    What bothers me with a swivel wheel, and we've all seen it,
    What does it feel like when it gets into a supermarket trolly Tiz, I cant think of a better description for it but you know what I mean Yes?:Eeek:

    :Laughing: No. That's 4 wheels all going in a different direction at the same time. :Rofl1:

    Hi Geo, no idea but maybe it doesn't happen with this arrangment. I like the idea, been think of chopping the scooter in for something bigger, but worried about the extra weight on the rear, this seems to be one possible answer.

    :Smile: I remember seeing a system where the rear Bike wheel is actually the trailer wheel. It has a Front wheel fixing on the towbar similar to a bike rack.

    Hi John yes I have seen them but I would imagine reversing without removing the bike is impossible; for me anyway. :BigGrin:

    Hi,
    I first saw this idea many years ago and have allways born it in mind for a home made carrier.
