Will a Trailing 1/2 Bike – Rocket Tag-A-Long – be a solution for you and your family?

A trailing 1/2 bike has success because it is compatible with most standard adult bikes including E-Bikes. It is easy to attach and detach and will allow your family to go on adventures that your child would not be able to manage on their own bike – distance, hills, traffic.

Trailing 1/2 bikes are great for most environments but your child is not harnessed onto their seat so they need to have good basic bike balance skills.

See How to Assemble & Use a Trailing 1/2 Bike for more information.
