Bike trailers? Where to buy??

Hi,

I've just moved to Stafa, from the Uk and have a 2 year old son who I want to take out for trips on my mountain bike. I see there are some older adds on here for people selling used trailers SO if anyone has one in or around Zurich they want to sell please let me know.

Alternatively can anyone suggest a shop in Zurich I may be able to buy one new from? Searched some of the big sports stores and sites but none seem to sell them or if they do they have only 1 or 2 that are way over budget and or not suitable.

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.

Jason

I've seen a few sold at Coop Bau and Hobby. Perhaps they are a bit cheaper there than at sports stores. You're right that they can be very expensive here in CH.

If you would consider a used one, you could also try Ricardo.ch.

You may even want to consider getting one in Germany or from the UK. He is the German website for Chariots (in English), which can tell you where to find them:

Don't know what your exact requirements and budget are, but probably one of the cheapest new options is from Landi at CHF199.
Not exactly a city centre store - you find them out of town in villages, but you can find your nearest here, by entering your PLZ.

See page 5 of this brochure.

You could buy a used one.

Have a look at http://www.ricardo.ch/search/search....NavBarSearch=1

Find something that suits and is available in your area.

Many thanks for tips guys, think ordering from the UK is the only way to go. Just ordered rear bike seat from www.wiggle.co.uk (free delivery to switzerland!!) gonna ponder which trailer to get for a while.

Do you want one for 1 or 2 kids? I have a Croozer Kid for 2 that I would sell, but I have to make sure my neighbor doesn't want it. (as the name implies, it fits 2 kids ) Let me know if you are interested.
