Burley have updated their affordable Minnow single-child kids bike trailer, renaming it the Burley Bee. Aside from the name, little has changed save for the price (+$10) and color. However, for those with a larger family, a two-child version is now available for $299.99. In other news, the popular D’Lite X that doubles as a stroller is now available as a single-child bike trailer too.

The Burley Bee is their most affordable kids bike trailer by a good $100 margin. It is a bike-only trailer, unlike the more expensive Honey Bee, D’Lite X, Encore X and Cub that also double up as strollers. Burley have introduced the Bee as both a single-child and two-child kids bike trailer, with just a $20 price difference between the two.

The interior seated height and width come in at 69.9cm and 57.1cm, respectively

The Bee runs 20″ wheels that feature a push button release for quick removal. A 16″ plus sized wheel kit is a $149.99 upgrade if you plan to take the bike trailer off-roading or even over snowy ground.

Hammock style seats provide passive suspension for riders’ comfort

An adjustable five-point harness system secures your child in the cockpit, which is itself encapsulated by a full internal aluminum roll cage for protection in an accident. UPF 50+ tinted windows and a 600D polyester wind and water-resistant cover shield the occupant from the elements. The front cover and rear windows can open up to maximize ventilation. The Bee also comes with a safety flag for visibility.

The Burley Bee has ample storage space with interior pockets in both the cargo and child seating area. When you’re off the bike, a handy flex connector allows bike to lay flat while the trailer remains upright.

Burley D’Lite X Single

Padded seats, headrests, adjustable suspension and reclining seats make for what should be a very comfortable ride for your child when you venture off the sidewalk onto rougher terrain.

Anyone ever built a kid trailer with built in electric assist? Just enough push to counter the weight of the kid and trailer? You could use a sensor at the hitch to vary the assist based on pull, kind of the opposite of a hydraulic trailer brake system. If no one’s done it yet, just throw me a finder’s fee when you sell the company…
