Doug’s Big Load Bike Trailer

by Josh Lipton

Thanks for the great pics and write up Doug!

“Hey just saw your post about the lack of pictures you’ve received and decided to send this in. The is the trailer I built over the summer. It was made with steel tubing from an old grill and a benchpress bench. I cut and welded it all together including the dropouts which I made from some steel plate. The wheels are from garbage picked bikes, so this was a pretty cheap project. The deck is 28″x40″ which actually makes it perfect for hauling a single house hold appliance, because appliances are made to fit through doors that wide. I included a spot for the toolbox so I could carry extra straps, bungee cords, and tools. I have used it to move the grill in the picture and plan on using this to go dumpster diving, and to run errands. I bike commute every day and having trailer is essential to doing more with a bike.”
