Strangely, the concept came from an airline mechanic: a "Beast of Burden" single track bike trailer prototyped from a cannibalized beach cruiser. They called it the Yak, and they called the company BOB.
BOB Trailers are dedicated to the idea of using your own power for transportation with simple, versatile, and lightweight solutions to carrying gear by bike. For long bike tours or short trips to the store, BOB trailers handle great and haul what you need to haul.
We carry all the parts and accessories, plus bags and cases designed to get the most out a BOB trailer.

From Extrawheel in Poland comes a trailer that is so simple, it's kind of brilliant: The Extrawheel Voyager Bike Trailer as one single full-sized wheel that tracks close behind your bike, with carrying capacity on each side and on top -- like having two rear wheels. Extrawheel is a small company started in 2005 -- but they like to trace the roots of innovation back to Paleolithic times when cave dwellers in Poland innovated tools out of mammoth bones.
Great for off-road or road use, this trailer handles easily. Carry most models of Bike Panniers, and with an optional upper rack, you can carry a duffel or dry bag. It's also like having a spare wheel that does more than wait for an emergency. The full size trailer wheel can replace your bicycle's front wheel in a pinch and keep you rolling. We carry extras like waterproof bags and cargo nets to keep your cargo dry and in place on muddy and rocky trails.
And for guerrilla advertising, there's the ExtraWheel Advert Bike Trailer, which is designed grab attention rather than carry cargo.

Based in beautiful countryside of the Dutch province of Drenthe, Radical Design emerged from a passion for mountaineering, requiring serious gear for serious users. And the trailers in the Cyclone series have plenty of details you would expect from a company that loves both backpacking and bike touring: rugged, converts into a duffel bag for easy travel, a carrying capacity of 100 pounds, and a sleek design for easy maneuverability. And it turns out these are also great qualities in a commuting or utility trailer.
The Cyclone has received many awards, including "Best Two-Wheeler for serious holiday cyclists" from the Dutch magazine Op Pad Biking.
Environment awareness is also part of the Radical Design philosophy, using materials wisely, sustainable energy, and minimizing waste.

Calling a Thule Chariot just a bike child trailer sells it short. Thule Chariots are really great at transporting children in five different ways: cycling (of course), but also strolling, jogging, cross-country skiing and hiking kit.
So we refer to them as carriers -- a catch-all term.
Thule Chariots are entirely dedicated to the outdoor transportation for children. Every product reveals extremely high levels of attention to detail. It is almost silly how many specialty accessories Thule Chariot has designed for getting the most out of their trailers. But when you consider that the Thule Chariot can be used for so many purposes, it certainly makes sense to have accessories to make the Chariot perfect for every need.
Thule Chariot trailers, er, carriers also hold their value. When children have outgrown a Thule Chariot, many parents discover their used Thule Chariot has depreciated less than the price of an inexpensive bike child trailer with fewer features.

Yepp child bike seats are made by GMG (Gebroeders Melkert Gouda) which has been making child bike seats since 1934.
But Yepp seats are made from modern materials such as high-quality perforated EVA polymer, a pliable, rubberlike material that cushions the ride almost like shock absorbers. Yepp makes both front-mounted child seats for easy communication with your child, and rear-mounted child seats with back support and visibility.
When family cycling innovators Xtracycle needed a bike child seat to fit their long-tail bike kits, they adapted the Yepp Maxi Standard Bike Child Seat and called it the Peapod III.
Yepp child seats are designed in Germany, and made in The Netherlands. Since their introduction in 2009, Yepp bike seats have won design awards, including the Bicycle Innovation Award, Red Dot Design Award, Good Industrial Design - Best in Category, not to mention the public prize Baby Innovation Award 2011.
