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.

Custom Xtracycle Decks & Xtracycle Kits on Sale

Brand Name Boards Custom Xtracycle Deck

Brand Name Boards, which is based out of Durango, Colorado, makes custom snap decks to use on an Xtracycle. They make a beautiful assortment of boards from the surfboard version (shown on our Radish below) to a cushioned board for comfortable sitting. Check out the video below to watch the construction of one of these boards in action.

Here at Bike Trailer Shop, we have the one and only surfboard Xtracycle deck. The deck is complete with the proper surfboard parts, including the pointed tip, tail, and bottom fin.

The racing stripes on our Brand Name Board perfectly match the color of the Xtracycle Radish, which makes for a beautiful, eye-catching, and well crafted accessory for an Xtracycle or Radish.

We decked ours out with some Jandd Grocery Bag Panniers, and it is one good-looking, load-hauling machine.
