Adams Trail-A-Bike

These "half-bicycle" trailercycles allow even a small child to
share the exercise and accomplishment of cycling with a parent.

If you are in Seattle, Washington you can come in for a test ride...but, be warned, after you do, your child will probably insist that you buy one!

Adams Hitch versions:


The Adams hitch has been gradually improved over the years. The early versions are no longer available, so if you have an older Trail-a-Bike and want to buy a new bike receiver, you'll need to upgrade to the new, improved style (the new version is a good deal solider and stiffer than the older ones.)
To convert an older Trail-a-Bike, you need to replace the "knuckle" (the part with the hollow square hole) with the new version.

  • 1997 and earlier model 1/2" square.
  • 1998 model 15 mm square, vertical lock pin
  • 1999 and later model 15 mm square, horizontal lock pin

Call our store for up to date info. 206-706-4700

Telling the size of your square coupling:
The old 1/2" size was 12.7 mm on a side, new improved (1998 and later) version uses a 15 mm square. You don't need a micrometer to tell the difference, a penny will do the trick! If you can fit a penny into the square hole, it's the new 15 mm size.

If your trailercycle uses the old 1/2" (1997 and earlier) version, you won't be able to fit the coin into the hole. You can upgrade to the current system by buying the parts listed below.

Alley Cat
"Alley Cat" was a low-end knockoff brand that is no longer in production. These were not made by Adams, and are of generally lower quality. Sorry, we have no parts for those, only for the genuine Adams Trail-a-Bikes.
