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.

Clancy’s Custom Foldable trailer

After giving his Burley child trailer to a friend, because children do grow up, Clancy was finding himself lacking cargo capacity on his bike. One day his wife brought home a Yakima Tot Rod. Well, since Clancy no longer need another bike child trailer he began the modification process to convert it into a bike cargo trailer.

Clancy removed the cover and roll cage. The cover was altered and reused, he also mounted horizontal strips of 1′x2′ boards to the trailer floor to add some rigidity. Clancy then added a few Velcro straps for strapping in cargo. According to Clancy his favorite thing about this trailer is the ability to remove the floor, roll it up and collapse the trailer for easy transport or storage.

I think this is a great DIY custom mod of an older bike trailer, that originally was intended for a different use, into a great new bicycle cargo trailer. Nice job Clancy!
