The Burley Piccolo is a great little bike that you connect behind your bike for your child to ride on. After they have grown out of the child bike trailer. The best thing about the Burley Piccolo is it's made by the Burley company and they make some of the best bike trailers in the business. So, if your kid is moving up from the bike trailer to a bike you can tow behind yours but you still want them to be able to pedal along with you then this is the one for you. The Burley Piccolo also has a unique connection compared to some of the other bikes like this on the market. It actually connects onto a hitch on a bike bike rack mounted on the back of your bike.

The Burley hitch is important because it connects to your bike via a hitch mount on a Burley Tailwind rear mount bike rack which is included. It connects much like a fifth wheel trailer connects to a pickup. Watch the video on the right you will see what I mean it connects very securely. The Video is in Japanese but it is a visual thing you will see how it connects compared to the systems that connect on the seat post or bike frame. What does this do? Well, it makes the ride much more stable for you and your child. The other systems like on the trail a bike and some others connect both on the seat post and on the frame of the bicycle. The problem with them is they tend have a lot of play and get loose at the connection point. This makes a lot of parents nervous. After all if it was just groceries back there who would mind but it's the kids were talking about.

Burley Piccolo Features and Details

Burley Piccolo Features and Details

The Burley Piccolo is recommended for children from ages 4 to 10 years old and up to 85 pounds. However my nephew weighs more than that and he rides one just fine. It has adjustable handlebars and seat post so as your child gets bigger you can fit it to them. It also comes with 7 gears and twist shift for ease of changing gears some kids still have problems when they are young. In that case I would just put it somewhere that is comfortable for them to spin. They will get it when they are older. So, if it's time to get your kids out of that bike trailer and on something that at least resembles a real bike I think the Piccolo is a great choice for anyone. Whether you are just going down the street to the store or doing a twenty mile ride this bike will do the trick safely and securely.

      That is on of the downsides of the Burley Piccolo. I would say that depends on your budget for this bike as well as how many kids you have. If you have three kids then you want something that is going to last through three kids. If you only have one child who will ride this bike it might not be worth it to you. However if you have used some of the other models and felt the connection wasn't as good as this one then it's definitely worth it.

      Fantastic looking bike although realistically is it worth over 300 dollars?
