The Economical Child Carrier for Active Parents

The Croozer 525 is designed for active parents who want and need a single carrier to serve as a stroller and a bicycle trailer for young children. In addition to its two main 20" wheels, used in both stroller and trailer modes, the carrier includes a front-oriented stroller wheel, and a drawbar and axle hitch for use in bike trailer mode. The carrier accommodates 1-2 children in individual, side-by-side seats, each with padded harnesses. It also includes protective external bumpers, and a low center of gravity to reduce the possibility of the carrier overturning. A low center of gravity is important in multi-child carrier designs, in the event the carrier is used for a single child, which can create unbalanced weight distribution. The unit assembles easily, with side walls folding up from a flat position, locking erect and being secured in place with metal pins. The fast folding ability also ensures convenient storage when not in use. The Croozer 525 also features a 2-in-1 weather cover consisting of a roll-up transparent window and an insect net underneath it, and a convenient extra large rear-oriented storage compartment.

Use as a Stroller Mode

In this mode a rear angled handlebar with a non-slip grip cover attaches at the rear of the unit, while a stroller wheel, with 360-degree mobility range allowing for maximized maneuvering, attaches at the lower front. Both attachments are quickly connected and disconnected using a securing pin, and spring clip bolt. To ensure that the unit never rolls away, the Croozer 525 includes parking brake functionality along the wheel axles. (The front stroller wheel should always be removed in bicycle trailer mode.)

Use as a Bike Trailer Mode

When used in bike trailer mode, the Croozer 525 connects to a towing bicycle by a combination of a hitch element that attaches to the rear axle of the bicycle wheel, and a single rugged drawbar with a coupling at its far end. Both the hitch and the drawbar are left-aligned, attaching to the bike, opposite the rear derailer. This eliminates the possibility of trailer interference with the shifting of bicycle gears. The hitch element is semi-permanently mounted on the rear axle, and is compatible with both axle nut and quick release hub configurations.

To attach the drawbar to the Croozer 525, lift the body of the carrier and slide the drawbar into the downward angled hole at the left-lower position. Once the drawbar is in, pivot it up and level with the rest of the carrier. This will align the bar in a metal channel underneath the unit that is designed to add strength and rigidity to the bar during towing. Engage the safety pin through the holes in the bottom of the channel edges and secure the bar with the provided safety pin. The coupling opposite at the opposite end of the drawbar slides over the hitch element -- already attached to the a bicycle axle -- and is secured with a spring bolt clip. The bolt is strapped to the drawbar, so it will never be lost when the drawbar is removed is removed. The drawbar also has a safety strap connected to it that wraps around the bike frame. This ensures a connection to the bike in the unlikely event of the drawbar disconnecting from the hitch during use. The drawbar section just below the coupling is flexible, providing smooth pivoting into turns. (The drawbar should always be removed when in stroller mode.)

After doing significant research on bike trailers for children, I opted for Croozer Designs brand because it got great reviews from a few bike enthusiasts. The 525 model has separate seats for each child, as in separate "hammocks" on each side for each seat - many other brands of double trailers have a single "hammock" with two seat harnesses, resulting in both children eventually leaning in towards the middle and each other. The 525 seats remain separate and flat and a very comfortable ride even for taller children.
Assembly of the trailer was relatively easy, although I put the front bumper on upside-down the first time - beware.
There is a lot of storage space behind the seats.
The screen and rain cover included are sturdy, fit well, and store easily.
Installation of the trailer hitch on the bicycle is very easy, although I had to insert the screw in the opposite direction (as mentioned in the instruction manual might be required) which meant a little more work.
Attaching and detaching the trailer is a piece of cake too.
The only downside is finding vendors who sell the Croozer 525, but Amazon came through and had the best price.
Overall, I have been thrilled with my purchase!

This is truly an amazing stroller/trailer.

I just got back from a trip to the store... I was pulling my daughter & purchased 40 cans of food & 20 boxes of rice/mac'ncheese etc. It ALL fit in the trunk (except my daughter! She was in the front!). I was amazed at how easily it still pulled behind the bike... and i'm 5 months pregnant! I am sooo glad we have this trailer. If anything goes drastically wrong with it, i'm buying another, it's definitely worth the price.

The things i like about it:

1. No awkward "arm" with a wheel on the front for when it is converted to a stroller.
2. HUGE "trunk"
3. Roomy enough for two + toys & blankets for a long ride
4. Easy to push
5. Turns on a dime
6. Pulls easily behind my bike
7. Easily converts from stroller to trailer & back again

NOTE: We used our stroller (as a stroller) probably 10 miles a week... in less than a year the rubber on the tires had worn through & one of the tires was flat. It was a $30 fix... bought new BMX tires (just the rubber part) & now we'll be able to go much longer i'm sure. This is my ONLY complaint.

We looked high and low for the perfect bike trailer. We planned on spending $150 originally, but couldn't find anything safe and comfortable for that price. We ended up looking at the croozer 525, schwinn joyrider, and a barely used Chariot Cougar. Well, in my opinion the croozer beats all hands down. First the joyrider seems completely unsafe withut any side or top roll bars for protection, the cougar was nice but my children found the seat uncomfortable, not enough leg room, and overall a small tight cabin. In the ended we ended up with the Croozer 525 and couldn't be happier. I am 100 pounds and find it easy to pull, the bucket style seat are great, it has lots of storage, is easy to convert to a stroller, and seems very safe. Most importantly my kids, husband, and I all love it. It is so fun and perfect. I would highly recommned to anyone. We looked 535 and if I had extra money I would have bought it because it does have slighly more head room, but we didn't need jogging wheel so couldn't justify extra price.

By the way are kids are 5, 2, and 5 months. The 5 year old is 42 inches and has about 2-3 inches of growth before hitting top. I figure she can get one more summer of use out of it. Because of bucket seats 5 month old can also ride. I just wish there were 3 seats.

I bought my Croozer used, and am the 3rd owner. It came with all the accessories: jogger wheel, swivel wheel, stroller handle, bike trailer arm, and 2 hitch attachments so you can switch between 2 bikes easily.

There is NOTHING I dont like about it. I also have a Baby Jogger Switchback and I think this stroller/trailer is better overall, because of the swivel wheel option, and the rear storage trunk (Switchback lacks both of these things). It tracks straight when jogging with the fixed wheel and is light as a feather. One finger push AND can turn with one hand (yes popping a wheely). It hauls behind the bike really nicely too, the large wheels give it a very smooth and effortless ride. With the huge trunk, you can easily ride or run to the store and put your groceries in it. Switching between all the attachments is very quick and easy.

The best thing about it tho: being on its 3rd home now, it has held up absolutely AMAZINGLY. It barely looks used. The harness straps are not padded but are in perfect shape - no fraying or breaking, the seat is comfortable and 2 separate seats so the kids dont roll into the center into each other, and the floor, while not solid like I love in my Switchback, is reinforced and plenty firm (not just flimsy material). The seats also adjust so you can make the back firmer and straighter for stroller mode or loosen the mesh part to allow space for a helmet.

These are very high quality trailer/strollers at half the price of other high end trailers (some that dont convert at all to a stroller or have the stroller conversion as an expensive extra), and while it doesnt have some of the features the Switchback has i.e. handbrake, it does have other things the Switchback doesnt and includes all the accessories.
