I purchased this trailer to use as a stroller for 2-5 mile walks and short 2-5 mile rides at times when I want to exercise but my 5 and 6 year old may not be up to it, they get lots of other exercise. I was worried about finding a trailer that would accommodate them, they are 47 lbs each and about 46" tall. I am very satisfied with how they fit into this trailer. The kids are pretty comfy, not too squished and really enjoy riding in it. It was very easy to assemble, seems sturdy enough and has plenty of storage. I was surprised at how lightweight it feels as a stroller and as a bike trailer, although any hint of an incline changes our leisurely rides into quite a workout for me, but I am new to biking and hope this changes as I get more fit. I would recommend this item.

I have only had this for a few weeks, but I take my five year old and two year old in it to daycare in it, about a mile and a half each way and it is great.
You can tell the quality is good, it is roomy for my kids and there is plenty of room in the back for our stuff. One day we even fit 70 dollars worth of groceries in the back without a problem.
It folds up in less than 1 minute, but I rarely need to fold it because it fits through my doorway and the elevator in my apartment building!
I only have two complaints thus far.. the biggie is the floor is just fabric. It would be so easy to make it sturdy like the seat is, and it would be more comfortable for the kids.
I also wish there was a way to attach the red blinky lights on the back just to make it a bit more visible.
I would say this bicycle trailer compares to other more expensive brands.
I didn't anticipate using it as a jogging stroller, but actually did one day last week when we have 5 inches of snow on the ground and I didn't want to bike it.. it worked great as well.

::::::::::::::::UPDATE!::::::::::::::::::::::::
This thing is rugged! I use it as a jogging stroller more than a bike, just because it is a hassle for me to take this thing down the elevator and then go back for my bike. I still take my kids to daycare in it everyday- usually the five year old is not IN it, but rides his scooter. I love the rain cover! When it rains, I can put the big boy's scooter in the back and both kids are cozy and comfy with the plastic cover. We were out in a massive monsoon like rain one day, the kids didn't get a drop on them but mommy was sure soaked!
For the price I paid, this is better than a normal jogging stroller because it keeps the kids completely dry in bad weather.

I will say that when I was planning on buying a bike trailer for my kids, people told me I wouldn't be able to feel them behind me while riding- completely false. This isn't the bike trailers fault, but my kids are 42 pounds and 31 pounds and that adds up! Even small hills are really hard to climb when pulling two kids so I am considering getting a baby seat for my bike and letting the big boy ride his bike alongside us.

The trailer was fairly easy to put together and attach to the bike. I was disappointed to realize that the handlebars and stroller wheel have to be carried separately when using the trailer. I thought they attached then folded out of the way but they don't. The harness system did take a few tries to get adjusted so it would hold my 19 month old son somewhat comfortably. It helps to tighten the front straps under the sling seat but not tighten the back strap as much. The shoulder straps sit kind of high on my son's neck near his ears but not to the point that it seems to bother him. There is no head recess to allow room for my son's helmet when biking. The inside pockets/drink holders are a nice feature for older children. The trailer is easy to pull when I am biking - the extra weight is barely noticeable especially on flat surfaces. I also enjoy inline skating but don't recommend this model for that or jogging. The stroller wheel does not roll very smoothly or as fast as I would like and the assemble rattles a lot when going a good pace. I had to keep lifting the wheel up to enjoy the outing. (I did order the Mark III for skating and it rolls smoothly in the stroller mode but I was disappointed with the quality for the higher price.) The trailblazer is a good trailer for the price if you don't plan to use the stroller feature very often.

- Attaches well, spring loaded clamp keeps trailer upright if the bicyclist in the front wrecks or falls over. I was riding up a hill and shifted, throwing the chain. I fell over, but my kids were fine the trailer because of the clamp design.

- Quick to set up and disassembles for transport: Wheels come off and the trailer folds to fit easily in our SUV within 5 minutes, after shaking out cookie crumbs, half eaten french fries / chicken nuggets.

- This will fit a 5yo and a 2yo child with room to spare for another 5lbs of water bottles and bag lunches for 2 adults and 2 children.

The only thing which could be improved by this trailer is if it had a motor to help me pull 60lbs of screaming children up hills.

We got this as a gift and were super excited to try it out. I decided I should be the one to have the trailer attached to my bike so I was used to it when I took our son alone. I could not believe how light the trailer was even with my almost 2 year old son inside. It was very easy to put together and attach to the bike. I wish the pictures on th instructions would have been a bit clearer. Our son liked the bike trip so much he fell asleep. It took bumps much better than I expected and moved easily. I was so excited that this trailer works as well as it does.

I recently purchased the Schwinn Trailblazer Double as a 2nd trailer to keep at my parents' house. We also own a Chariot double. For the price,the Schwinn gets the job done.

Positives - it folds VERY flat and compactly and is easy to fold (even while holding a squirming 11 month old), it is light, good ventilation, snack pockets, nice storage bin, handle bar can be set for different height parent, snap cover is easy to put on/take off, the front "arm" folds in for a very small "folded footprint"

Negatives - no shocks so is a bumpy ride, the front wheel is not very sturdy (when I ran with it, I tilted the stroller so the wheel was off the ground), small sling-style seat so the kids sit very close together, straps are not very adjustable and can be difficult to clip on/off, cannot be fitted with an infant sling, no sun shade

All-in-all, a great stroller. I would consider this as our only trailer if we didn't already have a Chariot.

This trailer is GREAT! We actually bought it for our senior-age dog who has arthritis in his back. He's almost 100lbs. & he fits fine! We had to do a few modifications...but the trailer is so convenient. It folds up to the size of a folded-up lawn chair & has a pocket that the wheels slide into. It also seems to have a universal-fit to all bikes. It's easy to manuever and very stable!

I bought this about a year ago. My son and I go all over Chapel Hill with it. He loves it, and so do I. It's a great way for me to spend time with my son while running errands and getting exercise. We never vacation without it. If I were designing this trailer I might tweak some things, and I've seen features on other trailers that look nice, but I think you'd be a fool to spend more on a trailer unless you were planning to do some serious single-track mountain biking with your child in tow. It's like harnessing your child into their own roll cage, which makes it WAAAY safer than a bike seat.

The only minuses I can even think of are a cheap front wheel for the stroller conversion (it's made of plastic), I had to reglue the safety flag, and it doesn't lock in the folded position. All of those can be fixed if you're willing to spend double the money on Burley or a Chariot. Save your cash. You're a parent. Put it in your child's college fund!

This is aluminium trailer.. I know now that is very important. I have seen the no name brands just rust away.

Plus
Prize!!!
very light weight an aerodynamic for cycling.
Big wheels and easy to pull.. even with 2and4 year old with cargo in back.
Does not rust.. aluminium design.
Minimal design for every weather conditions.
Takes 30 sec to fold and take of wheels.
Great for cycling and running, wiht the one wheel design i got. (no handbrake though)
Great for one kid... ok for two.

Cons
Great for one kid.. ok for two.
Head space for kids over 5 is very limited when wearing big cycling helmets and very close to net cover
Cant think of anything else... o yes... bring headphones... the "Wyeeeeeeee" sound from the kids is cute for the first one hour of the ride... then........

I researched a lot of different bicycle trailers & decided to use this one. Overall, it does what I need it to do. I have a 17-month-old & he doesn't mind being in it. It has enough room to put toys and blankets around him.
Couple of issues: there is velcro to close the flaps on both the storage in the back & in the front. I wish it were snaps. The velcro sometimes comes loose and its a little hard to make sure that the velcro is aligned so that it closes properly. The snaps would secure it & ensure that it doesn't open.
Once you convert it to a stroller, the front wheel is really wobbly and it makes a lot of noise. Its actually really annoying & it discourages me from using it as a stroller. The bracket that attaches the wheel isn't secure enough.

If you have more money to spend, I would probably go with another, but for the price range, its an OK product.
