I bungee them to the top of the plastic tote that usually rides in my BOB. It's the perfect width. I'll have to figure out another method when we get our Big Dummy soon.

I went ahead and ordered two pairs. I'm putting a child seat on it and I want it solid. Too busy with business and family to screw around trying to rig something.

Single trailers are much more maneuverable than double-wheel trailers. However once you load it past about half of the rider's weight it can start getting hard to control. Don't let that make you...

We've given it a lot of thought and prefer the Long John style so we can see the kid, and also for a smoother ride. We'll have it setup so a safety seat can be properly mounted.

My wife and I are expecting our first child this summer :) We're car-free so it's time to find a bike for hauling kids. Seems like a bakfiet aka "long john" is going to be the best bet.

Huh? The videos on youtube looked like people just making bags out of bags. Why not just use the originals? Or even better, don't get them in the first place?

I recently had a custom red LED p60 module made up. It's too bright in blinkie mode unless it's pointed at the ground. I think I'll check out the Radbot 500 for use as my main blinkie.
