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.

Dennis’s PVC Bike Trailer Concept Realized

There is something quite appealing about the look of this PVC bike cargo trailer. It just looks so clean and toy like. It almost looks like candy. Either way it is an inspired way to put together a bike trailer from low cost readily available materials. I wonder how it rides and deals with a heavy load compared to something much more stout like the Wandertec BONGO.

“Hello my name is Dennis and I wanted to come up with an inexpensive trailer to haul items with my bicycle. I used to ride my bike to work everyday and I would occasionally want to haul items that were too big to carry on my bike. After looking at many home made trailers on the internet I came up with another PVC trailer. I created a set of plans that can be purchased for $15. The plans show photos of how to assemble and a detailed parts list of all the components purchased from Home Depot. Parts cost is around $70 with tax. Does not include wheels and tires. You can use a used front and rear wheel set from an old bike.”

    Did the author ever post a link to a website with plans? I wonder if wheel-brackets might be available for sale for something like this?

    I want to know too — where’s the link to the plans?
