WeeHoo i-Go Child Trailer Review

Gear Pro Reviews

I first saw the WeeHoo i-Go bike trailer in August this year at the Rocky Mountain Bike Show, and I was very intrigued by the design. It’s a child bike trailer in which the occupant sits in a recumbent position, and the child (aka the copilot) can pedal, assisting the driver, or just sit, relax and enjoy the views.

The i-Go is one of the new breeds of kid bicycle trailers called a pedal trailer, and is different than the typical two wheel buggy trailers. I have seen the other designs of a pedal trailer in which the child sits in a normal upright position, with the handle bars attached to the pull bar, and the drivetrain in basically the same layout.

The trailer easily attaches to any bike on its seatpost, using an innovative clamp system that allows the trailer to rotate using the seatpost as its pivot point.

The trailer has many features, the foremost being a 3 point safety harness. In fact, the trailer is full of safety features, such as a fully enclosed drivetrain (chain and chainrings), foot straps for the pedals, and rear wheel coverage.

The child sits in the recumbent chair, and it has hand grips, so the child has something to hold onto for a secure feeling, or to just get better leverage while pedaling. The seat is also padded, so it is nice and comfy for a long ride.

WeeHoo Video Overview:

The seat can move back and forth on the main bottom rail, to accommodate multiple size heights and leg lengths. To alter the seat position (when the child isn’t in the seat), you just pop open the quick release lever located under the seat. You then give the QR a couple of spins to loosen it, until the lower clamp plate flops down slightly. You then slide the seat fore and aft aligning the plate and main rail notches (12 available positions), sandwich the plate back together and pop the QR bolt into the notch and tighten the whole thing up. I did find it a bit frustrating using the system on occasion, since the lower plate tended to fall off when it flopped back to far if you didn’t hold it in position.

  • Fatboy Joe says:

    Nice, I like it! Perfect for my kids who would want to go with me to the trails. Atleast they also get a work-out, LOL

  • Karli says:

    We sell the Weehoo at Full Cycle in both Ft Collins and Boulder. We have had amazing response to the design. I have towed the trailer with out a child and was surprised how balanced it felt. We have one in the Boulder store that is a demo. Feel free to stop in a try it out. 1795 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302 303-440-1002

  • Whambat says:

    Pricey in comparison to the typical trailer bikes, but I think a little one will be more comfortable on long rides in that seat. It might be a good transition after my son’s done with the chariot.

  • Brian Mullin says:

    It fits a much larger array of kids then other bikes. My son is to short to ride a normal pedal trailer, so this works well for him. Yes it is a bit more expensive then a normal pedal trailer, but you get a lot more features (safety, build quality, comfort, better sizing range, etc).

  • BuddhaK says:

    Looks like the kid’s legs can dangle into pavement if they fall asleep back there. Is that the case?

  • DK says:

    Doesn’t look any better than a traditional pedal trailer design to me. Looks much heavier than it has to be and not liking the seat style at all. When moving the youngsters out of a trailer, it’s nice to get them onto something that’s progressing UP to their first bike. Unless their first bike is a recumbant, this design is not the answer.

    • Deb says:

      Clearly, you don’t have a special needs kid or have even thought about how this may work extremely well for those kids that aren’t perfect!

      • Deb says:

        I think that this design is SO awesome for kids with special needs!! I can’t wait to get one for my son! I saw one on the road once and have been looking for it! Thank you!!

  • pastajet says:

    BuddhaK:

    I had my daughter sit on the unit the other day, and her toes barely scrapped and she had to sort of try and push them down. Any child at near the height limitation 50+ inches shouldn’t be falling asleep anyway?

    DK:

    Actually it is not meant to get them on their first bike? You should be using a balance bike (or a bike with the pedals removed) to accomplish that.

    Yes, it’s heavier then a normal pedal trailer, but it has a lot more functionally and features than a pedal trailer. Storage space, safety features, etc.

    A normal trailer won’t allow a smaller child to go with you, and on long rides if the child gets tired, they aren’t going to have as much fun, can get cranky etc. In addition, they can have a snack when they feel like, or just veg out when they feel like it.

  • Daniel says:

    Was going to retro fit my BOB with a car seat for the kiddling. Wont have to worry about that now.

    Hope they ship to Australia.

  • Jerry says:

    Two drawbacks. Too heavy and no sun/wind protection.

  • Joe says:

    I Love my weehoo! I use it for all our trips around town. I have three kids and they all love to go on rides with me in the weehoo. My oldest and I can get that thing moving fast!!! We love it so much I am asking for a second one for my birthday so my wife and I can take the two little one out at the same time.

    Some one said something about feet scraping the ground, they have a nice large pedal with feet straps to prevent that from happening. I am very impressed with the stability, our tag a long always felt wobbly to me. With the weehoo I forget I have an attachment on the bike.

    We have a burley and I don’t think we will use it again (its on craigslist if you want it Ill cut you a deal). I can ride longer and my kids have FUN. Since we got the weehoo my youngest has shown greater interest in riding his own bike. Not to mention I am enjoying my sport with my children.

    Great product, very well thought out.

  • Stella says:

    My husband and I were on vacation in Vail Colorado. We were going to rent a trailer bike for our daughter but the guy at the shop suggested we try the weehoo. The Vail downhill run was awesome. I am glad they suggested the weehoo it was a blast. My daughter Valery wanted to go again when we were done:)
    My hubby has had his eye on the s-works tarmac sl2, we where window shopping and I was pleasantly supprised when I saw the weehoo at Jax’s in Long Beach. We might have to get one, I think it would be great for the beach trails in So Cal.

  • Hoang says:

    As a mom I am always nervous about my son falling of the giant halfwheeler we use. What a great idea to put a seat like that on a trailer. This looks much safer considering they are strapped in and comfortable. Anyone know if I could use with my Sirius Bones Rack? I have a small car with a very little trunk.
    The kids seemed so excited in the video, looks like a blast!

  • Kurt says:

    WEEHOO!!!!!!!

  • Michael says:

    It really would have been nice to see a video of it being ridden with a child in the seat.

  • pastajet says:

    Not sure I follow you Michael, there is a video on page 2?

  • Lionum says:

    Looks nice & fun, but I worry about the tongue weight on the rear bike wheel. Perhaps it was the cold weather in the video, but the rear wheel looked really low (lots of tire deformation). The “chariot” trailers typically have better weight distribution.

    That said, it looks like fun & it would be nice if the munchkin could add a little power when the going gets tough!

  • pastajet says:

    My tires were not inflated much, the bike had been sitting for a long period of time and I was to lazy to inflate them for the short video I did. Most of the weight sits on the tire of the WeeHoo and not up on the main bike.

  • Jacqui says:

    The IGo from WeeHoo has now arrived in the United Kingdom & Europe and is available to purchase via http://www.weehoo.co.uk for the public £240.00 and retailers. Perfect for safe family outings, bike hire rental shops and commuters riding with their children. Your child will love riding the IGo. Contact us for details, Jacqui & Ian, Weehoo UK Ltd.

  • Judith says:

    It looks really great!

    Does the WeeHoo fit on every bike? On the pictures I only see mountain bikes. I have a normal bicycle (Giant hybride). I want to use the WeeHoo for a vacation, so I need to be able to put Ortlieb backpacks on my bike.

    Another question, how wet does the WeeHoo get when it rains? Can you protect the seat against rain?

  • pastajet says:

    It will fit any bike that has a seatpost! There should be enough room for the backpacks and WeeHoo, but I have never actually tried to set one up that way. In regards to rain, I would think that the rider could use a umbrella?

  • Graham says:

    Can somebody answer the question of “what happens if your kid puts their feet down?” I would think it would pull their feet under. Yes, I understand that the other traditional trailers it is easy for a kid to fall off, however they are alert due to the design. With this design, I would think kids would regularly fall asleep. If that is the case their feet would fall off the pedals even with the straps and kit the ground and get sucked under!

    Can you retrofit with with a catch bar or such that would stop feet from hitting the ground.

    • gayle edmondson says:

      Their feet attach to the pedals very easily with velcro straps like a stirrup. It has a loop around the heel and a strap over the top. My grandson is 4, peddles like a maniac and sometimes I have even forgot to strap him in and he has never dragged his feet.

  • pastajet says:

    Been answered already…\I had my daughter sit on the unit the other day (7 years old, 48 inches tall), and her toes barely scrapped and she had to sort of try and push them down. Any child at near the height limitation 50+ inches shouldn’t be falling asleep anyway?\

  • Judith says:

    Thanks for your answer!

    I have another question. How does the Weehoo ride without a child in it? I have to bring my daughter to school, so on the way back the Weehoo is empty.

  • pastajet says:

    It rides about the same, albeit with a lot less weight that you have to pull around (depending on the childs weight). Not much difference with my 25+ lbs son, but my 50 lbs daughter is a workout on steep hills.

  • Paul says:

    Hi All

    THE WEEHOO HAS ARRIVED IN AUSTRALIA!!! WEEHOO is now available for purchase in the finest independent bike dealers in Australia.

  • Paul says:

    Sorry I forgot to mention:

    Weehoo is now available in Canadian independent bike shops.

  • Danielle says:

    We are looking to get a trail along bike for our daughter who is about to turn four. We have gotten tons of use out of the attached bike seat that we just can’t squeeze her into anymore, but she is famous for falling asleep on the ride. We are debating between a weehoo or an Adams trail-a-bike with a backrest. Pros of the adams: folds to fit in our car better. Pros of the weehoo: she can fall asleep on the ride. We drive a mazda protege 5 and use a rear bike rack. Has anyone tried to carry a weehoo in a similar situation? Unless the trailer folds it won’t fit inside the car.

  • Kurt says:

    I transport my weehoo on my Sirius rack that attaches to the back of my trunk. I can also fit it in the trunk of my 328i

    The one bar disconnects and it fits pretty well with bungee cords and a towel.

    Hope that helps

  • Kurt says:

    If you can transport it … TRUST ME GET THE WEEHOO.

  • Stib says:

    Not sure if it’s been answered but how does it handle off-road? Double/singletrack? Also, is there a canopy accessory available?

  • Brian Mullin says:

    No canopy. I have only had it on uber wide singletrack, and it did just fine.

  • Andrea says:

    I bought it this past weekend and LOVE it. I found it at Jax’s in Long Beach (Thanks Stella). Our daughter loves it so much.

  • canoedogs says:

    This looks like a great option for cycling families with young kids. Does anyone know if you can use it if your bike has a rack on the back for panniers, etc? Thanks.

    • Brandi says:

      We bought a Weehoo about 2 months ago. We love it. I have a rack on my road bike and it works fine. We had to add a clamp on my seat post to keep the Weehoo hitch higher than the rack because the frame of my seat post was lower than the rack. It was a simple fix that our bike shop guy did quite quickly. If the frame (where your seat post goes into your bike) is higher than your rack you shouldn’t have any problems. My husband has a rack on his bike and had no problems because his frame was higher than the rack. Does that make sense?

  • Brian Mullin says:

    You might be able to rig something up?

  • wanderer says:

    Looks like there is snow on the ground and the test rider is wearing shorts? Where is this magical place?

  • just_A_mom says:

    I just wanted to say thank you for the review you did. I am so glad I got one.

    You are most welcome, glad we could all help you out!

  • mum says:

    Looks fun.
    Wanted to know whether it would fit with a child seat on the bike. Thereby transporting 2 children…

  • pastajet says:

    Which child seat?

  • Kyle says:

    It has worked great for us. A two and four year old. We have had problems with the kick stand for the bike holding up the weight of the Weehoo and the bike. Trails gret some vibration noise from some of the plastic parts.

  • mamamia3 says:

    I love the idea of this, but don’t really want to buy 2 for two separate bicycles, as we have two little boys. I think a great idea would be to place two seats in a row, like a double seater, but one right in front of the other, maybe pedals for the front one only, that way I could take both of my kids along, rather than taking turns on who rides on the weehoo. Also, as for te comment about \what happens to my childs feet if they fall asleep?\ I think there are straps on the pedals to keep the childs feet in place on the pedals. If they do not have straps they should right? I am still thinking about getting this trailer, but it is the best idea out there so far that I have seen.

    • Gayle Edmondson says:

      They do make one with two seats in a row, but only the front child pedals. They do have straps, although I have forgotten at times and no issues. It is not wobbly, I would say opposite of wobbly. Before this had long tail bike and noticed grandson whipping around twice as much on a long tail.

  • Rev Isabelle Stone says:

    I got to demo the Weehoo today at Bicycle Village. Thanks Geoffrey! I was concerned it would feel heavy as it did at stand still but once riding it was smooth sailing. I rode over bumps and through tight spaces just to see how it tracked and it did beautifully. I currently have a Burley which has served me well but that thing bumps into everything if I am not careful. I have an active 2 year old who loves the trailer but will likely grow bored with it soon. I like the Weehoo option because we both can be active and I don’t have to sacrifice on speed. This little trailer is on my short list of biking accessories to purchase when I have the funds:-) I wish you the best getting the word out there about this gem!

  • Mike says:

    We’ve been using the trailer for a few weeks now and have no conplaints – works great and our 3 1/2 year old daughter loves riding in it.

    I live in Canada (Oakville) and it was hard to find one to see before I bought. However, after contacting the Canadian dealer listed on the Weehoo site, I found that they were just setting up a distribution deal with Racer Sportif (one in Oakville, another in Toronto). That’s where I bought mine and they were able to send one in for me to check out first.

  • BRidgett says:

    I have an almost-2 year old and a big old bulky 2-kid trailer. My 5 year old is on a trail-a-bike, and my 9 year old is obviously on her own. My car can no longer transport all our stuff, but could handle something like this. But is an almost-2 year old too young? It looks so secure. He’s almost tall enough–36″–and gets so bored in the trailer.

  • Brian Mullin says:

    Your 2 year old should be fine! I don’t think my 5 year old is that tall, and he uses it. He mostly back pedals instead of helping Dad out, but at least he is entertained!

  • Ellen says:

    We use the wee-hoo with our 2 and 4 year old. The pedal straps & 3-point safery harness keeps everyone safe and secure. The only disadvantage I’ve found is that both of our children have difficulty getting comfortable when they want to doze. So, if your children are on the small size, do not plan a ride when they will want a nap.

  • daddy says:

    Toronto – ordered from Broadway Cycle. They had it to me in 4 days! Someone on this forum mentioned Racer Sportif. I called them and had to convince them that they could order it. I asked them to order it and “Mike” said he would call back when he could but he was too busy. Hmmmm…. well, they do sell very expensive bikes and this product goes for $399 CAD. Too bad for Racer Sportif, great job Broadway Cycle!

  • andria says:

    A couple of notes after our first few weeks with our i-go:

    It’s mostly fantastic! My youngster loves it, I appreciate that it carries his weight low.

    I agree with some of the other folks that there is no concern with dragging toes, as long as you properly secure your child. The shoe of your youngster gets strapped in front/top/sides and is very secure and adjustable. This also means that your kiddo is working on both the push and draw of the chain… more speed for you! Another safety detail was that when tipped on it’s side, oh so gently because i was mostly there to catch it (argh! not strong enough kickstand) my little guy was totally unharmed because even his arms/shoulders were contained within the seat. Sure he could have been getting is water bottle out of the side pocket… but in most situations this is a pretty safely created design.

    It does run longer (as well as heavier) then most of the upright trail-a-bike or trailer models. In the tight spaces of the city, I’m finding a couple of spots tricky to manouver through. Mind you, with our 2kid trailer I found the width tricky, even though my length was shorter.

    It won’t fit all bikes easily. I’m little, and ride a little mountain bike 24″ wheels, and needed to jig it up a little in order to clear my wheels. And since I was doing that anyway it’s now at a height that allows for my back rack too. The super helpful folks at my bikeshop suggested a tightening clamp with a rubber spacer to sit underneath the hitch. So far, so good. I’ll report back if it doesn’t work – especially after our bike camping trip at the end of the month.

  • andria says:

    some questions for other users:

    Has any body started doing any kinds of modifications or adding their own accessories? I’d love to hear about them.

    Personally I’m thinking about some kind of rain cover for once winter comes. An umbrella would sure create lot of resistance =) . We live in the rainy Pacific Northwest, and while we have full rain gear – I can see this as being a barrier to my little guy wanting to go out.

    I can also see some benefit in having a secondary safety latch welded on near the top in case the hitch ever fails. Maybe I’m silly, but my trailer had 3 backup safety latches, and the i-go with at top loading has a similar weight. Maybe combine this with a place to run a cable lock line thru to keep it protected in the big city.

    Any ideas about fun kids stuff for longer trips?

  • Lindsay says:

    Would there be any way to use this on a bike with an xtracycle? Ideally I’d love to have this and a peapod on my bike, but I’m not sure if that can be done realistically. We’re going on a long bike trip with two kids next summer (18 months and almost 4 next year), and we’re trying to plan the best set up for them.

  • Brian Mullin says:

    Lindsay, I would call WeeHoo 866-297-6049 and ask them!

  • Beo Charette says:

    Is there any way to hook two of these in line?
    Has anyone ever tried such a thing?

  • S Kleinhans says:

    My 6 year old has cancer and was just diagnosed when he was learning to ride a two wheeler in April. With leukemia, his bone marrow is pretty fragile and he can’t be around his friends as he has a low immune system. We just got the Wee Hoo last week and he is THRILLED! Its a comfy way to get him some exercise and if his legs are tired, he can just rest. Thank you for such an incredible product and for enabling our family to all go biking together again! YAHOO WEE HOO!

  • Brian Mullin says:

    You are most welcome, and I am so glad he likes going for rides in it.

  • Katja says:

    Thanks to your reviews, comments and video we got on the case to find a Weehoo in England. The Cycle Trailer Centre in Nottingham (http://www.cycletrailercentre.co.uk) have them for hire and deliver far and wide, which is brilliant because we didn’t want to invest before having a good go with it. We’ve bought one now, of course, because we all think it’s much better than other trailer bikes. Wish us luck with assembly!

  • Leslie says:

    This trailer looks awesome!! I have a 1 year old and we are moving to Italy next spring and I am trying to operate near carless while living there. So besides walking my kid-let to day school is great, I’d like to find another way to transport too! So that being said, would a 1.5 year old be too little to carry?? She is over 30 inches tall and I don’t expect her to pedal, yet anyway, but I KNOW that there are not any stellar bike stores in my current location that I’d be able to give it a trial run…. And are there reflective devices?? (kind of a duh question, but mandated by Italian law.) thanks!!! (and what a cool thing to grow into!!)

  • Clare-Ann says:

    I’m very taken with the weehoo, however I live at the top of a series of steep hills. I am looking at this as an option for taking my 4year old to school. I know we’ll all love it going down hill. My main resevation is weight coming back up hill, especialy with the added weight of my daughter on the wee rider. All opinions and advice would be greatly appreciated as it takes an hour to walk to school (four year olds have very little legs).

    Many thanks

    Clare-Ann

  • Oxana says:

    Hi there!
    I find the idea excellent – but I can’t find a reseller in Europe! Do you know anybody, in Switzerland or France? Thanks!

  • jeff says:

    Oxana,
    If you go to weehooinc.com and go to the dealer locator, the Belgium distributor ships all over Europe at a great price.

  • jeff says:

    Clare-Ann,

    I use my weehoo with my 4 year old and as long as she is pedaling hills are not a issue at all.

  • Terri says:

    Is there a double for twins?
    Can a buggy trailer be attached behind the weehoo?

  • Brian Mullin says:

    Terri: no double as yet, and it’s not really meant to attach an additional trailer, though I have never tried it?

  • Siv says:

    I am gettting mine tomorrow..Cant wait. Hvae a 4 year old i have had with me for bike rides since she was 5 months. Due to her being to big for the trailer now i was looking for a tag along..but then i spotted this. Looks perfect!.. Just wanted to say to anyone worried about the weather. How do you stop yourself from getting wet? Yes you dress for the weather. Get a rain poncho for the kid..dont take much room in one off the side pockets. And for the one thats worried about the kids gettin wind in there face..Well get a normal trailer then. If your kids cant handel wind or rain maybe you need to stay at home?

  • Stephen says:

    The Weehoo is great! I sell them here in Houston and one of the greatest applications I have found is for kids with downs syndrome that have balance issues. This is perfect for them, I sold one to a family with a high functioning downs daughter and she loves it and they do to, because she can ride with them without fear of her losing interest as she did on the regular mountain bike style attachments. If anyone is interested we keep them in stock at all Bike Barn locations in Houston, TX.

  • Nita says:

    I have a 12 year old special needs child. She is 53 lbs and 50 inches tall. Will this continue to work for her as she gets taller? She is not able to balance on a regular trail a bike. Is this a good option for her?

  • mike says:

    Has anybody tried fitting a weehoo to a recumbent? I ride a Trice, as I have a balance disability, and love the look of the Weehoo, but not sure if it would work with my trike.
    I was thinking about a tube attached to the rack, to imitate the seat tube, or fitting the front part of a Bob trailer (which I have) instead of the towbar.
    Has anybody tried either of these? Or any comments greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    • Todd says:

      Check out the Burley tailwind rear rack. This is used with their Kazoo and piccolo trail a bikes. I am a recumbent rider as well and this looks like it may be a good solution (or at least something to try and DIY)

  • amanda says:

    i have a special needs child who loves to go on the bike rides. he is going to be 7 and is too big for the traditional trailer. i would love to have an i-go trailer. it would be great exercise for his legs. unfortunately i can not afford one. if anyone knows of one for sale used or any assistance available to get one, would you please let me know. babyribbiter@aol.com tthank you

  • Angie says:

    Hello I Got this about two weeks ago to attach to my mike insted of the typical trailor where the child just sits. my daughter will be four this month and she has cerebral palsy and was getting to big for the old trailr and she just loves this sooo much. she been trying to get me to take her on several a day and im glad that she is safe with the straps and her feet can get strapped in to the foot pedels to keep her muscles in her legs stronger to where hopefully someday she can walk

  • Annie says:

    I also have a special needs child. He is 6 and we are trying to figure out a way that our whole family can go on a bike ride including him. This looks like a good option but my husband has been out of work for a good while and this is expensive. I’ve tried to find it used with no luck. My mom brought up the question about it being low enough that gravel would hit his face. I haven’t read anything about that, though.

    Also, I wish that Weehoo would make one for older children who are disabled. My son will only be able to ride this for a couple years and then we won’t be able to ride as a family.

  • Brian Mullin says:

    The fender takes care of any thrown up gravel, and I tested that pretty well, since the local trails are covered with gravel. I would ping WeeHoo directly about making a larger one?

  • Susie says:

    I too am wondering about attaching this with a baby seat already on the bike. If I recall correctly, the traditional tag a long wouldn’t attach with our bell cocoon that is on my bike?

    • Brian Mullin says:

      It won’t work with something like the Bell Cocoon, as it needs the area around the back of the seatpost to be free, so that it’s attached arm can move as the trailers swings during maneuvering.

  • zaino says:

    how possible to get this sent to malaysia. really nice to have it. hope anybody can help me. thank guys.

  • Susie says:

    Can you suggest a baby seat that might work, besides the front ones like ibert?

  • Brian Mullin says:

    I doubt very much that any of the rear baby seats will work with trailer, as the hitch bar rises too much, and it needs to pivot off the seatpost. And even if it was possible, I also can’t imagine trying to deal the weight of a rear seat and the trailer (plus kids), and doing a balancing act to get everyone on and off?

  • Stephanie says:

    Thank you for the wonderful info and videos! I have an old cyclocross bike I want to attach this to. Will the gearing work for hills and weight? I have a typical cross set up. My daughter is three and weighs around 40 lbs. I’m just worried I won’t make it up some of the hilly parts of our bike trails. But I also can’t invest in another new bike. Thanks!

  • Stephanie says:

    Had our first ride today and it went spectacular! My 11/30 rear cassette worked great. My 3 year old daughter was laughing and yelling “Weee! My bike!!”. So fun! Thanks again for your review.

  • JJ says:

    I bought this last year to commute to daycare/work with my 4 year old. I had him in the ibert seat before, so was a bit worried he wouldn’t like being behind me. But he loved it. The only drawback is the logistics to remove the trailer from my bike to get into the bike room. Also, it is hard for me to get up the hills with it and him, but that likely is because I’m pulling roughly half my weight up very steep hills. Moderate hills shouldn’t be an issue.

  • BP says:

    Hi. I know the wheel is 20″, but what’s its width please?

  • Stuart says:

    I am doing a 2-week self-contained bike tour in Southern Denmark in July with my wife and 3-year old, averaging 30-35 miles/day. We are planning on taking our Chariot Trailer. We just received a Weehoo, and we love it. Now we have a dilemma. It would be great to take the Weehoo on this tour, however we are a bit weary of how our son would handle a cold, rainy day on the Weehoo, as opposed to in his Chariot. Does anybody know of good rain protection that works on the Weehoo – more than just good raingear for him? Is it nuts to think about bringing both, with my wife pulling the one that isn’t in use? Thanks! Stuart

      Stuart – I am not aware of any rain cover for the system. I would call them up for suggestions? Enjoy Denmark!

    Can it be attached to a folding bike? These small bikes tend to have a long bar for the seat and I’m not sure if tis is feasible. I would appreciate your comment on this. Thank you.

    I have a 7 year old daughter that has a syndrome, part of the syndrome is low muscle tone. I am looking for a bike attachment where I can pull her and she will be safe. One of my main concerns is her legs dangling if she gets tired. Trying to be active and include my daughter in the activities.

      Try the Morgan Cycle Caboose for your daughter. The pedals do have straps to keep the feet in place on the weehoo. You might get a longer life out of the Caboose being your daughter is already 7 years old.

    Stuart – did you take the weehoo to Denmark? We as well do a lot of multi day tours. But as long as my son (3 yrs) still fits in our chariot, we will continue to use it. The weehoo worries me in that there is no protection from bad weather or sun. The website has a sun shield, but it looks worthless. So touring for 4+ hrs in the weehoo will not work. Plus where/how would he read his books. I’ve seen several videos of kids sleeping in the weehoo and their heads are flopping all over. It looks like a nice solution for around town, but not touring. Has anyone done any multiday tours with it? Thank you.

      We use the weehoo for touring all the time. A family ride over 2000 miles this past summer in the weehoo from Canada to South America via the WEEHOO.
      This fall I read an article about a family that rode 1500 miles up the atlantic coast into Canada on the weehoo.
      It is the PERFECT trailer for touring and longer rides. The Chariot is not enjoyable for my kids any more, they don’t feel like they are a part of the family back in the enclosed bubble. My kids love being outside in the weehoo. Reading, ipad, eating all work just fine in the weehoo. You should give it a try.

    has anyone tried pushing the envelope a bit with a heavier child ? I have a special needs child who is already 8, but she looks very excited about trying this trailer. Just wondering if the 27kg limit is very cautious and we can push it a bit further…? thanks

    Already rented a wee hoo on holiday and my 4yr old loved it .. Just wondered if you can use it in conjunction with a full suspension MTB or do you have to use a hard tail bike? Before I buy one and have to get a new hard tail :)

    Cheers

    The weehoo works well with full suspension bikes.
