If you are looking for a value for money pet stroller that can be converted into a trailer, the Best Choice Products 2 in 1 Pet Dog Bike Trailer, Bicycle Trailer Stroller is well worth a look.
At this price the stroller/trailer is excellent value for money, however, as the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”, so don’t expect the same build quality as seen on some of the much more expensive machines. But, for the price it is quite a robust design with well-made parts.
Build quality & Design:
As mentioned previously, the build quality is slightly higher than we expected to see on a machine within this price range. The main frame is a very sturdy steel construction that should withstand the rigors of daily use.
As for the design of the product, it does seem to have a lot of features that you would normally only see on the higher priced models. Rear suspension, pneumatic tires, and an adjustable handle height are all included as standard.
Size & Weight:
One important point to mention regarding the size of the Best Choice stroller is that the width may be too wide to fit through a standard doorway, so, if you do need to take it into your home or store it in a shed and don’t want to keep folding it down, check the entrance sizes before purchasing.
At 37 pounds the stroller is in the middle weight range for a stroller/trailer, which is good news if you need to regularly lift it into and out of a vehicle.
Entry System and Canopy:
With entry points at the rear, front and top, the Best Choice Stroller makes it very easy to load and unload the pet.
The canopy is manufactured from a water resistant polyester fabric and a roll-down cover protects the pet from rain and the sun. The mesh windows on all four sides provide plenty of ventilation and also act as bug stoppers.
Pockets on either side of the canopy enable you to store small items.
Inside the trailer/stroller:
A padded, washable mat is included with the stroller, but, it is quite thin and you may want to put some extra padding in the cabin to ensure the pet is comfortable.
There is a short tether inside the cabin, which can be attached to a collar or harness.
All three wheels have pneumatic (air filled) tires, which, when combined with the rear suspension gives a very smooth and bump free ride. The front wheel is 9.5″ and the rear wheels are 19″.
The front wheel can be either locked in position for jogging/rough terrain, or used in the swivel position for more maneuverability.
When converted to a pet bike trailer the front wheel assembly is stored at the rear of the product.
There is also a hand operated, rear wheel brake which can be locked in the “on” position, enabling a stable base when loading and unloading your pet or pets.
The universal towing hitch can be fitted to most bikes in a matter of a few minutes. Connecting the trailer to the bike is simply a case of removing the front wheel assembly, folding the towing arm from underneath the stroller and connecting it to the hitch on the bike.
Building the Trailer:
Although the instructions for building the product are very poor, if you take your time and lay everything out on the floor, it soon becomes apparent what goes where. If you do have any question regarding the assembly, post the question on Amazon and wait for the replies to come back.
With over 140 reviews on Amazon and a very high rating, the product does genuinely appear to be a bargain buy.
