it is well worth the extra dollars. We of course can be perceived as bias so please we believe that with any reasonable amount of internet research of reviews and other documents you also will come the same conclusion, cycle with the family will never be the same again.
Here is some of the Highlights of the FollowMe Tandem :-
Low Centre of Gravity Connection point to the Adult towing bike
Well-engineered and designed in Switzerland
Quick Connection and disconnection of the 2 bikes when out on a cycle with your child
Device comes with you when not towing, always ready, “Dad I,m tired !”
RIDE SEPARATE ! Learn Solo Riding Skills
OR CONNECT THEM UP "MUM!! I,m tired " OR "Bit of traffic here"
After initial installation, you can quickly connect and tow your child's bicycle in no time and without tools in a few short moves.
Safe and stable, the two-point support at hub level ensures safety, ride comfort, and stability because there is no leverage as is the case with Trail Gator and other devices that attach to the seat post of the adult towing bike. This is by far the best child bike towing device in the market today.
