The Eclectic Ensemble’s Solar-Powered, Sound-System Bike Trailer

by Josh Lipton

This photo submission shows what I would consider an inspired use of a bike cargo trailers.  For explaining, I’ll let the Eclectic Ensemble take it away.

The trailers are for Music Of The Sun, a mobile, solar- and bicycle-powered outdoor improvisational ambient music series directed toward Minneapolis park and trail system users. Twice a month spring through early fall, The Eclectic Ensemble loads a PA system and instruments into custom-built bicycle trailers and pedal to Minneapolis parks and bike trails to perform for free to the public. Performances happen any time during daylight hours, last 45 to 90 minutes, and can occur on any day of the week.
These are very strong custom built trailers by a TIG welder in Mpls. The A frame trailer weights 210 Lbs. when loaded and the flat bed trailer is 180 Lbs. when loaded.
Videos, photos, and more info on The Eclectic Ensemble’s website. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments
