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 New Wheel of San Francisco Delivers Bikes by Wandertec BONGO Trailer

We were very excited when The New Wheel Electric Bike Shop of San Francisco contacted us here at the looking for a solution for delivering brand spanking new electric bikes to their clients. It sounded like a job for the Wandertec BONGO bike trailer, a trailer that we make here in our shop. The Wandertec BONGO is an open platform that makes it ideal for a variety of custom applications.
After we sized up the situation with Brett Thurber of The New Wheel, we decided to send the large frame only (no BONGO loadbed), 20″ wheels and an extra long hitch arm with a 2 foot extension. The New Wheel than cut the cut the appropriate sized loadbed, bolted on car roof rack style trays, bolted the loadbed to the BONGO frame and were in business. Just a note, that the extra long hitch arms are only available by special order, but should be available for purchase on the website by Summer 2011. Let us know if you have a custom application for the Wandertec BONGO…

The New Wheel is a new business focusing on a select lineup of high quality electric bikes including the Sanyo Enloop and Ohm electric bikes. Their focus is great service, offering test rides during the buying process and complimentary tune-ups to customers.
