Burley child trailer and brompton

I am wondering if anybody has used a burley bee (or other burley child trailer) with a brompton? If so, did you need to make any modifications?

Thanks.

Then that would be the square tube , off shore , Philippines made Import ones .

the Forged F like clamp is standard now, It works fine with QR and Nut fixed hubs..

Have a Carry Freedom, city.. Using their elastomer fitting shared with the chariot trailers
that hitch shown here : http://www.bikekidshop.com/chariot-b...ch-p-1537.html

it uses a ball shaped elastomer , rather than the one which Burly adopted which has a pin
through a flat elastomer .. the one above, the pin keeps the ball in the cup.

so difference, as functional re Brompton rear fold, requires un hooking the Burly trailer ,

but for riding, towing the trailer, It should be fine ..

I also own a trailer from the late Burly Worker Owned Co-op era. that one used a round tube .

the Chariot elastomer is different size than that , also..


What lets the City trailer and the Brompton fold, in the way they do,
is the handle-tow bar comes in at a right angle to the bike, so the ball elastomer
rotates in the hitch ..

Looking further , if an offset space issue arrives Chariot has a workaround..
http://www.bikekidshop.com/chariot-b...or-p-2072.html

shown is for Shimano IGH axle's threading, S-A for rearwards compatibility,
with the UK made hubs, is a bit different.

hex stock would be threaded with reasonable ease to create something like it.

[appropriate Tap buy, and machine shop time)

thanks for the reply. not sure what exactly to expect with regards to needing workarounds, etc.

I just put the hitch between the washer and the nut on my M3L's left axle end.
