3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, but you get what you pay for, May 3, 2007
This review is from: InStep Quick N EZ Bicycle Trailer (Sports)
I was considering a nicer trailer, but in the end, I decided to go the cheaper route and give this one a shot, figuring if we got enough use out of it, I could sell it and upgrade. Well, I think we're going to get some use out of it, but I dont know if it will last long enough to resell.

The first trailer I bought had some issues, one of the wheels didn't turn well, and the very first time I went to fold it up after about a week's use, a screw holding the crossbar along the top of the canopy pulled out of it's plastic holder and broke, I had to return the trailer. The second on I got has held up ok so far, but I'm being very cautious when I fold it. That appears to be quite a weak point in the design.

The straps that hold the child in are somewhat adjustable, but they cut into my son's neck a bit. My biggest complaint is that you can't adjust the length of the bottom of the harness. The seat is ok, but not nearly as comfortable as my son would like. It's decent, but on a long trip I think he would get a little antsy.

The wheels on this trailer are pretty small and that translates into a pretty bumpy ride. The seat and the floor are both made of the canvas material, which causes some sagging and I don't think it's going to wear very well.

The trailer weighs almost 30 pounds, on a flat surface it isn't a problem pulling it, but going up hill, it's not the easiest thing.

Overall this is a decent trailer, for the money, it's not bad at all, just be prepared to deal with no frills design or materials and a rougher ride compared to the trailers with bigger wheels and more comfortable seats.
