The Weehoo iGo takes the standard trail-a-bike a step further with its recumbent design, which gives your child a comfortable seat to relax in while she or he happily contributes to the cycling effort. The adjustable seat position makes it easy to grow with the Weehoo iGo; and the quick-release seat post connection makes separating the trailer from the bike a snap.
The first few rides were a bit of an adjustment, but there were shrieks of joy by the third time. The trailer sits closer to the ground, making it feel more like a part of your bike and enhancing the smoothness of the ride.
At 35 pounds (16 kilograms), the Weehoo is heavier than other trail-a-bikes, but the quality of the design and the numerous features more than compensate for the added weight. You get great storage space, foot straps, a secure seatbelt system, a fully enclosed drivetrain and usability for ages three to nine.
Overall, the Weehoo iGo is a pleasant experience, which has allowed my daughter, who can ride a two-wheeler, to go on longer rides, pedal as much as she feels like and feel safe and comfortable.
