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.

New Trailer Lineup

EDIT: Sold Out

The Bike Trailer Shop has been expanding a bit lately, and in the interest of reaching all segments of the bike trailer market, no matter how niche, we have decided to throw our hat into the trailer-building ring with the first two of what we hope will be a long line of branded trailers.

Pony TrailerThe first of our new bike trailers, sure to be a hit among riders of all stripes, is the Pony trailer, designed exclusively for the mass transport of refreshing beverages. You’ll be like the pied piper with this trailer, followed closely wherever you ride by hordes of thirsty fellow bikers.

Custom options for the Pony include a pedal-powered refrigeration unit, pedal pump, cup attachment, and security latch, to prevent opportunistic siphoning.

Stick FrameWe’re also happy to announce our first general-purpose cargo trailer, the Stick-Frame. After settling on the final design, and sourcing the materials from Home Depot and local bike-parts hoarders, we’ve begun production in earnest.

The flexible, balanced design allows you to carry just about anything, from plywood, as seen here, to, well, just about anything. The readily available frame components are easy to replace in the event of a breakdown, virtually anywhere in the world. Heck, you can even use sticks in a pinch! The innovative hitch design and integrated load securing devices also solve the age old dilemma of what to do with old, flat inner tubes!

We hope you, the bike trailering public, are pleased with our new offerings. We’re running a great introductory offer on both of these at the shop, so get your order in now!
