Congratulations!
You’ve just purchased a Burley® trailer, the leading choice of discriminating bicycle trailer owners worldwide. Every effort has been made to ensure
your purchase is of top quality and proven design, ready to provide you with
many years and thousands of miles of happy, safe trailering.
IMPORTANT: Because some of the features and guidelines for using the
Burley-Solo merit close attention, it is very important that you familiarize
yourself with the trailer by reading this manual all the way through before
use. If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact your Burley
dealer.
Introduction
This manual is written sequentially to assist initial assembly. Your Burley-Solo is shipped 95% factory-assembled. You need only to mount the
reflectors, install the tongue, attach the wheels, side panels, roll bar and
safety flag, and snap the cover into place. Once you’ve read the safety
guidelines, you’re ready to go. Initial assembly should take 10-15 minutes.
Subsequent setting up and knockdown can easily be done in a couple of
minutes, no tools required.
Before trailering, be sure you have a thorough understanding of the safety
harness and of trailer hitch operation. Practice folding and unfolding your
trailer; it can easily be done in less than a minute, no tools required. Check
to see that the trailer wheels and hitch are securely attached. We again
request that you read this manual from start to finish before use, refering
to it as necessary in the future.
NOTE: Any reference to left or right is made in the direction of travel, as if
you were sitting in the child seat looking forward.
When Loaning or Selling Your Trailer
If you loan or sell your Burley-Solo, supply the new user with this manual.
They must familiarize themselves with all sections—especially sections “X.
Safety Guidelines” and “XI. Safety Checklists” prior to use. It is essential
that they understand the differences between riding a bicycle with a trailer
and without one. It is also essential that they understand correct wheel
attachment, setup, knockdown, and use of the harness, safety flag, cover,
and hitch. Always ensure that both adult and child are wearing helmets.
Never loan your trailer if it is need of maintenance or repair.

Setting Up and Knocking Down Your
Burley-Solo
Setting up or knocking down your Burley-Solo is accomplished in a few
easy steps involving the side rails, the roll bar and cover, the tongue, and
the safety flag.
Install Side Rails
Ensure that all four of the plastic side-panel hold-downs (C-shaped) on the
main frame are flipped to the outside of the Burley-Solo (see illustration
below). Slide each side rail down over the 2" tall aluminum side-rail guides
at the front and rear of each side of the main frame.

Side-Panel Hold-Down
(Snapped in Place)
Take care that you put the proper side-panel assembly on each side with
the correct side facing outward. The side rails slope gently toward the front
of the Burley-Solo, each with the trademark “Burley” facing outward. Next,
snap each side-panel assembly into place with the plastic side-panel holddowns at the front and rear of each side as shown on previous page.
All four side-panel hold-downs must be snapped in place before using trailer.
Otherwise side rails can shift or collapse resulting in serious injury.
Install Roll Bar and Cover
Locate the two roll-bar knobs in the hardware bag and the Wide Screen
2-in-1 Cover™. You’ll find the roll bar attached to the top of the fabric
child seat. Lay the cover over the side rails to ensure it is right side out,
and oriented so the rear snaps can be attached to the lower snap studs
at the rear of the Burley-Solo. Next, slip one of the roll-bar knobs through
one of the grommets on the cover. Align one end of the roll bar with its
corresponding hole on the side rail. Thread the roll-bar knob through one
side rail, and tighten it into the roll bar (see illustration below). Similarly,
thread the second roll-bar knob through the other grommet on the cover,
align the roll bar with the hole in the other side rail, and screw this roll-bar
knob into the roll bar. Carefully check that both roll-bar knobs are screwed
tightly into the roll bar.
Connect the snap hooks behind the seat to the D-Rings at the rear of the
Side Rail

side panels in the cargo area. Snap the mesh tailgate into place on the upper of the snap studs at the rear of the side rails. Ensure that the roll bar is
properly installed by snapping the cover snaps onto the lower snap studs at
the rear of your Burley-Solo, and snapping the cover snaps onto the snap
studs at the front of the trailer. Note, that once the tongue is installed the
cover must be carefully slipped over the end of the side rail inside of the
tongue receptacle at the left front of the trailer.
The Wide Screen 2-in-1 Cover™ is secured with snaps at the front and rear
of the trailer. When weather is fair, roll up the vinyl rain cover, and secure
it with the snaps. Also, release the rear snaps and roll up the back of the
cover to above the mesh tailgate for increased air flow.
To make your trailer more visible, clip a light into the light-holder tab sewn
on the upper part of the back of your cover. There are several brands of
inexpensive clip-on lights that will make your trailer more visible to motorists and other cyclists.
IMPORTANT: Always keep both snap hooks connected from seat to side panel
during use; release them only when knocking down your Burley-Solo.
Connect snap hooks on
back of seat to D-rings at
rear of side panels.
Install Tongue
To facilitate tongue installation, tip your Burley-Solo frame onto its back end.
If you are working on a rough or dirty surface, lay down a cloth or other
protective barrier so as not to soil your Burley-Solo. Installing your BurleySolo tongue involves four simple steps (see the following illustrations):
8
Tongue
Receptacle
1. Slide Tongue onto
Pivot Pin
4. Anchor Lock Pin
with Hairpin Cotter
3. Secure Tongue
with Lock Pin
2. Rotate Tongue
into Place
1. Slide the tongue onto the pivot pin at the left front.
2. Remove the hairpin cotter and lock pin from the front tongue receptacle, rotate the tongue up into place, and snap it into the two plastic
tongue receptacles.
3. Secure the tongue by pushing the lock pin fully into the front tongue
receptacle.
4. Rotate the lock pin and locate the hole in it which will be between the
receptacle and the trailer frame. Anchor the lock pin by inserting the
hairpin cotter all the way into the hole in the lock pin.
Lock pin & hairpin cotter
locked in place (viewed
from underside).
Never operate trailer without tongue lock pin and hairpin cotter locked in
place. Unlocked tongue can loosen or detach and cause accident resulting
in serious injury.
9
Installing the Safety Flag
Insert the safety flag pole into the vertical casing of the left
side panel on the outside of the aluminum side rail. Note
that the base of the flag pole slips into a pocket inside the
vertical casing of the side panel.
Knocking Down Your
Burley-Solo
Knocking down your Burley-Solo
is basically the reverse of setting
it up. Familiarize yourself with
setting up the trailer as outlined
in this section above.
Pocket to Secure
Base of Flag
To knock down your trailer:
1. Remove the safety flag.
2. Remove the tongue by pulling out the hairpin cotter and lock pin
and reversing the process described above. The trailer tongue can
be stored under the child seat.
3. Release the snap hooks behind the child seat. Unscrew the roll
bar knobs and place them in the pocket on the left side panel for
safekeeping. Stow the roll bar and the cover in the bottom of the
Burley-Solo along with the child seat.
4. Release the four side-panel hold-downs. Remove the side-panel
assemblies and lay them between the wheels on top of the main
frame.
5. We recommend leaving the wheels on when knocking down the
Burley-Solo; with the wheels on, it is small enough to transport easily
and reassembly is faster.
VI. Using the Seat Harness
IMPORTANT: The child seat is intended only for a child old enough to wear
a helmet and sit upright alone. Your child must have enough neck strength
to hold his or her head up while trailering.
Crotch strap O-ring must be positioned at child’s sternum to work correctly.
An O-ring positioned near child’s neck can cause discomfort or serious
injury. Check child periodically to ensure he/she is seated correctly.
10
Thread the shoulder strap thru the back of the O-ring located on the crotch
strap and connect buckle (A) at opposite shoulder. Tighten as necessary.
Adjust the crotch strap (B) so the O-ring is at the child’s sternum. Be sure to
connect and tighten the lap belt (C) after connecting the shoulder strap.
The straps and sliding buckles sewn to the backrest of the child seat are
part of a self-adjusting system that keeps the shoulder straps at the correct
height for children of various sizes. When you tighten the shoulder harness,
the sliding buckles allow the shoulder belts to come across the top of the
child’s shoulders, creating a snug fit. At the same time, the sliding buckles
keep the straps from falling off of the shoulders.
It is essential that both cyclist and children wear helmets when trailer is
in use. In event of accident, helmets can prevent or significantly reduce
injury.
Seat child in center of seat and use
right side shoulder strap and center
crotch strap. Fasten shoulder harness
to buckle at shoulder ( ). Adjust and
tighten at arrows ( ).
Crotch strap O-ring must meet at
child’s sternum.
Unhook seat divider strap from
snap hook at front of trailer.
IMPORTANT: Read and study sections “VII. Hitching the Burley-Solo to
Your Bicycle,” “X. Safety Guidelines,” and “XI. Safety Checklists” before
using your Burley-Solo.
VII. Hitching the Burley-Solo to Your
Bicycle
The trailer hitch was designed to quickly and safely attach to virtually all types
of bicycles. It is inserted in front of the left rear dropout of your bicycle.
Loosen the knob on the eyebolt until the two arms are spread fully apart.
Slip the lower hitch arm under the chain stay (A) and the upper arm above
the seat stay (B). (See illustration below.) Wedge the hitch cone all the way
back into the angle formed by the stays at the wheel. Tighten the knob until
the arms are firmly clamped against the stays. Wrap the safety strap around
11
the inside of the chain stay, over the hitch body, and back to the D-ring at
the end of the tongue.
Make sure that the cone is wedged securely into the stays. The knob should be
finger-tight; do not overtighten. The hitch should not move, but should allow
the bicycle complete movement, including lying it down on the ground. It
should clear any racks, bags, or fittings you have on your bicycle. If there
is any interference, contact your Burley dealer.
IMPORTANT: Remove trailer from your bicycle when it’s not in use to prevent
deforming the plastic hitch.
B
A
Do not operate trailer without hitch safety strap properly installed. A dangling
safety strap can contact spokes and damage rear wheel or cause accident
resulting in serious injury.
Hitch must seat properly into stays and not interfere with racks, bags, or
fittings. Inspect hitch and tongue frequently for damage or loose fasteners. Interfering parts or damaged hitch can cause accident resulting in
serious injury.
12
Do not use or store trailer at temperatures below 32˚ Fahrenheit as hitch
rubber flex connector can become brittle and possibly break, causing accident resulting in serious injury.
VIII. Trailer Maintenance and Care
Hitch and Tongue Maintenance
Your trailer is designed for low maintenance and easy care. Clean and grease
the eyebolt threads on the hitch periodically to ensure that the eyebolt knob
can be properly tightened.
Because of ultraviolet degradation, we recommend that the hitch be replaced every five years under normal use. In sunny or smoggy locations
or for trailers that are stored outdoors, the hitch should be replaced every
two to three years for safety. Replace your hitch or tongue if there are any
signs of damage—i.e., cracks, dents, scratches.
The Burley-Solo tongue pivot requires periodic lubrication to enable ease
of movement and prevent rust. Lubricate using a light machine oil once a
year for normal use, and every three months for heavier use—i.e., frequent
tongue removal or use in wet or salty conditions.
Wheel Replacement
IMPORTANT: Only the plastic wheels provided or specially manufactured
alloy spoked wheels manufactured by Burley will fit properly onto the axles
of your Burley-Solo.
The Burley-Solo tires for the plastic wheels are specifically designed to be
used with those wheels. In the event that replacement is necessary, contact
your Burley dealer.
Fabric/Shell Care
Your Burley-Solo is manufactured from a tough, durable packcloth. The
nylon fabric is coated for waterproofness and is highly resistant to fading.
The fabric can be easily cleaned with any mild soap or detergent and warm
13
water. For more persistent soil, use a nylon bristle brush. When not in use,
store your trailer in a dry, well-ventilated area; wipe it dry before storing to
avoid mildew.
Nylon fabric will eventually fade, especially when exposed to direct sunlight.
To extend the life of your fabric, as well as the hitch and other components,
do not store your trailer in direct sunlight. Do not use bleach for cleaning, as
it will damage the nylon. The nylon fabric is an important part of your trailer’s
structure, and provides a safety envelope for child passengers. Replace
any nylon fabric that is ripped, scuffed, or otherwise damaged.
Trailer with damaged or ripped fabric components can permit harmful contact between child and spinning spokes or moving pavement, and cause
serious injury. Replace damaged components.
IX. Safety Guidelines
Bicycling with a trailer is different from bicycling without one, in ways which
aren’t always obvious. It is therefore essential that you read and understand
all of the following safety guidelines—in addition to the warnings and instructions in the previous sections—prior to using your trailer. Before loaning
your trailer to others, make sure they too understand its proper, safe use.
Contact your dealer or Burley if any of these instructions are unclear.
Bicycling with a trailer, and bicycling in general, can be hazardous. Failure
to observe any of section “IX. Safety Guidelines” could result in accident
and serious injury or death.
Use Well-Maintained Bicycle and Trailer
Use a bicycle which is in good working condition, with good brakes. A frequent safety check of your bicycle is essential. Inspect and maintain your
trailer as outlined in section “X. Safety Checklists” of this manual. Have
your Burley dealer maintain and inspect your bicycle and trailer if you are
not qualified to do so.
14
Loading Your Trailer
Do not overload the trailer. Maximum trailer load limit for child and/or cargo
is 60 lbs. When placing child or cargo into the trailer, keep the load centered
or forward of the axle. Pack the load as low as possible and make sure
items cannot shift around. Loose, heavy objects can injure passenger in
event of a sudden stop or tip over.
Starting and Stopping
Because of the trailer’s additional weight, a bicycle pulling a trailer will be
slower to start up and stop, and because of its length it requires more time
to cross streets or paths. Your entire vehicle is heavier and less responsive.
This means you should think further ahead in anticipating stops, turns, and
starts. Note that your trailer extends out further on the left; allow for this difference when turning, passing pedestrians, or approaching obstacles (like
posts on bike paths). We recommend you spend some time experimenting
with a loaded trailer in an uncongested area to become familiar with how
your heavier, longer vehicle responds.
Prevent Trailer Tip Over
Just like automobile and motorcycle trailers, bicycle trailers can tip over. To
avoid overturning: Do not pull your trailer over curbs or hit holes or other
obstructions in the road. Instruct children not to bounce, rock, or lean, which
can cause a shift of weight. Do not make high-speed turns or descents
when pulling the trailer. Always corner with caution at 5 m.p.h. or less, as
the trailer cannot lean into a turn the way a bicycle can. Do not under any
circumstances travel faster than 15 m.p.h.—all road irregularities and your
slowness to react are greatly magnified.
Trailers can tip over causing damage to trailer and serious injury to cyclist
or passengers.
AVOID causes of tip over, especially:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Children leaning or bouncing
Hitting potholes, curbs, other road obstructions
Taking turns too fast
Sudden swerving
Off-banked turns
Improper wheel installation
Improper tire inflation
15
Fit, Alert, Adult Pilot
To safely pull a trailer, you need to be a fit, experienced cyclist. You must be
alert, have good sight and hearing, and adequate strength in your legs, arms,
and hands. Never allow a child or adolescent to pull your trailer because it
is likely that they lack the necessary physical ability and judgement.
No Headphones or Other Distractions
Do not bicycle or stroll with headphones, radios, or other distractions. You
must be able to hear surrounding traffic, and concentrate on safe bicycling
at all times.
No Motorized Vehicles
Your Burley-Solo is only intended for use with pedal-powered cycles; never
pull it with a motorized vehicle, as the increased acceleration and speed
could damage the trailer or cause the trailer to tip over.
Avoid Riding in Traffic
We recommend against riding in traffic. If you must ride in traffic, do not
pull your trailer on highways, busy streets, or on streets unsafe for bicycling
with children. Never assume that you will be given the right-of-way, even
if it is legally yours. Your child is a precious load; his or her safety should
not be entrusted to a car driver whose attention or regard for bike riders is
unknown. Use care when pulling your trailer on bike routes or along bike
lanes, especially at intersections.
Ride on Clean, Paved Surfaces
Your Burley-Solo is not intended for off-road use. Towing a child off road can
be especially dangerous. Any bumps or irregularities could cause tip over
and serious injury to the bicyclist or passenger, or damage to the trailer.
Cross over railroad tracks, curb cutouts, and road grooves at 90˚. Riding
parallel or at acute angle to such obstacles can cause a crash, resulting
in serious injury.
Riding When It’s Slippery
Be especially careful in wet, rainy, or freezing conditions. Your ability to
control and stop your bicycle when towing a trailer is greatly impaired. In
wet conditions apply your brakes periodically to be sure the rims and brake
pads are clear of water. Avoid forceful braking which can cause dangerous
skidding. Ride slowly and allow a greater margin of safety when starting,
stopping, and turning.
16
Do not ride on surfaces where sand, gravel, ice, oil, or other slippery substances are present; if you must pass over slippery surfaces, walk your
bike and trailer.
Navigating Curbs, Stairs, and Escalators
Never tow your trailer over curbs; rider must dismount and walk over any
curbs. If you must traverse stairs, prevent a hazardous loss of control: have
the child get out of the trailer and disconnect it from the bike; carefully roll
your trailer and bike, independently, up or down the stairs. Never take your
bike or trailer on escalators.
Use Cautiously with Pets
Your trailer is not designed to secure pets. A cat or other small pet can be
towed if they are in a pet carrier secured to the trailer frame. A sedate dog
can be towed seated on the trailer floor: add carpet for comfort, always
use a cover, and do not exceed 60 lbs. Never tow an excitable dog in your
trailer, as it may lunge or try to jump out causing the trailer to tip over or
other accident.
Avoid Riding at Night
Make every effort to schedule your rides so you are not pulling a trailer at
night. Because your vehicle is longer and heavier you will be less able to
react to unseen hazards. Automobile drivers may not be accustomed to
your longer vehicle and may not react to it appropriately. If you must ride
at night, wear bright, reflective clothing, use a bright headlight and a red
blinking taillight on your bike. Similarly, put a red blinking light in the lightholder tab sewn onto the back of your cover so you can be more easily
seen. Do not operate without properly attached reflectors; replace cracked
or missing reflectors.
Always Use Your Cover
Affix your Wide Screen 2-in-1 Cover™ to protect your child from flying debris
when pulling your trailer. Never leave a child unattended in direct sunlight
because heat build-up in the trailer can cause serious harm. Open or close
the vinyl cover, depending on the weather, to help keep your child cooler or
warmer. Check periodically to ensure that they are comfortable.
Cool Weather Use
When the temperature is 60-70˚ or colder you may be comfortable without
heavy clothing because your pedalling effort helps keep you warm. However,
17
when you consider the child’s inactivity sitting in the trailer—coupled with
a potential windchill factor—an extra sweater or jacket may be needed for
them to keep from getting too cold.
Wear Helmets
Numerous studies have shown that:
• Head injury is the leading cause of bicycling fatalities; and,
• Helmets prevent or reduce bicyclists’ head injuries.
For safety, it is essential that both cyclist and passengers use approved
bicycling helmets at all times. Don’t take chances.
Proper Wheels and Tires are Essential
Use only the factory-supplied wheels, and keep them properly maintained.
Inflate tires to 30–35 P.S.I. and check pressure before each use. Do not
use higher-pressure tires, as the trailer will be bouncy and prone to tip
over with light loads. We only recommend tires with street tread. Do not
use knobbies.
Know Your Trailer Hitch
Clamp the hitch securely to the bicycle frame, and check for a tight attachment each time you use the trailer. Refer to sections “VII. Hitching the
Burley-Solo to Your Bicycle” and “VIII. Trailer Maintenance and Care” of this
manual for proper installation, use and maintenance of your hitch.
Use Your Flag
Always use the safety flag—it’s an essential safety device. The moving flag
will help make you more visible to motorists and other cyclists.
Protect Your Child
When pulling a child, use the shoulder harness, lap belt, and child helmet at
all times. Always fasten the seat belt so that each child is held securely. For
maximum stability and safety, seat a single child in the center of the trailer.
Periodically check placement of shoulder straps, especially for a sleeping
child. Check that a child cannot put a finger into the wheel spokes.
Be aware that children get thirsty when riding in the trailer. Bring plenty of
water, especially on longer rides; keep a full water bottle in the trailer where
your children can easily quench their thirst when they desire.
18
Observe Age and Height Restrictions
The trailer seat is intended only for children old enough to wear a helmet and
sit upright alone. Your child must have adequate neck strength to hold his or
her head up while trailering. Check with your pediatrician if you are unsure
about your child’s ability to sit upright and hold his or her head up. Never
carry a child whose sitting height (with helmet) is above the roll bar, because
their chance of injury is significantly higher in the event of tip over.
Follow the Rules of the Road
Bicycles are vehicles, and are required to observe all rules of the road.
Always signal turns and stops; ride with both hands on the handlebars except when signalling. Scan ahead for dangerous situations, and anticipate
turning traffic. Watch out for parked cars and opening doors. Never run
stop signals, and never ride against oncoming traffic. On bike paths, give
audible warning when passing pedestrians from behind. If you are not aware
of your local and state bicycle regulations, contact your nearby police or
motor-vehicles office for more information. Refer to the owner’s manual of
your lead bicycle for safe cycling information.
Have Fun Defensively
Besides being practical and easy-to-use, the Burley-Solo allows people
and children to get outdoors for some fun together, rain or shine. The fact
that you’re getting exercise and fresh air at the same time is an added
benefit! So, whether you’re going down to the corner store, across town
on a picnic, or off for an extended vacation, enjoy your Burley-Solo and
remember . . .
ALWAYS RIDE DEFENSIVELY!
