The Burley Minnow is a single seat kids bike trailer. Upholding the Burley Standard for safety, the Minnow has: a full aluminum roll cage, 5-point harness system and passes rigorous Burley Standard durability testing. It has a comfortable hammock style seat, fold flat design, water-resistant cover, and large cargo area. The Minnow is a bike only trailer. If you are looking for a quality trailer with all the essentials the Minnow is for you.
Safety strap to secure trailer to bike adds reassuring security. Two things I recommend/suggest that Burley look into: 1) The seat and seat back positioning/support needs improvement. My 9 month old child is in the 40th percentile for size and could use a little more support to keep him from slumping forward. 2) A helmet opening at head-height in the seatback so it doesn't push a child's helmet forward over his/her face. For the user: If you get a bike trailer for your kids--this one or another--get a mirror that attaches to your helmet so you can safely monitor them.
I am a very experienced cyclist and for my first child, we used a traditional child seat mounted on a rack. The set-up worked fine, but I was always concerned with balance, as the high mounted seat really changed how my bike handled. With my second child, we went to this trailer. Amazing. It pulls effortless and has no impact on the handling of the bike. I feel its much safer and likely more comfortable for my child. The only downside is that I miss my little guys hands on my back when I peddle. Very happy with the minnow!
We have the Burley D'Lite and use it daily. Our little ones started to get too heavy to tow on a bike together so we bought the Minnow so we could separate them. The Burley brand is awesome. Very comfortable for our kids and excellent quality worth the price.
The Minnow is small, sturdy and safe. It's pretty much exactly what I was looking for to ferry my daughter to preschool on my way to work. My girl is happy and comfy riding, and I feel comfortable pulling her around in it. It's also added a little extra quad work - as a side benefit - to my daily commute.
The quality of the Minnow is fantastic. It is solidly built, everything fits together as it should, it is easy to use, and it offers a secure environment for a child. The only issue we have with the minnow is its lack of suspension. If you are interested in this stroller, be aware that it is only for smooth roads. Dirt or gravel roads, and certainly trails are off limits as the ride becomes exceptionally bumpy. We were hoping to be able to not spend the extra money for a suspension model, but if we want to depart the pavement, we will have to pony up the cash for a different trailer.
