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.

Bob’s DIY Bike Trailer Solutions Part 2

Our friend Bob sent us some more images of a bike dog trailer that he has been working on. Previously Bob had sent us some images of his DIY bike cargo trailers. Here’s what Bob has to say about his latest creation.

“This is my latest completed trailer with it’s happy passenger Quincy. This lady wanted a cargo hauler and something to haul her dog with. With this particular box, the lid snaps off very easily so the trailer becomes a dog hauler. She made a nice cushion for the bottom and the dog wears a little harness with 2 short leads so he can’t jump out of the trailer.”

In my estimation, Bob’s design looks solid, lightweight and offers some excellent functionality. Keep up the good work, Bob and we look forward to seeing your next DIY Bike Trailer.

    HEy, I am so glad that your smart to put a harness on the dog. I had a shepard that was so happy to ride along. I had to really bolt on the trailer to keep it in place. daily I checked the connections an replaced anything that broke cracked or tore. Nothing is scarrier than the trailer to pass you on a hill unattached with the dog cross tied. wow. She passed of cancer, and missing her is hard. JUST glade I did not force her to run at the lakefront in the HOT Chicago summers.
