It isn't hard to ride or handle. I thought that it would be hard for me to maintain my balance, but it isn't. I would recommend this item to anyone who has a child; who for whatever reason needs trainig wheels or is too young to keep up.
Both of my kids, very cautious and timid girls, loved being able to ride like a grown-up while having the security of being attached to mom or dad. Once my eldest got the hang of it, she went to a two-wheeler after a solid year of not even wanting to ride with training wheels, and now she's racing all over the place on her own. Our younger daughter loves it, too, and it enables our whole family to be active together. Highly recommended for young families who want to be outside and biking together.
I, like one of the other reviewers, have had problems with my seat turning and staying there whenever I make a turn. The pivot point on the tandem looks like it's built to pivot up and down, left to right. However, it is just to tight. I suggested that my husband loosen the bolt but that causes the trailer to wobble to much. I've learned to not make that many 90 degree turns! I hope to contact the manufacturer and try to resolve the problem. It looks like the washers might be on the wrong side of the connection.
All that said, it is a great thing to be able to go bike riding with the kids and not have to worry about them riding their own bike and all the waiting for them to catch up.
Had a minor problem with a broken retaining rivet on the coupling bolt, but was quickly resolved with a bolt and nut from our local hardware store without compromising safety. Haven't contacted Instep yet.
The main bar folds in half making it great for transport or storage. Construction is typical of a youth bike.
This has generated lots of interest from those we pass by....
Happy Biking and Glory to God!!
