Offering easy installation, the Springer clamp can be attached to the frame or the seat stem of the bike. The Springer arm is secured to the clamp with a pull pin. The device has a heavy-duty steel spring, situated low on the arm to absorb up to 90% of the force of a dog's unexpected tugs. And that allows bike riders to keep their balance, while protecting their dogs from traffic, pedals, and wheels.FAQs Do I need to train my dog to work with the Springer? No, most dogs adapt to the Springer immediately. However, if your dog is not well conditioned, gradually increase your riding time over the first several weeks. What surfaces should I ride on? Ideally, you would ride on dirt roads, forest pathways, and other soft surfaces. Or, if you have paved bike paths with grassy shoulders available, you can ride on the hard surface, with your dog running beside you on the grassy area. If you do cycle on paved roads, just be cautious about the speed you ride, to protect your dog's paws. If my dog veers off in a different direction, will I need to adjust the Springer while I'm riding? No, with Springer, you can keep both hands on the handlebars at all times. The Springer keeps your dog gently, but securely, by your side, protecting him from pedals and wheels. If he does run around a tree or fire hydrant, the patented safety release will release your dog instantly, keeping you and your pet safe. Will the Springer work on my mountain bike? The Springer now works on most regular, touring, and mountain bikes. Should your bike frame have a teardrop-shaped down tube, you can now attach the clamp to the seat stem and use the adaptor on the clamp to lower the Springer arm, allowing you to create a better fit based on the size of your dog.

Second, Instruction 1 for how many and which plastic tubular gasket inserts to put around the main tube or seat post before you attach the clamp over them, suffered badly in the various translations. In English, they give you three post diameters: 36mm - use two blue inserts (wrong!); 32mm - use blue insert (wrong!); 28mm - use white and blue (this one is right). My seat post is 26mm in diameter... None of the other instructions (Norwegian, German, Spanish, French and Dutch) gives the correct number and type of inserts to be used for all four diameters shown in the illustration, so follow the illustration! 36mm - 1 blue; 32mm - 2 blue; 28mm - white and blue; 25mm - red, white and blue. For my 26mm post I used red, white and blue, and the clamp fits snugly; perfect!
Third and last, when you screw the spring onto the S-tube, make sure you don't screw it on too far because it's impossible to unscrew it even a hair. Instruction 2, as well as the illustration, tells you the proper position of the eye at the top of the spring after it's screwed on.
Now for the rave! We recently got a 70-pound, 1-year-old, female Lab mix from a shelter - high energy and mostly untrained. I have arthritis in both knees, so walking her for all the exercise she needs is out of the question, and the dog park is hit or miss when it comes to dogs "playing nicely" together. Enter the bicycle dog exerciser (drum roll please)! Judging by the pictures, I thought this Springer exerciser looked kind of weird compared to other brands that don't have such a deep bend in them. Some don't have a bend at all and that seemed much more straightforward to me. Fortunately I sought the opinion of my daughter, who sees and talks with bicyclists who ride with their dogs in the park where she runs in the morning. She immediately pointed at the Springer and said that was the one she would recommend. We looked at Springer videos and reviews and in no time I was convinced. The Springer takes most of the dog's weight in the event the dog lurches sideways, plus it has a safety release, so it is highly unlikely that even a big dog could upset the rider.
I have now taken the dog for a bike run three times. The first time I first walked between the dog and the bike, then walked with the bike between the dog and me, and finally rode the bike with a leash in my hand that was attached to the dog's martingale collar, in addition to the Springer being attached to her harness. The second time I dispensed with the walking and just did the riding, still with the leash on her collar and the Springer on her harness. The leash helped whenever we passed someone walking a dog, a big temptation for her to trot over for a happy greeting session. I had to pull her along by the leash a few times on the first ride and once on the second ride. On the third ride I no longer used the leash and I'm glad to report that she happily trotted along with only the Springer attached to her harness!
I am ecstatic over this product!
All of my tabs are broken now and makes the Spinger Jogger useless now, unless i want to chance of getting injured and use it without the tabs. i would give it 5 stars if the tabs are ready available otherwise 2.5-3 stars.
One word of caution, though. I am a female who wears a size 8 shoe. I clamped the bracket as high on the bike bar as I could and my heel just barely clears the device when it rotates around on the pedal. This may just be an issue with certain bikes. Also, my foot will occasionally graze the outside bar when I pedal (doesn't hurt though). I think I must have a habit of placing my foot on the outside portion of the pedal. In any event, I have no regrets and am very pleased with this product.
