Easy to assemble and store. Very lightweight. Made minor modification with extra 1" webbing so groceries wouldn't slide out front or back. Much cheaper than the extra ~$100 for the Nomad. Would like it with an option for a longer tow arm so I can put my longer kayaks on it. Does barely OK for playboats.

This trailer seems to have the best cargo capacity to price ratio I could find. I was disappointed about a lack of support under the fabric bed, but I built a simple bed of 1/2 inch plywood that clamps onto the aluminum frame without too much trouble. I am a sculptor in New York City and wanted to carry heavy buckets or mold making rubber from the store back to my studio in another borough. I suspect the sharp edges of a 5 gal. pail would probably do some damage. I've only had the opportunity to load it with about 70lbs of material (including plywood bed) with which it did excellent. The plywood bed with metal tie down mounts might weigh about 8-10lbs. That still puts the trailer at less than 25lbs. Even with the plywood floor installed I can still fold it up and store it in my apartment. Hopefully soon I can test the 100lb capacity, I do not expect any problems whatsoever.

In love with this thing. It has made it's maiden voyage at the beach in Wildwood Crest, NJ. Parked the car when we got here and this thing has done all of the heavy lifting for us - with my pedal power of course. Have been getting smiles and thumbs up on our excursions to grocery and liquor stores. Apparently the site of a 40 quart Rubbermaid container with two thirty packs strapped on top makes people happy. Definitely carried well over a hundred pounds with nary an issue. Looking forward to many more years and miles of bonding.

I use this trailer for getting large and heavy items, and it has served me well over bumpy roads, uphill and downhill. It is stable, rides smooth and my trike pulls it nicely, even when it is well loaded. It is rather wide, but so is my trike. Quite sturdy, and I say, worth the price. It also shipped quickly, and arrived in good shape.

This trailer replaces a Burley Nomad that I had for 6 years and sold for almost what I paid for it new. The Flatbed is better than the Nomad. With a solid axle across the bottom it probably would carry a fair amount more weight than the rating...the Nomad's wheels tended to flex inward at the top with a heavy load. Being open gives me the ability to modify things to carry any sort of cargo and my pile of aluminum tube will be put to use. I added Schwalbe Big Apple tires with purchase because they are absolutely bullet proof and provide a degree of shock absorbtion. The hitch is the best available and the trailer can be put on or taken off in less than a minute. Typically I use this with a Rubbermaid box with hinged lid and it fits like it was made for the trailer and provides 100% dry storage. The only trade off is the inability to ride single track off road due to the width of the two wheels but I don't do that anyway. This trailer is silent and if properly loaded and balanced you will not know it's there unless you're carrying a load of bricks. I love the versatility that I get with my bike by adding this trailer.

Hello, Very courteous and prompt service! I received my new Burley Flatbed a couple days ago, I liked the looks and feel of it right out of the carton. Very light for its overall size and quite sturdy. Not to mention cool looking too! In a very short time I assembled the few parts that were not already set. I waited until the weather warmed a bit and went for a ride after attaching it to my Specialized Hybrid Bike. It was a very smooth ride! Today I loaded about 50 pounds on it and rode for a few miles. Also was a very smooth ride, perhaps even a bit more so with the added weight for 'stability." Tried it attached to my Specialized Sequoia Road Bike as well. Great trailer!!!!! I have been shopping by bike for some years. Most of my shopping is within 10 -12 miles round trip. Now I can pick up even more things locally. Can't wait to go to the local nursery supply and bring back my necessities in the Spring! Did I say it is a great trailer?

I ordered the Burley Flatbed; it arrived quickly and as promised (as soon as the stock arrived) and I hooked it up and was cruising that night. I love it! I'm heading to the grocery store today and also picking up a pallet of flowers to plant. Josh recognized that one of the bikes I might be towing with, a Burley road bike, had dropouts that required the alternative hitch which works just as well on my other bikes. I can only imagine that, purchasing it somewhere else, I would have gotten the standard hitch and been disappointed. Thanks Josh!!

I love the Burley Flatbed. I use it to carry groceries (up to 100 lbs!) and I also put my soft-sided dog crate on it so my dogs can go with me when I ride. It arrived almost completely put together and it was very easy to follow the directions to finish the job. Love it!

Wow, great trailer! The quality and design are really good. I'm looking forward to putting many miles on it this year! It arrived very quickly and was easy to set up. When I put in on my bike for the initial ride, I couldn't even feel it behind me, it is so light. For the price I don't think you can find anything better!

I chose this trailer because for my needs it offered the most versatility. I spent a great deal of time researching models and prices and without a doubt, Biketrailershop.com had the best price at the time of purchase. I frequently purchase various items online and I can honestly say that this was the fastest shipping of a product I have ever experienced. Josh provides an amazing consumer experience and I will recommend this site without hesitation to my friends. Keep up the awesome customer service!

The trailer shipment arrived in a timely fashion with no damage. The set up was amazingly easy and fast, quite intuitive. The flatbed trails beautifully; empty it hardly seems that there is any drag at all. I've hauled huge yard refuse bags filled with oak leaves and pine needles, probably 35 lbs with nary a problem. The attachement hardware is well designed and hook up is safed with strap and snap. Makes shopping for everything from the dry cleaning to the 25 lb of flour from Sams club a breeze.

This is a wonderful trailer!! Set up is super easy and it rides very smooth off the back of my fixie! I can barely tell it's there, no problems with turning... even fairly sharp turns are taken with ease, just don't forget it's on the back when you try to squeeze between obstacles. Other than that, I can not say enough good things about it. I hauled boxes of recycle center cans and bottles, packages for the mailman, flats of flowers for our garden... you name it, it will take it on with ease! If you are gonna get a trailer, buy this one, you will not be sorry!

Our son is 20 years old and mildly intellectually challenged. His mode of transportation through the neighborhood is his bicycle. With the trailer on the back of his bicycle, he is now able to transport what he wants to bring with him. He is truly enjoying this added space. The trailer is easy for him to remove and replace as needed. Also, the customer service at Bike Trailer Shop is tremendous. As we worked to get the correct hitch to attach the trailer to his bike, we couldn't have gotten more support. We would not only recommend this trailer, but also purchasing it from the Bike Trailer Shop.

I bought my Burley Flatbed a little over 6 months ago and can't believe I've gone so long without one. I mostly use my Flatbed for errands and groceries. I rigged her up with a Rubbermaid ActionPacker which sits very nicely between the sidebars. It keeps all my stuff safe and dry and I can lock it all up with padlocks on the handles and a cable up to my Ulock. For a tour I'm planning in Northeast Vermont this Spring, I just bought an Ortlieb Rack Pack to pack my gear in(a bit lighter than the ActionPacker). Overall I love the Burley's sturdy, basic design. It pulls very smoothly and carries almost anything that I used to put in my car. The hitch works well in that I can switch it between my 2 bikes however I'd like if it was a little quicker to do and undo like I've seen on the B.O.B. trailers.
