The Burley Bee bike trailer is most likely the best kids’ bike trailer in the US. At just the three-hundred dollar mark, the trailer comes with everything you need for a safe and convenient way of commuting. There is a 5-point harness system and a full aluminum roll cage for added security. 20-inch pneumatic tires, SPF 30 fabric, and tinted windows add another layer of security. Other safety features include yellow color and reflectors on wheels.
The outer layer is made of water-resistant materials, and besides the screen mesh, there’s also a waterproof cover to protect from the elements. What’s also great is obviously the idea that the trailer can be folded down to a very small size when transporting, and everything disassembles quickly, too. This Burley double bike trailer is indeed one of the best buys you can imagine, and the trailers hold their value rather well over time.

The Minnow also has wheel guards that are quite useful when cycling in both urban areas (Signposts) and in the forest (Trees). The water-resistant 600-denier polyester cover and seat fabric with a fly mesh with a rain cover complete the trailer as what you’d want to expect from an all-inclusive kids’ bike trailer.

Also, as of standard these days, the trailer hitch has also a safety leash if that super rare occasion should anything break off.
