Burley Flatbed Cargo Trailer
We were looking for a multi-purpose bike trailer. While we were perfectly happy with our panniers for our daily shopping, touring and bike-packing trips, we also frequently were missing the possibility to transport a bigger load when it comes to the more bulky stuff.
When it comes to bike trailers, there is of course also a wide variety of possibilities but looking at our specific needs, we came to a short list of 3, whereby the Burley seemed to deliver the right mix of quality, affordability and multi-functionality.
Specifically for our shopping, we made a wooden crate which fits perfectly on the frame and between the side bars.
To secure the trailer while left alone, we use the long version of the Tex-Lock eyelet with U-lock. It secures both the bike and trailer and the lock is ART2 approved.
