Fast Bicycle Trailer Conversion Through Modular Design

Chariot child carriers provide outdoor enthusiasts who are also parents or caregivers with a choice of how to maintain or embark on an active lifestyle, while simultaneously introducing young children to the world around them. Unlike other carriers that assume a want and need for a standard stroller, or a static variation of it, Chariot carriers provide users with a carrier that can be customized at any time to accommodate several popular outdoor related pursuits through an unique modular approach to child transportation in which the carrier's standard two-wheeled chassis is combined with one of a variety of conversion kits (sold separately). The Chariot bicycle trailer conversion kit (item # 20100503), is specifically designed to quickly and conveniently transform all Chariot adventure carriers (Cheetah 1 and 2, Cougar 1 and 2, and CX 1 and 2 models) into a bicycle trailer by way of the unique VersaWing 2.0 bracket system build into those carriers.

Easy Attachment to Carrier VersaWing 2.0 Brackets

The Chariot bicycle trailer conversion kit is simple by design, with tow components consisting of only a hitcharm with tethered security pin, paired with an axle-mount ezHitch. All Chariot carriers have two VersaWing 2.0 brackets built into the lower front section of their chassis. The left one of these serves as the connection point of the hitcharm to the carrier chassis. To connect the hitcharm, insert it horizontally into the VersaWing bracket, ensuring that the ezClick button points up. Pressing the ezClick button will allow it to move further into the bracket and snap securely into place. A security pin tethered to the hitcharm is then inserted into the versaWing bracket for extra security. A strap attached to the hitcharm is also looped around the bicycle frame to ensure a connection in the unlikely event of separation during use. The axle-mount ezHitch component is secured to the towing bicycle's axle, using either an existing nut or quick-release configuration, or the supplied quick-release skewer. Once connected, the ezHitch hangs down from the axle. The ball-and-socket end of the hitcharm slips into the funnel-like opening of the ezHitch, and is secured by a security pin. This unique connection type allows the trailer up to a 90-degree turn range. Adjustment of the hitcharm connection to the VersaWing bracket allows for optional pull wagon functionality.

Easy to install and use.

It fits well and allows you to turn both ways, but you can't turn too sharply to the right, only the left.

Quickly attaches to the bike and trailer.

Exactly what I expected, stores right on the trailer, and works great. Have never had a problem. Very happy with the purchase. Easy to put connector and hitch on bike and trailer.

There has since been a recall, so if you buy this, make sure to check if it is one of the recalled varieties, and if it is, please contact the company for an add-on part before using! Still love it!

This item didn't say that it contained a safety flag, so I bought a flag additionally which wasn't necessary to do

This kit is definitely not cheap to buy, but it does mostly work well. Very handy how it stores on the side of the stroller when you want to push it around by hand. You need to be in pretty good shape to pedal the complete rig up any kind of a hill... I think just the hitch receiver that bolts to the bike frame alone is heavy enough to make some weight-weeny bicyclists jump out of their skins. With a kid or two aboard, and the two extra wheels on the ground, it is lots of fun on level ground but a real workout on hills you used to consider easy before. Don't even talk about a headwind on that hill!

The Thule catalog shows a stroller being towed behind a mountain bike, off-road, with no fenders. Well, you better keep the plastic top zipped up tight, otherwise your kid will have a mouth full of dirt and deer poop. Even the Planet Bike fenders on my utility bike come up a couple inches short of offering complete protection.

I'm scared to use this on any highway or road with any amount of traffic. If you do, be sure to get a baby-sized bike helmet for each kid aboard. My nephew was killed in a car/bicycle accident, and it was a very sad business. It would be a good idea to have the helmet in any case, as I'm not 100% sure even our wide double stroller can't tip over if you turn sharp on a cross-hill.

The ball on the end of the hitch bar is plastic of some sort. Usually it can pivot freely to any normal angle while riding, and even allows you to lay your kickstand-free bike down on the ground if you do it carefully. I had no trouble doing tight loops in the road in either direction. But I think it is possible to get the hitch ball into a bind under non-riding conditions, and I'm not sure how much abuse it can take without breaking.

Could not get by without this trailer kit for our Chariot trailer. Fast and easy assembly and very user friendly. Quickly attaches to the bike and trailer. If you do a lot of cycling with the trailer I definitely recommend this trailer kit.

As advertised! Works great and should last a long time. I'm testing it with my grand kids this week end.

I have a 29er mtn bike and this works perfectly. Did my first 2 hour ride the other day and zero complaints. Plus, cheaper on amazon than most other places
