I actually decided to buy a bike trailer for 2 reasons, to go jogging and for our upcoming family European vacation. The bike trailer with a stroller conversion kit is ideal for jogging and when folded makes it ideal for travel. (You can check it in for free and pick it up at the oversize luggage claim, not on the baggage carousel)
I researched brands including Burly, Thule Chariot, Instep, Schwinn, and Giant. I wanted a trailer large enough to fit 2 children, my 6 month old son, and my 6 year old nephew. I needed to have a conversion kit and storage space. It also needed to fit my budget of $500 or less.
In the end I decided to purchase the Giant Pod Duo which was in the intermediate price range. The Giant Pod duo sits 2 children weighing up to 100 lbs combined. It has a five point shoulder harness to keep kids secure, extra support under the seat so kids don’t sink in or sag, and a jogger converter. Most importantly considering our upcoming vacation it folds easily and has a large storage space.
We took it out for a run the other day, my son loved it! He sat safely secured in his harness, the ride was very smooth even over uneven pavement, no shaking or jostling. My baby enjoyed the ride so much he promptly fell asleep, a sure sign that it was a comfy ride even tho the seat does not recline as other stoller seats do.
I know our Giant Pod Duo will come in handy when we stroll down the cobblestone roads in Italy. It will comfortably sit my baby and my nephew with room to spare. The large storage will fit all the baby gear and even have enough room of our shopping.!
