The manufacturer’s price for the InStep Quick N EZ Double Bike stroller is $170 plus $10 shipping cost. You can however buy the bike trailer stroller cheaper with free shipping from popular online stores. The price you pay may depend on whether you buy the Teal or Orange/Gray color.

The InStep Quick N EZ Double Bicycle Trailer is easily one of the most popular choices for parents. Its overall design and performance is great, and the price is within the range parents can afford. However some customers have expressed some of their concerns about the trailer’s design namely:
- The Tires – Some off-road riders have expressed that the trailer’s tires wear too easily, but they work well if you use the child bike trailer stroller mainly for road trips and leisure rides through the park. So it really depends on how rough road riding the bike trailer is used on.
If you intend to do a lot of riding off-road, I should add that the Quick N EZ Double Bike Trailer tires are easy to replace, not expensive and the sizes are available in many online stores.
