What customers say about "Key Specs"
Burley Design Encore Child Bike Trailer, Blue
  • Great design, only a few things I might not love about it. It is pretty small. My kids are twins about 20lbs a piece and they don't have much elbow room.
  • Love this for grandchild (purchased when 9mnths and now 10mnths). Use w Burley soft support seat for now for extra support ( although baby sits and holds head well).
  • Absolutely loooove this! We bought the attachment to turn it into a stroller and It's so easy to push, even with my 6 and 4 year old in it.
  • My son loves to ride and I feel safe having him behind the bike.
  • Works great as a trailer, not so great as a stroller. The handle shifts when you push on it, doesn't actually lock. Makes it hard to lift the front wheel to turn.
Burley Design Honey Bee Kids' Trailer
  • I have about a year with my Burley Honey Bee. It's light and comfy for my boys ages 3 and 1.
  • After lot's of research, the Honey Bee was the only bike trailer that had everything we wanted.
  • I bought this at the beginning of the summer so I could ride my bike, while my 4 yr old daughter rides hers, and my 18 mo old son could enjoy a ride also.
  • My 8-month-old son seems comfortable while riding, even on gravel paths! There is a ton of storage space for toys, blankets and extra layers.
  • We feel it's very safe & secure for our daughters, and it rides smooth.

What customers say about "Construction"
Burley Design Encore Child Bike Trailer, Blue
  • Enjoying it almost every weekend. Some times the push button is not easy to press and release. But other than that I am very satisfied with my purchase of this product.
  • Burley quality is amazing. This buggy is built for easy and safety. I bought this for my daughter and she loves it.
  • Wheels have quick release. Sun visor for the riders is fantastic. Storage in the back. Aluminum frame is square tube strong and really light weight.
  • When you fold the "rollbar/jogging handle" back, it seems like it folds out of the way but doesn't quite stay where expected, and has fallen out before. I wish there was a better place to pass a lock through.
  • Small con here I wish there was a velcro patch towards the bottom of the passenger cover on each side to aid in making it a little tighter.

  • I can be set up and ready to ride in 1-2 minutes and the ride is incredibly smooth.
  • We are really happy with the build and design.
  • It folds up nice and flat for winter storage as well.
  • So lightweight, easy to break down and transport. My kids have PLENTY of room and the storage in the back is fabulous!
  • It works great as a trailer and as a stroller. The trailer is very light.

What customers say about "Features"
Burley Design Encore Child Bike Trailer, Blue
  • Lots of storage space w just one baby inside. Easy to collapse & put back together.
  • Overall we like the Encore. However, we wish it were a bit easier to change from bike tow, to jogging stroller, to stroller.
  • This model also has many options like a cross country option... It feels like it will last for generations. It's that good!
  • I wish there was a way to un latch the back plastic "window" to allow for more airflow on warmer days, though my daughter doesn't complain about it being too hot in there.
  • Was slightly disappointed that the trailer flag was split apart when it arrived but thankfully that is a minor detail.

  • One of the great features of the Honey Bee is that it easily converts to a stroller.
  • The stroller itself is as good a ride as any stroller we've tried. The ride is smooth, lots of storage, and folds up for easy travel.
  • The fact that it is convertible to a stroller was a big selling point to us as the combo saved us quite a bit!
  • Kids enjoy riding in it because they have enough space and each side has little pouches for them to put their snacks/cups in.
  • There is sizeable storage to fit some things and the ease of mounting/dismounting the stroller from the receiver was simple.
