Although this is not facebook I'll be happy to vote and like if you show why the trailer doesn't bump into the rear wheel each time one stopped.
And if you include that video into this instructible instead of sending it individually to people.
Pretty please?

It works

Does it slam into the back of the bike every time you stop?

No

Hmm. How is that possible? Most bike trailers have a rigid bar attatching them to the frame. I would imagine when you came to a sudden stop using this design that the bungee cords would go slack and the trailer would keep rolling. What stops that from happening? Do the training wheels lift off the ground when it gets going and then act as a brake when you slow down or something, Im a bit confused why you went with training wheels, Were those just the only available wheels you had? Training wheels have no axle bearings which is why i'm thinking they wouldn't be ideal as wheels that needed to support a lot of weight. I mean if it works it works.
