We bought this trailer on clearance at Target last year and used it every now and then for our 25 pound toddler when visiting parks or other places within 3 miles of our home. We live near downtown Orlando and have bike lanes available on many city streets.

The frame and wheels are solid. The trailer seems very stable when turning tight corners and I've never been concerned about it tipping over. We purchased an extra coupler attachment so that we can easily switch it back and forth from my bike to my husband's bike. It's quick and easy to hook up to the coupler on the rear axle of our bikes.

About a month ago, we sold one of our cars and I now use this trailer about 4 days a week to deliver my son to daycare. Under frequent use, it has not held up. I think we're probably now in the market for a Burley or something made a little better. Small issues include (1) one of the front snaps ripping out so that we have to depend on the shoddy velcro to hold the front flap down on that side (I've started using a safety pin this week to keep the flap from flying open and exposing my kid), and (2) the bottom of the safety flag pocket is ripping out so that the flag is in danger of slipping down and dragging on the street (I think I can probably hand-stitch this).

The biggest problem, however, is that the bottom of the trailer where my son's behind sits (remember, he's only 30 pounds but this trailer claims to hold two kids totaling up to 100 pounds) sags lower to the concrete underneath him each day we use it. There is no solid bottom to this trailer and the nylon material doesn't seem to be sewn tight enough (or maybe it's stretching somehow). I've not compared this to other trailers yet, but it seems like a design flaw to me.

This thing folds down for storage in less than a minute and assembles just as fast. It has a 100 lbs weight limit which is twice the limit of some cargo bike trailers which means I can use this for carrying kids, groceries backpacks, luggage, or anything I can fit into it. The reason why it is cheaper than the other Instep trailers is because most other trailers convert into a baby stroller, like the Instep Sierra which is 50% more on the price tag for the same color and capacity. Overall I recommend this buy for first-time bike trailer purchases.

I purchased the carriage for my 4 and 1yr old. Easy to assemble and looks like the picture. My children love it. The only issue I have is that there's not enough support where the kids sit. It's basically material, so when my 4yr old sits in it my 1yr old basically sinks in to him. This probkem is easily solved with a pillow. Other than that it's great I use it twice a day as I am an active biker.

Purchased the double trailer for myself and 2 year old grand daughter. Simply wonderful! Easy set up, easy to maintain, can't even tell its attached to my beach cruiser. We cruise around the beach for hours a day, plenty of room for storage, packing toys, towels and small cooler. My favorite purchase from Amazon!!

Great trailer for a great price! I bought this for my husband for the holidays and was so excited to give this to him! We have a 12 month old daughter and we’ve been talking for a while about how we’d love to take her on bike rides with us. I had originally been looking at the baby/toddler seats that attach directly to the bike, but after researching those online, I starting thinking that a trailer would be a better buy for our family. I figured (1) the bike seat would only last us another year or so, and then my daughter would outgrow it (2) if we grow our family the trailer would be a much better option for us since we wouldn’t have to buy anything else – the double trailer will hold both kids! Another big selling point is this trailer will hold up to two kids, up to 50 pounds each kid. That means this trailer will last us for years! As opposed to a seat that would give us about 1 – 2 years max! And even then, we would only get to use it for one kid at a time.

This trailer specifically is wonderful!

Assembly - Since it was a holiday gift, I wanted to set it all up for my husband so when he saw it he’d be ready to take it out on a ride and not have to fiddle with (what I thought) would be hours of putting this together. I envisioned a lot of swearing, a huge instruction guide, etc. But I was very pleasantly surprised when the entire assembly of the bike took me no more than 30 minutes (and it probably would’ve taken me closer to 10 minutes if I didn’t have my daughter stealing the instructions from me every time I turned around while I was putting it all together). Definitely gets two thumbs up for super simply assembly!

Function – the trailer works awesome! My daughter loved it and it seemed like a very smooth ride for her.

I was SO excited to receive this and couldn't wait to get it assembled and give it a whirl. When assembling, I began to become less and less excited. I was disappointed to find that one of the snaps was bent and will not function (this snap helps hold the top cover down, in addition to the velcro). No biggie... hopefully the velco will hold up. Then, I notice the back reflector is broken. Again... no biggie - I can live with a broken reflector. I finally get to assemble the wheels and find that both the tires are flat and non-functioning. I thought... "all is not lost, I'll just 'air them up'". Well, after spending a half hour trying my hardest to air up the tires... I finally gave up. I don't know if the tubes are busted or if these are just poor quality. I've already assembled the product, have not been able to use yet, and believe it is much too much trouble to have to return. Does anyone have any similar issues and could offer a resolution other than returning? So far, even as excited as I am, I want this to work and feel as though this is of horrible quality.

My advise:
1) don't tear the box open in your excitement to get it out and assembled, it makes shipping/returning back a hassle
2) check the wheels/tires out prior to assembling the whole contraption. This would make it easier to return should as well because everything is still in the box!
