Child Trailers Recalled by Burley DesignsAug 20, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP Child trailers designed to transport children behind bicycles have been recalled by Burley Design LLC, of Eugene, Ore. According to the recall notice, the child trailers' axle assembly’s internal sleeve can loosen, causing one wheel to separate from the trailer. This poses a risk of injury to the child occupant or bike rider.

Only the 2009 d’lite ST and 2009 Solo ST trailers with serial numbers that begin with D939 or D948 are included in the recall. The serial number is located in the rear cargo area behind the seat on the lower left rear frame tube. The trailers have “d’lite ST” or “solo ST” screen printed on the cover.
The recalled child trailers dependent bicycle retailers and specialty outdoor retailers nationwide and on various web sites from November 2008 through June 2009 for between $550 and $600.
