It's the bungee cord that you attach between two bikes, I guess for when people can't manage hills on their own. Or children, I suppose. There was a thread about it awhile ago, I seem to remember the device having a different name.

Googled: The Bicycle Bungee is another, same idea-- but the Tow-Whee gets the advantage for being $40 instead of $200.

I consider this dangerous, as one bike will go in a different direction and pull the other bike down. Would never consider this for children.

Having pull started many cold-natured 2-stroke dirt bikes over the years I would have to agree. Of course, tie downs are a bit short for the job, so wed generally loop two of them together. It was still quite sketchy and part of the, err, charm of dirt bike riding.
