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.

The Haulin Bass Project: A Musical Mission by Bike Trailer

John TeskeJohn Teske is a Seattle based bassist and composer who tows his upright bass on a custom-made bike trailer that is seven feet long by three feet wide. Teske raised more than $1000 to build the trailer, with rails, lights, and padded supports to protect the bass.

I bike everywhere, except for rehearsals and shows. I’ve tried rental cars and bumming rides, and I’m tired of getting strange looks from the bus driver when I pay for two.

The Seattle Times reported on Teske’s unique trailer project in July 2010.

He’s a passionate new-music advocate who is also a dedicated bicyclist and a firm believer in sustainable use. To that end, he has commissioned a steel-framed bicycle trailer for his bass. The idea is to expand his performance opportunities without having to cadge a ride, rent a car or crowd his fellow passengers on the bus.

You can see more pictures on Teske’s Facebook photo album from the Haulin Bass project.
