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.

Brian’s Nashbar/BOB Love Child

As a purveyor of BOB Trailers, we’ve often looked in disdain at Nashbar’s knockoff single-wheel trailer offering at about half the price.  We’ve also spoken and heard about quite a few Nashbar trailer customers that have not been happy with the performance.  There must be a few happy customers our there, but we’ve never heard from them.

Brian had the most novel approach to the issues he had with his trailer my modyfying and rebuilding into something unique.  We’re excited to see how Brian’s trailer continue to evolve.  By the way, we’re running low on interesting bike trailer photos here in the winter months.  If you have anything of note on a hard drive, please send them on in.

In Brian’s word’s:

This was a Nashbar trailer that the fork failed on.  My main use for this trailer will be for trail work/maintenance a few miles from my house and running errands so this will be a project in work for awhile.  The rear rack carries a rack bag most times and my plans are to add a dynamo tire driven light system with battery storage.The fork came from the trailer shop and if I add rear suspension I will probably use the Ibex shock.  Thanks for looking and when I get it finished and painted I will send another picture.

    I don’t see this attached to a bike. Does that mean this an orphan love child?
