Weehoo Turbo Bicycle Trailer For Kids

Envy of the neighborhood.

The Wehoo Turbo Bicycle Trailer for Kids is designed to cultivate a cycling mentality in your child’s mind while relieving your rides of the wind sail that is the common kid trailer. Updated to be more compatible with a variety of bikes, including 29ers, the Turbo now also features a snap pin attachment instead of a quick release. When you hit uphill slogs, you can even encourage your kid to pedal along with you to get the sensation of being active and working with you for miles of smiles.

The three-point harness and foot straps provide some peace of mind, and moving parts like the chain and sprocket are fully enclosed to protect wandering fingers when the scenery isn’t enough of a distraction.

Really fun and she can pedal

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Makes preschool pick up and drop off best part of the day and some of the best time we spend together. One less car on the road too. Even at 4 years old, my daughter can actually push me for a minute - without me pedaling at all. She feels quite proud. I chose it because she can pedal and help out. Hills are much easier.

Kids happy, I'm happy

What a difference the Turbo made with my son.
Pros:
My son loves it so much that he asks me to ride all the time.
We can talk while we ride.
He outgrew the burley and can still use the Turbo for a few more years
He gets exercise with me rather than sleeping
I can ride fast through corners on narrow paths without toppling like my burley did on several occasions

Cons:
There is 15 minutes of assembly, wish it came assembled.
Rain cover and kickstand sold separately.
Wish I had discovered it earlier.

Unanswered Question

Do the pedals move on their own or only if the child pedals them?

Kid loves it

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Received the Weehoo about a month ago. Assembly is straight forward however it took some muscle and a rubber mallet to make everything go together. VERY tight tolerances I suppose are a good thing? Doesnt matter to me - it works. Took the WeeHoo out for an inagural ride and my daughter (age 4 - experience riding in a Burley Bee) loved it. She pedaled along (not sure it actually does anything... but its something for her to do) and took in the sights instead of being glued to an ipad in the Bee. Both of us enjoyed the ride much more. Highly recommended.

As a follow up, this would be a 5 star rating if the hitch was more easily installed / removed from the bicycle. As it is now - i have to remove my seatpost to install the hitch which is kind of a PITA.

Weehoo is the best!

We bought a Weehoo 3 years ago before our son turned 3. While it was an expensive purchase, it has been well worth the money. Not only is the trail-along bike been great, so has the customer service. From trying to get the correct fit (so the trail along doesn't wobble), to finding a car rack to hold the weehoo, and recently replacing the set of worn-out paniers (for free!), their costumer service has been top notch.

The bike itself allowed our son to accompany us on longer rides, while being more engaged (vs a trailer) and learning to peddle too. The weehoo still allowed us to keep him close to us (physically) in traffic. Something I miss greatly now that at 5.5 years old he's riding his own bike more and more. We still get good use out of the Weehoo on longer rides, since it's still hard for my son to ride more than few miles on his own.

I would definitely recommend the Weehoo to anyone who enjoys biking with their toddlers, as it will provide you with years of wonderful memories.
