Though Burleys haven't been made for several years, we know plenty of people still ride them and that's why we make the Burley Idler Kit. Our kit includes hardware that fits all 3 different types of Burley bikes. All three use both our award-winning T-Cycle Over/Under Idlers and a Double-Sided Clamp-On Chain Keeper to float the chain, reduce noise and improve efficiency. The kit comes with a specially crafted threaded insert (custom made for Burley long wheelbase bikes), a stainless steel idler bolt, spacers, and other necessary hardware. The Burley Idler Kit is a serious upgrade in every department. If you plan on keeping your Burley, you'll appreciate the investment.
This kit is configurable for all Burley bikes. The Spider has another idler in the rear, and we have another kit for that. Email us if you have a Spider.
Works exactly as advertised. The installation diagram was missing from the delivered package, but T-Cycle were quick to send me a PDF. Good customer service. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find a part for a bike that was discontinued in 2006. I was very happy that T-Cycle had the part. I really like my Django and am glad to be on the road again.
I installed a T-cycle Elite Series Idler kit on my Burley Recumbent 3 years ago. It was well with the investment. The bike is so much quieter and runs much smoother. If you have a Burley Recumbent and are still run the original Burley idler, what are you waiting for? Upgrade to a T-cycle Idler. I highly recommend it.
