Cargo Hitch with Trailing and Offset Modes

by Kayla Mager

Having to tow lengthy cargo (golf clubs, fish tanks, suspiciously unmarked cardboard boxes: the essentials) is definitely a problem, but one of our readers has come up with his own hitching system to offset the literal “drag” of figuring out how to set up your trailer to fit in bigger packages.

The concept allows for both a regular tow directly behind the back wheel and a secondary option which has the trailer riding off to the side of the cyclist, making room for bulkier loads. No separate trailer or side car required!
