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.

Interesting BOB Uses Part 2

A couple of months ago I posted Interesting BOB Uses Part 1. This post had an alternative energy theme

For this go around I’ll explore the realm of home & garden, Home Depot meets your BOB Trailer.

BOB Trailer Lawnmower ConversionThis is about the coolest lawnmower you’ll ever see anywhere.

BOB Trailer Table ConversionIt sure is nice to have a nice flat surface for cooking on while bike touring. With these BOB trailer fittings your BOB becomes a perfect table.

BOB Trailer Grill ConversionA BOB grill? I’ve got many doubts about what this would do to your trailers structural integrity and cleanliness . I also wonder how long it will take to burn off the paint before you can grill. It does make for an entertaining picture though.

Tool Rack on BOB TrailerBOB Trailers makes a handy BOB ToolRAX to carry tools for trail working. But for even capacity here is a Do-It-Yourself BOB Trailer modification that leaves room for a tool box, chainsaw or a case of beer in the cargo area of the trailer.

    I’m not sure if Phillip is really going to Chicago with his fully-loaded triple bike trailer or if he is just scamming money from people at the bus stop. In either case, I took some pictures and gave him a couple bucks…
    Phillip and His Triple-Trailer Bike: Headed to Chicago… Maybe

    Either travel or scam, I’m pretty sure this can classify as an interesting bike trailer use.

    Do you know what was used to make the folding legs in the table picture? Best I can come up with are folding motorcycle foot pegs, but the ones in the photo look like something different. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Use your BOB as a camping chair: remove the wheel and place the empty frame on the ground. Insert your partially inflated Themorest sleeping pad (or ccf pad or inflatable beach mattress, etc.) into the frame. Sit in the cargo space, recline against the padded curve of the BOB front, and relax. Ahhhh. Nothing better after a long day in the saddle. I have used this technique for weekend trips and 1000 mile adventures, works fabulously.
