Tell me where to buy a tag along bike in Melbourne?!

Postby megiemoppit » Mon Sep 13, 2010 10:24 pm

I am looking for a tag along bike for my 4yo. I really don't want to spend a lot. It is for our holiday house that we spend time on bike trails. I am in the North/West burbs of Melb.
Many thanks

There was a display at Bike Expo 2010 that had various family friendly bikes and accessories, including a couple of tag-along bikes.

Have not any experience with them, but the hitch system they use looks better than the hitches on trailers used on Rottnesst Island during the '90's.

They are based in Melb too. http://www.austrasports.com.au

I had a Pacific Tagalong bike trailer, it had a quick release hitch and folded for easy transport. Did the job OK. I sold it on flea-bay, so that's one place to look.

If you do a search fpr Pacific Bile Trailer you will come up with a long list of bike shops that sell them. Just watch your speed down steep hills...

Bought mine on fleabay too. Watched loads and loads of Pacifics come and go, but eventually got an Adams trail-a-bike, for $150!
