4.0 out of 5 stars A great all-round trailer 4 Jan 2009
I've had this trailer for over a year and I must say I am very happy with it. As a trailer is can accommodate my two sons (6 years and 3 years) although it is a little squashed. I've read concerns about having only one child in there, but its pretty easy to put the child in the middle.

I would agree with a comment I read that is not the most comfortable ride for the child, especially if there are two in there, but generally if you are within the recommended speed (10kph I think) its fine.

There was one slight problem in that the children would from time to time hid their heads off the two internal bars as the trailer went from side to side while I was turning. However, I've fixed this by putting some pipe lagging over the bars.

It has a large rear pocket which is very useful. I take my son to school and we put his school bag in there. There are cup holders on the inside and it can be converted into a double buggy too (although the lack of break is pretty annoying).

All in all I would recommend this buggy/trailer. I've only given 4 stars because I think it really needs a break when used as a buggy, but for the money you wont do better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bumper Explorer Duo Trailer - review 12 Nov 2010
I spent many days searching all possible trailers. There are cheaper ones on some auction sites but I believe you get what you pay for and the Bumper Duo is only £20 more.

I am an engineer and look closely at the design and assembly, and the materials and fixings used. The Bumper is Both sturdy and robust. I have read complaints about stiching at the seat and wheels that seem to be a bit loose. I have no such problems; the stiching is very sound and although there is a little play on the wheels, this is not uncommon for this type of arrangement and remember this is a trailer (i.e. being dragged behind a bike, there is no power to the wheels) and presents no mechanical problem to me.

I also looked closely at the connection systems from bike to trailer. The Bumper is very simple and mechanically very sound. I did not won't a trailer which uses clamps to the bike frame, these are inherently weak and more likely to fail (have read reviews of clamps failling and back wheels being destroyed). The Bumper has a steel fitting which you fit under the rear wheel axle nut, this is connected to the tow bar of the trailer with a pin and lock arrangement. As with all trailers there is a fail safe strap which ties onto the bike frame incase the mechanical fixing fails. In my opinion, under normal use and properly fitted the mechanical fixing cannot fail. I needed this confidence before I would purchase any trailer.

Wheels and towing arm remove and fold very simply and easily (very safe too), and the whole thing can be put up or down in 30 seconds. Folds flat and small enough for any car.

Option of fitting front wheel and push handle for stroller works just as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bumper Duo bike trailer 30 May 2010
By JD
Verified Purchase
What a shame ! We looked carefully at the different types of trailers. This one looked really good, nice design, reasonable price etc.
But the first one arrived on a Saturday morning and within an hour of use the seat stitching under the rear window had come away. This made the seat useless and so I returned it. We thought it must be a one off problem so we ordered another.

That arrived on the Tuesday. My two year old son now, already thrilled with his "bike car"!
Within a couple of hours the seat came away in exactly the same place under the rear net window !

How depressing ! My son is not over weight, probably about 15 kilos ! The Bumper duo is supposed to be able to carry up to 45 kilos, so it is clearly a design fault or perhaps just poor manufacturing.
This time I've asked for a refund and we'll have to find something else which is better made. This will probably mean spending quite a lot more !
It's a huge pity because my son loves going to nursery school and the local park in it.

The people who make these things need to redesign the seat so it is stronger. The part which has frayed and comes away, is exactly where the main weight is distributed. I am sure we are not he only ones to have suffered from this !

Now, after two dodgy ones we are faced with either paying quite a lot more for a better one to keep our little one happy or giving up !

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value product 29 May 2009
The trailer is easy to assemble, and folds down for storage.
It seems really sturdy and fits easily to my bike.
The reason I've given the product a 4* instead of 5* is because the harness could be a little more comfortable, its not padded at all. However, if you only have 1 child in there you can strap the child into the middle of the trailer which is better then sitting on one side.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good finish 25 May 2010
I purchased this trailer for my twins aged 3 and after using it only twice, the back of the inner seat completely tore under the mesh window.The twins are well within the max weight limit.This is very disappointing as I live in Spain and no longer have the original packaging,therefore it would have been complicated and expensive to return to the UK, as well as the inconvenience of not having it while this problem was sorted.In general the seams throughout are badly finished with loose threads from the fraying material.The sling seat takes the full weight of the passengers and the way it is designed is inadequate. The manufacturers need to rethink this design fault.It is a real shame as it is a very useful and fun-for-the-kids product.

Item as described. However, of note to very small number of potential buyers, this trailer fits quick release bikes (like most bikes are) and not bikes with maxles or thru-axles.
