Bike Trailer Blog:

All hail the bike cargo trailer!

Bike cargo trailers are amazing tools for getting more out of a bicycle -- and keeping you a out of your car. In all their variety, bike cargo trailers are the perfect tools for hauling stuff by bike.

We cover touring, commuting, errands, and generally doing more by bike -- so we don't leave out cargo bikes and conversions.

The topics of bike child trailers and trailer-cycles are covered in our Family Cycling section.

Submit Your Bike Trailer Photos

This blog is about sharing the fun, the utility, and the creativity that bike trailers can inspire. We want photos of how you've used your trailer -- whether it's an off-the-shelf model in a beautiful or interesting setting, or if it's a Franken-trailer customized in a way only you could have conceived.

Photos help to spread ideas, and stimulate discussion. It doesn't matter if you bought from one of our shops or not -- Bike Trailer Shop, Bike Bag Shop and Bike Kid Shop. Your photos and the stories behind them want to be seen and heard.

Bike Trailers for Golf Clubs

Bike Trailers are a great way to combine bicycling with other activities, golf for example. Here are a few bicycle trailers that can be used with a little modification to transport golf clubs.

The simplest solution is the PaddleBoy Flyer Trailer. This bike trailer is designed for use with kayaks and canoes. Because the trailer is adjustable in length, it could be set to the right length to support a golf club bag. In its shortest position, the trailers main support strut positions the support brackets at 43″ apart, just the right length for a golf club bag. An extra bit of padding could be used on the front v-shaped support for cushioning.

One of my favorite things about BOB Trailers is the proclivity of their use as the base for the odd if not bizarre modification.

BOB Trailer with Solar PanelSolar Power: Use your BOB to support a large solar array and run electrical appliances wherever you go. Or use it to power the electric hub on your bike.

Business Building

Its been another record breaking sales month at the BikeTrailerShop.com. My only question now is when do the sales slow down. My guess is that they’ll remain strong through the summer and taper off in September.

I’ve been learning the hard way about getting a bigger shop building put up quickly. I found a contractor and have been waiting around for a bid for over two months now. Translated: the builder is keeping me on the back burner until they have a lull in their activities. It seems that the situation calls for shopping around my building expansion work to a few different bidders just so as to firm it up. At this point, I’m just looking to get closed in with it before the snow flies.

Last week I moved my office into my workshop. Before I had my office inside the house and would always be running back an fourth. This was a move I’d wished I’d made a long time ago with the efficiencies gained.
