Bicycle Trailers

Bicycle trailers are frames with wheels that can be attached to a bicycle and transport items. These trailers are not simply for inanimate objects; many who use bicycle trailers use them to transport their small children or pets from one place to the next.
Bicycle trailers do not contain motors and are composed of a frame, wheels, axles, a hitch, and a fender. Most frames are made out of metal such as an aluminum or steel blend, but there are some that are still made with wood. The frames are then secured with nuts, bolts, screws, or welding. The axles are similar to the ones used for bicycles, where each axle is separate for each wheel. Bike wheels are best for the trailers while solid wheels are rough riding. Fenders are included to protect the trailer’s objects from dirt. The hitch is clamped at the seat, rear axle, or at the rear rack. It is not advised to use an improvised hitch such as rope or chains as these methods are hazardous. Before you buy a bicycle trailer I would strongly recommended reading this complete guide.
