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.

Thom’s New Uses for the Wandertec BONGO Trailer

Here is an interesting adaptation of our in-house built bike trailer, the Wandertec BONGO. We designed this trailer with modification and customization in mind. It is a great platform for quite a few different uses. And it always seems that there are more unique uses for it. Using it for transporting a wheelchair behind a mobility scooter is yet another unexpected direction.

Our customer Thom describes:

Several months back I picked up a trailer from you folks. I believe I was working with Robert? I came up with this idea how cool it would be if I could take my wheelchair with me when I was out on my mobility scooter. I asked a lot of questions and then bought one. The end results are steller! The only part I added was an 18″ piece of 1″ X 1″ channel. I Drilled two holes in it and I was good to go. It will hook to any Pride Mobility scooter. NO welding or drilling on the scooter. It’s all there, stock. In this case, SIZE MATTERS. if you hooked this up to a small scooter, it may burn it up. It tracks killer. Left turns are WAY better than right turns but that with a little thought is no problem.

Think of what people in retirement communities could do with this set up……. I see money to be made! Ice chest, Groceries, Dogs, Stuff……..
