Burley Travoy trailer - looks like it will carry my golf clubs.

This is one of the most innovative bicycle accessories that I have seen. I'm about ready to plunk down the dollars. I've been looking for a way to haul my golf clubs. This looks like it might do it. Not only that, but it seems like it could be a problem solver for many commuters that ride road bikes and don't want racks & panniers, or back packs.

I have one and really like it. I don't carry golf clubs but I do carry two big camping chairs, small table and sometimes a small bbq for weekend picnics with my wife. The trailer can sometimes be top heavy and since it clamps high, you do have to be cautious of your speed around corners. I also bought the Market Bags for the grocery runs.

I started golf when I was a kid, and we would ride our bikes to the local par 3 course pulling our bags on our hand carts...

Don't use mine for golf clubs, but I bet it would work just fine for that. It's a great product. Very strong, super easy to use, and you barely notice it's attached. The key is that you just want the item to be narrower than the wheels so it can sit nicely on the bottom shelf of the trailer. If it was a lot wider, you'd have to hang it with straps from the side anchor points to keep it from rubbing on the wheels, but that would have to be a pretty big golf bag.

If your only goal is to carry golf clubs have you looked if any of the golf club carts can be used as, or made into, a trailer? Seems like golf is a fairly preppy jock sport where you'd get a lot of pressure to conform if you did anything odd.

Yeah, I don't think that you'd want to show up with anything that isn't carbon fiber------- and that's not limited to the trailer.
