Congratulations!

trailer owners worldwide. Every effort has been made to
ensure your purchase is a top-quality, thoroughly-tested
design, ready to provide many years and miles of happy,
safe trailering.
Please go to www.burley.com or contact us at
[email protected] to register your warranty information.
IMPORTANT
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH
YOUR BURLEY BY READING THIS ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE USE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR
AUTHORIZED BURLEY DEALER OR VISIT WWW.BURLEY.COM.
Introduction
5. The maximum age for passengers is 6 years. Never carry
children whose seated height (with helmet) exceeds
4 inches (100mm) below the internal roll bar.
6. Fasten the seat belt and shoulder harnesses so that each
child is held securely. Seat a single child in the center.
Periodically check the placement of the shoulder straps,
especially on sleeping children.
7. Make sure children cannot put a finger into the
wheel spokes.
8. Instruct children not to bounce or lean, as a weight shift
could cause the trailer to tip over.
9. To protect children from flying debris, always use your
cover. Never leave children unattended. Check children
frequently, especially during hot or cold weather.
10.Observe recommended speed limits: a maximum of
15 mph (24 km/h) on smooth, straight roads and
5 mph (8 km/h) or less when turning or on uneven roads.
Once you’ve done the initial assembly and read the safety
guidelines, you’re ready to go! Before trailering, be sure you
have the safety harness, seat belt, tow bar, trailer wheels and
hitch securely attached.
Note:Any reference to left or right is made in direction of
travel, as if you were standing behind the trailer,
looking forward.
11.Set your parking brake before removing your children
or cargo.
Safety Guidelines
15. Clamp the hitch securely to the bicycle frame, and check
for a tight attachment before each ride.
WARNING
BICYCLING WITH A TRAILER, AND BICYCLING IN GENERAL, CAN
BE HAZARDOUS. FAILURE TO OBSERVE ANY OF THE SAFETY
GUIDELINES IN THIS MANUAL COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENT
AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
12.Never pull your trailer with a motorized vehicle.
13.The cyclist and passengers must wear helmets.
14.Only use factory-supplied wheels, with the tires inflated
to the pressure recommended on the tire side wall. Check
pressure before each use. Do not use higher-pressure or
knobby tires.
16. Use the safety flag.
17. Do not make alterations to the trailer. Contact your
Authorized Burley Dealer or go to www.burley.com for
replacement of any damaged, worn-out or missing parts.
18. Do not use your trailer on icy roads or when inclement
weather makes cycling hazardous.
19.The use of a mirror on your bicycle is recommended.
1. Inspect and maintain your bicycle and trailer regularly. See
“Safety Checklists” on page 10.
2. Because of the trailer’s additional weight, a bicycle pulling
a trailer is heavier and less responsive. Avoid sudden
swerving, rocks and curbs. Experiment with the loaded
trailer in an uncongested area until you become familiar
with it.
3. The total weight limit for the trailer, children and/or
cargo is 75 lbs (34 kg) for single passenger trailers and
100 lbs (40 kg by law in Europe) for double passenger
trailers. Load children and/or cargo securely in the center
of the trailer, forward of the axle and as low as possible.
20.For emergencies, breakdowns or flat tires, pull completely
off the road and move your children to a safe area before
doing repairs.

evaluate anyone who is of questionable developmental

Maintenance and Storage
Hitch and Tow Bar Maintenance
Store trailer indoors if possible. Do not use or store trailer at temperatures below 32˚F (0°C), as hitch flex connector can
become brittle and possibly break, causing an accident resulting in serious injury.
Fabric Care
Hand wash fabric parts with mild soap or detergent and warm water. For heavy soiling, use a nylon bristle brush. Do not use
bleach. Line-dry trailer cover. Polyester fabric will eventually fade, especially when exposed to direct sunlight. Wipe dry
(to help avoid mildew) and store out of direct sunlight in a dry, well ventilated area, or use a Burley Trailer Storage Cover to
protect your trailer. Clean windows with a damp soft cloth. Cover window may crack if trailer is stored below 32°F (0°C). Replace
any damaged parts.
