How Do We Pick The Best Trailers?
Bike trailer has different forms of use. It can be used as a simple trailer attached to your bicycle. Or sometimes it can be used as stroller or jogger too. But whatever the purpose, before picking up the best trailers you should consider following 11 criteria. These are 1) trailer type 2) budget 3) size 4) seat type 5) external covers and venting 6) trailer bottom type 7) storage 8) wheels 9) brakes 10) suspension and 11) adjustable handlebars
Now let us give a brief explanation of some of the main points of the best trailers. First is trailer type. There are mainly three types of the trailer: simple trailer, trailer + jogger or stroller (either jogger or stroller but not both) and multi-sport trailers. Your best trailer must be in accordance with trailer type. The second point is budget. Trailer price range is 100 dollars to 1,000 dollars. Costly trailers, of course, offer most features and ensure smooth riding. But low-cost trailers are also sufficient for many peoples, particularly who want to ride in the paved surface.
Our third point is storage. All trailers come with a storage area behind the seat to accommodate kid and trip essentials. The storage area should have plenty of room for keeping jackets, a diaper bag, lunches, basket-sized balls, etc. The fourth point is the external covers and venting. Plastic rain cover protects kids from rain and direct sunlight exposure. The fifth point is a suspension. The suspension is the driving force of making a smooth, comfortable ride.
Our last point of discussion is an adjustable handlebar. The usability of a trailer either in stroller or jogging mode largely depends on the adjustable handlebar. As we mention before starting this discussion regarding the best trailers, all 11 points are important though we give only short insights into 6 of them. But you should give even emphasis on all 11 criteria.
