What customers say about "Key Specs"
Thule Cadence Two Child Carrier Bicycle Trailer
  • I only have my 2.5 year son in it and he weighs around 35lbs now, but I have loaded it up with a 90lb sandbag just to see what the weight would feel like along seeing how the trailer handled the weight.
  • My son is 38 lbs and he's really easy to pull in this trailor. Another plus is how easy it is to take apart for storage.
  • Only regret is that I didn't buy this years ago. I can fit my 5 year old and three year old in comfortably. Pulls easily and stores well. Love the green too:)
  • Love it, so does our child. Also great for toting things around.
  • We absolutely love this bicycle trailer and so do our kids. This was extremely easy to set up. It took less than 5 minutes to get this out of the box and set up. It was easy to hook up to the bike.
Burley Design Bee Bike Trailer
  • I bought my Burley Bee a few months ago and use it just about every day to pick up my two kids from school.
  • You can fit a lot in there! Even with 1 kid, I can put extra groceries on the seat too.
  • It attaches easily, rides smoothly and has plenty of space for 2 kids!
  • This thing is fantastic for a couple of small children.
  • Even with 75 pounds worth of kids behind me, I do not notice much of a difference except when going up steep inclines.

What customers say about "Construction"
Thule Cadence Two Child Carrier Bicycle Trailer
  • The quality is very good and it mounted to my Specialized Stumpjumper bike very easily.
  • It really felt no different minus the extra pedaling force. The tires absorb bumps pretty good. Also keep in mind you don't need to air them up like road bike tires.
  • The trailer to bike hook up is pretty heavy duty. The bracket that mounts to the bike is a solid piece of heavy steel.
  • Easy to fold up, Children love to ride in it! Easy to attach to our bike. Can't find a negative!!!
  • Great quality. Very happy we went with the entry price point Thule vs a comparable priced retail brand.
Burley Design Bee Bike Trailer
  • I absolutely love the ease and durability of burley trailers. The quick fold design has been particularly useful.
  • Easy to put together and store. And no problem attaching to the bike.
  • It is super light so biking with my kids is not to strenuous. It is super quick and easy to attach to my bike as well.
  • The tires are easy to remove and the trailer folds down perfectly to fit in the back of my 4Runner.
  • It's easy enough to make fit in the back of a small SUV - and with a bit more effort, can be folded up nicely with all its components inside for storage.

What customers say about "Features"
Thule Cadence Two Child Carrier Bicycle Trailer
  • The seating position is good but I put a thick blanket underneath the seat for cushion and support. My son kept slouching down in the seat and it looked super uncomfortable.
  • The color of the trailer is a nice bright green so people can see you, the flag is a nice touch as well. I added rear blinking lights to the trailer just for more added caution.
  • This trailor has plenty of ventilation and I like that the plastic flap can be qucikly put down in a rainstorm. Also this trailor is very nimble.
  • Great product. Comfortable for my baby boy. He loves going on bike rides with me. Very safe
  • Easy to assemble, Light weight and fun for everyone!
Burley Design Bee Bike Trailer
  • This is a great trailer overall. Room to store stuff, the kid fits well and is comfortable, pretty good ventilation.
  • We love the extra room. You don't even notice it when you're towing.
  • I like the big cargo space in back and the windshield that folds up to let a breeze in.
  • We also love the cargo space in the back. It is more than we need but it is nice knowing we can tow around snacks, water, or anything else we need.
  • The extra room in back for her back back and lunch box is just what we were looking for!
