Child Bicycle Trailers Recalled

Child bicycle trailersEugene, OR (SafetyAlerts) - Burley Design Cooperative is voluntarily recalling about 2,200 Burley-Bravo™ bicycle trailers, used to transport young children. The wheel can separate from these trailers during use, and result in crashes and injuries to children riding inside. Loss of control to the bicycle pulling these trailers also can cause the riders to crash and suffer injuries.

Burley has received one report of a wheel coming off of one of these trailers, causing the bicycle rider to fall and suffer minor injuries.

Burley-Bravo™ trailers included in this recall were made between November 1999 and June 2000 with serial numbers 430-01-1 through 430-29- 160. Serial numbers, manufacturing date and the words "BRAVO TRAILER" are located on a label on the underside of the aluminum frame adjacent to the right wheel. The blue and yellow trailers are designed to carry two children. They are 34 inches long (not including hitch), 26 inches wide and 33 inches high with a weight capacity of 100 pounds. Writing on the front of the trailer reads, "BURLEY." Writing on the trailer's rain/sun cover reads, "Burley Bravo."

Authorized Burley dealers and bicycle shops nationwide sold these trailers from November 1999 through June 2000 for about $350.

Consumers should stop using these Burley-Bravo™ trailers immediately, and return them to the store where purchased for a free inspection and repair, if needed. For more information, contact Burley at (800) 311-5294 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.

No other models of Burley trailers are involved in this recall.
