I bought this trailer so that I could transport my two children to nursery (3 and 1 year olds). I also bought the burley snuggler as well to provide a bit more protection for my youngest. When it arrived I thought that I would need to watch the video, but it is very simple and intuitive to put together and feels very sturdy.
It is attached to my road-bike temporarily (I think I would prefer to pull this on the back of a heavier bike, but that's a personal preference) and is very easy to manage.
The first ride to nursery I asked my husband to follow so that he could gauge for me the distance I needed to stay from the pavement edge and to make sure that all the fittings were intact!

Pros:
easy to put together
snug fit, but room still for the two boys and once the snuggler is removed when my youngest is 2 there will be more space
easy to fit
kids enjoy it

cons:
I haven't come across any yet but will re-post if I do

We got this over a year ago and it has been used non-stop. As my kids are getting bigger it is a bit tight but they still like to "snuggle" in there so we are all good. I am so happy I didnt go for a cheaper make because the Bee has been worth every penny!

Pros. Light weight, easy to manoeuvre, easy to wash, easy to fold and unfold and east to push with the load aswell.

Cons. Bouncy ride, can't use with the front hood off as this will bring all the debris and dust in, hence child won't enjoy looking out as much as coverage from the hood

Nice bike trailer 28 May 2012
By Stephen M. Charme - Published on Amazon.com
Thirty years ago when my son and daughter were growing up my wife and I each had a bike seat on the back of our bikes, and often took some 20+ mile rides with them, sometimes on very hilly terrain. Those rear end bike seats work, and are still used by many parents because they are relatively inexpensive compared to a bike trailer, and also pose no issues for riding in tight spots (more on that below).

But when it came to buying something for my sixteen month old granddaughter, I recognized that although my reflexes and physical ability are still pretty good, there is a difference from thirty years ago, and I did not feel comfortable putting my granddaughter in one of those rear seats.

If the bike goes down with a rear seat, then so does the child in the back (never happened to me or my wife when my children were growing up), whereas if the bike goes down with this particular trailer, the trailer will remain standing. That's a really important safety feature to me (more about that below). I confirmed it while working on my bike in my driveway while the bike was attached to the trailer, and accidentally knocked the bike over (no, my granddaughter was not in the trailer at the time). I immediately looked to see what happened to the trailer--and saw that it was still standing in place.

No doubt this bike trailer is much safer than a rear seat, but which model to buy. The Bee is the bottom of the line of Burley's trailers. Does that mean it is not durable or made well? Absolutely not. What it does mean is that it lacks certain features of the more expensive models--none of which mattered to me, but let me tell you what they are.

The main feature of the more expensive Burley trailers is the ability to buy accessories that will convert them to regular strollers or jogging strollers. Before you decide on such an all in one solution, however, consider the following.

My granddaughter lives in Manhattan and already has the Bugaboo and more travel friendly McLaren (I have reviewed both on Amazon). Many restaurants that she goes to with her parents require the strollers to be folded. While it is certainly not difficult to fold this bike trailer for storage or if you are taking a trip, it is not something that you would want to do on a routine basis because it is just not as simple as with other strollers. And if you live in the suburbs (as I do) where people generally drive rather than walk to most places, it would be much less practical to have a stroller where you need to remove the wheels to fold the stroller and also make sure that they are properly inflated so that you don't wind up with a flat.

As for having something that doubles as a jogging stroller with the proper attachment, that means you first have to buy something that can also be used as a regular stroller, and you will pay dearly for that ability. In addition, I am a serious runner and use the BOB Revolution SE stroller for jogging and off road use (I have reviewed it on Amazon--it can also be used as a regular stroller, though I don't recommend it for that purpose). If you like to go running with your child, the BOB is the way to go.

So now let's assume you are not looking for a multi-use bike carrier, but just one that can be used to safely transport your child while bike riding. I really like the Bee. Here is why:

1. This is well constructed and uses quality materials.

2. This is easy to set up and fold for storage or for a trip. The wheels are easily removed and put on with literally the push of a button (but nothing in the design suggests that they could release accidentally), and the bars on top of the trailer easily pop in and out of place (but are held securely while riding with metal clasps).

3. The wheels must be kept properly inflated just like your bike's tires, but doing so is not difficult.

4. There is UV tinted clear plastic on either side of the trailer, and there is a mesh cover that goes over the front of the trailer to keep out bugs and any road debris. It easily connects and detaches with elastic loops. For inclement or cold weather, there is a plastic weather shield that is easily rolled up out of the way when not in use.

5. There is a rear storage area right behind the seats (I got the two child version) that is easily accessible with a flap that is held in place by both velcro and elastic loops, so no danger of it flapping around when you are riding.

6. There is a separate shoulder harness and waist belt for each child that are easy to use. No, they are not padded (which is a feature in more expensive models), but they are comfortable enough for my granddaughter for the 30-45 minute bike rides that my wife and I take with her. Likewise the seating area has no padding, but is the same kind of stretched nylon found in some utility wagons. Once again, this is more than adequate for bike riding.

7. You can buy an extra Burley hitch on Amazon (currently for twenty-one dollars) to install on a second bike, and that way you can use the trailer on more than one bike (I got a hitch for my wife's bike). Switching the trailer to another bike is simple if each has a hitch. All you have to do is undo one quick release pin and the safety strap.

8. This comes with a simple safety flag that is visible and something that I always use.

9. If you have an accident and your bike goes down on a level path, the trailer will remain standing. You can test this for yourself by laying your bike down on the ground with the trailer attached. That is a critical safety feature for me.

Here are some things to keep in mind if you buy this trailer:

1. One of the local parks that I ride in has intermittent wooden posts on the park paths to ensure that cars from the adjacent parking lots don't go on those paths. The trailer fits through, but I have to make sure that I have my bike centered. Likewise, there is a stone wall on one side of the path that abuts a creek. I was a little off center when I rode past it and nicked the trailer bar. Not a big deal, but a reminder to stay centered. Finally I crossed a small bridge in the park that goes over a river, and needed to make a sharp right turn onto the path when the bridge ended. My wife, who was riding in back of me, yelled out that the right tire of the trailer barely cleared the end of the bridge when I turned. So just keep in mind that you are pulling a trailer, especially when passing other people who are walking/jogging/ bike riding on a bike path.

2. The cargo area is directly behind the seating area. If you put a box of crackers in there, the point of the box could easily go into your child's back if you went down a hill. My suggestion is to put a towel where the back of the seating area is to serve as a buffer, and to use cooler bags rather than stow things loose.

3. The seating area per child is about 10 inches. I have only used this with one child, but I can tell you that with two children this would be a very snug fit.

4. Because this is fully enclosed on the top and both sides, the only ventilation comes from the front (unlike a regular stroller where you can pull back the sunshade and get ventilation from the top, front and sides. Using the protective mesh screen cuts down the airflow even more. What does this mean? It is much warmer inside the trailer than what the bike rider feels. Sometimes on quiet local streets I fold the mesh screen back to give my granddaughter more air. Also, be very careful if riding in hot humid weather to periodically check your child and bring plenty of water to drink.

Bottom line: I bought this two child trailer on sale at my local REI for less than the price on Amazon. So far I am very happy with it. No, this doesn't have all the padding of her car seat or other strollers, but frankly I don't find it necessary. She seems comfortable and happy. I definitely would NOT recommend spending double for a higher end model just to get some extra padding and the ability to buy accessories that turn the trailer into a regular stroller or jogging stroller.

Update August 22, 2013: My 2 year 7 month old granddaughter still enjoys riding in this, and it still works great.

Update March 12, 2014: I recently received the Thule Chinook2 Child Carrier for Stroll/Jog, which can be used as a regular stroller, for running and for bicycle riding with the optional Thule Chariot Chinook Bicycle Trailer Kit. It's not something that I would have bought on my own because it's incredibly expensive. So why do I mention it? Because while it is superior to the Burley Bee in terms of padding and overall construction, and my 3 year 2 month old granddaughter calls it "comfy" to sit in with her 10 month old brother, as a practical matter unless money is no object the Burley Bee will work just fine unless you plan on some really long bicycle rides, and costs five times less than the Thule with the bike kit.

Almost 3 years and running. 9 Mar. 2011
By Les Argotiers - Published on Amazon.com
WANNA SKIP THROUGH MY REVIEW AND GET A PROS AND CONS LIST? IT'S AT THE BOTTOM!

Out of the box, this trailer is a hex key away from taking it for a night on the town. The only thing needed to be attached is the wheel guards and Burley is kind enough to provide the perfect sized hex key to accomplish such a task.

First of all, I want to touch on the specifications. The wheels are made of a strong plastic and come equipped with pneumatic 20" wheels that detach with a simple push of a button. These don't seem to come off easy unless you are fully pressing the button. Of course, what can I say, I just received the bike trailer last night. The inside (which I plan to get a photo of for the customer images) is wide enough to fit two children but as mentioned in other reviews, it seems a little tight for my 2 children and the stuffed giraffe to tag along. The Bee's straps seem cheap when compared to the more expensive models and I guess I don't see 5 thin straps that are likely the same make up of those found in a shopping cart as a FIVE POINT PROTECTION HARNESS (Grr! SO tough). Of course with a little know how and a little DIY spirit, it can be improved significantly. My biggest gripe, (quite petty but still a factor) is that there is only one mesh cup holder on one side. As you can imagine, this can get a kid all fired up and ready to argue. (ex. "BUT DADDDDDDDDDDDDDD, I WANT A PLACE TO PUT MY JUICE TOOOOOOOOO") Of course, maybe I have extraordinarily bratty kids.

As for the storage space, it is small but it is nice. I can fit two good sized reusable bags when I shop with my kids at the co-op. If I only have one with me he can befriend a third bag on the hammock seat.(Of course, that would require him to leave the stuffed giraffe home)

In all, the biggest question you probably have is, "Will my child(ren) like it and how protected are they?" The first time I took Jonah out, he was very wary of the "bike car", but once he got in and saw that it moved his eyes lit up with excitement. We got him dressed (It's winter here still) and pack hot cocoa and a couple blankets (all of which fit comfortably) then headed on our way. It was a little awkward at first but after a few blocks all I heard beckoning from the Bee was "Faster! Faster!". So yes he enjoyed it. The latter question seems to be an easy one. Yes, the roll cage is sturdy. I dropped it from the upper story to be sure. It survived. It may collapse if it is being dragged under a car but let's hope no one is in that situation.

OVERALL, compared to the Schwinns in your local Wal-Mart and the Insteps of your local Target, this trailer is terrific. I would rather pay the extra $100 if I am assured that my kids are safe and I feel they are safe in my Burley Bee. Price-wise, I feel it presently is worth $200 easy but with a few improvements like duel seat belts, shoulder pads, two cup holders, and maybe if it were wider by 3-4 inches, it would live up to the $250 price tag. But of course for a name like burley, you will pay that extra $50 for nothing. If you can't afford a Chariot or high-end Burley, buy the bee. It's a good trailer.

PROS AND CONS FOR THE LAZY:

Pros//
*Great visibility on the road
*Sturdy, the materials seem to be long-lasting and durable.
*Snugly fits two kids and a stuffed giraffe
*Great storage space for grocery runs and picnics in the park.
*Safe, the roll cage is more than strong.
*Reputation for good customer service.
*Collapsible
*Pneumatic tires

Cons//
*Only one drink holder.
*Inability to attach any stroller kit
*Flag seems cheap, almost an after thought.
*Safety harness seems weak.
*When I said fits two kids snugly, snugly is a bad thing.
*Only one belt for two kids. Seems like a higher-profit sorta corporate shortcut.

OVERALL//
Spend more on a higher-end model from Burley or Chariot. If you can't Get the Bee. Ignore the cheaper versions and brands. They aren't worth it. If you want safe kids, get safe products.

***UPDATE 10/09/11***
We have abused this trailer, left it outside locked to a post, exceeded the weight limit, and spilled every possible liquid all over it. It has stood up the test of roughly 5 months. So far, so good.

***UPDATE 09/07/13***
Wow, so it has been nearly three years (and nearly 2000 miles)since we purchased this trailer. If I were to put a year limit on this trailer, it would be four years. After that, it is likely to be falling apart. My two kids have spent much of their young lives in the Burley Bee and I must say, a few of my complaints have disappeared. Long gone is the stuffed giraffe and the fights of who wants to sit next to the drink holder(kids grow up). Now with two children, one 3 (as of today!) and one is 4, I must say I am quite impressed with its performance enough to give it an extra star for strength. After pitching the Burley Snuggler Child Bicycle Trailers my kids fit hip to hip in a sometimes negative fashion. I still to this day wish that the trailer was at the very least 3 inches wider.

The connection to the bike is still very strong and extremely well fitting to a plethora of bikes (I have used it on 4 different bikes at least) which is more than I can say for the spoke destroying Avenir 72 27 010 Cargo Bicycle Trailer that threw me into oncoming traffic upon coming loose (while completely empty and fully tightened).

The durable material that holds my kids safely in the trailer is now weathered from cycling (we store it in our garage safe from the weather) and torn from constant use. If you are a commuter, you will appreciate the durability. I have went through 4 chains on my commuter bike since getting this trailer if that gives any notion as to how much we ride and there is only one tear from use, however the bright yellow has faded from banana to a faded pastel of a yellow and the black is now pretty grey. The plastic covering the mesh door is cloudy and the elastic is fully stretched out. I can see the room for improvement for design here is a system of snaps or velcro.

Overall, still a great trailer for the near 3 year mark and i still recommend this as the entry level of bike trailers. Don't go for anything cheaper, it is trash, I promise.

A bit disappointing, at least for small kids 17 May 2011
By A. Deal - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We were very excited to get this trailer and take it for a spin, but when we put our (average-sized) 13-month-old into it, we started having second thoughts. The harness system seemed really flimsy, the seat doesn't offer much support, and the webbing cuts into the neck of our apparently too-short passenger. Oh, and also, because he was slouched down in the seat, the "helmet pocket" was useless (because he was below it), and his helmet just slid forward into his face and made him angry.

One thing I will say is that Burley's customer service is fantastic -- when I called to ask whether we should try the Snuggler insert to make our son more comfortable, the customer service rep suggested rolling up a towel for lumbar support and another to act as a booster (if need be). I was impressed that she didn't push a product on me, but rather, a practical solution. Anyway, we found a used Solo that works WAY better for smaller passengers (though the seller said his kid rode in it until she was 6 or 7) because of the padded, reclining seat and padded harness, so the Bee went back. As usual, props to Amazon for quick shipping/easy returns.

Easy to put together and pretty rugged 3 Aug. 2010
By M. King - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
At first we were considering a less expensive trailer (around $99) but, after reading reviews of the others and how several returned theirs and got a Bee, decided to get the Bee. Being our first trailer, we didn't know what to expect, but we are very happy with it so far. It was super easy to assemble and the pneumatic tires are a big help when going over gravel in the road. I do wish there were a few more inches of room in the seat since we have a 2 1/2-year-old boy and a 1 month old girl (no, we do not put the newborn in the trailer). Our boy takes up a lot of room when sitting in the middle. I can't imagine when she is old enough to ride that both will fit comfortably.

That aside, our boy loves going for rides, especially since daddy is the one doing to the work :)

Well worth the upgrade in cost, in my opinion.

Easy to assemble, easy to tow, tight fit for two kids! 21 July 2010
By Beth S. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We spent a lot of time reading reviews before purchasing a bike trailer and opted to spend the extra money on the Burley Bee based on other reviewers comments. It is definitely money well spent! The Burley Bee is essentially fully assembled out of the box and there are easy to understand videos available online if you have any questions about attaching it to your bicycle. Pulling the trailer is a breeze too! I haven't ridden a bike in years and our kids are too young to keep up when riding through the neighborhood, so this is the perfect solution. I can barely tell they are behind me unless I am going uphill, so don't be afraid of the trailer weight! The seating is tight for two kids (ages 2 & 4) and it is a combined seat/seatbelt system so they slide into each other in the middle. They didn't complain too much but said it was hot but still fun!
