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.

A Recovery Child Trailer Turned Cargo – P.2

Following up on a DIY bike trailer project that we published the first phases of last September, Harry sent us these photos of the next steps in the project.

It’s done. Total cost: $75 ($50 for new tires, tubes, $25 for velcro). And a lot of time. The fabric is rip-stop nylon (donated by my mother-in-law). I used sticky-back velcro to wrap the fabric around the frame. All the fabric will come off for folding/storage. I also attached an old rug on the floor of the trailer to stop stuff from sliding. My neighbor Kathleen did the sewing for me, I cooked some black beans in my pressure cooker for her in exchange. It takes a village! Very satisfying project.
