New Universal Design… Fits Kayaks and Canoes from 10 – 18 feet! Breaks down to sections less than 6 feet for easy storage
Like our PaddleCart and Dually Paddlecart, the Tagalong Bike Trailer is built tough. Made from bright anodized marine grade schedule 40 aluminum pipe, the Tagalong will handle many miles of open road happily following you and your bike to your favorite paddling areas.
A feature of the bike trailer is that it is easily convertible to a standard PaddleCart. Just remove the spring hoop lynch pin and the trailer becomes a cart. That way when the bike trail ends but the waters edge is still a haul, you can walk the final steps easily toting your kayak or canoe.
The Tagalong easily attaches to any bicycle seat post with its simple hitch system. It features a simple U-bolt attachment that requires roughly 2 minutes and a ½” wrench to assemble. Once installed, it’s unobtrusive and can be left in place without interfering with your normal biking activities.
After you have mounted the hitch to your seat post, you can attach the trailer quickly by simply sliding the rubber sleeve over the hitch post and inserting the hoop spring lynch pin.
Want to remove the trailer? Just remove the hoop spring lynch pin and slide the rubber sleeve off. All of this can be done with the kayak or canoe loaded or unloaded.
The “universal” joint is a sturdy spring that is enclosed in a thick rubber sleeve. The spring allows the bike and trailer to articulate in any direction without any binding or stress on the bike or trailer. This mechanism works so well that you can even lay the bike down on the ground and the trailer (and your kayak or canoe) will stay upright. It’s a simple system yet very effective and durable. Like our standard PaddleCart, the Tagalong disassembles into relatively small sections for easy storage. The longest sections are only 72″ long. No need to dedicate a huge chunk of storage space to the Tagalong.
The Tagalong is simple to put together and take apart. The unique and innovative design can be assembled in various ways to accommodate any hull design. From short kayaks to long canoes, the Tagalong is the easiest way to get your craft to the waters edge!
