    Anybody use a Buddy Bar

    Search came up with nothing. Curious if anyone has used one of these and how it worked. Here is one like it on eBay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Bicycle-Buddy-Ba...efaultDomain_0

    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.
