I pulled my little girl in her "chariot" (Burly type), behind my Pugs all spring summer and fall. She has her own bike, but for me and the boys to go any distance, she needs to ride in her "chariot".
Never had any issues pulling it. Well besides the way it catches the wind and makes the workout even better??!! Lol
We mostly stick to paved bike trails, gravel roads, and through town.
I have tried it, it works poorly. I have plans to build a custom rack for my Burley Piccolo or some kind of sled that I would attach to the rear dropout.
Here is a picture I took and some discussion around it:
@coldbike- I notice you mention banging into the back wheel, is that just in the snow or on singletrack? The times I will be using a tag a long won't be in the snow but on steady fairly smooth singletrack
Pretty much whenever I went over a hump so that the TAB was angled downward relative to the Pugsley. I have a lot of seatpost to play with since my legs are long and I could not find any way to make it work. Also worth noting is that since I got my Burly Piccolo, I would not go back to a TAB. The Burley is really good and the TAB simply isn't.
I ran a Trail-Gator towbar - makes a regular kid bike into a trailer bike, and you can unhook and let the kid ride their bike - behind my 29er. http://www.trail-gator.com/
When you went over a sufficiently sharp crest, either the two tires would come together or the towbar would rub on the tire. It wasn't horrible - we never crashed - but you could tell it was happening. It amused my daughter, especially when the tires touched - since it would spin up her front tire.
