Burley Nomad

Everywhere you pedal, Burley's Nomad is your ideal tag-along. Its simple-to-use hitch and two-wheel design offer reliability on and off the road without compromising bike handling. And, with a generous 100-pound hauling capacity, this sub-15-pound cargo trailer totes tons of gear. Tent. Hibachi. Cooler? Now there's no excuse to leave anything home!

    I've pulled this trailer on at least 5 500+ mile trips. My bike has fallen over a few times and the hitch just won't twist and break. I've hit a landscape rock with a wheel and flipped the trailer and nothing broke. I've hit a concrete planter at [...], which stopped the bike and almost threw me off the bike and the trailer was not damaged.I would not say that it is waterproof, so when riding for hours in the rain, water can get splashed in from cars, and from the bike's rear wheel. I use a sheet of Tyvek to cover my gear for extra protection.Wheel bearings are sealed cartridge type and I have had no issues with them. Last year I had no issue going down hills in Quebec rather fast (up to 50 MPH) with no shimmy or wobble.At times when I want a bit more of a workout, I'll pull a 50 pound bag of sand and hit the hills.Finally, I think car drivers give you plenty of extra room because they think that you are probably pully some sort of Burley kid trailer!

      This is a wonderful peice of equipment, as well engineered and made as a top of the line bike. Attaches securely and quickly with existing QR or wheel bolt and the hitch is STRONG. Comes with Big Apple tires and heavy duty wheels.Fabric construction is heavy weight and aluminum frame is strong. Easily will carry the 100lbs rating, enough room for overnight camping and has side pockets and a divider inside. Tracks quietly and with your load balanced you won't know it's there. Folds flat when not used. Optional cargo rack for top is great for fishing poles or whatever oversized thing you have. I put a piece of light plywood on the fabric floor to avoid wear and holes. This is not a toy but a true quality peice of equipment. Not for off-road or single track.

        This trailer is comparable to a high end bike in construction, design, and ease of use. Behind my Catrike it tracks perfectly with no sway, easily can carry 100 lbs with the load balanced over the axle and is silent. I sometimes forget its back there. This is not for use off-road but handles street and rails to trails perfectly. I use it for 3-4 day camping treks and have never been disappointed.

            Used it on our ten-day self-supported Michigan trip pulled by our tandem. It is lightweight and tracks perfectly. Tracking offset keeps you from allowing one wheel to drop off the road edge. We are buying the rack to eliminate the need for front panniers. [...]
