The WeeRide Co-Pilot is just the thing for a child who wants to tag along with Mommy or Daddy, but doesn't have the legs for it. Your child can pedal to help you along, or just coast and enjoy the scenery. Either way it's fun for both of you. Sturdy construction - just like a regular 20-inch bicycle with regular handlebars, seat, and pedals. Attaches easily and quickly to almost any bicycle with a seatpost,and folds up for storage when not in use. And it even comes with a safety flag to alert motorists. The Co-Pilot is great for the whole family, nothing says togetherness like a family bike ride.

We bought the pink one for our 3.5 yr old daughter. She's 38" tall and a size 4T. She can NOT touch the pedals even with the seat at it's lowest possible point. I bought a 2x3 and cut 4 blocks to fit just inside the lip of the pedal, then zip tied them on either side. She can now reach the pedals at the lowest point by either putting her foot on the flat block, or having the pedal on it's side. I didn't bother with the pedal extenders, since a 2x3 stud is only $1.50. She still has to do a bit of climbing to get on, but we rode about 2 miles and she had no problem staying on. A big pro is that when you have to pedal uphill there is no more pull back from the child shifting in the trailer, since they are holding onto the bars now.
The green one was purchased for our 5 year old. He is a non-verbal child with autism and additional physical disabilities. Developmentally he is about a 1 year old. He's 42" tall and a size 6 clothing. He can reach the pedals without the blocks but does not make any effort to pedal (can not ride a tricycle.) Since we can't trust him to stay on the bike we also bought the seat back for the trail-a-ride bike and looped a crotch strap around the belt and seat. It's quite a bit more challenging to stabilize a child who is not cooperative but it's not impossible and after he gets going he doesn't move around as much. This is soooo much better than a baby trailer and it's nice to see him participating like a big boy! Special needs equipment is so unbelievably expensive so it's always great when you can find stuff like this that can double for it.
The main con for me is that I had to REALLY tighten my bike seat in order to stop it from turning when we'd turn. It was pretty annoying until I got it tight enough, now it's minimal but enough to bug me. Also, my daughter won't pedal on it, I guess since she's already moving she doesn't bother. She's a pretty strong rider on her own little bike, so she can, she just won't. It's still not too hard to pull with either kid not helping.
In summary, I'd buy again for a child of normal height 3+ if you're welling to make adjustments and 4+ if you want them to be closer to touching the pedals on their own. My guess by my own kid's heights is that to really ride this, 40" is the absolute minimum.
We've had this for a few months now so I wanted to update.
I've gotten used to the turning and my seat doesn't move too much now that my husband tightened it even more. So I bumped it from 4 to 5 stars. That was the one really bothersome thing. I promise it can be fixed if you have an iron man grip! :)
My daughter pedals like crazy now and really helps out. She LOVES this bike. She's 39" now and needs the pedal blocks, maybe 2-3" more and I'll take them off.
My 5 year old special needs son is doing better too! Took the crotch strap off and he's holding on tight. I think that next year he will try it without the seat back. He lacks the coordination to pedal fast enough to contribute but he is trying. Really if I could only buy this for one of them, I'd buy it for him! It's wonderful to hear him squealing and laughing as we buzz down the road. A note about further modifications for him, we took off the handlebars and reversed them. It lets him sit up a little more. He's plenty tall enough at 44" to pedal with ease, even with the reflector on the seat post and the seat back.
Anyway, if you're in doubt, buy it. We've had a great summer riding!
So we've had these for a few years now. Still impressed. They look great even though they live in a storage shed. Here's the breakdown of where the kids are now.
Little girl is 5 now and can ride a bike all by herself. Learning was a breeze, I really think this helped. We still use our weeride for longer treks. I had to replace the tire tube in hers, but we live in NJ and these are in a shed during freezing temps. No more blocks on the pedals. She's a size 6/XS and 48" tall. It's funny looking at this old picture! Boy do they grow fast.
Little boy is nearly 7, yikes! He loves his weeride, we still use the seat back but that's all the adjustment he needs now and it's mostly since we don't trust him. No peddling yet, but he's a million times more verbal when we ride! He loves squealing at cars going by and making all sorts of crazy noises. It's pretty funny. His tube is still original.
Both flags are lost and broken. Can't blame the weeride though, kids liked stealing them for games.
Standing by my review, 5 star product. Buy it and enjoy it as long as we have!
Despite the apparent inability of some purchasers to correctly install the trailer, it's really quite simple. Four bolts hold a mounting bracket to the seat post. Make sure those four bolts are nice and tight. Also make sure the seat post is tight. Then just slide the trailer into the mount and install one quick release (cam action like bike wheel skewers) bolt. The 4 bolt mounting bracket stays with the bike and the single quick release bolt can be removed to unhook the trailer. The parts are well made and while they may seem heavy compared to a lightweight bike, they are very solid.
My daughter is 6 years old and ~50 pounds. She's not proficient yet with a 2 wheeler without training wheels. However she really enjoys riding this trailer. I can feel it when she wobbles, but I'll tell her to focus on balancing and looking forward and immediately feel the wobble stop. I suspect she's going to end up learning bike balance from riding on the back of this trailer. We had done a few 15 minute rides and then last weekend went out for 10 miles. This thing's a winner. I'm so glad I bought it and would highly recommend it to anyone considering a ride along trailer.
