We’ve wanted to try a trailer for some time now, but buying a new one is too big an investment for something we might not end up using that much.
We also didn’t want to spend time salvaging parts from other bikes, or do anything complicated like welding.
For us, the solution to this dilemma was to look for a kids trailer that someone was throwing out and then modify it. The idea worked amazingly well.
Just a few days after starting our project, we had a new trailer for lugging things around town or even going touring.
Total cost? Just €12.
