- Trailgator – Seat tube fitting problem..
It should have come with a few different size plastic shims. If even without these it still doesn’t fit then I would suggest the pervious owner has bent the clamp in too far and it needs quite a lot more bending to open it up. I’ve come across this before I just had to bend it open.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve taken all the shims out, and as above tried to bend the clamp open further..no joy.
To be honest it was a bad purchase. It’s rusty, so I assume quite old, and the stabiliser arm that goes from the handlebar to the arm is missing.
Telco are doing complete new ones for £40 at the minute, so half tempted to buy the whole thing brand new. Obviously no point though if it won’t fit my bike..Posted 4 years ago
I’ve recently bought a Trailgator second hand on ebay.
For the life of me I can’t get it to fit my bikes which have 30.9 seat posts. The instructions (online) say it wil go up to 31.8 seat post size, but there is no way it will fit. I’ve even take the bracket apart and bent it open a bit more!
All I can now think is that older versions were made for smaller seat post, and the more modern ones are made for wider seat posts?Posted 4 years ago

Rickt. Thanks for that, reserved one at my local Halfords to pick up this aft. Will take the seat post to see if it fits
No worries, I have been looking at them too but can’t decide if my lad is too small yet, he’s between bike seat and gator but I can see him wanting to get off or me having to go slow……….Posted 4 years ago
Go for it I would say. Bought and installed today! Then spent about 2 hrs having to ride up and down the street, he wouldn’t get off it!!
Jnr FD has been in a Weeride (which he loved) but has grown too big for it at 3 and a bit.
He’s had a balance bike for about a year, and zooms around on that. He got the bike in the pic about 2 months ago, but won’t pedal it, I think this will encourage him when I get the pedals back on.
