What We Look For in a Trailer

Burley Bee

Cabin Design: A sturdy, supportive seat prevents two kids from being squished together during a ride. Taller and wider trailers can provide a more comfortable ride.

Tire Size: 20" air tires with metal rims provide the smoothest riding experience.

Durability: Choose thick fabrics and durable zippers for longevity.

What We Look For in a Trailer Cycle

4-year-old in Weehoo

Type: Standard trailer cycles attach to the adult's seat post, recumbent trailer cycles sit low to the ground.   Pull bar and pull ropes tow a child's bike behind and adult's bike.

Stability: Not all trailers are a smooth ride - minimal play in the hitch is a must to prevent wobbling. Recumbent trailers with low center of gravity are generally easier to pull.

We have lots of additional information about trailers. Check out our featured articles below!

  • Ryan Kelso

    I’ve got an almost 4 year old that is ~42″ and an almost 2 year old that is ~36″. I’m concerned that some trailers are going to be too small, or will not leave them any room to grow. Do you have any recommendations considering their size and age? One with a stroller option would be nice, but not required.

    • It all depends on how much your kids like each other :). They will fit, but it will be close quarters. If you want to ensure that they will fit and not outgrow the trailer, especially height wise, I would take a look at WIKE’s line of trailers (such as the Premium Double, http://amzn.to/2nDMiDH. If you aren’t worried about a stroller and are okay with a less padded seat, the Moonlite is also an option, http://amzn.to/2ow45Az.

      • Ryan Kelso

        Thanks for sharing. The Wike trailers seem like the most practical option with older kids, especially considering that it’s still going to be a while before our older boy will be ready to ride on his own. My only hesitation is that the Moonlite is about $100 more than a Burley Bee when you include Wike’s shipping fee.

        • True, that is a big jump. We are actually reviewing a WIKE right now and I will say that it is very well made, but is more rugged than refined like the Burley or Thule, but not necessarily in a bad way. I will also say that my 5yo has plenty of head room in the Burley and the Thule, but he in the 50th percentile for height.

  • Elisa McDonagh

    Hi there I’m in a quandary! I’d settled on the Thule CX1 which will mainly be used for cycling in hotter countries, the selling point was the zip down side windows still covered by bug nets (I don’t think just venting will be sufficient). However I’ve now found it’s been discontinued, it is available but at over inflated prices that I can’t afford. I’ve contacted Thule and the newer version (the Cross) doesn’t have this feature (zippable sides – indeed none of their newer models do).

    I’ve two questions:
    1 Anyone with experience of cycling in hotter temperatures (I’m talking 30 degrees c found side venting adequate for their child?
    2 Is anyone aware of any other brands with zip down sides (but still with bug nets)? I’ve spent a long time looking and found nothing.

    Thanks

    • Argh, yep, side venting is no longer available on any trailers. Your best bet now is to look for one will plenty rear venting. In hot weather you are going to want as much air to flow through the trailer as possible. I would also stay away from trailers that have a plastic clear peak through window as it would likely make the trailer hotter. From the trailers I have seen, I would probably go with a Burley as you could easily prop up the rear trunk cover to allow more air flow.
