    So the obvious choice is burley? Lol

  2. ThatRandomDogPerson on June 21, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    I have been trying to look for a good low-price trailer and I found one its called the Schwinn Shuttle foldable bike trailer and it’s JUST a bike trailer with only two wheels I saw it a lot in your video it cost $99 USD at Walmart o you think its good?

  3. Catherine Bedoya on June 21, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    I plan to buy a bike trailer for my super skinny 5 year old and 1 year old to ride around the neighborhood. I think my best option would be the budget friendly ones but I’m worried they will not fit comfortably. What do you think?

  4. Dimitrina Spasova on June 21, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    What if you have two kids that differ significantly in weight? One is 11 kg, the other 23. Does it affect the riding experience, seing how the weight is unevenly distributed on both sides? What if you only ride with one of the kids on one side? I am aiming for Burley D’lite or Thule, I wonder if they are equipped for that kind of situation. I hope my question makes sence. I need something vesrsatile that will allow me to ride long journeys and if the bigger one gets tired, she can join her baby bro inside the trailer for a while.

    my son is going to be 8 months soon, and would be nice to take him out in a bike trailer with baby insert, but what you said in the end, does that mean you can’t pull him behind the bike untill he’s well over 1 year old? ( he can’t sit up by himsself yet) but can support his neck well enough.

  6. Jeremy Benson on June 21, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    K, guys. If some company could allow me to hook a small ATV trailer, or John Deer poly trailer, to a bike, you would have my business.

  7. Mariusz Klimczak on June 21, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Super that’s all my answers
    Thank You

  8. lol cat on June 21, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    We use our Burley all year round, I love picking up the kids with the bike instead of driving, they are growing and was wondering what you would recommend for bigger kids? Thanks!

  9. Jami Swan on June 21, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    super helpful thank you!!

  10. Alexandre Gomes Caetano on June 21, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    That’s a great video! Can you please help me with one thing? I have now just one kid but we might have another one in the future. So I would think to buy the Thule Coaster CT (for double) even though we have just one child for now. Do you think is too junky and awkward to ride with just one kid at side? Is it also dangerous? (because of unbalence)

  11. Rudy Rivera on June 21, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    I’m buying a hybrid bike for our local trails that are paved. I was looking at purchasing the Schwinn joyrider. We currently have a 2 year old and one on the way. I figured I would purchase the trailer for 2 so in a year or so I don’t have to purchase another trailer. Have you tried the joyrider at all?

  12. Daniel Borisov on June 21, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Absolutely brilliant video! Jam-packed with useful information, excellently filmed and edited. Also, to the point – 5:30 minutes and nothing is unneeded. Thank you very much.

  13. josiah gunter on June 21, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    I’m buying a tralier because i have no car and i half to haul water cases

  14. Eyez-wide-video Clips on June 21, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    I didn’t see weight get mention that makes a big difference too great video still a lot of info

  15. jerovy Becerra on June 21, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Como puedo conseguír carrito de paseo para mi bebe me interesa

  16. Gerardo Pujado on June 21, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    you know what the best of this video is? all those happy kids! you guys did great! thanks for a really useful video!

    I have just one question —would you recommend any of these trailers for being carried by bikes with 16 to 20" wheels? would that work? would it be safe? thanks!

  17. Tjwelder on June 21, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Can these trailers be safely used on ebikes

  18. CWR on June 21, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Amazing. With the exception of seeing this engineering marvel in action!!! Cmon, we need to see mom jog so we can see how the stroller behaves. We also need to see the ride behind a bike … maybe a trail or something? 😊

  19. A P on June 21, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Very informative, thank you!

  20. matthew anderson on June 21, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Awesome video

  21. AlienGirl77 on June 21, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    How about the co
    Pilot model T?

  22. lem ku on June 21, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    A good video but does anyone have a experience with thulet chariot cheetah 1? Is it good enough for a week or even month long camping trip(some parts would go by train) that may have different roads(smooth like a highway or bumpy like a nature trail)? My kiddo 2y old n it would be 2 of us

  23. Victor Paul on June 21, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Very informative! Thank you

  24. Gamer Dad on June 21, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Weight nd age limit ?

  25. Brian Ho on June 21, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Is that whistler’s BMX Bike Park where you guys are towing the trailer?

  26. Lifewithjoseph on June 21, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Can it fit a lawn mower in one

  27. Hadi D on June 21, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    This is how you make a buying guide. It’s perfect in every way.

  28. Romain Lorek on June 21, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    your bike trailer videos are super helpful to me! thank you so much

  29. Devora Ebriani-Efune on June 21, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    this is the video I’ve been looking for! thank you!! Which one would you recommend…I have two kids, want one that’s easy to fold and can also be used as a stroller. Will be riding it in the neighborhood and on smooth dirt trails.

  30. Victor Ajayi on June 21, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Can a 6 year old fit in any of the trailers??

  31. Sky Dumont on June 21, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Very helpful video thank you for making this 😊

  32. Alejandra Santiago on June 21, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Can you do a review or know about the aosom trailer/ stroller , I’ve been looking into getting one of those but I haven’t seen a review on YouTube

  33. Daniel "DazzaJay" Fitzgerald 🇦🇺 on June 21, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Great video, it helped a lot, but please, invest in a pop filter for your microphone. Watching this video through my Chromecast on my home cinema system causes the subwoofer to go BANG each time you speak a "P" sound.

  34. Dan Medeiros on June 21, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Que legal pena que no Brasil nada tem 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭🇧🇷

  35. Ademar Franco Lima Claure on June 21, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Es un modelo muy hermoso pero me gustaría para llevar a personas mayores y no solo para niños

  36. Claudia Couto on June 21, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Very nice video! Any reason for not mention Thule models when you compare all brands?
