Burley Piccolo: weight & safety/stability
I'd like to get the Piccolo but have a large, heavy Dutch bike (40lbs). We've got a few fairly steep hills around here, and wonder if I'll have to hop off and haul it all up hill. My son is just four (45lbs), so unlikely to contribute to the effort of riding. Is this a fairly common issue for trailerbikes?
Also, we cross some busy, crazy streets. My son has been in the trailer, so fretting about him walking beside me hasn't been an issue. I'm planning on getting the seat back w/safety strap, and would like to keep him strapped in while I walk across. Is it fairly easy to hop off, cross a street but keep the trailabike stable with a kid on the back?
I just hope this thing will fit my bike!
Thanks for any input!
