    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.

    Square tube or round tube draw bar? you like the new forged trailer hitch?

    it will fit under the axle nut on the left side you know..

    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.
