    wike trailers

    So what can anybody tell me about wike trailers? I'm looking for a cheap cargo trailer and their budget trailer and the DIY kit both are very cheap. They appear to be a small hard working company and that is a plus to me. Mostly looking for a grocery getter.
    Thanks,
    Scott

    I've used a Wike grocery getter for three years, and I'm happy with it. Yesterday we hauled about 150lb of compost 15km, and it handled it fine. Support from Wike has been great on the one occasion I had to ask for some spare parts.

    Advice:
    - Shell out for the steel 20" wheel option if you're going to be hauling weight
    - Crank down your rear quick-release nice and tight over the trailer hitch if you're going to be hauling weight.
    - Try and grease or corrosion-proof exposed metal surfaces if you're going to ride in salt slush or winter crud conditions
    - The 'third wheel' push-buggy option is neat, but not all that worthwhile

    I've got a two seater kid trailer and like it. The quality is good.
