For bike commuters, trail builders, hunters, videographers, or recreation junkies, biking with cargo by using a trailer can make a world of difference when you want to carry more than a grocery bag’s worth of stuff. Child specific trailers work well for carrying cargo like groceries or photo or video equipment. With larger cargo trailers, like the Carry Freedom and the Surly Bill and Ted, you have tons of room for extra-large items. If you want to haul it there is a way to tow it with a bike!
Cargo racks for bikes have been around for a long time. From cross-town commutes to cross-country tours, the tried and true cargo rack gives you space for your adventure necessities. We have solutions for attaching some models of Blackburn racks and Old Man Mountain cargo racks to thru axle equipped bikes. Axle mounted racks are super stable and can carry more weight than most eyelet mounted racks.
The Robert Axle Project was born from a necessity to bike with cargo and attach BOB Trailers to new thru axle equipped mountain bikes. As avid trail builders and off-road bike tourists, the BOB Trailer was a way of life at one time. BOB Trailers provide a simple way to carry trail tools, chainsaws, camping gear, kegs or dogs. Embrace the BOB!
