Re: Cycling with kids -- trail-a-bikes and trailer bikes

I havent seen the Leggero in the flesh, but be careful to compare apples to apples. The model you mentioned doesn't have suspension or multiple uses (bike trailer, stroller, jogger etc) like the CHF900+ models. Still it looks a good price for what it is, though I find it hard to believe it is Swiss made at that price!

A good range is here at Veloplus. The "Croozer" looks more the league of the Leggero.

We ended up buying one of the expensive ones for the suspension and that we are using it as the stroller for our newborn, plus we are car-less bike nuts

Does anyone have any experience ofLeggerobike child trailers? Specifically the Vento? Good points and bad points?

It seems much cheaper than the U.S. imports and is locally made.

It's about 0.5 - 1 Kg heavier than some but these are much more expensive at around CHF1000-CHF1500.

There's a special offer at the moment. Buy 3 and save CHF300.00 in total so each one is CHF399 rather than CHF499. This is direct from the manufacturer.

So, if they any good and I can find two more interested parties in the Zurich area then I'll order three.

We plan to use it mainly on paths and forest tracks. We do currently have a child seat but with that, you can't fit panniers and a rack an it does make stopping a pain as you need to find something to lean the bike against.
