Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grocery Trailer Purchased the Burley Nomad Cargo Bike trailer to use for weekly grocery runs for my wife and I as I moved into retirement, mostly as an affirmative reason to get some exercise. The Burley Nomad works exceptionally well for this purpose, and can carry 5 full bags of groceries along with 3 twelve-packs of soft drinks comfortably. Love the quick connect to my Trek bicycle, and it is easy to lock the trailer through the frame and both wheels to my bike/ and the bike rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cargo Bike Trailer As part of my decision to use my bike around town as much as possible, I bought the Burley Nomad Cargo Bike Trailer. I use it for groceries and for bulkier items like 35 pound bags of chicken feed. It pulls and turns smoothly and carries weight well. The only time I "feel the burn" is when I have to make it up the last steep hill to my house. I Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burley Nomad Cargo Bike Trailer I love this trailer. I use it for bicycle touring, and haul 70-75 lbs (including the trailer) with my Surly Disk Turcker. The trailer hauls the load well and the bike handles it very well. I prefer the trailer over panniers because it keeps the weight lower and off the bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for long-distance touring! My wife and I recently completed a 4,300-mile ride across the country from Yorktown, VA to Astoria, OR along the TransAmerica Trail. My wife had panniers on her bike and I pulled the Burley Nomad trailer. I ended up pulling 60 pounds total including the trailer itself which included my professional DSLR camera, my 15" MacBook Pro, an iPad, sleeping bags, shower gear, 6 liters of liquids (water and Powerade), etc. The Burley worked flawlessly from coast to coast! Both the camera gear and the MacBook handled the trip without a problem thanks to the Nomad. Pros: Well-made and darn near indestructable! Not a single thing on the trailer broke. Tires still have plenty of tread even after 4,300 miles. The tracking is stable even at speeds of close to 50 mph. Was able to fit much more gear into the trailer than we actually needed. Cons: The only con is that the trail isn't waterproof. The yellow top cover is waterproof. The front, back, sides and bottom are made of a durable material, but it is not waterproof. If the Burley is standing in the rain, it's fine, but when you're riding, the bottom and the front for the most part will get wet. The easy solution for this was to line the inside with a trash bag. We ended up using one trash bag to keep things dry for the entire ride. Lastly, to give you an idea of how durable this trailer is, my wife and I were riding our bikes through a town and I misjudged a curb going about 15 mph. Although I missed it with my bike, the Burley hit the curb with one wheel and flipped. Because of the way the Burley attaches to the bike, within a few feet, it self-righted. I didn't see what happened since the trailer was behind me, but I knew something went wrong. My wife, who was behind me, saw it and couldn't believe how quickly the Burley self-righted. I checked the Burley and couldn't see anything at all wrong with it...not even a scuff on the yellow top! I would HIGHLY recommend this for anyone who is considering a long-haul tour. If I were going to do the cross-country bike ride again, I would definitely use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for bike camping I bought this for a bike camping trip with my kids. It was able to carry three sleeping bags, tent, clothing, food, and gear without any problems. It was easy to attach to my bike and to take off when not needed. I did have an issue with my rear tire quick release coming undone, but that was probably more operator error than anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bikepacking! We bought the trailer to try out on a 3-day bikepacking adventure. It worked perfectly. Yes, you will notice the weight, but quiet and smooth, and stayed waterproof in the rain. Loved it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trial by fire We picked up the Nomad shortly before a family trip riding the GAP/C&O. Naturally, taking a family requires bringing a lot more items than individuals. The first frustration was that it wouldnt take 2 bear vaults side by side, but once I figured out how it needed to be packed, we were able to get everything in. The trailer worked perfectly on the GAP trail as it is either paved or crushed limestone. When we started the C&O, there were puddles everywhere. With the top secured, the trailers contents stayed perfectly dry while the outside was a muddy mess. The dual wheels didnt track very well once the trail turned rough and narrow although I could probably have moved weight around inside the trailer to help, but its still not the ideal singletrack trailer (the one wheeled competitor would be better for that). I gave it four stars because when its used for what it was intended for, its great, I just wish it was better all around, including off trail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I mostly use it to carry things to the local airport to work on my plane or go flying. I tow it behind my recumbent Trike and don't even know it's there unless I see it in the rear view mirror. The cover is great also. The two things that I have needed to change are the flag holder and the interior base. The flag base just sticks into a slot in the fabric. The flag is tall and with any cross wind at all it can bend way over into the opposing bike lane and could also whack pedestrians without you even knowing it. I just use the 1/2 length and that is fine as I have a tall flag on the Trike. The bottom of the carrier is just fabric material and I would worry about heavy items tearing a seam and falling through. I just made a cardboard cutout out of the box it arrived in and inserted it in the bottom to provide more support.

Will this trailer attach to an ICE trike with a 20" rear wheel?

Asked by: CWBS
The Nomad Cargo Bike Trailer should fit your ICE Trike. It depends on the axle and dropout spacing on your trike. The included hitch fits QR axles and solid axles up to 12mm. Additional spacers/axels can be order directly from Burley should you have a 12mm or greater axle.

Can hitching work with through-axle hubs?

Asked by: Stuy
Burley trailers are certainly compatible with 12mm thru axles. You would just need to purchase one of their adapted thru axles for mounting the Steel Hitch.

Will this work with a Fat Bike, specifically a Minnesota 3.0 Fat Bike? Thanks!

Asked by: NapesWVU
The Nomad Cargo Bike Trailer should fit your bike. The included steel hitch fits disc brakes and QR axles and solid axles up to 12mm. Since you have an axle that is bigger than 12mm you will have to get an adapter directly from Burley.

Can I attach this to a felt outfitter with the stock axel or do I need to purchase a special axel?

Asked by: Casey208
This trailer will not accept 15mm thru axles and, unfortunately, Burley does not have 15mm thru axle adapter that will work with your bike.

In the specs it says: "front and back gates lower for longer loads." It sure looks like the floor and side panels are all one piece. Is this an incorrect leftover statement from the 2013 and prior model?

Asked by: Brandon
That statement is incorrect. Thank you for calling this to our attention, we will have our website updated shortly.
