I have been meaning to write to you sooner, but being a mother of an active 10 month old boy, it has been difficult to find time to do household chores, or take a shower (I have already had to leave the computer twice since starting this e-mail- he is into everything!)
I am, however, finding time to mountain bike with my son in the UFO Trailer, and we are enjoying it so much! Until we got the trailer, my husband and I would “take turns” riding on the weekends, while the other spouse took care of our son, Rex. Now, we can enjoy our passion for mountain biking as a family – we have been going 3 to 4 times a week! Rex loves it too – our rides last from 1 ½ to 2 hours, and he is as happy as can be.
I love my little boy more than anything, which is why I wanted to take him riding on the trails with me. It is also why I am so happy with the UFO Trailer. The seat and harness holds him very securely. We even tipped over on a rough section of trail, and Rex hardly even noticed! At first, I thought that the roll cage was a bit “overbuilt”, but now I don’t think so – it really protects my kid, and keeps out any overgrown brush, tree limbs, etc. And it is surprisingly easy to pull – even up hills. I also appreciate how well balanced it is during cornering and maneuvering through the terrain.
As I mentioned earlier, we are using the trailer a lot and it is getting noticed by other mountain bikers on the trails. Please send me some more of your business cards to pass out to interested riders. In the last month of riding with it, there have been several serious inquiries as to how to contact your company. I would be glad to carry a few of your cards in my backpack to pass on to others while out riding.
This trailer is AWESOME! It is also an expensive item, but for us, it was worth every penny. If you have any customers who are considering the investment and would like to talk to someone who rides a lot, please feel free to pass on my name and e-mail address, or phone number. I’d be happy to answer any of their questions and let them know how much our family is enjoying it. Of course, I do not work for Gober Gear, but if we have another baby, maybe you could sell me another trailer for a discount (ha ha ha!)
Thanks again for making such an awesome product – might I recommend a “trail-a-bike” type product with a rear shock for an older child? If you don’t come up with it, maybe I will!
