Dear Wike Team,
We received our Premium Double on Wednesday, and it was love from first unfolding. We've tried it out in all its configurations, and the kids agree that they like it best behind Mommy's bike. They're quite miffed that it's snowing outside, as we were planning another ride today. Thank you so much for making such an awesome product!Thank you too, for packaging it in such a great, heavy-duty box! We had a rainy morning yesterday, so we turned the box into a bus, and at this point (mostly because of the weather) the kids have spent more time playing inside the box than they've spent in the bike trailer. (We plan to change this post-haste!)

Hello at Wike
I just purchased a Wike premium double for my son and daughter in law. They have 2 children ages, 3 and 1. I got the stroller/jogger conversion kit too. It is sooooooo easy in every sense of the word! The kids love it! The 3 year old calls it the race car stroller. We grandma's love it too. It pushes sooooo easy and has lots of room for the goodies. It is a superior product and worth every penny! They were using a borrowed Burley d'lite and the Wike is a far and away better product. Well made, user friendly and easy. Nothing frustrating about switching between stroller/trailer or storage mode. Great product! I just ordered another one for my daughter and her family.
Thank you so much! We have looked at so many other stroller/jogger/trailers and the Wike is the only one that worked for our daughter. We are truly grateful for this product as it has allowed us to participate together as a family. Your customer service has been great, too! Thank you so much for your time!!
Dear all at Wike,
Just to let you know we have just had a fantastic week away with our children including our daughter Emily for whom we imported a Wike special needs trailer from you a couple of months ago. We were able to go cycling together for the first time and to go on long walks down the beach which has always been impossible in conventional wheelchairs. This trailer is a fantastic piece of adaptive engineering. We are regularly stopped by passers by to ask where we got. I wonder if you have ever considered exporting to the UK. I think you would get a lot of custom over here. Another idea would be to put your web address on the side or the back of the trailer.
Regards, Tim Chatterton.
I bought in early spring a Wike bicycle training and I love it so much that I needed to told you. The service, shipping to montreal, the quality of the trailer and the rapidity to assemble it and dissamble it for transportation is simply marvelous. Continue your excellent work.
We bought a Moonlight double about two months ago and we are in love! My two boys (3 years and 13 months) love riding in it. My 3 year old asks to go for a bike ride every day! Your product is great and better than anything else we researched. People constantly stop us to ask us about it. A quick question...do you have an idea how to lock the trailer to the bike when you leave it? We like to bike to our local shopping area, but we're worried that someone will walk away with our trailer.

Thank you, Anna. You have a truly great product!

That would be great, in a time of profits above all else its nice to see a company go the extra mile. We own a business so we have been there to. You folks have a real pleasure to deal with and I thank you for your time and patience over the last few months. I will come back and shop again and I have told plenty of people about my positive experience with your company. Have a good day.

We received our Extra Large Wike a couple of days ago and we are very happy with it. My son asks for "Wike rides" as soon as he gets up every morning! It is very easy to assemble and collapse and I know Noah will enjoy it for years.
April 11, 2008
I hope you have had a great week! We recieved our wike on Thursday last week and have used it a bunch of time already! We went to West Edmonton Mall when lots of people stopped us and asked about where to get one! I think you have yourself a sales person in yukon and alberta! I love love love it! The kids love it too! It is great! Thanks again! This is my best online purchase ever!

Good Day My Talented Friends,
We have received our special needs trailer. What a great designed and fabricated unit. The craftsmanship is, without a doubt, made by people that have an extraordinary amount pride in their work, The balance and ease of towing is dramatic. When I unpacked and assembled it I thought to myself that I was going to need a motor for my bike. It pulls like a dream. Our Daughter has Cerebral Palsy and we have owned another trailer built by a bicycle company. I thought it was nice...until we received your rendition of a bicycle trailer. As I ordered the unit I thought that it was pricey...as the saying goes..."You get what you pay for". We are very pleased and will highly recommend your products to our friends and associates.
Question ~ What is the black rubber square mounted above the "Wike" logo on the rear of the unit? Also we received a flag but no way to mount it. There is two sewn in tabs but nothing to stick the base of the pole into. Are we missing a part?
With our blessings and thanks,
May God continue your business and above all your wonderfully talented employees!

Just wanted to send a note and tell you how thrilled we are with our WIKE....we received it Friday night and opened it as soon as we got it...set it up and we were ready to ride Saturday morning. Our disabled daughter is 12 years old with Cerbral Palsey and is mentally disabled....but she loves to ride.....what a joy it is for us all of us to be able to ride together....and see the smile on her face. We live in Floirda so we will be riding all year long. We also purchased the stroller wheels and have been to Target, Walmart and the mall.....we will be having a ball with our WIKE....thanks again for such a great product!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I received the extra large trailer in time for Xmas for my son. Thank you so much for shipping it so quickly! We just put it together so we can put it under the tree and I have to say, it is incredibly cool! It's actually much better made than I ever would have even expected and I intend to spread the word about what a great product this is on the listserv for my son's disorder.
I do have a few questions though please. First, I don't know if I'm stupid or what but I can not figure out how to roll up the screen and make it stick up top on the canopy. Second, if you use the rain cover do you leave the screen down and put it on top of the screen? If not I can't figure out how you get the screen out of the way. And lastly, I'm curious as to why the extra large version doesn't convert to a stroller. I think it would make an awesome stroller and all it would need is a wheel in front. I knew that it didn't convert so it's not a complaint, I'm just wondering what would prevent you from offering it on the large model.
I just love the huge storage bag in the back. That is great! I have the flag stuck through the loop above it and then does it just sit in the bag or is it supposed to slide into something else? I guess I needed instructions for setting up your Wike Trailer for dummies lol.
I also have a suggestion that would make this even better. A cup holder would be so great! It has the two bags which I am happy about, my son will be happy to be able to carry snacks! But I would want to give him a drink back there and he wont hold onto it the whole time. That means he'd have to put it in the bag and it wont hold it upright. A cup holder would be really great for him to have.
I need to thank you for the warning on the wheels with the fingers. I wouldn't have thought of that and he would definitely have done that and gotten hurt! Thanks for the warning I am certain that it prevented an injury here!
This trailer is so great and I can not wait for the weather to clear so that we can take it for a whirl. We have several awesome bike paths here so I know he'll get some great use out of it. Thank you for creating a product that will make it possible for me to share one of my favorite activities with my child!
(yes, it's going to snow so we wont be bike riding this week!)
Thought you might be interested in how our trailers came out. This is the first one.
We are all anxious to get them out and see how they work in the park.

For the past few years very few of my purchases brought a smile to my face when I opened the box. Too many manufacturers have sacrificed quality on the altar of profits.
I received the dog trailer yesterday and just wanted you to know that it put a huge grin on my face. It far exceeded my expectations for quality of materials, workmanship and design. Well done y’all!
Port Aransas, Texas
Just thought you might be interested in my application of your trailer kit. I used all the parts with the addition of a couple of pieces of aluminium angle stock. I go camping in hike-in locations ... no vehicles ... and being of an age that appreciates comfort I like to take in a few more items than I care to back-pack. I have a few more detailed pictures of the construction if you are interested. I use the larger 20" wheels and I find I can take the cart in with little more effort than walking without a pack. The location is the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park ... back country trails.... outside Thunder Bay. Everyone I meet on the trails stops to look at the 'cart'.

Hello again Anna,
I just wanted to say thank you again for all of your help!!
Your great service allowed our Wike to arrive in time to allow my 3 year old daughter to participate in the local Breast Cancer Walk with my wife. They had a great experience...and another child was very happy to get a lift too!
Our family could not be happier with your product. It is so incredibly easy to convert. I pull it behind my bike - my wife prefers to jog - so this is very important to us. The kids love it too! We look forward to years of enjoyment.
FYI - your company now officially has 4 Wike sales representatives in the greater Milwaukee area! We will tell everyone about Wike!
April 20, 2007
Have all my ducks in a row now - thanks very much for your help. Delighted with the Wike!
April 5, 2007
I found the assembly somewhat challenging as I am not skilled in such things (I had both shoulder straps off before I tried to put the first one back on...not the brightest move), but your design is so perfect not even I could mess it up. We've already enjoyed our first ride and my wife also took our daughter for a walk utilizing the stroller attachment - absolutely wonderful. Thank you again for taking such good care of us and for providing a product of unparalleled quality and design. We are going to need an assortment of helmet sizes as the kids at the local park all wanted to go for a ride.
Again, we offer our thanks,
Rob, Jennifer, and Ellyn

Hi I received my Wike Dog Trailer today, and put it together. My pug loves it already! Even though we haven't left the living room, he won't get out of it!
September 1, 2006
We got the Wike trailer around noon today delivered by UPS ( their service is great!) and couldn't wait putting it together when I arrived home from work. It took me approximately 5 minutes only to do it and my 2 yrs old son and 4 yrs daughter were both very excited.
We really like this Wike ! and I'm very impressed with its mechanical design and the quality of materials used as well as the yellow and blue color combination.
My wife, 2 kids and I are all very excited to use it when we go camping next weekend. Will send some pics soon!
Thanks to you and the whole Team for this high quality product!

Dear all at Wike
All I can say is fantastic
Trailer arrived in time for the Easter holidays.
All the children who come to us for respite and cannot ride a bike were able to go out for a ride.
Thank you very much from my wife and I,also from the children who can now go out riding all the best.
Tish and Marc Bridgland
A while back (last Fall) you all assisted us in selecting and obtaining a trailer to meet the needs of our daughter. "Santa's" delivery of the Wike bike trailer this past Christmas has been a hit with our family. The day after Christmas we went for a family bike ride.... the first with our daughter. It's been a fun ride... Just wanted to say thank you!

Greetings from sunny tropical Singapore! I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for developing such a wonderful product! We have been using our Wike trailer since September. Our two year old simply loves riding in the trailer while we meander along the cycling path by the beach. Our second child was born a few months ago. We can't wait for the second bambino to join us next year on our rides. Here is a pic of the first Wike in Singapore!

I called you last week to buy a new hitch because I got my bike stolen and... you just send me one free !!! Many many thanks!
As a small thanks here are some pictures of our trailer in its daily commuting use on a cold cold November day in Montreal. It shows that two kids of two and four in full winter suits still fit in cozily. We love our trailer it works great !!!
We've been showing off your Wike Jogger everywhere! This past weekend we took our 19 year old daughter to her favorite place on earth.....the North Carolina Zoo.....as promised, I'm attaching photos.......To complete the zoo and get back to your car is about a 4 mile walk and it was much easier with the Wike than it used to be in her wheelchair! I have also showed it off at the local bike shop! They were impressed! Thanks again for producing such a wonderful product for people with special needs...and for keeping it affordable.....so often special needs products are priced out of the reach of most families. Very Fondly,
Rhonda, Gary and Whitney Morgan

Dear Bob and Anna,
I just wanted to give you an update on our Wike trailer experience this summer. Due to an initial slight quality control issue on our first trailer, we were able to learn that your customer service was as excellent as the trailer itself. Since everything was corrected shortly after our initial order early this past spring, we have spent just about every weekend riding to the local farmer's market along with some extra trips. We had a unique opportunity this past weekend to go on an organized ride that included a lap around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Needless to say it was an awesome experience for the whole family. I think it is safe to say that we were the first Wike to ride the Speedway (attached are a few photos of the lap). Overall, the Moonlite is the pinnacle of elegance of design. The quality of the materials far surpasses those seen in models found in box stores. The ease of converting the trailer to a cart made our trips to the farmer's market fun and functional--we had a lot of people admire it too. The trunk is big enough to store our stuff, and the pockets for the kids are quite handy. If I had one complaint, it would just be that the walking wheel should be part of the basic package, so the connector does not go to waste as it scrapes along the cement when used as a cart. We also have to figure out some way to keep the kids from falling asleep during their comfortable ride. We will probably get at least another half of a season with the two kids in it, and another with the youngest. All-in-all it was well worth the investment, and has been an integral part of our family's outdoor fun.
Thanks for such a great product!

Well we have received the special needs bike trailer and WOW are we happy. It has exceeded all our expectations. It is absolutely wonderful. Thank you for sending it off to us so promptly.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Regards

I just got back from our first bike ride with our special needs trailer. OH!!! This is so great! I knew it would be good - but I did not know how good! We had overused a regular kiddie trailer handed down from my sister. It banged and scraped over bumps. Sean was getting so tall that he would rest his foot on my rear tire. He gigled at the sound and I huffed and puffed up the hills. The Wike trailer is smooth as silk. I could not hear is behind me. I am shocked at the weight - or lack there of. Sean lounged in pure luxury. I am also a compulsive organizer - so when I saw the little cargo nets and the big one in back (With Cover!) I was in heaven. I just called my sister and encouraged her to check your website. She has a daughter with CP and has not had a bike ride in years.
THANK YOU WIKE!!!!

Just wanted you to know that my large dog stroller arrived Monday and I couldn’t be happier with it. I am very impressed with the quality of the stroller. I was concerned that perhaps with a 50 pound dog in it it would be hard to push, but it’s effortless! You make a great product, and I’m glad I made the investment.Thank you again,
I just received my premium double bike cart. Love it! There was one surprise however. I thought that the adjustable push bar came standard so I just ordered the six inch swivel wheel. What would be the best thing for me to do should I send back the swivel wheel and order the stroller upgrade all together or would you be able to send me the brakes and push-bar and have me pay the difference and shipping since it was an oversight on my part. Please let me know what the best course of action would be.
By the way you have an amazing product. It was a snap to assemble and my girls can hardly wait to try it out. Parents must have had a hand in the design. It is wonderfully user friendly and versatile.

I just received my trailer this evening. Two days from Canada is very impressive. Even more impressive is the trailer itself. It took me less time to set it up than the little girl in the video. Having all of my options pre-installed was an unexpected bonus. I was not aware that it would come with a clear plastic front as well as the mosquito netting or that a flag was included… also a plus. This has to be one of the best though out and well constructed pieces of equipment that I have ever purchased. The weather should be good this weekend and I am looking forward to giving my grandson his first bicycle ride.The bad news…. I purchased a red trailer but the one that arrived was blue.The good news…. I actually like the blue much better than the red. You can’t have it back! J
Thanks for everything.

I purchased a large blue dog trailer for my Penninger recumbent trike. As I recall you weren't certain I could make the trailer work, due to the set up of the trike. My husband devised a hitch for the Penninger to work with your dog trailer and it is perfect. I thought Robert would want to see the photos of the hitch and have been meaning to write for some time now.We took the bikes to California and Oregon along with five little dogs. My twelve year old great nephew was able to ride the dogs around for hours along the beach. I included a photo of him for you, because it is a wonderful view of the trike and trailer along the beach.The trailer is fantastic and we were quite the hit wherever we went. Folks continually stopped us to take photos of the dogs in the stroller in the little coastal towns. The last photo was taken by some tourists from the mid-west in Bandon, Oregon. The dogs love the stroller and the trailer. It gives them the thrill of being out with us and seeing everything around them. I am as thrilled with it now as I was when it first arrived. As we travel in a VW Vanagon, we purchased a small trailer for the bikes and dog trailer. The design of the dog trailer is really clever in that it not only assembles easily and quickly but folds up so that it fits in easily between the two recumbents.

We received our Large Special Needs Trailer Monday and took advantage of a break in the weather Wednesday to go for a spin. Thank you for processing and shipping the order so quickly and efficiently.
This is one awesome trailer, we love it! The craftsmanship is extraordinary, the fit and finish beautiful, and it pulls like a dream! The smooth, stable tracking of this large trailer is appreciated, at times you forget it's back there. We live in a hilly section of central New York State, so stability on narrow, twisty roads is important, especially while descending. The sealed wheel bearings are quiet and efficient, a plus for the climbs around here.
Our 9 year old daughter has CP and is completely comfortable in the unit. She has plenty of room to stretch her legs, and likes the padded seat cushion. She also likes the unobstructed view through the large side windows and front canopy. This adds up to a happy navigator/backseat driver, and we're looking forward to some great Spring rides.

Wouldn't ya know, its raining! :)
We got our special needs jogger late last night and put it together this morning.....It was so easy to assemble! I am amazed at the thought that went into this wonderful contraption, someone thought of absolutely EVERYTHING!
Our daughter is turning 19 next week.....I got her an iPod full of Barney music and this wonderful stroller.....this will allow us greater freedom to get out of the house.......I'll send a picture once the rain stops!
Thanks for caring enough to manufacture this for such a reasonable cost!

Just a quick thanks for processing our order so rapidly. I'm not as speedy with my thanks unfortunately. We truly enjoy our WIKE! Even though my wife was home with a 2.5 year old and a 4 week old she was able to set the WIKE up with ease before I arrived home. Our oldest son loves going for a stroll as well as the longer trips into the city behind the bike.
Thank you again,

The Moonlite Single that I ordered on September 21st arrived yesterday evening. Opened the box, snapped the back wheels in; screwed in the stroller wheel; and, the younger of my two nieces and I were off for our regular walk. This morning, we went jogging in the rain (used the rain cover). I am glad I splurged on the stroller and jogging wheels. The former maneuvers the stroller very nimbly and the latter steadies We walk the older niece to kindergarten everyday (5 blocks each way), so this Moonlite will be used heavily as a stroller/jogger and occasionally as a trailer, at least until next spring.
I am VERY pleased with this Moonlite Single bike trailer: 1) easy to set up, fold and put away; 2) glides easy and light (as a stroller and jogger; have yet to try it as a trailer); 3) this is the most comfortable stroller I ever pushed- courtesy of the handlebar that DOES adjust to multiple heights (I stand under 5 feet); 4) craftsmanship is exceptional; and, 5) materials are great without looking ostentatious. It folds easily and small- in my Toyota Camry, I put it in the middle of the trunk and have plenty of room on either side for other things. This means I can load, unload and/or reach for things (including the Moonlite Single) without having to first unload or move other things out of the way.
Perhaps, most important is that my nieces like the trailer very much. They discovered that the Wike (all wheels removed) makes a nice tent! They are "camping" as I type this. So thanks for a great product and I look forward to years of fun with my nieces courtesy of this wike.
1) A pillow came with my order. Thanks!
2) I am the one who asked if the Moonlite Single comes with 16” wheels. I still think that 16” wheels would be attractive to people, like me, would use the Moonlite Single more as stroller/jogger and occasionally as a trailer (on easy, if not paved, trails). The 20” wheels are overkill for me, but they do make me look more active than I am ((:
3) You have a beautiful town (I visited downtown Guelph a few years ago while in Waterloo on business).
So thanks again and all the best.
September 27, 2004
Thanks so much for the quick response and the hitch. It is greatly appreciated. Our kids had their first ride this morning with my wife's bike and they were very excited. I have a friend that has had one of your trailers for a year or two and uses it (and raves about it) all the time.

John Morgan is SOOOO happy with his Wike bicycle trailer. He's always ready to go on a wike ride~! Just got it yesterday, set it up in less than 15 minutes this morning (without reading the directions!) and off we went! I LOVE IT!

Good Morning Robert,
I just wanted to let you know we received our Wike on Friday and used it quite a few times over the weekend. It is great! We are able to attach it to either of our bikes with very little fuss. Our grandson, who is 17 months, loves riding in it. He will put on his helmet and stare at his Grandpa until he gets a ride. It is really cute. Thank you for your prompt attention to our order. I know we will get many years of use and enjoyment from our Wike. Thanks again,
June 12, 2004
I just wanted you to know I solved my problem with the Revive and the attachment piece.
I love my buggy. I purchased a schwinn buggy when my children were small (now 28,27,26) and towed them frequently. Now, I can use my new Wike bicycle trailer to tow my grandchildren who love it. It is exactly what I was looking for, very high quality, very reasonable price. I just happened to come upon your website one day while researching new ergonomic bikes, what luck!

Robert and Anna,
I took the Moonlite bicycle trailer over to the park and Benjamin didn't want to get out even to go on the swings which has always been his favorite thing. We walked to meet my husband and it was so well balanced that it was no strain for me and so comfortable for Ben that he fell asleep! If anything was to confirm that we made the right decision than that was it. My husband is very impressed with the trailer and we can't wait to get our bikes rigged and go for our first outing. In the extensive research I have done on trailers and the user reaction that Ben has had to various brands, I think I can safely say that Wike bicycle trailer has not received the recognition it deserves. Congratulations on a superior product, we look forward to many wonderful outings.

I have been having so much fun with my Wike Moonlite Double bicycle trailer that I forgot to write to commend you on producing such an excellent product. The design is so easy to use, and the quality is unmatched. I found dealing with Wike to be a pleasure. My bike trailer arrived sooner than estimated. All the parts were included, and the instructions were complete and easy to follow. I was towing my grandsons in thirty minutes. Thank you for making me the most popular grandad in North Texas. I will continue to be an enthusiastic advertiser for you product wherever I ride.
Received in excellent shape. Quality exceeds expectations ... what a nice trailer! Our son is already sneaking off to sit in his "bike", wearing his helmet, in the midst of a dark garage. I'm certain he will enjoy it even more when it is moving!
Thanks very much for such a quality product.
April 7, 2004
Anna, All I can say is UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! This is the most awesome bike trailer I have ever seen (many many months of research and shopping) and worth every penny. My son Aaron was sitting in it and ready to go as soon as I popped it out of the box. The craftsmanship, design and ease of setting it up and converting from trailer to stroller to trailer are second to none. The design for storing the front stroller wheel while attached as a trailer is truly genius. If only the rest of our world were this easy. I can't wait for a little nicer weather to get here so we can get it on the open road. Many trips are already in the planning stage (stay tuned). Many of our friends with special needs children will be truly jealous, so hopefully more orders will be on the way. I will truly be a living testament on what an outstanding product this is. Thanks again.

Hi Anna, Today was the first day I had enough time to really explore our Wike bike trailer and I want to thank you again for such a well thought out product! I like that no part is wasted but each part is used for some other purpose - i.e. the tow bar which is also the jogging wheel holder. Our son had a great time today as we rode along. He sang to himself the entire way as we rode with occasional shouts and squeals when something caught his fancy while looking out the side windows.
Thanks again for a marvelous product!

This note is to let you know how pleased I am with the dog bicycle trailer.
The price of $229 ($259 with alloy wheels) was more than I had wanted to spend but, after seeing the lower priced competitor brands at Wal-Mart, Target etc., I'm happy to say I got what I paid for; unsurpassed quality and attention to detail. I could have saved a hundred bucks but "the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low cost." I'm especially glad I sprang for the upgraded alloy wheels. An extra $30 that looks like $130!! The frame, materials and parts all far exceed the quality and workmanship I expected, even for $259! It brought a smile to my face as I opened the box and began putting it together. The axles could have been used on the Mars rover; push button, spring loaded, positive lock and, the look and feel of quality. And putting it together was a snap...literally. The directions were the most clear and simple to follow of any I have ever seen. And the assembly was the easiest of anything I've ever purchased. Ten minutes, max. My dog Mollie and I will be enjoying many miles and years of biking on the Silver Comet Trail here in Atlanta. I'll be proud and confident to recommend your web site to all whose eyes are caught by the bright yellow and blue bicycle trailer with the little white dog grinning from ear to ear! Thanks again!
Your satisfied customer,

Greetings Anna, First off, I would like for you and the rest of the Wike staff to know how happy we are with our new bike trailer. It is spacious and convenient, and we are especially impressed with its build quality. It was an excellent value and it probably ranks as the top "sight unseen" purchase that I have made over the internet. I have one question for you concerning the jogging/stroller attachment. It appears that your new website contains options which are only compatible with the new, 2004 models. However, we are hoping to purchase an attachment that fits the model that we just received (a 2003). Perhaps there are some fittings that accommodate older models. If not, would it be possible for your to supply me with some information regarding last year's attachments? If there are still links to your former web page, that would also suffice. Thanks again for a wonderful product.
Hi Anna: My wife, son and I live in a small university town in northern Norway. So small, in fact, that it's not necessary to use a car at all. We have been using our Wike "Moonlite" bicycle trailer for about 6 months now and are very happy with it. From taxiing our son back and forth to nursery school to hauling groceries to camping trips out in our fantastic nature up here, you can't beat it. Thank you for a well built and designed (not to mention reasonably priced) product.
Hi Anna! I just wanted to write and tell you how much I love my Wike!
I bought it during the spring of 2003, and we had a fantastic time with it this summer. I hadn't ridden a bike since getting my driver's license (many, many, many years ago), and knew the only way I'd have the opportunity to ride again would be to take my 2 children along.
It connects and disconnects quickly and easily (a necessity as I do not have room to store a bike with a trailer attached to it. The bike goes in the garage, the Wike has to go on the porch), and folds in seconds. I haven't yet seen another trailer with as much headroom; my kids are 3 and 5, and they fit quite comfortably. The huge storage pocket, or "trunk", as my son calls it, easily held our beach chairs, towels, and bag of sand toys when we used it to get to the lake. I am very much looking forward to bike riding again next spring.
Hi Anna! Here's a picture of Beck Wakefield enjoying his Wike Bike Trailer! We love it. Thanks!
I just want you to know how thrilled I am with my trailer! It is extremely well made and intelligently designed for maximum ease and efficiency. The wheel removal system is outstanding. The hitch is very convenient, quick and easy. There is nothing "cheap" about this set-up. I was excited when I first got it, but thought I might find some things over time that I didn't like. That has not happened! This is a truly exceptional product! I'm so glad I bought it! The kids prefer it to riding in the car! I can't think of one thing I would change on it! Thank you! I am so pleased!

The bicycle trailer arrived today and went together in record time without any problems. The quality and design are much better than our current Burley Solo and TO BE HONEST neither the Burley D'Lite nor Yakima's Caddy Yak, though nice, are a better design or higher quality than the Wike Moonlight bike trailer we just received. We look forward to a long useful life for this bicycle trailer.

Hi, I just received my new wike Moonlight bicycle trailer and I love it. It attached very easily to my road bike but the framing of my tandem will not accept the hitch. I have attached photos as directed to do over the phone. Let me know if more measurements are required. I sent several views of the dropout.
By the way, I met someone at the local park (Rodale park next to the Lehigh Valley Velodrome near Allentown PA) who was very excited to see my trailer. He had seen the Bicycling magazine article that reviewed bike trailers but ended up purchasing the Burley since he had never seen a Wike. Well after comparison he regretted spending the extra money for the Burley, and I was more confident about the quality and features of the Moonlight. Thanks. Thanks for the help with my hitch.

I received my Wike Supreme bike trailer today (almost 5 days early). It was quite easy to assemble and rides like a charm. The only problem I had was the leash for the D-ring pin for the hitch was a bit to short so I switched it out easily with some heavy cord I use for back packing. My son Cole (19 months old) loves it, he calls it his "wee" because he has so much fun in it. I will say it rides better with an occupant than with out, not that it will be un-occupied very often. We also received a lot of attention on the hike and bike trail. Thanks for an excellent product.

We received the Wike bike trailer the other day and were so amazed at how easy it was to put together and how compact (relatively speaking) and easy it was to fold back up and put away. Can't wait to take the kids out as soon as our bike finish getting their tune-up.

Hi Anna: I just wanted to let you know that I received the bicycle trailer and I love it. Anyone who likes to bike and has a dog should own this trailer.
Thanks, Lara Westberg,

Hey Wicycle people!
Everything started on the right pedal. When we called for information: we got a human, he answered our questions, he called us right back with more answers, we placed the order. Then we actually received the package 2 DAYS EARLY!!! This is amazing to us because we live on a tiny island at a tip of the Bermuda triangle and all mail takes an average of 2 weeks to a month...
So we got the box, opened it up, and had the WIKE Supreme bike trailer assembled in less than 10 minutes. That’s including a diaper change! I have a small bike shop here, and my son, Kalix, is always literally drooling over our rentals and my personal quiver that he can only sit on. 20 minutes after delivery, Kalix was strapped in and headed to the beach in his new favorite toy. Even in between rides, he likes to climb in and hang out, hoping to inspire a trip to the beach.
Most roads are rutted dirt paths and the bicycle trailer is taking them nicely. We’ve Slimed the tires and lined them with Kevlar to prevent flats, so we can go exploring for many miles at a time. The storage area is key for long trips and Kalix’ Camelback. Rugged, sturdy, comfortable. Good job,Thank you!
I received my Super Shopper bicycle trailer this past week and I'm impressed with the quality workmanship. When compared to your competitors your product is clearly superior. The amount of money your competitors are charging for inferior products is outrageous.

The Wike arrived a couple of days ago and we love it! This is definitely the best trailer for kids on the market. We couldn't have found a better deal, either. Thanks so much.

Am I ever blown away with the improvements you have made. I love the hard floor (I had to add a wooden one to my original bicycle trailer) and all the quick releases that make putting the trailer in the trunk of the car so much easier ( I had to adapt the trailer bar on my bicycle trailer for quick release). It’s enough to make me seriously consider upgrading my own trailer later in the summer!
I also love the colour. So bright and vibrant! The new trailer will be making its local debut at the Tim Horton’s Sportsfest as part of a display to support our local Circle Trek, a fundraiser for our local trails. I anticipate even more interest in the trailer than the old one generated.
Once again, Wow, so many great improvements!

It arrived soon after I talked to you. It is beautifully engineered- I am very impressed. I thought the cart use would be an afterthought. It is not- I ran a mile to Whole Foods with it, compact enough to take in the store but huge capacity. Thank you very much. People very interested. Hope you get more orders. More later.

Thank you so much. Just got it and it is a great bicycle trailer at an awesome price. I really don't need a car after all!

The bicycle trailer arrived this morning, just in time for the weekend (4weeks to the UK). Looking forward to using it. My initial impression was the size. Unpacking the trailer it looked a lot bigger in our lounge than it does on the website. Its far better than the other bike trailers we have seen in the UK and despite the 17½% vat and import duties paid still remains excellent value for money compared with similar products sold in the UK.
The wike is great! a great product and I am glad I found you on the internet.

I am a retired 63 year old male. I do not drive and recently purchased one of your Super Shopper bicycle trailers. I cannot tell you what a Godsend it has been for me. Grocery shopping was always a major problem. I either had to take a taxi or walk. I could only carry enough groceries for a couple of days.
Now I am able to bring home a weeks worth of groceries in the trailer. The bike trailer is very easy to tow and I was very impressed with the quality. Thank you for making my life a lot easier.
Thank you and God bless you,

I just wanted to let you know that our Wike Moonlite bicycle trailer did arrive in time for us to take on holiday - the morning before. :-O (just under 4 weeks from Canada to the UK, aided of course by our 4 year-old’s nightly prayers for it to come in time). Its maiden voyage was a 6 mile round trip through Cotswold countryside over fairly bumpy paths, and we were very impressed with its stability, and judging by the faces of our two children (one of whom fell asleep), comfort! We were surprised at the amount of room inside – this is definitely the best money can buy as it will give a lot more use due to its size. The design is excellent, with the quick hitch and quick-release wheels. It is so easy to set up and set down.
Thanks again for an excellent product,

I just wanted to drop you a note saying that I received by Wike Super Shopper bike trailer and got a chance to use it this weekend and I'm psyched. this is one of the best innovations I've ever owned. You can't even tell it's back there. Setup was a breeze and it's a very well constructed little vehicle. My family and I plan to use this to cart all our stuff to the beach this summer in Maine on our vacation. It'll pay for itself in one week alone since we won't have to be the $7.00 - $10.00 per visit just to park the car there and there's no lugging everything from the parking lot to the beach since we can ride the bikes with the Wike right to the spot we want to setup. Thanks for providing such a great product and for the great service. We received our Wike bike trailer very quickly.

Hi, We just received your Special Needs Bicycle Trailer and got it out together in minutes. My daughter, who is 16 with CP, loves it! I have two other children 9 and 12, who, for the first time, were able to take a bike ride with their sister.

What a wonderful tool to allow my disabled daughter to participate in family activities!! The Clamp hitch attaches and detaches with such ease, setting up for a ride is no problem. The use of the spring within the hitch allows me to ride normally (leaning into turns) while the trailer says firmly planted on the ground. We used to split the family into 2 parts when my disease-free 10-year old wanted to take a bike ride. Now we can all go together! My younger daughter (with disabilities) enjoys being out with her older sister's group of friends; "just like a big girl". I am so impressed by this unit (and Wike's attitude to this market in general) that I plan on displaying my trailer at a family conference for our disease in July, to make other parents aware of this wonderful device. Please keep up the good work!
I just wanted to let you know that we are so very delighted with our Wike bicycle trailer! We finally had a chance to use it lots yesterday and it was such a blessing. The size is unbeatable and perfect for my older (6yr) child who needed the extra head and leg room. It was a breeze to pull and to get the kids situated. We feel that we have spent our money well and greatly appreciate the wonderful product that you have made available to us. Thank you so much!

Dear Bob (and Anna, and the rest of Wike):
My dad just bought me a bike trailer from you, and I love it. I just came back from a "Walk with Israel" in Chicago, and it was rainy and windy, and I was so comfortable.
You built a great bicycle trailer! good job!
I just wanted to let you know that I am so excited to have my Wike bicycle trailer!!!! I had been waiting for it to arrive ( in 5 days!) and I had it up and "running" within minutes of its arrival! It was so easy to hook up and once I started my ride I had to keep looking over my shoulder to ensure that it was still there - IT IS SO EASY TO PULL! I have recommended this product to my entire neighborhood - I think you'll be getting some calls! Again, thank you for this fantastic trailer that is everything I hoped for and more! The service you provided me was great, not to mention how fast it arrived! You have me on your side for life!
