Burley Alternative Hitch
All Burley trailers come with a Burley hitch that's ideal for bicycles with traditional frame designs. For many tandems and recumbents, bikes with full suspension, or bikes with disc or drum brakes, however, you'll need the Burley Alternative Hitch. Designed for strength, ease of use and versatility, it's available for quick-release rear wheels, or in a configuration for bolt-on wheels.
Burley has been a leader in bicycle trailer design for nearly 30 years and has earned a strong reputation for high quality, superior design and top safety. Their testing and safety standards are the most rigorous in the industry, and their designs provide a high level of child comfort and always aerodynamic and lightweight trailers.
Burleys are all made from light aluminum tubing and covered with a stain-, mildew-, and water-resistant 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 optimize handling and ensure an extremely stable and secure ride.
Burley’s 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. This enables you to do it all, and enjoy time with family, exercise, and run errands, all at the same time.
Burley trailers store easily, too, with a quick fold and easy-to-remove wheels. You can store your Burley in a garage, hang it indoors, or put it easily into the trunk of your car. Also with Burley's easy-to-use jogger and stroller accessories, these trailers can convert for a run, a stroll in the park or a cycling adventure. Burley trailers are strong, reliable, easy-to-use, in short, the perfect solution for your active lifestyle!
