Burley Design Strikes Again! Improved Trailers for 2012

Burley has just released their updated versions of the Piccolo and Kazoo trailercycles.  Already gaining a lot of popularity last year, the newly improved versions are expected to be a big hit with parents in the 2012 year.  Some of the changes include the removable towbar, a lightweight aluminum frame, and increased adaptibility for storage.  Check out all the details in the press report from Burley!


The Piccolo comes with a 7-speed twist-grip shifter and the Kazoo is a simple single-speed. Both trailercycles feature a lightweight aluminum frame for durability, high performance and a solid ride.

The people spoke and we listened. The Piccolo and Kazoo are back in the lineup for 2012 and now available for purchase.

Both of these unique trailercycles allow a child to learn how to ride while staying safely behind an adult during the trip!

Improved design features for 2012:

  • Lightweight aluminum frame
  • Removeable towbar for compact storage and transport (above right)
  • heavy-duty Tailwind rack works with pannier bags and trailercyle (above center)

Other trailercycles lean away from the lead cycle making it more difficult to control the bicycle (left). Burley trailercycles stay in line with the lead cycle (right).

Other key features:

  • Hitch sits perpendicular to the ground, providing superior handling and stability
  • Double locking mechanism for extra security
  • Stable and snug in-line handling with over-axle pivot attachment (diagram right)
  • Adjustable handlebar and seat post
  • Safety flag and both wheel and rear reflectors for visibility
  • Recommended for children 4 to 10 years old and up to 85 lb/38.5 kg, with a recommended 2-1 adult weight-to-child weight ratio
