Thread: Older Burley

    Older Burley

    I want to take my son with me on rides so I got my parent's Burley out of their barn and fixed it up. But when I tired to hook it to my bike the disk break rotter gets in the way. It's about 12years old I think.

    Is there any way to rig it so that it can fit. Or do they sell something to convert it to hook somewhere else on the bike. I would love to get this one to work it is in great shape and don't want to drop the dough for a new one.

    Thanks.
