I purchased this trailer for bicycle touring. I had the choice of buying a new touring-specific bike or buying a trailer to tow behind my existing bike. I really like the feel of my current road bike for long rides and didn't want to spend the money on a new bike or take the chance of a bike I don't like as much. So, I read a lot of reviews and decided the Nomad fit the bill best. I took my new Nomad for a test ride last Saturday. I connected it to my Bianchi Intenso road bike, loaded it with 40 pound of weight, and pulled it about 45 miles on a relatively level paved trail. I was surprised how easy it was to pull. There was a touch of tugging when I crossed wooden planks on the trail, but the ride was really very comfortable. I've not taken it camping yet, but there is obviously plenty of room for anything I would want to take. I've seen other comments with concerns that the cloth bottom isn't strong enough to hold loads, but I found it to be plenty strong. My test load was a sandbag-filled exercise vest, so the weight was concentrated, and the trailer showed no signs of sagging. The wheel axle also spans under the floor, so that adds additional support. The trailer folds down, with the wheels and tow bar fitting inside, and the whole thing fits easily in the trunk of my Toyota Corolla, along with a folding bike rack, tool box and several other items.
I have this attached to my Trek 7.5. Only time my Nomad comes off ? If I need my Burley flatbed for hauling. Love Love & more love both trailers
I needed to try something in addition to the panniers on my e-bike, so I heard about trailers, and specifically the Nomad, through a member of the on-line e-bike group to which I belong. I researched it on-line via videos and reviews. I thought it would work out well for my short to medium range bike touring. I ordered one last spring and have enjoyed it very much since. With two, 100+ mile tours and four 40 mile trips so far, I am pleased with my purchase. I also use the Nomad to pick up 30 pound bags of dog food for my husky mix companion, and for other shopping loads, too. This is an excellent method for hauling and camping. I'm a happy camper.
BOUGHT IT LAST SUMMER FOR A "RIDE AND CAMP ALONG THE FRENCH WEST COAST, I LOVE IT!
The nomad offers an abundance of space for the biker looking to do some back country camping. Its size easily accommodates a five gallon bucket to keep belongings and/or food dry while acting as a sealed container to hang food at night. The accessory rack is great for tying down objects or drying wet clothing while riding. I took this on a week long trip from Washington D.C. to Pittsburg. Cons: The rear corners of the frame aren't smooth and wear holes in the floor. There needs some extra padding on the inside. (I'm going to try bicycle inner tubes). The front of the the floor gets a bit pinched by the mounts that hold the tow bar. This has caused the stitching to stretch from riding around with a full cart. Currently, I have mounted an old seat post rack on the inside to alleviate some of the pressure on the floor of the forward compartment. Water has a tendency to collect in the front compartment also (Only what was in my 5-gallon bucket stayed dry). I was thinking of sewing in some type of drain plug. Pros: The sides are lined with mesh compartments, great for quick access items and the little things. The width and length of the cart is perfect to fit a crazy creek style camp chair (never leave home without it). Once you figure out the best weight balance the cart glides along behind the bike though hills will remind you that it is there. Having the weight off your bike adds to stability while riding and mounting/dismounting, in my opinion. The stock tires are nice also. I have rode the cart over 600 miles and have not had a flat (knock on wood). You can fit everything you need for a week long camping trip in the cart (If you pack as though you are going on a backpacking trip). As stated before, the five gallon bucket is great for storing food and any electronics. Conclusion: I really like the Nomad cart. It is a great alternative to panniers and bags. It cruised behind me on the C&O Towpath and the Great Allegheny Passage with little extra effort. It allows you to carry larger items than could fit into bags (camp chair). Next I'm thinking of using it to ride around Ohio, following the Buckeye trail when possible.
Perfect to have the moped in the long run and no problems with both food and spare parts
Bought this for our bike rides with our dog (he goes in a basket in front of the bike) and the trailer is full of blankets, pillows, food (and wine).
Its nice but could be built with a aluminum type braceing for protection of the lower material n to carry more wait.. but over all it is a good bike trailer.. have not yet testex the rain but i did renforece using plastic shetting to carry more weight.. works well..
I bought the Burley Nomad about a month ago. It is a high quality product all around, rides so smooth I had to check to see if it was still attached! It holds everything I hoped. I use it for day trips to the beach and carry a grill, cooler, and other items. Highly recommended!
Took it on a cross country ride be nice if it locks to prevent other people from going through it. Bought it in Houston Texas and the bottom is already beginning to tear has few holes after 2000 miles.
