Tangential bike content


On Christmas hols as EC proposal deadlines meant I took only one short week off post maternity and have a pile of backlog.

Little guy is displaying good head and neck control for his age so we're considering bike trailers soon, ideally ones that can double as a pram which will enable us to offload the original pram and keep only the trailer and fully collapsable Maclaren. Any HuSites with opinions on such decices? Especially experience based opinions. Also considered the little Römer bike seats but frankly I am not stable enough a cyclist to use one so it could not then be used for daycare pickups/dropoffs.

Watched 5 episodes of The Killing back to back yesterday. i think I can now understand Danish and really want a Faroese jumper. Though not enough to drop 300 quid on one.

Looks like we may be in the UK peak district this summer, hiking with nerds. Anyone else interested in hiking with nerds and drinking beer I can PM details to.

Hm. My browser is autofilling every empty field...

One of the bigger cycling communities, they have a Recreational and Family sub-section. If you search, there are probably threads about trailers on a weekly basis.

Your local bike shops should be able to help out too.

I've been happy with my basic non-convertible Chariot, and know people with more expensive models from them as well. They make trailers that match your needs, looks like they have some dealers in CH. I found their website dealer locator to be odd in my browser - it only showed a cluster around Luzern, and I had to type in other city names (eg, Zurich) to get any shops to show in other places.

Thanks for the tip by Merekat (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Dec 19, 2012 at 11:08:25 AM EST
One of the chariiot options is very likely but I'm keeping an open mind.
