Child Tag-a-longs Children’s tag-a-longs look like a child’s bike without a front wheel and are attached via an arm to a larger bike. Kids can learn about balance, pedalling and handlebar control but crucially the adult controls steering and speed. They attach securely to the adult’s bike via the seatpost and are quick and simple to connect and disconnect for easier transportation and storage. Merlin Cycles stock a range of child tag-a-longs from one of the most respected manufacturers of tag-a-longs, Avenir.
Child trailers Child trailers are a great way to carry children while cycling. Simply attach the trailer to the seatpost and strap the kids in. They are very stable and easy to control while the rain/sun cover and pneumatic tyres provide comfort for the passengers. Utility or Cargo trailers work the same way and are a great way of safely carrying loads. Merlin Cycles stock a wide range of child and cargo trailers and accessories from two of the best brands in the bike trailer business – Avenir and Burley.
Child Seats Child seats are available in many shapes and sizes to suit all sizes of children and budgets. Innovation means they have become lighter, easier to fit, more secure and ultimately offer greater levels of safety for the child and adult. Please check model compatibility with current bike type and also if a rack needs to be fitted, Merlin Cycles staff will happily advise on suitability. Merlin Cycles stock a wide range of child seats from brands including Topeak, Avenir, Yepp and Hamax.
