Search came up with nothing. Curious if anyone has used one of these and how it worked. Here is one like it on eBay
The guy had 2 of them. I won the other auction. I guess I'll have a review in a week or so.
There was a similar product called a tailgator or trailgator or somehting like that that didn't require the front wheel removal, I read up on it and it wasn't very stable from what I recall.

I had a Trailgator and hated it. It was so unstable and just had too much play in it to be safe. Honestly any trail a bike brand is better and safe than the Trailgator. I have used Instep/schwinn, Weeride and my favorite is Adam's. I think Adam's is better, but honestly all of those are acceptable alternatives.
The buddy bar thing is only sold on Ebay as far as I can tell and that makes me even more concerned about the safety aspect. I have tried to find review and thought maybe it was sold in a foreign country, but info just doesn't seem very available. Based on the pictures, I would say that it has just as great a chance of being unstable as the Trailgator. Thus I would recommend staying away from it.
Trail a bike are readily available on nearly all craigslists. Maybe that would be a good inexpensive option.

I also heard many bad reviews on the trail gator. I'll get a review posted on the buddy bar as soon as I get it up and running. Who knows it may be a mistake or maybe not. I'll let you know.
