Trailers – Kid and Cargo Options

Burley Piccolo

We think this is the best option for kids ready to ride on a bike seat! Adjustable seat and handlebar height means growing kids will be comfortable.  The 7-speed shifter lets them learn to select gears and really help with the work of pedaling. The rack-hitch attachment, complete with patented aluminum ball-bearing guided hitch help make this one of the most stable and secure trailer-bikes around.

Surly Bill and Ted Trailers

Want to haul even more stuff?  Surly has just introduced the first heavy duty cargo trailer that is production made (not custom) of which we are aware.

Two different sizes, but both can carry 300 pounds!  Bill is the long one (63″ x 24″), and Ted (32″ x 24″) is the short bed (get it?  Bill has more letters than Ted, so it goes with the longer trailer).  The beds and hitch are constructed mainly of TIG-welded 4130 CroMoly steel and 304 stainless steel hardware where appropriate and ready to accept your customized decking, box, ar any cargo arrangement that meets your needs.

The beds include threaded eyelets for bolting down decking, corner posts, or creating other custom accessories using readily-accessible materials from your local hardware store, lumberyard or home improvement store.

Both trailers sport 16″ wheels and  a spiffy universal hitch with a proprietary axle skewer or thread-on axle nuts. The hitch works with full-suspension frames, disc brakes, rear racks and fenders. It adjusts to accommodate hub widths from 120 – 145mm and allows you to align the center line of the trailer on the center line of the bike. It will work with bikes that have wheels as small as 20″ and as large as 29″ while keeping the bed level with the ground. This is especially important when you are hauling long items that hang off the back of the trailer (lumber, tubing, ladders, etc.).

Ted - $950*

Bill – $1050*
