About this deal

Safe and stable: The two-point suspension at hub height offers you safety, riding comfort and stability, since no levers act as with conventional fixations on the seat tube. This can range from slightly annoying to quite stressful if you’re trying to navigate on a busy street or when passing other cyclists on a single path. If you prefer to remove the FollowMe Tandem from your bike, it easily pops off the mounting system you installed on your rear axle. It allows you to attach or detach your child’s bicycle in less than 30 seconds, deploying or retracting itself behind your bicycle.

However, give yourself a couple of hours to ensure everything is spot on and you will reap the rewards because the end result is extremely satisfying.Niggles aside, they do the job and let us attempt longer rides knowing that if the kids get tired, they can have a tow. Otherwise you really need to flick through all of the instruction manual to familiarise yourself with the names of parts and their location, and not just jump in at the ‘attaching and detaching en route’ section. However, your ground clearance is very low due to the nature of the FollowMe and the smaller size of your kid’s bike!

As well as attaching a new child’s bike to the FollowMe Tandem, I’ve also attached it to my Gazelle Heavy Duty NL, so I’m able to tow our youngest instead of my other half.Even over slightly rougher terrain I was confident to ride much faster than I would with the tagalong. The other employees, when I gave the name of the one who was supposedly helping me, clucked in sympathy but didn't offer to give me any assistance themselves. Attaching and detaching the coupling was a bit tricky for me at first, and in the first month I tipped my bicycle twice while attaching, but with practice it is now effortless.

As part of the test we also tried a Blackburn rack, that is pretty much industry standard, and found that although tight, it did fit. Finally, the coupling barely fits on my daughter's 20" bicycle -- her tire is too low to the ground and drags in 4 places on our 1-mile ride to daycare. Fahre mit meinem 3,5 Jahre alten Sohn jetzt Touren > 1 Stunde ohne Probleme, dafür mit jeder Menge Spaß. First, there is the axle adapter that is needed to connect the frame two the rear axle of your bike. They told me that the coupling is compatible with disc brakes, but some disc brakes require extra hardware.For days cycling without children, the FollowMe can be removed completely from the adult's bike within seconds. Because it attaches to the adult bike on two points and to the child’s bike on three points, it’s much more stable than the Trail-Gator and there’s none of the leaning to one side. When we reach a forest, for example, where there is no traffic present, I can simply detach him in a matter of seconds and he can then safely ride by himself! My wife and I are planning a 5-month tour where each of us will be pulling something: One will pull the followme+child’s bike and the other will pull a child trailer. With the Follow Me Tandem Coupling Complete Set, you have the possibility of both safely towing your child through road traffic, or letting it cycle individually away from dangerous traffic.
