I modified a Bob Yak trailer fork to use as a trail-a-bike attachment which allows my son to ride next to me on the trails, then I can re-attach him when we get to busier areas. I’ll be adding some pannier racks and a detachable wheel for more cargo capacity. This is not quite the finished product yet, as I will also be adding a custom paint-job and a few other accessories.

BUT… Here comes Betty Buzzkill (on a Friday nonetheless!!). We love our customers’ inventiveness, but we are huge advocates of the child safety standards set in place. We’d therefore recommend sticking to the use of professionally manufactured trailer-cycles. Burley, in fact, recently introduced their exciting and versatile new Burley Plus Trailercycle Conversion Kit which easily converts Trailer-Cycles into high-quality free-standing children’s bikes. And! Burley trailers and trailer-cycles are now 10% off! at BikeKidShop. As long as we’re going down this road, don’t forget your helmets either! If for no other reason, make it a fashion statement kiddos!
