About this deal

If your kid’s bike has a different kind of axle on the front wheel then you want to purchase either the quick release axle extension or the hollow-axle extension as add-on parts.

It’s worth mentioning that the standard FollowMe Tandem comes with a hub adaptor for the child’s bike with a bolt on axle. It was easy for my bike man to fit – and then easy for me to use – mind you i need to have the bikes leaning on something else to attach and detach her bike. For trips without children, the complete FollowMe hitch is removed from the towing bike in an instant. However, your ground clearance is very low due to the nature of the FollowMe and the smaller size of your kid’s bike!They may think they are helping by applying the brakes at a junction, but not being able to pull away as you’d intended could cause problems!

Ein Punkt Abzug allerdings, weil sich an allen möglichen Stellen Rost bildet (werdet ihr an der Nordsee merken) - das geht besser! it should be noted that you need to cut the metal strip on the bracket that fits the child’s bike to size. The literature that comes in the box states that the FollowMe can be used in conjunction with panniers, however we encountered a problem when trying to fit the FollowMe and the rack for the Topeak Babysitter on a year 200o Specialized Rockhopper Comp mountain bike. Riding your bike with the FollowMe and your kid attached in “tandem mode” isn’t harder than riding a bike all by yourself.Up to now, Chris has been using it to take our 3 year old, T, around town but we haven’t had the opportunity to test it off road, or for me (Karen) to have a go. I’ve been told from good authority that there is a ‘man’ trait that all blokes have that goes something like this – when a new item or gadget is collected or comes through the post, every man immediately takes it out of the box with a look of wonderment on his face, then proceeds to pick up the manual and packaging and throw it into the bin. When riding separately, the frame folds up and clips to the parcel rack, or seat post, via a fabric strap. Let’s add some finishing touches by sliding the kid’s fitting kit on the down tube up and down until the front wheel of your kid’s bike is about 3 inches above the ground.

Die Metall-Halteklammer wird beim ZL 12 recht weit unten in der Nähe der Kurbel befestigt, in dem kleinen "Rahmendreieck". 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. Secondly, there is a little strap and spring hook included that you may want to run through your saddle. And one I get all the time from other parents who ask me about our FollowMe on our weekend bike tours (which happens pretty often, more on that later).

A Swiss design, the FollowMe Tandem is a clever parental tandem hitch for coupling a children's bicycle to an adult bicycle. The FollowMe Tandem allows you to adapt to different situations to ensure a great family cycling experience. Another defect is in the strap that holds the coupling folded away when you are not towing a child's bike.
