It's so much more stable - it is heavier, but safer too.

My son loves riding it, and my husband and I love being able to ride as a family.

So far I do recommend this bike, most trailers like this start at 140 and up.

I was looking for a good deal on these bike trailers that will have a short life at our household. Our twin girls are about one summer away from learning to ride without training wheels, and we want to do a lot of biking with them.

I think I found just the right product, buying two of these Schwinn models. You won't confuse these with the high quality Schwinns of your Baby Boomer youth, but they are made well enough. I expect they'll last at least a few years with minimal maintenance.

Assembly can be figured out easily, which is good since the instructions are for entertainment purposes only :) but have on hand both metric and English allen wrenches. It took about 20-30 minutes to put together the first one, about 15 minutes to assemble the second one. The hardware is cheap, so be careful tightening bolts and screws, and make sure you have the proper alignment of the pieces before tightening. If you've put together furniture from IKEA, you know what I mean.

The connection to the adult bike seatpost is solid. A block of aluminum holds a sturdy pin that attaches to the trailer arm. I leave the connection on the adult bikes and remove the post to detach the trailer. Quick and easy. And pretty stable. All of these kinds of trailers will have a little wobble because the connections are joints, but this trailer does not have a lot of play in the design. When trying this out for the first time, I would recommend holding your bike straight up and asking your child to get on the trailer (helmet on? check!), then walk your bike very slowly so they can get the feel of the thing, which they will think is weird. Only when they feel comfortable moving along slowly should you (in my opinion) get on your bike and ride.

We have three kids -7, 6 and 2. The 7-year-old can ride his own bike on family bike rides, the 2-year-old rides in a trailer and the 6-year-old needed something in between. We bought this trailer bike for her. It was easy to put together and seems to be built well-enough. It's not a top-of-the-line bike, but for the few years our family will use it it will be very sturdy and functional. The best of everything just isn't always the most practical when extra cost is involved and you'll only be using it for a few years. Honestly, I think it will last several other children past ours.

She quickly customized it with anything she could find that was pink and/or purple. After that, she and her father took off. Initially, it was tricky. The bike trailers really well behind an adult bike w/out a child on it. With a child who doesn't really understand balancing on a bike it gets more difficult to ride. When the child sways from side to side it does pull the adult bike off balance. HOWEVER, she quickly developed the balance she needed to make the ride more smooth. She needed to learn to trust her dad to not tip them over because she was trying to over correct when she felt unbalanced. Once she figured this out, everything was golden. She peddles and actually contributes to the ride. My husband will let her push both of them by herself. What a great way to use that over-energetic child to make something EASIER for a change! I think that her balance on her own bike will come much more quickly now that she knows how to make it happen on the trailer bike as well. Good all around. Now it's the first thing on her list to do when her dad gets home. -And off on a family bike ride we go.

We're happy with the purchase. It would be nice to have one extra hitch for another bike. It's a bit of a pain to switch it from bike to bike because you have to remove the seat to do it.

I will follow up with the some of the same info as the first review on this item. My daughter (almost 4 yrs old) HATED this at first, but after the first full ride around a block or two - she LOVES it ! Of course, its a little akward at first, but as long as your child stays somewhat stable its a nice ride. My trailer bar also came scratched up pretty well, but did not look like it was used, just poor packing of the parts by Schwinn (made in china, if you werent sure). For $100 bucks, its worth it and I am hoping it gets my lil gal closer to learning to ride her own bike without training wheels. I would tell my friends to buy this item.

Verified Purchase
After reading the reviews online I was a little hesitant to purchase the Hitchhiker but took a gamble due to the price. It did have it's issues. The pedals they sent were the wrong size and they had to mail me the correct ones. The gear on the rear wheel wasn't quite tight and it made a clunking sound occasionally. This was easily fixed by removing the back wheel and hand tightening the gear. The hitch seems solid to me but it did take a little of my own engineering to attach it to my wife's older bike. Her seat post was smaller than all of the adapters included and I had to create my own shim to let it attach solidly. I've heard of some being damaged or scratched but mine seemed to be in good condition when it arrived. I will admit that the customer service is great. With both issues there was no arguing and immediately sent replacement parts and/or told me what to try to fix the problem. I did not have the bearing problem that I heard of but I feel confident that they would take care of it should it happen. Is it a perfect product? No. Is it worth half the price of comparable products with a little wrench turning? Absolutely.
