Flatbed is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trailer! I rode with it for 500 miles from Ohio to New York, and it worked great! I had two large waterproof bags that fit pretty snugly onto the trailer, and I just bungees them to the frame. I also had a string of lights around the frame for visibility. I had probably 50lb of stuff. I definitely noticed the difference riding without it, but it handled great, and I never had any problem steering or braking. I got a nail in my tire, so the quick release really helped. I'm more than satisfied! I don't think another trailer would have worked nearly as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trailer If you're looking for a quality bike trailer, buy this one. I regularly use it to haul big loads of groceries, big bags of dog food, and many other random things. It's been great. My only (minor) complaint is I wish there was more support in front and behind the axle. I'm afraid of putting too much weight on the vinyl bottom. It hasn't caused any damage, I just want this to last as long as possible. Overall, great product. There are cheaper options by other companies, but they're not worth it. Read the reviews, and you'll see why.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used the flatbed for two years now. It is primarily my family's "vacation assault vehicle". Once on the cape, the trailer carries all manor of coolers, folding chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. (Yea I know...The Clampitt's go biking).The flatbed can haul a full grocery load back to camp and it is yet to meet an errand it can't handle. At home it is my alternative to the car for grocery shopping and most household errands.While I am yet to take it for a multi-day bicycle camping trip, that is on my agenda for next summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is scary, I probably should have remembered I was using it before I thought someone was following me (I wish I could say it only happened once). I built a PVC pipe cargo bed and lined the bottom with plastic trellis to carry rocks, blocks and yard waste. It pops out and back to the stream line grocery getter. Other than freaking out dogs and occasionally me, it's been a great trailer. Very light weight and easy to forget it's there. The tires need to be slimed but other than that it's ready work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really like the trailer but I am concerned about a couple of things. The material that makes the floor seems like it probably will not last very long. It is too flexible, the last time I used it I strapped a plastic container on it with probably 10 pounds in it and strapped it down and after the short ride the material seemed to have stretched a little and held that shape. Also the tires that come on the wheels will need to be upgraded as soon as possible. They are the cheapest tired I've ever seen. I will be putting some schwalbe marathon tires on it so I don't have to worry about them. Other than that the trailer is really nice and rides well. I love the push button wheels, I can't think of an easier quick release system. I'm looking forward to some good trips with it next year

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just in Case Your Cargo Bike Can't Haul Enough About 3 months ago I bought a Burley Flatbed in order to expand my cargo bike's hauling capability. The first -- and probably best -- test of the Flatbed involved hauling old carpet to the landfill. The Flatbed withstood the whole ordeal with flying colors. Easy to clean and maintain and also very capable thanks to its low center of gravity it is definitely a worthwhile addition for cargo cyclists. In the cast of non-cargo bikes, it can handle heavier and bulkier loads than simple racks and bags.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great multi-use trailer that is lightweight and follows extremely well. It's been great for running errands around town and hauling gear to the parks/beaches. The compact design also makes it easy for storing when not in use. There aren't many tie-down points which makes securing the load a challenge at times (I recommend carrying some bungees or elastic cargo net). Other than that, it's a great little trailer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had been looking a long time for the perfect trailer. This one is it. The trailer is tremendous. Excellent variety. Ultra-light. Perfect "Riding-Feeling". Due to the absence of a closen container I use a big foldable plastic box, fixing it with two straps. Happy not to have a car in a big city, I use the trailer for big family shopping as well as during freetime-activities. Probably my best purchase in 2015.

Do you make heavier duty trailers? Maybe custom?

Asked by: Loch
Our highest weight capacity for our trailers is 100lbs. All of our trailers go through rigorous testing and validation before going to market, so unfortunately we do not manufacture custom trailers.

Can this be purchased with the 16+ WHEEL KIT instead of the 16″ spoked alloy wheels . i have no use for 2 sets of wheels

Asked by: MSBCV
The Flatbed comes with the standard 16" road wheels. The 16+ Wheel Kit is only available as an accessory.
