First the short story:
My son Jacob is 7, and he loves to bike to school. I ride with him in the morning and my wife usually picks him up after school... but she doesn't bike. The problem started when Jacob moved to a bigger 20" bike, which wouldn't fit in the car trunk. I was sure I could buy some bike2bike towing device on the web, but to my great surprise I couldn't find anything except trail-gator tow bar, which is only suitable for smaller bikes (also Jacob’s bike frame construction would not fit a trail-gator receiver)
Eventually I built such a device on my own and use it every day since.
a. it can tow any 20” or 26” kid bike
b. loading of the towed bike is very fast (~30 sec) and easy - no bolts involved
c. when folded this device works like a regular cargo rack and it installs exactly like a cargo rack
Cargo carrying mode
I was wondering if such a system can be of use for other people. I’d greatly appreciate your feedback.
If there is someone who really needs it now, I can possibly build few more at a cost of material
