Bushings for your hitch

Your Weehoo® bike trailer comes with 6 bushings to fit 99% of bicycles.  The bushings allow the Weehoo® bike trailer to be installed on seat posts diameters:

  • 25.4mm seatpost

  • 26.8mm seatpost

  • 27.2mm seatpost

  • 28.6mm seatpost

  • 30.9mm seatpost

  • 31.6mm seatpost

It is important, so that the trailer handles superbly, that the bushing fit the seat post tightly, while allowing the bushing to rotate around your seat post.

When you remove your seat post from your bicycle to install the bushing and hitch, you can see the seat post diameter stamped into the seat post.  Choose the bushing that is marked with the same diameter as your seat post.  Even if you cannot find your seat post diameter, you can choose the bushing that fits snuggly onto the seat post without significant movement between the bushing and seat post.  

Warning: the thick part of the bushing should be installed on the bottom of the hitch, as indicated in the manual.  This allows the bike trailer to rest on the seat collar, at the bottom of the seat post.

Other Seat Post Sizes

If your seat post is not one of the common sizes, you can do one of two things:

  • Install packaging tape on. your seat post, where the bushing will rest, to thicken the seat post for the bushing.

  • Buy an inexpensive seat post, slightly smaller diameter than your current seat post, then purchase in inexpensive aluminum shim to make the seat post fit your bicycle frame correctly.

Hitch and Bushing

When the correct bushing is installed into your hitch, the connection should be solid on the seat post without any looseness. Your hitch should also smoothly rotate around the seat post.

Bushing Fit for Non-Standard Seat Post Sizes

Over the years and Weehoo models (Classic, then Pro, then Turbo) the hitch and bushings have improved slightly, so the new bushings are not compatible with Classic and Pro hitches. This hitch and bushing kit is compatible with all
Weehoo bike trailers:

Hitch Kit for All Weehoo Bike Trailers

For non standard seat post sizes.

The best option is to downsize your seat post to a 28.6 or 27.2 and use an alloy bushing to fit the frame. The bushings are available online and are
inexpensive. Then you can use one of our bushings provided. We don't
recommend machining your own bushing.

The quick release pin works on all Weehoo bike trailers and replaces older threaded-type quick release levers.
