Bike trailers are attached to a bike's rear frame or axle. Many types and styles of trailers for different purposes are available in the marketplace. Bicycle trailers are typically designed so they can be attached securely to the bicycle in a quick and easy manner. Many models feature parts that are easy to assemble, detach and store away.
Bike trailers can function as a child carrier, pet carrier or for transporting cargo. You can find a trailer that can carry your pet or child safely complete with straps and protective enclosures. Trailers that carry pets and children typically have rigid frames with durable fabrics.
When choosing a bike trailer, look for styles with folding mechanism features. Trailers with quick-release wheels that fold for storage allow you to move and store them away quickly and easily. Models like the Quick 'n EZ bike trailer offers features like 16-inch quick-release wheels, lightweight aluminum frame, safety harnesses for two children, durable nylon canopy and rear reflectors to increase safety and visibility.
