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.

Thomas’ BOB Modified for his Scooter – Against Our Advice

Even though we don’t recommend, support or condone the use of BOB trailers, or any other bike cargo trailers, on any motorized vehicles other than electric bicycles that are regulated the same as standard bicycles, I have to say that this setup sure does look sweet.  Given the number of questions that we’ve gotten about bike cargo trailers for scooters and motorcycles, we wrote a post about this topic a few years back.

Notes from Thomas:
No one makes a cool scooter trailer, So I made my own. I bought a BOB trailer and modified it. 55mph down the highway is no problem. I have been using it almost daily for two years with no issues.  The BOB folks were less than amused. I was expecting a “Hey, that’s awesome”! from them but instead got a robot lawyer disclaimer stating that they weren’t responsible if I ended up over the side of a cliff or something.
