Product Description

Amazon.com

Train a child how to ride a bike without dealing with training wheels with the WeeRide Co-Pilot bike trailer. The Co-Pilot--which attaches quickly and easily to almost any bicycle with a seat post--is just like a regular bike, with handlebars, a seat, and pedals for your youngster.


The Co-Pilot's quick-release system detaches easily from your bike.
However, you have control of the actual ride, including speed, balancing, braking, and steering, while your child tags along. It's a great way to teach basic biking skills and safety without giving up control before he or she is ready. Your son or daughter and pedal to help you along or just coast and enjoy the scenery.

The Co-Pilot is equipped with a true quick-release system for quick detachment from the adult bike, along with adjustable handlebars that accommodate children of different heights. In addition, the seat is more comfortable and better built than typical bike trailer seats, so your child will want to keep riding throughout the day. And once you arrive at your destination, the arms fold up easily for compact storage. Other features include an attractive black and silver color scheme, a safety flag and handlebar pad, and a 20-inch wheel size. The Co-Pilot--which holds up to 75 pounds--weighs 24 pounds by itself and is recommended for ages 4 to 9.

We love this bike, my daughters and I have great fun riding.
Deborah Larios
The trailer-bike leans a little bit when you make a tight turn (same was true for the REI trailer-bike) and our son is pretty used to it.
Theron
The assembly was very easy, and attachment to my bike was a snap.

I agree with the other reviewers regarding the excellent build quality of this "trailer bike." I was very skeptical about the quality, given the unbelievable price (compare to Trek etc.), but decided to give it a shot anyway.

Setup was pretty easy. The only problem was that the seatpost wouldn't go all the way into the frame, which was a must in order for my 4.5 yr old to ride. I needed to jam a scrap metal pipe into the frame's seat tube a couple times in order to knock loose some chunks of metal flashing that were preventing the seatpost from going all the way in. Once that was done though, everything was great. As for attaching to the lead bike, there is a "hitch receiver" that bolts onto the seatpost of the lead bike. The lead bike needs 2 inches of exposed seatpost in order to attach the hitch receiver. The WeeRide attaches to the hitch receiver exactly as would an automobile trailer hitch, except that the WeeRide comes with a quick release bolt for easy attachment/detachment to/from the lead bike. The hinge for folding the WeeRide is also secured by a quick release bolt. Those two quick releases are all you need to mess with when you want to go for a ride. Very simple!

The bike is *almost* too big for my 4.5 yr old daughter to ride. She was freaked out at first because, even with the seat all the way down, she can't touch the ground with her feet. And the hinged coupling between the seatpost "hitch" and the WeeRide frame has a little play in it, so it felt a bit wobbly to my daughter at first. But once she got used to the idea that she's firmly attached to Dad's bike, and Dad's bike doesn't tip over :) , she started to enjoy herself.

Our experience with the WeeRide co-pilot was very disappointing. Our son was dumped off the bike once, and we found that a critical bolt almost came completely loose which could have caused serious injury during a ride. This review is long but before you buy this product I suggest you read the details of our experience! Note: our four-year old _loves_ riding on a trailer-bike, so I agree with all of the other reviews that trailer-bikes are a great, great thing for 4-5 year-olds. However, if our experience is representative I'd stay away from the co-pilot!

We bought a WeeRide co-pilot trailer-bike because REI recalled the one they make, called the Novara Afterburner, which we were very happy with. We ride our bikes a lot and although REI said they would send a fix for the Afterburner in a month or two, we couldn't wait that long. I only have experience with these two trailer bikes but will offer a comparison of the two.

Assembling the co-pilot once it arrived wasn't too bad. I liked the REI trailer-bike because we could try it out before we bought it, and then it came already assembled -- but certainly ordering the co-pilot online has its conveniences too. The first disappointment was that the co-pilot has a piece that has to be semi-permanently attached to the parent's bike. The REI trailer-bike has a quick-release mechanism that makes it easy to move the trailer-bike from one bike to another. Moving the co-pilot takes 5-10 minutes and an allen wrench.

On the second time we used the co-pilot, our four-year old was dumped off the bike. My wife was walking her bike while our son rode the trailer-bike, and she made a somewhat tight turn to get the bike turned around.

The other reviewer should know that you have to loosen the sway bar that connects to the hitch clamp, 1 1/2 turns, to allow the bike to turn with the main, similar to a hitch on a car. If this bar remains rigid, then the seat post clamp will definitely turn when you turn. I believe the hitch bar and sway bar were tightened for transit from the factory.

For a review, this bike is probably the best for piece of mind of the parent when your 5 year old wants to ride. At least you do not have to run to catch the child when they are going close to the road on an individual bike.

Since you control the speed and direction, my 5 year old is thrilled to enjoy the ride. They can pedal or just coast. Also, they learn good bike safety rules since they watch the parent observe traffic and street crossings.

Of course, they will want their own bike in a few years, but for now, my daughter is content on being in the passenger seat.

Since the trailer can be disconnected by a turn pin connection, it can easily be taken off your bike so you can enjoy your own quiet ride. But the times we have used it, there was no worries of watching out where the child was riding because they are right in back of you, and the ride is very enjoyable and quiet.

The flag is an excellent idea and complements the fact that a child is on board.

Verified Purchase
Before I bought this item, I read all the reviews. I found all good reviews except one.
I ignored the bad one with the wishful thinking that the customer got a bad piece.
I faced exactly the same problem that the customer mentioned. I checked
the design carefully, I found that there is nothing wrong with the piece. It is a
fundamental design problem. There are two clamps, one attach to the primary bike seat rod,
and another on the rod that attach to the first. Both clamps can not be tightened
firmly to prevent it from rotation. Due to the possibility of simultaneous rotations of these
clamps, the trailer can incline to a large extent. With a child riding on the trailer,
it can trip over easily. This problem may not show up in first one or two rides. But with
a few more rides, the friction in the clamps goes away, and they start rotating more
freely. In my opinion, this trailer should be recalled, as it is too dangerous to be on the road.
