Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trailer rocks... I consider this to be an investment - an investment into a product that will hopefully carry my babe on many a bike ride with me, and I feel confident we will only need to buy ONE bike trailer - this one. Easy to assemble, GREAT features to include comfy seats, tons of "cargo" space for the parents, easy on/off the bikes, great shade from sun, rain, sleet, snow, and feels like great protection with the roll bar, structure, reflectors, flag, etc. We bought the wheel/stroller attachment so that we could stroll the babe around after we biked to a location. Absolutely thrilled with this purchase, and Manny at REI Chicago was a superstar salesperson that knew this produce in/out and convinced us that this was the right one for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality bike trailer with a couple caveats Burley trailers are great. Everyone knows it. We also know they are expensive! And for the money I would expect pretty much flawless operation. However, there were two things that kept me from giving this trailer five stars. 1) tire would not hold air right out of the box. Minor annoyance. Got it fixed. 3) trailer drifts to the right when used as jogging stroller. Tryed adjusting air pressure. Didn't work. Minor annoyance. The thing is still pretty smooth. 2) handle bar slips when pressing down to turn. This is a pretty big fail! I have stared at the thing trying to figure out how to tighten it, and looked online for a solution, and so far found nothing. Major bummer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trailer! We tested the lower end models (borrowed from friends) before deciding on this one. The quality and extra features included on the encore are more than worth the extra money if you plan on regularly toting your little one(s).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Trailer, wondering on quality Bought this trailer and have used it a ton! We use it behind bikes and also with the stroller kit. Has been great to also use in winter as it keeps the kids warmer with the plastic shield pulled down. Unfortunately, the top seat hanger has started to fall apart within the last year (hopefully Burley covers this as I have submitted a claim) and one of the rubber wheel dust covers has fallen off. We like the stroller, just hope Burley stands behind their product on these few issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rugged and Easy to Set Up The Encore is very easy to set up and yet the construction is very solid. I think the protection offered is great for a trailer--the roll bar, the SPF-rated mesh, the sun shield, etc. I really like the padded harness, and the adjustability of the harness is great--it allows a lot of flexibility to get a great fit for the child. There is also plenty of storage space for bottles, snacks, toys, etc. While I'm just starting to use it, I've been really pleased so far. I had one minor issue with a little bit of wheel wobble that necessitate removing and reinserting the wheel halfway through the ride, but I do not expect this to be an ongoing issue (this is the only reason I haven't given the Encore five stars). Overall, I think this is a solid, safe, and comfortable trailer, and I'm looking forward to using it frequently!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids love it Really great trailer. Easy to set up, mount, and pull. Slow going up hills at times, but low gears do the trick with my 70lb+ load. Kids really love the view and the fun. I've been super happy with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! We haven't had a chance to use it as much as we'd like (our 1-year-old was scared of it at first... either that or he hated his helmet and over winter we didn't have enough snow to test the cross-country ski add-on we bought), but we've taken it for a few bike rides and our almost 2-year-old loves it! We also took his cousins (ages 2 and 4) for rides in it and they seemed to sit comfortably and enjoy it just as much. It's super easy to store and set back up. No complaints at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome build and features. Bought this now almost 6 months ago for our daughter. She loves the trailer and can't wait for the next opportunity to go riding with us. The Encore is very easy to set up, quick to connect to the bike, and pulls with minimal resistance. Build quality is great. Only takes a couple minutes on the bike to adjust your riding style. We also got the conversion wheels to turn the Encore into a running/walking stroller and the swap could not be easier.

I love that the Honey Bee coverts so easily from trailer to stroller. Is the conversion equally simple for the Encore with the conversion kit? We want to be able to bike downtown then convert and walk. 

Asked by: mbscunn
The conversion time from trailer to the stroller on the Encore will be just as easy on the Honey Bee.

I am deciding between this or the honey bee. Will the Encore be any more spacious for the passengers? It looks to be, but dimensions are pretty similar. 

Asked by: mbscunn
The two trailers are very similar in terms of space for passengers, but the Honey Bee does provide a little more space than the Encore.

I may have missed this, but does this come with the jogger and/or stroller adapters?

I was at REI today.  Used my 20% on a small item.  Went out with my daughter tonight.  She too wants this bike trailer for my only grandchild.  I think if I had known about it, I would have bought it.  Any chance I could use my coupon on this item?
