For over 30 years, Burley and the Burley bike trailer has lead the bike trailer market by producing the famous bike trailer, as well as a variety of child bike trailers. Recently, the company launched a new commuter trailer that was officially presented at the 2010 EuroBike tradeshow where it won a Gold award for quality, efficiency, and safety.
Started in the 1970s by Alan Sholz and originally called “Burley Bike Bags”, Burley rapidly became the ultimate bicycle trailer manufacturer in the country. Several years later, it developed into a worker-owned cooperative and was eventually sold to an Oregon businessman who has continued to improve the design, durability and comfort of all Burley bicycle trailers.
The Nomad bike trailer offers ample space for carrying items when taking long, touring bike rides. With its weatherproof cover and four interior/eight interior D-rings to keep gear from moving around, users of the Nomad will not have to worry about damaging even the most delicate of items. Other features of this bike trailer include:
The Flatbed is designed for larger loads weighing over 100 pounds. It features a balanced point that effectively decreases torque and a hitch perfectly placed to give superior stability and tracking. This bike trailer also has an open back and front that facilitates hauling big items & extended items. Adjustable tie-down straps help keep your load even more secure and safe from the roughness of off-road terrain.
Specifications and key features include:
This is the revolutionary bike trailer that won an award at the 2010 EuroBike tradeshow. Famous for offering design innovations and the ability to transport nearly anything you wish (up to 60 pounds of stuff).

To detach the Travoy, users just grab the hitch, twist and the trailer is instantly transformed into a lightweight (less than ten pounds) rolling cart.

Burley also makes trailers for safe and easy pet transportation purposes. The Tail Wagon bike trailer is adjustable to allow space for small and large dogs and provides a “flip-down” tailgate to facilitate loading and removing pets.

If you plan on using a bicycle as a bug-out vehicle, hitching a Burley bike trailer to your bicycle can give you the ability to haul a large amount of survival items in the event you have to flee a large-scale disaster area, and either don’t have fuel or your motor vehicle won’t run.
