DIY bamboo bike trailer

by Richard Masoner

Bamboo bike trailer

Bike commuters need a way to haul stuff. Carry Freedom will send you their free plans for a bike trailer that you can construct out of bamboo or other readily available materials. They only ask that you:

  1. Tell them what you are using the bicycle trailer for
  2. Send them photos of the bicycle trailer you build
  3. Tell them how to improve the instructions or the trailer
  4. Accept that they might post your email on their blog

Via Treadly and Me. Carry Freedom’s site also has links to other DIY trailer ideas and resources.
