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.

Join the conversation.

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.

Randall’s Extrawheel Ad-Bird

“List Free, Shop Smart, Save Gas!”  This is the motto of Randall’s bicycle-powered advertising business.  He used an Extrawheel Voyager to prop his “Ad-Bird” and he can still haul cargo in his 6 Ortlieb panniers as he advertises.  Way to multi-task.  Also check out Extrawheel’s other trailer, the Advert — an alternate design for promoting your own business or cause by bike.

 

 

John, his Burley Nomad, and the C&O Trail Autumn Leaves

Just last month, John took his Burley Nomad Cargo Trailer on the C&O Trail from D.C. to Maryland.  The Nomad proved to be a safe fashion choice amongst the changing of the leaves from last season’s green to this season’s yellow.  Although I’m sure John had a greater appreciation for the Nomad’s heavy-duty carrying capacity – 105 liters and 100 lbs.  Still.  Color-coordinating your gear with Mother Nature doesn’t hurt.  All Burley Cargo Trailers are now 10% off at BikeTrailerShop.

Yvan’s BOB Trailer Mod

Yvan needed more space than the Bob DrySak would allow.  So he took matters into his own hands.

I decided instead to adapt my BOB trailer with a luggage rack. It cost me only $40 for the support. The advantages are that the panniers are lower, and therefore more stable.  The weight is on the rear wheel and the panniers are protected against the wind by the BOB DrySak.  It is now very stable!

Don’t be shy — Put your own welding experience to the test and modify your trailers to fit your specific transportation needs as well!  Just make sure to email us your experiences – good or bad so we can all learn from your successes and/or failures.  BOB Trailers are also currently 10% at BikeTrailerShop.  Happy experimenting my dear Dr. Biken-steins!

Leslie’s Carry-All Croozer Trailer

Leslie recently brought her Croozer Cargo Trailer along on a 180 mile ride on the Katy Trail in Missouri.  She loaded the heavy-duty trailer with 3 sleeping bags and a 7-person tent.  Leslie comments “The Croozer was easy to assemble and hook up to my bike.  It had more drag on the trail than I had hoped, but overall I’m pleased with my purchase.”  Select Croozer Cargo, Child, and Dog Trailers are now 10 to 20% off!
