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.
Terracycle idler for Burley recumbent
Hi, my wife rides a Burley Dejango recumbent, and recently we discovered the original idler is now in two pieces! The chain wore thru to the middle til it came apart. Burley no longer makes parts for this bike, so I went to the Terracycle website and found they make one to fit all the Burley recumbent models. I already have a Terracycle idler on my HP Velotechnic Street Machine to replace the third idler (original equipment). At the rate those were wearing out, i figured long term, the machined metal Terracycle would be far cheaper, plus it works so much better then the original. After instaling the Terracycle on her bike, she loves it! She says it shifts nicer than it ever had. If you don't want to keep buying the original manufactured parts that wear out so often, or can't even buy the parts anymore, I highly recommend going with the Terracycle custom made idlers, sure their idlers cost more, but they last far longer, and work much better the original! My wife and I have ridden each of our bikes well over 40,000 miles, and we have just gotten started... long term - Terracycle is King!
TerraCycle Idler Retrofit - 2006 Burley Spider
Awesome upgrade: Quieter, Smoother, easy to install. Thanks for a great product!
Chain rolls so sweet now
this idler was a tremendous upgrade from my factory stock idler. bearings roll much better and fits perfect better than new
Great Product, even better customer service
This idler pulley kit is awesome, great build quality and super easy to install. It definitely did the trick and got my Burley Django back up and running full steam. Definitely a way better unit than what originally came on the bike. And at first the installation instructions were missing with my kit but TerraCycle was super quick to email them to me and from there the installation was a snap. I highly recommend this product and TerraCycle, you won't be disappointed.
Got my Django back on the road
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.
