If a bike is your primary or preferred source of transportation, sooner or later
you will have to solve the dilemma of how to transport large amounts of cargo using
your bike. We recently published a blog about transporting small amounts of cargo
bike basket. One of the drawbacks mentioned in that article was that sometimes
people attempt to transport too much in the limited space a basket provides.
If you intend to transport larger amounts of cargo with your bike, then you should
consider investing in a bike trailer. They can make transporting large items with
your bike much more efficient.
Bike trailers should be acquired based on individual need. You can buy one or you
can make one for yourself if you have the right tools, materials, and know-how.
If you are looking for a fancy one, then you may be excited to learn that electric
bike trailers are available through a company called RideKick. What’s cool about these trailers
is that they actually help push your bike. Depending on the terrain and the weight
of the cargo you’re trying to haul, this can be a huge help.
Whether you can afford to buy one or you know how to make one yourself, bike trailers
can be quite handy to have around. So, do you have a great bike trailer? Have you
made one that you are proud of? We would love to hear about them! Post links to
pics too if you can.
