When my grandsons were much more "portable," my elder son used to pull them around in a kiddie trailer. He certainly appreciated my conversion to a triple half-step-plus-granny chainring setup.

That's the brilliance of @AdventureManCO's Crapamount. Put the trailer connector on the left dropout, and it holds the frame together. Put it on the right dropout, and the frame disassembles automatically.

It's a feature.
