Bike Trailer From A Hand Truck

“Anyone (in 10 mins) can create their own $30 very strong bicycle trailer out of an ordinary hand truck as a bike trailer.

Bruce Thomson in New Zealand explains in a slide show demo of many he’s made & used in the past decade. Also gives some ‘surprise tips’ on safety attaching and carrying loads. These trailers take almost no space to store.

Note: With years of hard work, the wheel bearings can fail, keep an eye on them for wobbly wheels, replace the wheels if that happens. With huge weights, the tubeless wheels shear their bolts going over a big, sharp pothole, so don’t put more than about 250kg while towing. Walking it is safer. ”
