With Burley's Piccolo, you can turn your bicycle into a parent/child tandem and share the fun of riding with your child! Attach the included Burley Moose Rack on your bike and the Piccolo quickly and easily installs to it via a secure, ball-bearing hitch system that always pulls smooth and straight because it remains perpendicular to the ground. And, for easy pedaling and complete comfort, the Piccolo boasts a lightweight aluminum frame, a front splash guard, an easy-rolling 20-inch aluminum wheel, a 7-speed drivetrain and an adjustable handlebar, seatpost and seat.

Very fun to ride together and a nice way to get a few miles without exhausting your child. My child 6 yr old glides mostly but loves to pedal to help get us up small Nebraska hills. Safety note remind your child not to keep looking around you to see what's up ahead as it really throws off the balance. This took me awhile to realize why randomly I felt like the bike was Teeter tottering. The bike seems sturdy, the videos are key for a safe installation. Good purchase, we live by a great bike trail system without a lot of turns. This is a bonus as turning with the trailing bike can be a balancing act and requires a wide turn. Overall I'm happy we can ride together and so is my child.
My son is 7 and has seriously outgrown his kid trailer (maybe dad was a little tired of hauling a ton of kid & cart, too). One of our favorite activities to do together is day-long rides, but his solo riding skills aren't honed enough for all-day riding. What to do? Enter Burly Piccolo! Not only do I get the extra help hauling us up steep inclines and rough terrain, his confidence and cycling skills have grown exponentially. Best of all, we get to continue to share long, rambling descovery expositions and all manner of adventures within! It's remarkably simple to instal the rack. The bike I use it on is older and the seat-stay brazeons are a tad too low, but it was an easy fix with the supplied straps. Once the hardware is installed, the linkage between the rack & Piccolo literally could not be simpler- push the lever, drop in place, release lever, tighten hand screw. The connection is absolutely solid and it's construction will dispel any worries of disconnecting (When I say solid- I mean SOLID!). The universally jointed coupler reduces wobble from wee wild people deciding to reach for leaves along the trail, etc. The Piccolo itself is as easily adjustable as any quality adult bicycle and can be made to fit little kids to big kids with little issue. My ONLY complaint is that the instructions don't give so much as a clue as to how to attach the front fender- so I improvised (and prepositioned it to be more effective while I was at it). A virtually unmentionable grievance, at that. We put 60 miles on it the first week alone and have plans to some multi-day bikepacking along some of the amazing canal towpath trails here in the Eastern United States this summer as well. The Burly Piccolo is as well constructed and quality as any serious entry level adult bicycle and a fantastic value. The linkage between rack & trailer bike is the simply the best, most effective, best designed and executed available today. And the experinces and memories of these epic rides with my best friend are absolutely priceless. Do yourself and your kid a favor- buy a Burly Piccolo!
I have never written a review in my life for anything. So this should tell you how the piccolo has impacted us. We couldn't get our little one too excited about rides with a less expensive design. But once we purchased this she is begging for us to ride her. Can't believe how such a well made piece can make such a difference! Get one!
My little boy really enjoys riding on his piccolo. The design, particularly of the hitch, is excellent and the build quality is very good.
Oldest son has used for 1 season. Have only done basic upkeep. Rides really well.
