    Before we bought our second FollowMe, we thought we would save a little money and try a Trail-Gator instead. We couldn't get the bracket to fit on my son's Cleary Hedgehog, our CNOC 14 or our Beinn...

    With a Yepp Maxi Easyfit, that would actually be really easy to do. You could just mount the Easyfit Carrier on your rack backwards and, voila, rear-facing rear seat.

    If you're considering buying new, I'd get a Burley Kazoo or a Piccolo. As cplager said, the Adams has a lot of play in the hitch, which can make it hard to handle. Or, if you already have a kid's...

    Just curious why you need both the WeeHoo and the Trail Gator? Why can't he just sit on the bike while you tow it with the Trail Gator?

    Anyone have crank shorteners to sell?
