Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded every expectation After owning this for a month and briefly owning a Burley Bee before I am extremely satisfied. We live in the city and bike almost everywhere so since our new daughter was born I’ve been tossing ideas of how to get her out on the bike with me. I was hesitant of a trailer; to me they always seemed obnoxious, big, clunky, and a PITA to tow around. So I went through all the available options of attachable seats, carriers, cargo bikes, etc. Finally I decided I didn’t feel comfortable having her strapped to the bike and exposed. Not only for safety, but also because we live in Minnesota and it’s cold and windy most of the year. The local bike shop had Burley Bees on sale so I went and bought one. I had it for about a week and while I quickly started to love the trailer, I started to dislike many things about it. For one the roads aren’t smooth around here, and the basic Bee has no suspension, so it was very jarring on my daughter and I could tell she wasn’t comfortable. Another thing that impeded her comfort was being crammed against the side. Since it’s made for two kids and the sides aren’t bowed out like the higher end models she was right up against the side bar. Also it has the basic seat and for a 6 month old this wasn’t gonna cut it. Also I felt a lot of vibration thought my bike, even on my old (and incredibly comfortable) hand lugged steel Trek. My newer bikes it was almost unbearable, (I’m 6’6” and 200lbs so I already put a lot of stress on a bike and need to inflate the tires to a high psi). However owning that for a short time made me realize I was a big fan of the trailer and after doing some research the Solo would fix all my problems. So after selling the Bee privately for what I paid (yes they have great resale) I bought the Solo. The suspension is excellent, my daughter is very comfortable now and so am I. The seat system is a ton better, and having it adjustable is great. She is much happier sitting in the center and having room on either side for her arms, dolls, Sophie, whatever… I can also tell the difference in reduced width both in navigating through tight places and the lower wind resistance. Handling wise they were both phenomenal; I can tell they’re there going uphill, but it rolls great and tracks great. I love the storage in the back, it’s great to be able to throw gear back there, the diaper bag, food, basically all the stuff I would cram on my back. Plus with the lay flat seat it makes a fantastic package hauler, so I am now able to make UPS deliveries faster with the bike then having to try and navigate traffic and detours downtown. Would I buy this over the Bee? If you have a very young child, or only one child to transport, and you bike a lot, or have rough surfaces to navigate; yes definitely! If you love biking, do yourself a favor and just cough up the extra money, the enjoyment after just one month was worth the price and with how well this is built I expect it will last a lifetime. I already looking forward to winter and picking up the fat tire set! One last thing; The connection to the bike is awesome, it’s very easy to connect. The hitch that stays on the bike is very minimal and being able to purchase extras to put on other bikes makes swapping a ton easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Produce This bike trailer folds up nice and is perfect for the bike path. I added some velcro to the bottom so that when it folded the trunk flap could wrap over the end and hold it closed. The seating could be improved. A small wrap around head rest of some sort and the ability to recline the seat would be nice.
