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.

Mike’s Full Featured BOB Ibex

There are quite a few ways to outfit a BOB Trailer.  Mike took it to an extreme by decking his BOB Ibex out with a Wandertec SAX Liner, a Greenspeed Rack and Delta Water Bottlecages.  The real topper is the wooden fender that makes this one of the coolest looking BOB setups I’ve seen.  If you’ve got an interesting BOB or other bike trailer setup that you’d like to see published, send your photos or video here.

“Thanks for the terrific service and great product. Thought I’d share this with you.”

The Ladder Pull in Bill’s Words:

I have been riding my trusty steed for about three years. I have enjoyed it. It had a sun shade on it for a while but the vibration kept braking the soldier joints on the copper pipe frame. I finally took it off and am trying to find another plan.
I had the need for a ladder across town. I needed a way to transport it. The doomed three wheeled baby stroller  became the rear wheels of my parade.
I got there and back. The nice ladies gutters got cleaned and I did not have any of my friends do the hauling for me.
I am sure the next time I will do it different but it got there and back safely. The other thing that you should know is the whole process was very heavy.
