    Whats the advantage of the trailer? Seems like hard work to tow to me.
    Most trailers can carry 2 kids, and there's also room for cargo, and protection from elements. None of that with a on-bike kid seat.

    New addition to the fleet now that my oldest can ride a bike on her own. And now she can join me on some longer rides without having to ride in a trailer. First outing to the local park.

    I've also (unfortunately) demonstrated another benefit of trailers. The bike can fall over and the trailer will stay upright.

    So far I've been lucky, Only easy trails with the little cargo on the back. But as you can see, the wife comes biking with me this way.
    Oh and yes, her feet get strapped in while riding.

    Awesome!
    "The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult."
    Reading without understanding is useless

    "Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial." - go figure lol

    Well it's not a family pic but it is a trailer pic. I committed a major sin today lol. I normally haul the trailer with my MTB set up for road use. But it wasn't set up today so I *gasp* hooked it up to my road bike to make a quick Target run.
