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.

Stephen’s Big Time Fun Bike Trailer

Stephen sent in these great photos of his bike trailer solution. This is a bike trailer designed for big loads and big time fun with the kids. With kids riding along, a trailer like this is only safe for slow, casual, smooth rides through the park or other low or traffic-less areas. But with all of the open space it looks like the kids really enjoy using their imagination in how they set it up.

An interesting aspect of Stephen’s design is the integration of the BOB Trailer fork into the trailer. Because the BOB trailer is designed for single-wheel bike trailers, the fork only allows for side-to-side and up-and-down rotation of the bike trailer. A two-wheel trailer also requires the ability for the bike to rotate side-to-side in relation to the trailer. With a single wheeler, this rotation would not work as the trailer would flop over this. Stephen was able to achieve both this side-to-side and pivoting rotation in his fitting between the BOB fork and his trailer (See picture immediately below).
