    Strength:

    Simple to use, folds down to small size for trailer, kids and dog love it! Solid construction and fits almost any bike. Safe design - better than BOB - I have had both! Would recommend in a heart beat!

    Weakness:

    Assembly takes longer than I like, but is very solid!

    love it

    Strength:

    Folds up in an accordian manner which leaves you some space in the back of your car. Good harness system and plenty of room for both passengers and cargo.

    Weakness:

    Still hard to open up even after a year of use. Frame mount leaves a lot to be desired. Forget about using it if you have disc brakes or a drum brake mount(tandem). Jogger attachment seemed to be an afterthought. It's the worst! Pain in the ass to get the wheel set into the dropouts, Push handle isn't long enough to run with, without kicking the back of the trailer. I got so fed up with it that I returned it to REI and got my money back. I now own a jog stroller!

    It's a good trailer if you are going to be towing it behind a conventional rigid bike. It's roomy and tracks well. Skip the jogger attatchment until it has been redesigned by the R&D guys at Yakima. Throughout my sporting life I'd have to say that I prefer Thule to Yakima products.

    Strength:

    Wheels remove quickly and easily.
    Ability to fold the trailer while keeping the wheels on is useful, the narrow width takes up less room but it can still be easily moved around.
    Materials are of very high quality.
    Good buckle system, easier than Schwinn or Burley.

    Weakness:

    I've got to just about kill myself to unfold the trailer! Opening the trailer to connect the overhead bar is a test of strength. Hopefully it will get better with age.
    I just got the jogger kit, and you can't totally close the back flap with the push bar in place. They should have a couple of slits to accomodate this.

    A good trailer with quality components. Unique with its folding design. Perhaps priced a little high considering where the Burley D'Lite is positioned (TotRod street price of $299 is the better buy). Definately worth considering if you're looking at the Burley or Trek (I think the Schwinn Joyrider has disappeared).

    Similar Products Used:

    Took a long time to decide between the Burley D'Lite, Schwinn Joyrider, and Yakima (also looked at Trek but it didn't make the cut, also the discount store brands don't even compare!). The Burley was too narrow. The Joyrider needed better belt buckles. A great price on the Caddyak sold me, although you can easily find the TotRod for $299, which really is good enough. In retrospect I do like the Schwinn single caster wheel stroller option (Trek has a dual caster option). If you're not a jogger I have to believe it's probably easier to push than a 16" or 20" option (and maybe could even allow the trailer to still fold up when installed).
