    Best cycling accessory I have purchased. We have carried food and folding chairs to picnics, all manor of camp gear up to 40 miles a day for short camp trips, and commuted 10 miles a day 5-6 days week for 4 years. It looks a little worn but functions like new. Folds up quick and easy to go in car or public transport. I wheel it through the grocery store instead of grocer cart. Surprising sturdy and durable. Has been a real blessing family activities and group rides. The frame most be a little over engineered as the Travoy as a few trips the load exceeded specs, traveling slow and short distances of course. Even my none cycling wife now believes the Travoy was a good investment. Took her a while but now she gets it.

    Best accessory ever!! I use it to haul my cello to school everyday for orchestra practice and it’s perfect!! Super light and it fits my bike which only has 20″ wheels!

    I use my Travoy for grocery and other shopping errands. Instead of biking or using a long board I walk and pull the Travoy by hand. Main weekly shopping visits 2 stores and results in 9 – 10 miles of walking for the day. The Travoy is the perfect accessory for car lite living.

    All I can say is WOW, I used my Travoy for the first time today and it worked just great! All my shopping trips will be so much easier now not to mention my frequent outdoor adventures. No more backpacking just enough. Again, Wow. You folks at Burley have made a great product!

    I am not sure if it is fitted to a 20″ wheel folding bicycle .The lowest hitch height to the stem of a bicycle could be ?

    • :

      The Travoy Hitch has a suggested mounting height on the seat post of 28-34 inches. The Rack Mount can also be used as a mounting point for the Travoy Hitch if desired.

    Amazing bicycle trailer! I use it with a bicycle Merida TFS-300 (wheels 26 “), and with the folding bike Genius Mobiky (wheels 12″). Very comfortable, easy rolls, I am delighted with this trailer. My photos Travoy + Mobiky can be viewed at the link http://www.touran-club.ru/f/talks/8427-pokupaem-velosiped/p35 in the message #348-#349.

    This trailer is brilliant! I have used it twice every week for over a year, once to cycle to work with my laptop and change of clothes etc. and then when I go dinghy sailing with a bag full of kit (life jackets, wetsuit, boots, gloves and spray top etc.). You have to watch out when crossing a road and stopping in the central reservation as the combination of trailer and bike is quite long! Also I have had the trailer “capsize” once as I cut the corner and the wheel went over the kerb! Does slow you down if there is a head wind. Only fault I can find is that you need to keep any bags away from the trailer wheels as I have had a couple holes burned into a bag by the wheels. Burley – Please make and addition to the trailer to protect the luggage from the wheels. Otherwise worth the investment as it saves driving short distances and you don’t have problems parking!

    I almost didn’t write a review, because I don’t have much to the accolades posted here. Let me add that this is absolutely the best bicycle trailer design, ever! I’ve used other systems, and this is so easy and intuitive to use. I try to limit grocery shopping by car to once a month or so for bulky items, and then go once a week or so with my Travoy trailer. It is fantastic for that use. Sometimes, the loaded bag will get out of kilter and the rear wheels of the Travoy will rub on the nylon, which entails a stop to rearrange the bag, but it is no big deal. At some point, I’ll put a hard box of some kind under the bag, so it won’t be an issue. The rain cover works well, and stores right there unobtrusively. I’ve pulled the Travoy behind a single speed, a three-speed, and a seven speed bicycle. I’ve gotten attachments for the racks, in my case. I’ve been able to carry bags that I already had on the Travoy in addition to those that came with it. The trailer always causes folks to stop and check it out. I’ve started up many conversations when people see how easy it is to use. I also use mine sans velocipede to simply haul items by hand as a hand truck/dolly, to transport tools around my yard, and since it folds up, I’ve even tossed it into the trunk of the car to go haul brewing grains and other bulky items for home brewing or other hobbies. Next time I go on a trip, I’ll try to fit minimal luggage into the Travoy and go with my bicycle and Travoy trailer. I’ve certainly already used it for a couple overnight cycling excursions.

    We are live aboard (sailboat) cruisers and mostly use this has a hand truck for carrying groceries and other items to and from our boat and dinghy. We have trailered it behind our fold-up bikes and it is easy to pull. The bag that comes with it does get into the wheels and rubs but we pull and tie it back to avoid any damage. A nice feature for us is storage; the wheels come off with the push of a button, folds up easily and stows in its own bag! We highly recommend this product!

    Absolutely LOVE it ..hope they come out with a heavy duty version that can carry 250 pounds or more :)

    I have used my Travoy regularly for the past two years. I am constantly praising it’s versatility and ease of use. I use it for groceries, cases of beer, packages to Fedex and materials from Home Depot. When it’s not behind my Xootr Swift folding bike, it’s used as our laundry basket which I can wheel down to my laundry room. Anyone who has a bike should have a Travoy. It’s an amazing combination of engineering, design and function. GREAT JOB, BURLEY!

    This trailer is amazing– the capability to unclip it and take it with me has essential for bike touring that includes locking my bike someplace and transporting my pack by hand. For trips that include train trips and flights, it’s also a great way to treat your gear like a rolling suitcase. With a normal trailer, I would never be able to manage getting my bike on a train. My only real complaint is that there is a lot of plastic, so when one of the joints cracks I guess that will be it. That said, I’ve used the trailer heavily for three years and haven’t had any problems. Also, keeping the bags free of the wheels is annoying– even the provided messenger bag is too wide and rubs if you’re not careful.

    I purchased the Travoy and wow, i love it. I go to the grocery store, people look at me and I think, yeah I am the ” Bee’s Knee’s . 😉

    The Travoy is the most practical bike trailer I own. I either walk or bike everywhere and use it about equally for both. The top and bottom grocery bags make it super convenient to shop with.

  15. 5 out of 5


    We bought the travoy a couple of year ago to use while living on our canal boat. The travoy has made life much easier for us, leaving more time to enjoy other pursuits. It is often quite a distance to markets and fuel, so we hitch the travoy to a foldable bike. The travoy pulls easily and handles well whether empty or loaded when cycling on a variety of roads or trails. At other times we pull the travoy by hand when shopping is closer. We can haul 40 litres of diesel (or wine) quite effortlessly. Space is an issue on the boat, and the travoy folds up quickly and easily, and fits nicely behind our entry ladder. People have offered to buy the travoy from us on the spot, but that is definitely not an option. We did not purchase the upper grocery bag, but feel it would be a great addition, and will purchase that next.

    This product is great, but has some drawbacks in its design.

    That drawback is the hinges used in folding the trailer up to hand-carry. They come out of adjustment or “stretch” (however you want to say it) and make it near to impossible to fold. In fact, I do not and cannot fold my Travoy anymore because the hinges either do not work right or are broken all together. (The trailer still locks in the utility position so I simply never fold it anymore.) I looked for maintenance instructions or at least an exploded diagram of the trailer, but none could be found. If you buy this and plan to maintain it yourself, forget it. The manufacturer gives you no sort of instruction on how to do it or offer any replacement parts.

    Please do not get me wrong here. I love this product. I use it several times a week. However if the portability feature is the main reason for buying, you may eventually come up disappointed with this part of the design. I can make it work. I just lock the Travoy to a post when I go in a store, but that is NOT how it is designed to be used.

    • :

      Allen, sorry to hear you are having trouble with the hinges. Please contact customer service so we can help you out with that. You are probably still under warranty, and we also have replacement parts available.

    I had been attempting to make my own version of this trailer for about a year before it was introduced. When I first saw a Travoy I realized that this is what I had been trying to make, so I purchased one soon after. I love it! I used to travel for work in the company truck, so I would use the Travoy to bring my suitcase with me. I live in Chicago and ride over 5 miles to work and the Travoy seemed to handle whatever I threw at it. I also didn’t have access to a car for the first 6 years I lived here, so I would use the Travoy for laundry and groceries.

    As far as the product itself, it works as easily as is displayed in the instructions. It actually seems to work better when it has more weight in it. I actually had it capsize when it was empty and I hit a pothole- thanks Chicago! I added a few bungees to my Travoy for extra tie down capabilities. This comes in handy because the bag that comes with the Travoy will occasionally flair out and rub the wheels. I think I have owned my Travoy for 4 years and it has been great. One alan bolt came out of the mounting arm, but it is the same setup as a recessed caliper break on a bike so I had extras! I would suggest that you tighten the bolts every so often.

    Overall, I am very happy with this product and will continue to use it until it falls apart!

    Absolutely worth it in spite of the fact that within a month a tire had burned a hole in the bag from a loose off center load. I wish there was some sort of fender.
    Even when I’m not taking the bike I take it shopping. Fill it with groceries, fold the top two sections down and it fits in the back of a Smart for 2 car standing up!

    This is one of the best products I have ever bought. It’s also one of the best engineering ideas I’ve encountered. I love my Travoy! I use it with my Tern foldup and mainly use it for getting to and from the golf course with my clubs. But earlier this year I cycled 300 miles round the north of Scotland with it laden to the hilt and it managed brilliantly. You hardly know it’s there, even with a 60kg load. Easy to use, put up and put away and always getting compliments from other envious cyclists. Couldn’t recommend it enough. Thanks guys.

    I’ve used the Travoy for a year now and I can not image going grocery shopping without it anymore. I’ve got the grocery bags and the raincover (which is quite really useful in the Netherlands, you never know when it will rain). I also use it for the transport of homebacked cakes and trips to the postal office. It is amazing how much does fit in. The only problem I had so far was that the seam of one of the clips got loose. I got it repaired at a store with heavy duty sawing machines. Now everything is perfectly fine. I would recommend everyone with a bike to buy one. Save yourselves the parking costs and get some extra workout by shopping with your bike.

    Every time I take my Travoy to the grocery store, somebody comments about it. I park, unhitch the Travoy, and voila, it is my shopping cart! Customers and clerks alike ask all kinds of questions about it, so I have given out the Burley URL many times. I’ve had my trailer for a couple of years now and it is an indispensable part of my urban, car-free lifestyle.

  22. 5 out of 5


    I’ve been using this for a year now for grocery shopping and going to the market. It’s great at cause I have some back problems and runabout kids. I can put whatever I buy in there and focus on keeping an eye on the kids, no back problems, I hoop it up to the bicycle whenever we go buy something. Not cheap, but the best baggage cart for the bicycle I could find.

    I was looking for a sturdy and comfortable trailer to walk to the store with, and I couldn’t believe my good luck when I found the Travoy – which can also be pulled by a bike! I use it both as a walking and biking trailer, and it functions beautifully in both situations. I pull it behind a Dahon folding bike, the the trailer tracks so well that I hardly know it’s there. Occasionally when I’m shopping in smaller stores, I wish that the Travoy was a little narrower, and, as others have mentioned, the wheels rubbing on the bottom bag (I have the Market Bags) is an issue. But, those are trivial matters – the Burley Travoy is a fantastic product! It has made it so much easier for me to stay out of my car. Thank you Burley!!!

    We love this trailer! Not only do we use it for our golf bags, we take it shopping and for camping trips! It is so stable and rides so easily we hardly even notice we’re pulling any thing! We love it so much we have one un Wales and one in Florida.

  25. 5 out of 5


    Absolutely love my Travoy! I’ve used it touring and around town for shopping. I even use it when I run to the store without my bike. My only suggestion would be to make a quick release seatpost attachment.

    I’ve had my Travoy for 3 years now, and it still is a fantastic commuting and shopping vehicle. Burley has really thought of everything with this trailer, it’s extremely intuitive and versatile. I’ve taken it over curbs and loaded it just a bit beyond capacity, and other than shifting down a gear or two for the added weight, I almost don’t know it’s there. When I first got it, I literally stopped to look back to make sure it hadn’t detached. The rain fly is super easy to take out and roll up again, and even has a tab for a seat-post tail light! I can park right in the middle of the farmer’s market, while others have to park up to 8 blocks away. I also have the commuter bags, which are great for my laptop, lunch, and the ability to stop at the store on my way home. I’m super happy with this trailer, it’s really expanded my ability to use my bike for all transport! The only thing I would want in addition is a place to put my U-lock separate from the bag compartments, as I either have to rearrange when I go back to my bike, or suffer squished bread and veggies.

    I’ve owned mine for several years now, and all I can say is this is an amazing piece of design by Burley, they really outdid themselves on this one. It works–and works so well-because Burley thought so much about the details in designing this bike trailer. First, it’s incredibly light. Friends who are curious about it will pick it up and not believe how light it is. Second, the functional design ergonomics are so well thought-out. The locking folding handles that permit one to collapse the trailer into a small square for carrying into the office or store, the folding ‘kick stand’ that permits it to stand upright, the quick-release trailer hitch, the quick release (one button) wheel axles, and so on. Also, it handles really well on the bike while riding, you barely notice you’re pulling a trailer, even with a fair amount of weight. It’s certainly a lot more stable than having heavy panniers strapped to your bike. When you get to your destination, the trailer magically transforms into a shopping cart by simply turning down the trailer extension, it’s that easy.

    Just a quick comment to the view that a pair of panniers would be much cheaper and could do the same thing as the Burley Travoy. This is just plain silly, for one you will see that a good pair of panniers alone will cost you almost $200. When you add $50 for the bike rack to carry the panniers, then you’re close to the Travoy’s price. And you’re not getting near the functionality: they can’t hold near as much or as diverse a range of things as the Travoy.

    Really like my Travoy for groceries. Though I wish it was a little stronger. Also fenders would be nice to keep the load from rubbing tires , and water spray during rains . Maybe make the tires so they don’t wobble so much too , and instead of plastic clips on bags for attaching to Travoy, use something metal , sail boat shop would likely have. I replaced broken clip with a stainless steel one with a barrel tightener [ oval shaped}. Small size seems to be the one, just kinda rock it on when attaching to Travoy. Makes my bike ride even better with the Travo attached. Thanks!

    I like this trailer a lot. It’s lightweight, easy to attach and detach, and holds a lot of material. Also works well with bungee cords. I have transported cartons of paper goods bungeed to the Travoy.

    My only warning is that, if you stuff the bag too full, the sides bulge out and interfere with the wheels. I take care with the way I pack the bag and that mostly avoids the problem, unless the contents shift as I’m riding.

    I love my Travoy. Very light but very sturdy. Easy to pull and the hitch is totally user friendly. I would like a better way to attach a rear light for high visibility.
