FollowMe: cycling with children made easy
The name couldn't be more accurate. After all, the FollowMe hitch is the ideal tool for riding safely together with children and showing them how to cycle on their own. The time comes when little boys and girls want to ride independently and it’s definitely amazing how fast they manage to master their bikes. However, this does not mean that they’re able to always assess traffic situations and other factors correctly.
Compared to a forest path without any motorized traffic, busy roads and city streets may represent a real and often dangerous challenge for your child. With FollowMe, you are free to decide — anytime. In fact, the concept is quite simple: in situations which are less safe or just more demanding, the tandem coupling is your fast and reliable solution! Connecting your child’s bike to your own, the FollowMe coupling ensures that your child will ride safely in your slipstream while still enjoying the cycling experience. You will not only gain general mobility even with very small children but also still be able to face difficult passages. And there’s another amazing thing about FollowMe: the hitch can be easily adjusted and adapted to the different sizes of your child’s bikes as it grows. The unique design makes it possible to attach bicycles with wheel sizes from 12 to 20 inches.
Hitch the child’s bike and off you go
The installation is quite easy. The FollowMe coupling is attached to the rear axle of the towing bicycle. Once mounted, the FollowMe adapters can stay permanently on the bike. The clamp on the down tube of the child's bicycle and the axle adapters on the parent's bicycle are the fixing points for the FollowMe tandem. The mounted adapters allow you to use the FollowMe hitch whenever you want and in a fast and secure way. While stopping the front wheel of the towed bicycle from turning, the tandem coupling adapter also lifts it off the ground. The distance to the ground can be adjusted by means of a down tube clamp on the child's bike. The construction does also block the handlebars of the child‘s bicycle ensuring a firm hold and secure seating position.

Your child may get tired or you might want to connect its bike to yours on busy roads and in other demanding or even dangerous traffic situations. With the FollowMe coupling, the child’s bike can be quickly attached to the parent’s bike. This way, you are always able to react to changing situations without needing any tools. And as soon as they want and it is possible, the little cyclists can ride on their own again.
