Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone have a Burley?

I was in a local shop today and they had a Burley out there on the floor.

The price was good and it looked (cursory look) pretty well made.

I was wondering if anyone on here has one and can relate some experiences, etc.

Burley is the best. Trailers and tandems is all they make. We sell them and they really hold their resale value. They are well-built and easy to hook up. They are easy sells for us if someone is looking for a trailer.

They make two road bikes as well, that's what I was looking at.

I was wondering if anyone had any riding experience on their frames.

Have only seen the Burley road bikes and there comutter bike. Haven't ridden them yet. But I would expect tha same quality as the rest of there products. They have a revamping of the trailer line in the works as well.
