    Busy bike trailers

    Has anybody ever used or heard of busybike trailers? I've spent a few hours ( joking, it's more like a few hundred hours) looking at different bike trailers, hitches, work trailers, fun trailers, single wheels, double, whatever I could dig up. I have a good idea for a trailer I want to do but kept looking for a few key details. These trailers are pretty much everything I was thinking.

    Busybike-trailers.com
    Or lookup up busy bike trailers on YouTube .


    Curious what people think.

    Interesting trailers. They look nice, and reasonably light weight for heavy duty cargo trailers.

    I do find it curious using bolt together aluminum extrusions vs a welded frame. Of course, it makes shipping easier.

    75 kilos for the plastic wheels would seem a bit limiting, but 150 kilos for the spoke wheels would be more reasonable, and would make for a pretty heavy load.

    Personally on my trailer, I chose to build a frame component on both sides of the wheels which makes extremely strong and stable wheels, as well as giving some wheel protection

    The ball hitch looks nice, but is is specific to the BusyBikes, and not generally adaptable to a variety of bikes? I do like some kind of rigid hitch linkage, but there are a few different ways to achieve it.

    I stumbled upon the trailers looking at other builds on YouTube. I was searching for ways others were hitching trailers. The hours and hours spent surfing the net for a hitch I would feel comfortable with and like. I couldn't believe it when I came across these trailers, not just one hitch but 2. I was also surprised I didn't see something here. Maybe there is somewhere, I just didn't see anything on this forum.
