This video is all about the AOSOM Elite Bike Trailer and Stroller Combo for carting around two young children.
Shows the unboxing, and assembly – which was really straight forward. Also our take on how to use the harness to secure your little one inside the stroller. The manufacturer doesn’t recommend you use it for children under 18 months however, we need to bike together sooner than that so we’ve figured out a way that appears to be safe enough to use it anyway even though our little guy is a tiny bit younger than is recommended.
We bought this first and foremost as a bike trailer, and the stroller function is kind of an extra bonus, but we are not entirely happy with the way it is meant to work as a stroller.
a) the brakes don’t have much stopping power.
b) the brake spring on one side of bike was sheared off so it slips out of it’s place often
c) the brake set up didn’t make much sense so either they were installed backwards by manufacturer or they’re poorly designed.
d) the front wheel (only for stroller mode) doesn’t turn to guide the back wheels at all – it’s in a static position.
But because none of those features are reasons why we bought the trailer, we are happy with it and will get a lot of use out of it.
Thanks for watching! I hope this helps you either set up your Aosom Bike Trailer, or decide if it is the right purchase for you and your family.
