Bike Shop Hub Center:

The business and work culture of Bike Shop Hub in all it's glory.

When we have new products, sales, weird marketing ideas, commentary on the cycling industry, or embarrasing photos of of the staff, this is where you'll find it.

And since we are located in Arizona, we'll talk about the cycling scene in the state.

Send In Your Cycling Photos

We get to see and touch and test all sorts of great cycling gear here at our world headquarters. But we actually get to meet very few of our customers in person.

We just know you are out there taking pictures of your amazing cycling adventures. We want to see them! The best ones will be shared on the relevant section of this blog: Bike Cargo Trailers, Bike Touring, Bike Technology and Family Cycling.

Announcing the Launch of the Wandertec BONGO Bike Trailer!


There’s a new bike trailer in town! The Wandertec Bongo Bike Trailer. Need to get those groceries home but they won’t fit in your backpack? Need to make some deliveries but the messenger bag just doesn’t cut it? Need to tour around the world? The Wandertec BONGO is your answer. We’ve put our years of bike trailer experience into the BONGO to fit the needs of those looking for the ultimate utility bike trailer.

The Bongo comes in two sizes and is equipped with a thick, weather resistant, wood load bed, suitable for any cargo. Included is Wandertec’s custom strap system, a six point, fully adjustable, buckled strapping system, two removable wheels, either 20′ for the large or 16′ for the small, and a universal hitch system which mounts to any bike with a quick release or nutted axel. We worked hard to design a hitch arm that is fully adjustable both in length and in ability to be leveled and that locks securely and doesn’t bang around. Using a unique compression bolt design we have achieved the following along with allowing the hitch arm to swing up to turn the BONGO into a handcart.

We are currently offering the basic version of the BONGO but have upgrades and accessories in development. There are many commercially available containers already on the market that work great with the BONGO, such as the Rubbermaid 24 gal Action Packer. All the parts on the BONOG can be found just about anywhere, probably anywhere in the world. So field repairs are as simple as tying your shoes.

*We will be running a special sale in celebration of the BONGO release, $30.00 off the price of a small or large BONGO for the first two week of the listing, get them while they last!*

The Wandertec BONGO Bike Trailer has arrived!

Wandertec and the BikeTrailerShop.com are proud to introduce a new trailer for 2010, the Wandertec BONGO Bike Trailer. The BONGO is our answer to the call for the ultimate utility bicycle trailer. Here at Wandertec we see many different types of bicycle trailers and receive a lot of feedback from customers. We felt there was a need in the bicycle trailer market that wasnt being satisfied, so we threw some ideas in the oven and the BONGO is what popped out, in two sizes!

With eco-friendly mindsets spreading and the ever-rising price of gas, more and more people are turning to bicycles as their mode of transportation. But its hard to make grocery runs, gets parts from the hardware store, transport plants from the nursery, or tour around the world with simply a bike. This is where the BONGO comes in to save the day.
