About Burley Design
Burley Design has been the leader in child bicycle trailer design for nearly 30 years and has earned a strong reputation for high quality, superior design, safety, and trailer strength. Burley's testing and safety standards are among the most rigorous in the industry, and their designs provide a high level of child comfort in an aerodynamic and lightweight trailer. Burley's trailers are all made from lightweight aluminum tubing and covered with a stain-resistant, mildew-resistant, and water-repelling polyester, high-quality fabric. The geometry of each trailer is specifically tuned to reduce the weight on the connecting hitch, while at the same time providing an even balance point over the trailer wheels. This minimizes the load on the bicycle to maximize handling and ensure an extremely stable and secure ride.

The stylish designs are also functional with large windows, a comfortable suspended hammock-style seat that minimizes the bumps in the road, and a generous storage compartment to enable you to do it all and enjoy time with family, exercise, and run errands all at the same time. Burley trailers store easily with a quick fold and easy-to-remove wheels. You can store it in a garage, hang it indoors, or put it easily into the trunk of a car. With easy-to-use jogger or stroller options, Burley trailers can convert for a run, a stroll in the park, or a cycling adventure.

Thirty years ago when my son and daughter were growing up my wife and I each had a bike seat on the back of our bikes, and often took some 20+ mile rides with them, sometimes on very hilly terrain. Those rear end bike seats work, and are still used by many parents because they are relatively inexpensive compared to a bike trailer, and also pose no issues for riding in tight spots (more on that below).

But when it came to buying something for my sixteen month old granddaughter, I recognized that although my reflexes and physical ability are still pretty good, there is a difference from thirty years ago, and I did not feel comfortable putting my granddaughter in one of those rear seats.

If the bike goes down with a rear seat, then so does the child in the back (never happened to me or my wife when my children were growing up), whereas if the bike goes down with this particular trailer, the trailer will remain standing. That's a really important safety feature to me (more about that below). I confirmed it while working on my bike in my driveway while the bike was attached to the trailer, and accidentally knocked the bike over (no, my granddaughter was not in the trailer at the time). I immediately looked to see what happened to the trailer--and saw that it was still standing in place.

No doubt this bike trailer is much safer than a rear seat, but which model to buy. The Bee is the bottom of the line of Burley's trailers. Does that mean it is not durable or made well? Absolutely not. What it does mean is that it lacks certain features of the more expensive models--none of which mattered to me, but let me tell you what they are.

Out of the box, this trailer is a hex key away from taking it for a night on the town. The only thing needed to be attached is the wheel guards and Burley is kind enough to provide the perfect sized hex key to accomplish such a task.

First of all, I want to touch on the specifications. The wheels are made of a strong plastic and come equipped with pneumatic 20" wheels that detach with a simple push of a button. These don't seem to come off easy unless you are fully pressing the button. Of course, what can I say, I just received the bike trailer last night. The inside (which I plan to get a photo of for the customer images) is wide enough to fit two children but as mentioned in other reviews, it seems a little tight for my 2 children and the stuffed giraffe to tag along. The Bee's straps seem cheap when compared to the more expensive models and I guess I don't see 5 thin straps that are likely the same make up of those found in a shopping cart as a FIVE POINT PROTECTION HARNESS (Grr! SO tough). Of course with a little know how and a little DIY spirit, it can be improved significantly. My biggest gripe, (quite petty but still a factor) is that there is only one mesh cup holder on one side. As you can imagine, this can get a kid all fired up and ready to argue. (ex. "BUT DADDDDDDDDDDDDDD, I WANT A PLACE TO PUT MY JUICE TOOOOOOOOO") Of course, maybe I have extraordinarily bratty kids.

As for the storage space, it is small but it is nice. I can fit two good sized reusable bags when I shop with my kids at the co-op. If I only have one with me he can befriend a third bag on the hammock seat.

We were very excited to get this trailer and take it for a spin, but when we put our (average-sized) 13-month-old into it, we started having second thoughts. The harness system seemed really flimsy, the seat doesn't offer much support, and the webbing cuts into the neck of our apparently too-short passenger. Oh, and also, because he was slouched down in the seat, the "helmet pocket" was useless (because he was below it), and his helmet just slid forward into his face and made him angry.

One thing I will say is that Burley's customer service is fantastic -- when I called to ask whether we should try the Snuggler insert to make our son more comfortable, the customer service rep suggested rolling up a towel for lumbar support and another to act as a booster (if need be). I was impressed that she didn't push a product on me, but rather, a practical solution. Anyway, we found a used Solo that works WAY better for smaller passengers (though the seller said his kid rode in it until she was 6 or 7) because of the padded, reclining seat and padded harness, so the Bee went back. As usual, props to Amazon for quick shipping/easy returns.

At first we were considering a less expensive trailer (around $99) but, after reading reviews of the others and how several returned theirs and got a Bee, decided to get the Bee. Being our first trailer, we didn't know what to expect, but we are very happy with it so far. It was super easy to assemble and the pneumatic tires are a big help when going over gravel in the road. I do wish there were a few more inches of room in the seat since we have a 2 1/2-year-old boy and a 1 month old girl (no, we do not put the newborn in the trailer). Our boy takes up a lot of room when sitting in the middle. I can't imagine when she is old enough to ride that both will fit comfortably.

That aside, our boy loves going for rides, especially since daddy is the one doing to the work :)

Well worth the upgrade in cost, in my opinion.
