Parents are demanding more versatility from their child bike trailers and strollers, and convertible child carriers that can safely transport children in a variety of situations are gaining popularity. Why own a bicycle trailer and a jogging stroller and a walking stroller when you can get all these elements in one, an all purpose wheeled kid carrier?
Schwinn Bike Trailer Mark III
The Mark III Schwinn bike trailer III is one of the most affordable. A lot of other convertible trailers cost twice as much or more. If your objective is a piece of equipment that wont damage your pocket, the Schwinn’s Mark III will suit your need but dont expect a lot of extra frills. The size, weight, and features of this bike trailer are essentially identical to the Schwinn Mark I and II but with one major exception. The Mark III comes with a 16 fixed front wheel kit. This kit makes it a functional jogging stroller in addition to its primary purpose as a bike trailer. It also comes with different fabric colors than other Schwinn models.
This unit utilizes a tough aluminum chassis with an outrigger frame that protects the 20 pneumatic wheels from damage. This one attaches to bikes with a simple universal coupler, and the conversion from bike trailer to jogging stroller requires no tools. A retractable, zippered rain shield covers the ventilated front canopy so passengers or parcels dont get soaked. The Schwinn Mark III is back up by a limited 5-year warranty.
Schwinn Bike Trailer Joyrider
The Schwinn Joyrider Trailer will safely transport one or two children, with a maximum weight capacity of 100lbs. It has all the comforts and safety measures of a high-end bike trailer, plus it also is easy to convert for walking or jogging.
The chassis of Schwinn’s Joyrider is a rustproof aluminum frame mounted on 20 alloy wheels. In bike trailer mode, the Joyrider attaches to any bicycle with the versatile hitch arm, allowing you to cruise with the kids in style. In addition, it comes complete with a 10 front swivel wheel and an adjustable, removable handlebar for strolling indoors and on smooth surfaces. The 16 jogging stroller wheel allows you to take your Joyrider onto the track or trails for a jog or sprint. When not in use, the Joyrider will fold down flat for easy storage.
It also includes a removable, washable seat pad and dual 5 point harnesses. The domed canopy gives this model its unique look, and provides a roomy space for your child. The zip in weather canopy will keep the rain out, while the cool-looking bubbled screened canopy provides ventilation and keeps the air circulating. The seat drops back for tired passengers, or those who just want to recline.
