Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Dream Come True 4 Large Retired Hiking Woof I wanted a "cart" for my 14 year old wolf hybrid. At 70 pounds, she takes up more room than you would think. She needed to lay down comfortably in the cart. I wanted durable construction to survive her claws (although I added a pad for her comfort). I wanted wheels that could roll over most terrain (roads, gravel, dirt, streams). I wanted enough side wall to keep my woof in the cart and feel that she was safe, but allow her to see everything around her. I wanted a hitch to the bike that was an easy take on/take off. The hitch turned out to be a real seller for me, as sometimes my bike would fall over (when loading/unloading my woof), but the hitch was flexible, so the cart did not flip or tilt when the bike fell over. After the bike fell the first time, my woof was unfazed and did not move from her laying down position. The Burley Flatbed met all of my requirements. With my wolf-hybrid in the cart and myself pedaling to adventures unknown - Her last days were smiling and nose high in the air. Now, I use the cart for grocery/farmer's market shopping. Eventually, the dream road trip will utilize this amazing cart more efficiently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile, multiple uses, multiple bikes! It was Flatbed vs. Nomad. Read other reviews and decided on Flatbed for its versatility and ease of transport and storage. Will be using it for 3 different bikes; 2-wheeled road touring, bikepacking, and my newest ride, a recumbent trike. I am using a large North Face base camp, waterproof duffle bag for all my camping gear. Still leaves room for smaller, narrower items such as compact camp chair, bear keg for food, etc. The two wheel design pulls easily, especially with the recumbent trike. Made one upgrade; switched to Schwalbe Marathon tires for better durability. Can easily change out my cargo bag for a medium sized cooler for hauling micro brews and brats for the weekend picnic. Overall, AWESOME TRAILER!

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 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, light and practical When my kid was growing up, we used a Burley to haul her everywhere. When it was time for cargo-hauling, I knew I wanted a Burley again, because of that great past experience. The only thing I'd improve is to have easier tie-down locations built-in. Or ways to add different carrying options to the system. I can make all of those modifications, but the product would be more user-friendly if this was included. For example, a front and rear rail would be fantastic to use when the cargo fits inside the trailer foot print. I have to make my own.

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 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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight trailer This is the lightest trailer you can currently buy for your bike, once you factor in the features of the side rails; add two 8' tiedowns and your around 13 pounds. I was worried about it being a fabric bottom, but it has held up dragging it over the briars through the woods. It is light enough to unhook and lift over obstacles with your gear still inside. The side rails are important to lash everything in securely, and I have carried 130 pounds with no problems. The whole thing packs down flat and stores nicely on top of a kayak. Things that could be better...I placed ducktape patches on the underside, between the mounts that hold the axle assembly, and the cloth material of the bottom of the trailer, to prevent wear at its greatest point. The hitch functions great, but a redesign with a ball hitch will pivot better for being pinched in between steep hills; this way the rubber hitch will not flex and break. Also, it needs a flag on the left side; the side closest to traffic passing you; so the constantly distracted drivers will see it flapping away. Now, offer it in a titanium version that weighs 6 pounds, for $400, and you will rule the bike trailer industry for awhile to come. Please ship me one for the idea. :)
