Description

Reports from the three (nearly four) year old are that it fells very good, not bumpy and not too fast. I noticed once how it got loose (luckily early enough before an accident could happen) and it certainly scared the hell out of me. So, I bought a one-foot nylon cord and a plastic clip from REI, and these have given me a year of faithful service. This happened to me when I was carrying my son in his bike seat to the emergency room for a head wound!

The instruction booklet has nice imagery that certainly helps, although there are a few steps that you’ll kind of have to figure out on your own. 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.Thankfully Chris was on hand to demonstrate how to hook the child’s bike to the FollowMe, which wasn’t as complicated as the instructions made out.

If it is possible to leave the hitch on, would you know if we’d need to get the longer adult’s bike axle they offer (150-175 mm)? Leider passt unser Anhänger (Chariot Corsaire) nicht mit angebauter Kupplung dran, da dann das FollowMe an den Anhänger schlägt. Today I planned to move the fittings for it to my daughter's new bike and I cannot see how to remove the downtube clamp. I was curious as to whether the FollowMe tandem would get in the way, but it’s a doddle to hook up and is reasonably compact once you get used to the overhang at the rear.

I have seen people riding with tow bars where the parent’s bike would tilt to the left and the kid’s bike tilt to the right at the same time! I have to give them credit for being the only importer of the FollowMe Tandem Coupling into the US (if you know of another one, please let everyone know!

If you’re going to the trouble of towing your child on their own bike (vs a “half” tag along bike), it better be easy to allow them to ride solo, or hook them up for that “just in case” scenario. With our bikes attached we have the ability to travel further, and faster, than he can manage on his own bike. Including : FollowMe Tandem, Fitting kit for the child's bicycle, QR skewer, std/ QR skewer, Std, Hook-up strap. No matter how often I tweaked the position of the receiver on the bike, I wasn’t able to correct it for more than a few hours.If you have another pair of hands it is much easier as one person can hold the adult bike, while the other wheels the child’s bike into position. It’s a delight, and I am incredibly happy that I purchased it back in 2019 and didn’t fall for some crappy tow bar alternative! I can ride safely on busy roads with bike attached, and it’s v easy and quick to take the bike off when we reach school, or the park… it’s also very quick to take off the whole followme if I don’t need it for a journey.
