The concept described in this Instructible has been inspired on the discussion in the Comments Section of the recently published openproducts' 'Parent-Child Tandem
' (July 22nd, 2013 - based on a commercially available product) and kelseymh
's Instructable 'Failed attempt at a tow bar for child's bicycle
' (August 21st, 2013).
This weekend project is meant to contribute to the discussion on towing child's bicycles. It was meant as a proof of concept
but the attempt failed miserably.This device does not work as intended, it is very dangerous since the child might be thrown off the bicycle in a curve.
See the next step for a more detailed description of the design failure.
If you like failures you might also enjoy an earlier openproducts' adventure: 'Failed Project: Keeping Snails Away from a Vegetable Garden
' (June 3rd, 2013).
Step 1 in this Instructable documents the 'design features' of this towing construction, while Step 2 provides some suggestions for possible further work. Finally, Step 3 spends some words on the CC-BY license of this Instructable.
