    I'm hoping to need that in the next 10 months or so. Your's will probably be gone by the time I need it but now I know what the first thing we will be registering for when the time comes.
    Racing is life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

    You know CL all too well. Next you'll want to know how much...and 6 other questions that are answered in the listing.

    ping the forum at that time. I will be selling mine eventually, but might wind up hanging onto it for a long time as a utility hauler. You really cant take a baby in it til their neck gets strong, for us that was ~9 months old. Rhino might have done differently, they do sell neck supports. Start trolling CL now, or scoping out REI etc. sales. The Chariot is worth the money, imo, and does a good job holding its value. I had a Burley too and did not like it as much.

    to add some content, and take the Spam Sandwich out of my post.ol

    Cholla was spot on with the neck strength comment. We used some support pillows, and took it easy the first couple of weeks/months. Once the kids toughened up, it was balls to the walls in the trailer.

    We also have a Burley double. We are keeping the Burley to haul the smallest kid and as a utility trailer as Cholla mentioned, since it is priced a little more economical. The Burley is definitely is a great value for the dollar. We bought the Chariot because I really wanted to get down to business and haul my kid around the White Mountains XC style. The only attachment I didn't seem to buy for the Chariot, was the stroller wheel, which looking back we really wish we had, we might have used the Chariot a bunch more.

    Pulling the kids around is great resistance training.

    I have the CX2 and I would say it could hold 4 30 packs no problem. Probably 6 if you really want to take it to the next level.

    30 pack definitely fits in the rear pocket, but leans against the kids.

    In hindsight i also would have bought the jogging stroller attachment. we also have a nice jogging stroller, but its just as annoying to fold up. where i've really wanted it was on roadtrips so you would have one less piece of crap to haul in the truck.

    I was assuming no kids while hauling beer. Come on priorities. I would say the rear pocket could hold another 18 pack or a couple bottles of Jager in addition to the main compartment.

    Its actually quite funny talking about this because it reminds me of the saddle bags I put on my motorcycle several years ago. Boss Bags I believe. They actually label their products based on how many cans of your "favorite beverage" you can fit in each bag. I went with the 44's

    riding with kids...

    "daddy I dropped my barbie shoes"
    -Rhino stops, picks up barbie shoes, continues ride
    10 minutes later
    "daddy"
    "what?"
    "I dropped barbie's purse"
    "how do you keep dropping stuff out of the side of the trailer"
    "I don't know daddy"
    -Rhino stops,looks around, picks up barbie purse, continues ride
    "quit dropping stuff" said seriously, but with patience
    "ok, daddy" with a cute smile
    -15 minutes later
    "daddy..."
    "what did you drop now?"
    "barbie's dog"
    -Rhino stops, looks around, can't find the dog, keeps looking.
    "I can't find the dog, where did you drop it?"
    "way back there"
    "back by the driveway"
    "no daddy, back by the light"
    "the light at the intersection"
    "yes daddy, way back there"
    "why didn't you say something when you first dropped it"
    "I didn't want you get mad at me"
    -Rhino reaches in the back of the trailer...
    -Grabs beer and chugs it.

    drinking with kids...

    We hardly use our Chariot but I'm reluctant to part with it - especially with the weather turning kid friendly.
