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.

WANNA SKIP THROUGH MY REVIEW AND GET A PROS AND CONS LIST? IT'S AT THE BOTTOM!

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.

We spent a lot of time reading reviews before purchasing a bike trailer and opted to spend the extra money on the Burley Bee based on other reviewers comments. It is definitely money well spent! The Burley Bee is essentially fully assembled out of the box and there are easy to understand videos available online if you have any questions about attaching it to your bicycle. Pulling the trailer is a breeze too! I haven't ridden a bike in years and our kids are too young to keep up when riding through the neighborhood, so this is the perfect solution. I can barely tell they are behind me unless I am going uphill, so don't be afraid of the trailer weight! The seating is tight for two kids (ages 2 & 4) and it is a combined seat/seatbelt system so they slide into each other in the middle. They didn't complain too much but said it was hot but still fun!

There are some amazing reviews of this trailer (with pros and cons, etc) on here, so read them. I'll throw my 2 cents in just to ensure you have enough data to make an informed decision. We love this trailer - it is the basic model - if that's what you're looking for then this is your buy. It's extremely light weight yet sturdy, it packs up very simply. It has a nice compartment in the back for storing other items (other then your children). The safety buckles are basic but easy to use. We love it.

I did look at the other models in a store the other day and really the only thing you're not getting with the 'Bee' model is the ability to convert it into a jogger and the seats/belts aren't as cushioned and plush. But kids don't really mind. They're just excited to be dragged behind your bike for a few miles.
