Bicycle trailer reviews of the Adams trail-a-bike brand – If you want to find out the customer experiences of Adams trail-a-bikeusers there aren’t too many places online that you can go.  Sure you can try forums, but reading the customer reviews is also a place you can start.  I tend to find customer reviews a bit misleading in some cases as customers are quick to jump on and provide feedback even after not fully using and testing the bicycle trailer properly.  I would say, ask the users six months or a year later after trying the bicycle trailer and see whether their review of the trailer is still the same as it was when they first wrote it.

I know I have been reasonably happy with my Adams trailer.  It’s provided us with a lot of biking and fun as a family together when the kids were smaller.  As mentioned, Amazon.com is a good place to glance through reviews, there were in excess of 60 reviews on some models of the Adams trail-a-bike brand of bicycle trailers which gives a good sample of users satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) of a particular model.

Blogs – Bike Trailer Reviews

Bike Rumor did a review dated 7 May 2012. The posting was done by Tyler Benedict on an Adams tag along bike after having it for over one year and just using for local and about town riding. The model tested was the original alloy folding Adams trail-a-bike which was basically an all alloy bike frame (being lighter than the steel framed version of the folding bike), easy folding in design and single speed i.e.,. without gears.

Bicycle Times Mag posted an article by Stephen Haynes in July of 2011 about his “Folder 24” Trail-a-bike. There’s a brief description of the bike and a short comment mentioning the 24” bike being a smoother ride than the 20” model. This model also had a seven-speed drivetrain. The reviewers child did have some issues shifting gears. An exciting end to the article was the price component for this model “at $290” in comparison with a standalone bike it doesn’t seem cheap (i.e., the ATB).

Commuting with Trail-A-Bike Original Folder Compact was an article written by Dara Marks Marano in September 2011 reviewed an Adams trail-a-bike original folder (RRP $189) which was a model designed for children down to the age of 3. Generally, the riding experience she found with her child was enjoyable but there were some negative comments made towards the Adams hitch design which earned “a C” in her books.

The Adams hitch  design earns about a C- in my book. There have been times when I was so frustrated trying to attach the trail-a-bike to my bike that I about threw it all out the garage.

Now, I’m no mechanic or engineer, but it seems to me that it would have been both simple and safe to use a dropout-plus-quick-release-plus-safety latch Adams hitch . As it is, lining up the male and female ends, while trying to steady my bike with one hand and the trail-a-bike with the other is just too much for me some days. And inevitably when I go to remove the pin I have to use something to tap it out because it just doesn’t slide out easily.

This makes commuting a challenge. I end up hitching and unhitching the trail-a-bike frequently, and I know people who like to ride their kid to school, unhook the trail-a-bike to leave it at the school, then ride to work. But nonetheless, it sure is better than having no way to commute with your kid.

Don’t we all want our kids to see bike commuting as just a normal way of life? So, until they redesign the hitch, I’ll just get on with it.

Adams Original Folder 1 Trail-A-Bike at performancebike.com has some comments. Overall though a word of caution following remarks is to try and read “between the lines” as some of the comments may be carefully crafted bike trailer reviews by the blog and website owners themselves to generate keywords designed for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and page rankings rather than for the benefit of the readers.

Bike Trailer Reviews on Forum Posts

Birdman posted a question on MTBR.com, and this thread might be worth checking out to see if there’re any updates. The post was started in August 2011 – “Adams – Any opinions?” and Birdman was asking whether it was worth buying an Adams Trail-a-bike. Some people posted positive comments or photographs.

This forum is a UK forum, but the comments apply equally no matter which part of the world you’re in – go here to read. I’ve heard of some lawyers targeting business, but this guy has a particular legal interest in compensation for anyone injured or hurt with a bicycle trailer and bike accidents – http://bicycleattorney.net/recalled-bicycles-bike-parts/

As another note it might be worth checking out a site called Bike Trailer Reviews although this site reviews Burley bicycle trailer and Chariot trailer brand which we have mentioned in a section on our website.

If you have any Bike Trailer Reviews that aren’t mentioned above and that you feel are worth sticking in on our list here please get in touch via our contacts page. I would not only be interested in hearing about sites focusing on the bicycle trailers themselves but also kids bike reviews and perhaps a product name review of relevance.  Examples could include bike racks, hitches, spares and bits for bicycle trailers, problems, and issues that people faced, e.g., tearing of the canopies and challenges with the zips of the enclosed style trailers, etc. to this website.

If like me, you will start hunting around for Adams trail-a-bike trailer reviews you will find a lot of the reviews are old and stretch back a lot of cases 3 to 4 years! Amazon.com is probably your best bet for the latest in reviews.  There have been some bad batches out and recalled in the past and so it’s best to try and get as recent as possible.  Why not even try Facebook groups or post a question on a forum and see if some power trailer users come back and reply.
