I bought this last year when my daughter was 4. She was used to riding her little 12" bike with training wheels- and was too scared to get on the bike more than a couple times. I think, in retrospect, that it was my fault, as the bike I was borrowing was too big for me and I didn't feel secure, so how could she.

But now, one year later, she is 5 and I have an awesome bike, we went out yesterday with the tandem (what i like to call it) and had a blast! She can ride her own bike without training wheels now, so it's not about teaching her anything in particular- it's more about having a shared/team experience together outdoors.

I wish I had spent the extra money on the bike with the gears, as I could use the extra force of her helping to push through on hills and grassy terrain. So, if you think you will want to ride it with your child for a few years, consider that. As it is, her pedaling doesn't give me much help.

Aside from that, it is very easy to attach to and from your bike, it is foldable, it is sturdy and lightweight. Just make sure you have about 1 1/2" room under your seat for the attachment device.

Oh, and I recommend getting a little bell and a water bottle holder to attach to it. Hope this helps;-)

Overall we are very happy with it however here are two things you should know before purchasing.

1. This trail a bike (the compact one for smaller children) needs to be attached to a bicycle with a minimum 26" tire (which was stated in the manual but not on the box). That way when making turns the childs pedal does not hit the ground. Unfortunately my husband's mountain bike has 24" tires but it works on mine. Still we orginally planned to have it on his bicycle.

2. Within the first 10 minutes of riding, the back wheel locked up. We are fairly handy so after some inspection, we noticed the freewheel had loosened all the way up and was rubbing against the metal frame. We were able to fix it on our own by spinning along the thread til it was back on then really tightened it down. So make sure you don't go too far from home on your first ride.

On a great note, my son started using this a couple of weeks before he turned three. We bought the extra back with a seatbelt (unfortunately not a five point harness but seems to work great anyways) and pedal blocks. Now we are able to ride our bicycles for several mile rides and my son is happy to be riding a big boy bicycle. I love knowing he is attached to my path of travel!

Great bike. My 7yo and 3.5 yo love riding bikes, but the 7yo is frustrated at the 3.5yo snails pace on her 12" wheel bike (with training wheels), and she can't ride as long as he wants to.

I bought the compact folder because I had read that most people who had the "original" folder had to use pedal blocks to make their 3yo fit. This bike fits my girl with no problems, but it is obvious the full size version would have been about an 1" too tall.

My 3yo loves it. It has minimal sway to it, and after a couple of trips up and down the block, she was ready for some long distance.

The problem is that my 7yo loves to ride it to, and doesn't want to let the 3yo on. It fits him to, and we managed a 7 mile ride today. Maybe a tandem bike is next on the shopping list.

The bike had a large dent on the bottom tube right out of the box. While the dent won't affect the function of the bike, it is disappointing and makes me wonder if we received used merchandise.

I bought the compact trail-a-bike for my 3 y/o son who is 38" tall with a 15 1/2" inseam. His feet barely touch the pedals (flat footed) in the lowest position. Should be OK once we add some mini-clips to the pedals.

The 20" tire that comes with the bike has an extremely aggressive tread pattern like a full on mountain bike tire. Since the owner's manual states that the bike should only be ridden on paved or smooth gravel trails, I don't know why they include a tire with so much tread/ unneccessary rolling resistance. Isn't it enough that I'm towing a 28 lb bike + a 35 lb kid? A tire with a smoother/faster tread pattern would make more sense.

After reading all the reviews on Amazon.com about the various trail-a-bikes offered, we chose the Adams Compact Folder for our 4-year-old granddaughter. It is exactly what we hoped it would be. She is on the petite side and this bike trailer fits her perfectly! She loves it ... and so do we. Hook-up was flawless and there are no problems with the performance of the bike. The price on Amazon was another selling point; I had researched other websites selling the same product and Amazon had it for the lowest price.

This is a really great bike. We were trying to decide between a trail-a-bike or a cart for our 4-year-old. We bought this, and have not been dissapointed. It was easy to install, and our daughter has no problem riding it whatsoever. There is minimal vibration to my bike, so it is easy to control. I would recommend this bike!
