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.

Richard’s Aussie Road Train Inspired Bike Trailer

Richard from Viña del Mar, Chile found inspiration on the Bike Trailer Shop pages.  He constructed this simple single-wheel trailer out of the extra rusted steel he found laying around his home.

I used a 26″ wheel with an old fork  and polished the rusty steel.  In a week I’ll travel with my girlfriend to Patagonia with our trailer that looks like an Aussie road train. I’ve proven that you don’t have to pay a lot of money to build a bike trailer.  On the internet and in Chile, people sell homemade trailers for $160. I only spent $4 in paint and tire rubber cost.

I had to google “Aussie road train” and this is what I came up with.  See the resemblance?  Actually, yes.  Quite comparable, Richard.  Agreed.

Aussie Road Train comparison approved!

Now what can we make out of that rusted old garbage can in the background…
