    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!

  3. 5 out of 5


    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 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!

  18. 5 out of 5


    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!!!

  24. 5 out of 5


    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.

  26. 5 out of 5


    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!

  29. 4 out of 5


    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.

  30. 5 out of 5


    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.

  31. 2 out of 5


    I really like this trailer EXCEPT … the bags are very poor quality. The original bags split open at multiple seams. Burley did send new bags to replace, but they are so poorly designed that the attachment points are sewn in backwards and stretch the bags in a awkward way. I talked to Burley customer service about this but they would only say that the bags would be replaced if they failed.

  32. 5 out of 5


    We use the Travoy as our “car” for grocery shopping. We have been intentionally car-free since 2011. It’s all about the simpler, less hurried life. The Travoy enables this better way for us. We love it. It’s cheap when you compare it with the price of a car.

    I use the travoy to take my golf clubs to the golf course. I am only 2 miles from the course so I did not want to drive my car that short distance. I have also used it for grocery shopping and now that they charge for bags at our grocery stores, I will use the bike with the bags more often. The only problem I have had is blown tires when I use it in the high summer heat that we have here in Coachella Valley, so I don’t use t as often as I do in the cooler months. It rolls very easily with my golf bag strapped on that I barely notice that I am towing something.

  34. 5 out of 5


    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my Travoy! I love its flexibility in that I can carry well-organized loads in the bags that were made for the Travoy, or strap basically anything to the frame for easy transport. I have transported crazy things like large fans, a knee scooter, 50 pound bags of dog food, along with many, many groceries for years using my Travoy trailer. I love that it stands upright while I’m loading it, and doesn’t knock my bike down while at rest (like a single-wheel trailer would). It has tons of room and I feel very independent with it.
    I also love how easy it is to take to stores. When I go shopping at the grocery store with it, it quickly snaps off my bike and I hold the handle at hip level while the trailer trails behind. I can push the grocery cart with one hand/arm, and drag the trailer with the other, very easily and it follows close behind, tracking my movement in crowded stores.
    I do have one suggestion for an accessory that would be super helpful for me. I use my bike for commuting to work every day, and don’t need the trailer for that, so I use panniers. Unfortunately the trailer does not work simultaneously with my rear wheel rack, so I’ve jury rigged a solution: I have a piece of L-shaped thick metal wire (once was a peg board holder for heavy drapery sample books, so is very strong) strapped flat on the back of my rear rack, sticking upright at the back-most portion of the rear rack. I put the Travoy holder on that upright portion. The trailer hauls fine, but there are two issues: 1. my holder isn’t that stable, so it torques, and I’ve had a few capsizing events when going over bumps with a heavy load strapped too high (since the holder itself is strapped to my somewhat unstable metal piece), and 2. My metal piece goes vertically, but the Travoy holder is designed for a bike seat post that slants backwards a bit, so the angle for the attaching pin is slightly off and I think it puts strain on my pin. I would love it if the Burley engineers (I hope you’re listening!) could make a good attachment for existing rear racks, so the Travoy could be used in tandem with racks & panniers. It’s really handy then… I use my racks and panniers for everyday commuting, and the Travoy for shopping, without having to unscrew anything.
    Engineers, I would also love it if that adaptor for rear racks that you make could also have a good post for mounting a rear light… basically it should have a post like a seat post.
    In summary, I’m so glad I bought my Travoy and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to use their bike for shopping or hauling.

    (forgot to add in my review) – I even used this trailer as a hand cart to haul a complete Thanksgiving dinner into my mother’s nursing home!

    I really like the overall design and function of this handy trailer. I have two attachments for quick mounting on different bikes. Others have borrowed and been very happy with and quick to adapt to this system. I’ve used it to haul groceries, compost, folding bikes, trampolines, and all sorts of things. I would like to see a better set up to keep the bag off the wheels. Mine wore a hole very quickly after purchase but it luckily it hasn’t got worse over time. Also, the straps & clip system could use some work to get a better snug fit. I would buy again and recommend to others. Well done.

    Very good product, worth every penny spent. I bought my first Travoy in 2012. Sadly it was stolen out of a locked garage in 2014. I bought my second Travoy in 2015. Very happy with it. I purchased the upper and lower market bags. I use it daily for commuting, and shopping. My only constructive criticism in the small loops for the tail light(s). As the Travoy leans forward when pulled, the red lights I put on it may not be visible to vehicles coming up behind me. I’d like better placement for those loops, and/or an easy place to mount a light with its straps. Currently I must remove my rain cover pouch to mount a light on the cross bar there. Other than that, A+. Reflective stripes are good too. I do a lot of night time riding, so this is important to me.

    Before I bought the trailer, I read the gushing chorus of praise. Hauls my bowling ball! Attracts handsome friends! Can fly! Now that I’ve had it a couple years, I admit it’s all true, every word. It snaps on and off the bike with one hand, it serves as a grocery cart, it can carry odd shaped objects, it’s surprisingly strong, it’s surprisingly lightweight. I use the bag that came with it and mounted an old side basket to the upper part with the included straps. It is very very good, but nothing is perfect. Here’s a few places where the design might improve: 1. the wheels rub holes in the bag, unless there is something in the bag. I keep a styrofoam cooler in mine all the time, which solves the problem. A design solution might be little plastic gussets between the wheels and the bag. 2. It is possible to tip over. I’ve done it several times by cutting too close to the curb when turning. The good news is that it just slides to a stop and nothing bad happens. The solution is for me to stop cutting too close to curbs. 3. The foam handle at the hitch wore out and fell off. I started to replace it but found that it wasn’t really needed anyway. 4. The reflectors down by the wheels aren’t very effective. Mine fell off. 5. To use a bike as a serious vehicle, you have to have serious lights. This trailer makes it possible to go car free, but it could use a better place to put a good quality blinkie light. These are minor problems that developed over several years of steady use, and all were easy to remedy. It’s a really great trailer.

    Not very well engineered. Has major flaws. In the real world in real streets the Travoy is not that great. Burley needs better engineers.

      Can you be specific about what you don’t like?

    I use the cart for work hauling my 4 by 5camera and lenses with tripod. In all 40lbs, For many years I was a park ranger running mush of Marylands outdoor education and trail building designs, If I could mae two suggestions, First add a safety flasher that can be used on the trailer and the hitch when the trailer is not in use, Presently I am using a blackburn button style that fits the trailer frame and seat post. Secondly using a spare Kelty Tioga pack hip belt with a bracket I fashioned You may hike with the trailer behind you, This has proven to work well in cities and trails where a bike is too much a pain. Also I have photos of the trailer in action hauling my camera. Send me an address and contact and will mail as they are analog In all great trailer replacing my old Cannondale trailer from the 70s which is of a similar design. The bike and trailer are heading west and oversees next year. Be well and enjoy life Eric Cook

    Love my Travoy. I don’t ride a bike; I attached the trailer hitch to a modified tool belt and drag the Travoy behind me. Easily walk two or three miles to shop. I live in earthquake country so it is also our “bug out” trailer. Go out and buy one today.

    Would love if u guys could develop one with a 100pound weight capacity

    • :


      We have definitely considered upping the weight capacity of several of our products in the past. The problem really is that the weight limits are less about what the products can hold and are more about safe handling characteristics. For example on the Travoy, since it is attached to the seatpost, if you loaded up the Travoy with 200lbs and then went down a hill fast and braked hard, having that much weight and inertia pushing forward on your seatpost could cause the back tire to lift, which would be bad (loss of ability to brake and control). The trailers that are attached to the rear axle have higher capacities because they are connected at a lower center of gravity so this is less of an issue, but is still a big factor in deciding weight capacity. If you are going for a higher weight capacity I would recommend looking at the Flatbed, Nomad, or child trailers that can convert to cargo trailers by lowering the seats (Encore, D’Lite etc).

    I pull my Travoy with my Bike Friday Tikit, and the trailer does double duty as my bundle buggy. Over the last three or four years I have carried vegetables from the market, but have also hauled 60 pounds of compost, straw bales (one bale at a time), and even a Christmas tree on my Travoy. In a Canadian winter!!

    No one else has mentioned how well-balanced the loaded trailer is. When you tip a loaded trailer into its pulling position (around the 45 degree angle) it’s light as a feather and highly maneuverable. Absolutely the best thing I have ever bought (even better than my Bike Friday Tikit.)

    I have one suggestion to increase stability of the upright trailer by replacing the post on the front of the trailer with the kickstand for the pet trailer. The little post has collapsed more than once when I have had a heavy load and the trailer has tipped over onto the bags. Not a huge deal but something to be aware of when transporting heavy things. This year I have also noticed a little reluctance sometimes with the hinge that folds the hitch down, but I have been able to persuade the fold and unfold to work.

    I looked at trailers for a long, long time before choosing the Travoy. I almost didn’t buy this trailer because it was made in Thailand. Despite the fact that I LOVE this trailer I still feel terrible about that part. I have given the product five stars today but the Thailand part is minus 15 stars. I hope you will bring the manufacturing of this product back to North America, where it belongs.

    I’ve just got my TRAVOY BURLEY bike trailer. Honestly, i’ve never been so delighted. It really is so easy to pull out and put back. I’ve cycled round the block with this and it’s smooth and easy. This has transformed the way I will do cycle/camping trips. Now I can take the train to remote places..why? because in the UK you can’t take the usual bike trailers on trains but NOW all I have to do is unhook the trailer and put it in the standard luggage rack of the train. I’m not limited by location or by renting cars to get me to remote places with the camping equipment. Brilliant design. Tracy, London, UK

    (verified owner):

    I have used a 2 wheel trailer with my touring bike for extended (more than 2 months) self-contained camping trips and have always been a proponent of using a trailer instead of the unwieldy front panniers. The Travoy is a JOY with my wonderful folding Brompton Bike — for self-contained camping and just around town. One of the issues some have expressed – “wheels rub against the bag when full”- I have easily solved using a Topeak Cargo Net (from REI). I hook it under the lower tray – hooks over the axle close to the frame and then up as high as I need. If I put the top hooks at the midpoint – I can easily access my gear in the lower ‘carry bag’ – I didn’t buy any of the other bags available just used the one that came with the Travoy. ALSO – for those of you that are Brompton owners — I found that I can clip my T-bag right to the upper Travoy buttons – the shoulder strap attachment loops on the bag easily fit right over the buttons. I leave the frame right on the T-bag so it is ready to go back on the Brompton so it is easily attached to bike when I am at camp and want to ride out to the store or just sight-see without the Travoy. And of course – because the Travoy also folds up – I can hop a train, bus, taxi or plane What a great combo!!
    Perfect for many of my friends who are now riding and are older who have trouble carrying their baggage into the BnB’s we all like to stay at while cycling.
    Suggestion” Somehow – extendable bottom ‘tray’ so my Brompton could be ‘hooked’ on with ease. Those of us that are older and riding Bromptons still have some difficulty carrying the folded bike up stairs or for distances.

    An excellent product, with no significant flaws. It trailers easily on our bike(s) and unless really loaded is hardly noticeable when peddling uphill. It also makes a great shopping cart. The only flaw we have found – if you can call it that – is that the shopping bags flop closed and won’t stay open to add items to them unless held open. I know, a trivial problem.

    I’ve been using my Travoy for two years and I love it, the only time I can tell it’s behind my bike is when I’m pulling a lot of weight. I’m not a large person — 5’4 and 120 lbs but I can use it for a weeks worth of groceries (one person) or six weeks of dog food (3 dogs and 40 lbs of food) plus a few groceries in the top bag. It’s such a great hand cart I can go downtown and do multiple errands without a second person to guard the goods and it hooks easily to the bike with one hand even when fully loaded. I’ve experienced only minor issues with it: 1) the wheels rub on the bag but the webbing and fasteners that come with the bag solve that problem by acting like a belt. It took awhile for me to figure it out, the instructions could be a little more clear on that. 2) the foot rest on the bottom is hard to move, my hands aren’t strong enough so I just leave it out, I suppose I could use a lubricant but I never think about it. 3) the grommet on the bottom bag drawstring came loose pretty early on, not enough fabric to secure it and 4) the foam on the handle ripped but I’m going to duct tape it. I use the handle a lot, it’s easier to use as a handcart that way. I don’t need to fold it up a lot, I just roll it into my kitchen (four steps up the back porch) with all my groceries, unload the goods, and wheel it into the garage. I love that thing!

    I love my Travoy!
    No more heavy backpacks, or tiny little loads on my bike rack. Yep, the Travoy will always have a spot in my garage.
    I also really like the ease of repair and availability of parts and options. But bringing home 60ibs of stuff all at once, OH YEAH

    Love our Travoy! We purchased our Travoy to carry beach chairs, umbrella and a small cooler to the beach. It works like a charm and the fact that you can pull it on the sand easily is a plus. I’d recommend it to anyone looking to haul stuff more easily. Thank you Burley for another great product.

    I love my Travoy. I took a very long time to make this purchase. It seemed expensive but now that I’ve owned it for almost a year I think it’s a total bargain. Sturdy, really well thought out, super easy to use. I only wish that I could haul two of them at a time! I ride a very small framed road bike that is very lightweight. The Travoy has plenty of clearance over my wheel. It pulls so well that I often forget I have it hitched up. It absolutely never destabilizes my bike – it follows so smoothly. I really really can not imagine not having a Travoy now. I use it for hauling all sorts of things: groceries, packages, sporting gear, garage sale purchases, pet food, backpack for hikes, picnics, even a Christmas tree!

    I often use my Travoy for toting golf clubs to the course where I detach it and use it as a hand cart. I always get positive comments and sometimes a picture taken. The trailer is so well engineered – strong construction but lightweight and smartly designed for storage. A great product!

    I feel the design of the trailer could be improved by keeping the wheels away from the cargo. I have fabricated a foam core box in the supplied bag that helps keep things centered and away from the wheels.

    The design for a trailer overall is very smart! Previously I used a backpack and a big bike trunk on my daily commute before moving to the Travoy. It is very important to keep a few thing in mind with a trailer. You have an extra two wheels of resistance and a large wind catcher. A few of these points were know to me before I purchased. I just want to emphasize how important they are to follow.

    Keep the bulk of the weight as low as possible.
    Do NOT take corners at the same speed you have been able to handle in the past.
    You MUST keep the bike as straight up-right as possible when you stand to quickly accelerate.
    Go up curbs straight on not an angle, thing ramp.
    The above failures on my part have caused my trailer to roll. I have never crashed because of the beautiful design of the pivoting hitch attachment. The rainfly is a work of art and I use it to cover my full trailer all the time. After these rules were broken I now have many holes in my bag and rainfly as well as some ground down areas on the frame.

    I carry more stuff everyday than I was able to do before the Travoy which was a MAJOR factor in choosing my purchase. The fact that you can quickly disconnect the trailer with my valuable cargo (Camera Gear) and head into a store was another factor.

    Because a want to have ALL the gear with me I would buy the trailer again BUT heed my warning or you will trash up your trailer, rainfly and bag.
