Assembly was very easy.

A good alternative to the one cheap piece of junk or the super expensive bike trailers at the fancy bike store.

Color Name: Black/Gray/Green Verified Purchase
Price: for what you get Great

Size: Best there is including expensive competitors but still cramped for two. Wheel guards make this thing pretty wide.

Quality: It seems in accordance with price.

Assembly: Easy

Ease of use: uses snaps and velcro. Opening and closing the passenger and luggage compartments is could be improved by using buckles instead of snaps. the older models clips were easier to use than the snap.

Comfort: My kids say they like it but still would like more room. Seat is hardly a seat. It is a sling. Has cup holders they like.

Attach to bike: Easy note: - DOES NOT fit all bikes (needs half inch radius clearance around the nut on the rear wheel opposite the chain to attach the coulper)

Ease to walk with: Very good

Jogging: Passable with or without the 3rd wheel. I do not often use it to run b/c I have a koolstop double jogger.

This is my 3rd bike trailer. It is my second from in step.

Durability: My last instep was used when I got it. I loaded 2 kids, library books and groceries in it 10+ miles per week for 2 years. When its frame broke I searched through hundreds of reviews from $70-$300 trailers. This one has now been in service for over a year. I have beat the daylights out of it and it keeps going.

I got this (NEW) because it claimed to be larger and lighter than in-step's entry level and other brand's trailers. I also liked the ability to unhook it and walk/run with it.

Size: Compared to the Quick and EZ:

It is larger in the luggage area, shoulder area (25 inches vs. 20 inches.) and foot well width is 22" vs. 20" (foot reach is the same 12" from front of seat to cross bar at toes). height is equal.

I have 2 children, ages 2 and 4 and they fit well inside this trailer. They have space for their shoulders, heads and legs as well as a space for waterbottles, etc. We especially like the hitch. It actually hooks around the bike instead of just needing to be tightened around a bar, so there is no chance of it coming loose and falling off. We had a lots of problems with this in our previous bike trailer. It doesn't have lots of frills, but we use it at least a few times a week and have loved it. We also have 2 jogging strollers from Instep and they are great. I trained for a whole year for a marathon while pushing 2 kids in it and it's still going strong! Instep is a good quality brand with great prices.

This trailer does not attach to all bikes. Upon receipt of the product, I assembled the trailer and attempted to take it for a spin. I was extremely frustrated when I found that the trailer would not attach to my GT Avalanche 3.0. I contacted the manufacturer and they told me to return the product as there is no attachment that would fix the problem. My bike does not have an abnormal frame and I was shocked to learn that the trailer would not work. Unless you have a bike frame with a very WIDE and FLAT area where the quick release mechanism attaches to the bike, I would suggest staying away from this product. I am now looking for a trailer that will attach to the actual frame and NOT to the quick release mechanism.

Just came today and was pretty easy to assemble out of the box, took me about 45 minutes even though I'm not mechanically inclined. After the tires were pumped and I had attached it to the bike (which is a Trek MTB 800 with a quick release back tire - was super easy to attach the coupler to the bike) we took it for a spin.

Pro's -
- Sturdy frame
- Relatively easy to assemble
- Great foot space and overall space inside
- Great additional space in back of the child's seating area to stow groceries, picnic stuff or whatever you want to transport
- Easy pull but you'll definitely need a bike with gearing to help with hills. I don't feel any weight when I'm riding flat but when I hit hills, I know I'm towing. And I teach Spin and cycle outdoors so I'm not really an average bike Mom, and I still felt it. Prepare yourself there, but it's great for the body so it's a good challenge as long as you have that ease of gear to turn up or down. Without gear I wouldn't be a very happy lady on any real hills.
- Good turning radius. This has been a real issue with some of the other brands but I found turning in any direction very easy and effective. It takes relatively sharp turns with grace as well. (I know.. I'm not supposed to be doing that but I wanted to test what I could and could not do with it)
- Smooth ride for my daughter
- Children don't have access to the backseat storage area, like with some other brands
- I think the clear windows are a pro, not a con (there's no sunroof lighting so they're not being beat down on. She enjoys looking out of the windows and seeing what's going on, if she's getting warm I simply roll up the entire front of the carrier and let the cool air in and she's fine. The clear windows were a plus in my book.

I ordered this last month, got it and put it together pretty easily. Did not get a chance to use it though until this past weekend (a month later).

There was plenty of room to stow a small cooler and a few necessities behind the seat, plus lots of room for my daughter (22 mos).

She is getting used to riding in it, but I am sure she will love it in the long run.

It's light as a feather, easy to put togther and very well made.

One note: I need to buy a mirror, so I can see what's going on behind me now.
