Solo™ is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded every expectation After owning this for a month and briefly owning a Burley Bee before I am extremely satisfied. We live in the city and bike almost everywhere so since our new daughter was born I’ve been tossing ideas of how to get her out on the bike with me. I was hesitant of a trailer; to me they always seemed obnoxious, big, clunky, and a PITA to tow around. So I went through all the available options of attachable seats, carriers, cargo bikes, etc. Finally I decided I didn’t feel comfortable having her strapped to the bike and exposed. Not only for safety, but also because we live in Minnesota and it’s cold and windy most of the year. The local bike shop had Burley Bees on sale so I went and bought one. I had it for about a week and while I quickly started to love the trailer, I started to dislike many things about it. For one the roads aren’t smooth around here, and the basic Bee has no suspension, so it was very jarring on my daughter and I could tell she wasn’t comfortable. Another thing that impeded her comfort was being crammed against the side. Since it’s made for two kids and the sides aren’t bowed out like the higher end models she was right up against the side bar. Also it has the basic seat and for a 6 month old this wasn’t gonna cut it. Also I felt a lot of vibration thought my bike, even on my old (and incredibly comfortable) hand lugged steel Trek. My newer bikes it was almost unbearable, (I’m 6’6” and 200lbs so I already put a lot of stress on a bike and need to inflate the tires to a high psi). However owning that for a short time made me realize I was a big fan of the trailer and after doing some research the Solo would fix all my problems. So after selling the Bee privately for what I paid (yes they have great resale) I bought the Solo. The suspension is excellent, my daughter is very comfortable now and so am I. The seat system is a ton better, and having it adjustable is great. She is much happier sitting in the center and having room on either side for her arms, dolls, Sophie, whatever… I can also tell the difference in reduced width both in navigating through tight places and the lower wind resistance. Handling wise they were both phenomenal; I can tell they’re there going uphill, but it rolls great and tracks great. I love the storage in the back, it’s great to be able to throw gear back there, the diaper bag, food, basically all the stuff I would cram on my back. Plus with the lay flat seat it makes a fantastic package hauler, so I am now able to make UPS deliveries faster with the bike then having to try and navigate traffic and detours downtown. Would I buy this over the Bee? If you have a very young child, or only one child to transport, and you bike a lot, or have rough surfaces to navigate; yes definitely! If you love biking, do yourself a favor and just cough up the extra money, the enjoyment after just one month was worth the price and with how well this is built I expect it will last a lifetime. I already looking forward to winter and picking up the fat tire set! One last thing; The connection to the bike is awesome, it’s very easy to connect. The hitch that stays on the bike is very minimal and being able to purchase extras to put on other bikes makes swapping a ton easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband got the Solo for me as a gift. I gulped when I saw the price tag but I have to say the quality of the product is outstanding and well worth the price. I've had mine for 6 months and wish I had gotten one sooner for my carting my kid. I feel safe using it with my four year old in tow. The ride is smooth, really smooth. It is easy to collapse and reopen the buggy, and also attach and remove from my bike (without assistance from a second hand!). It works great with my 15 year old Diamondback cheap-o bike. No problems. Zero complaints. For folks that want safety, this product is top notch. The four old has loved it since she first stepped in!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I have it 4 stars because I have the jogger attachement and it's horrible. I can't even turn Without lifting the wheel up. This is an inconvenience and a waste of money. I think I would have been better of purchasing the waist attachment and running with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice trailer, but not perfect. We bought this to replace an older Encore. Compared to that trailer, the Solo is improved in a few areas: much better harness and seat, the wheels don't back out of the axle tube over rough terrain, and it's easier to fold. In addition to the more secure harness, we bought this for the suspension. It's a very simple system, and while it does take some edge off, it's not all that effective. It would be nice if Burley made a more off-road focused trailer... more wheel travel, larger tires, independent suspension. But for how compact and durable it looks to be, it's not bad at all. I did notice that the wheels have fewer spokes and tires are extremely cheap when compared to my older Burley, and this one has more plastic parts (vs. aluminum) and doesn't feel quite as well made. The wheels also rock up and down a little bit once installed, but that looks to be a consequence of the simple and easy attachment method and plastic axle sleeve. They haven't almost fallen out like the old trailer though, so I guess I can't really complain! One thing to note - the (double?) roll bars work, as does the harness. I've had the misfortune of flipping the trailer on to the side, and aside from my child being startled (and then giggling) and scratching up the jogging/rollbar, no harm was done. This should be obvious, but this is not as stable as wider trailers like the Encore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the trailer great quality I would not even look at another brand after having this one. My daughter falls asleep every time we put here in there. I do wish there was a different system that keeps the trailer centered behind the bike as it is roughly 3 to 4" to one side and is very irritating when riding on trail that has bollards/ posts to go threw. Other than that twos great and I would recommend this trailer to anyone that is willing to pay for quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is our second Burley trailer, we have been very impressed with the quality of our Nomad trailer (with the exception of those little bands that hold the cover on) and when we found out we were going to have a Grand child we knew we needed to get a Solo! We have loved taking him on rides and can't say enough about our Burley, love the velcro and solid catches for the cover, great improvement over our Nomad's bands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've had our Solo for three years now and put countless miles on it. The materials and construction are top notch. It's easy to break down and set up. It has also been easy to adjust as my son has grown. Not long after purchasing, I bought the jogger accessory for my wife. That accessory is a bit more troublesome but not terribly so. Over all, it has been a great purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Produce This bike trailer folds up nice and is perfect for the bike path. I added some velcro to the bottom so that when it folded the trunk flap could wrap over the end and hold it closed. The seating could be improved. A small wrap around head rest of some sort and the ability to recline the seat would be nice.
