This is our Mark 1 market trailer, you can see it around Newtown on Weekends, a mark 2 trailer has been requested by a local and is on the way! If anyone wants some help or ideas to build their own trailer i am happy to pass on my experience from trial and tribulation.

My only suggestion would be to move the wheels forward slightly so as to place the weight more over the trailer's wheels instead of loading up the rear wheel of your bicycle.

Yes, that is true, I notice every creak and groan waiting for the trailer axle to break one day but its been over three years and no sign of it breaking! The axle location was due to the strongest part of the frame at the corner, what has broken is the yoke due to metal fatigue!

I have a Yuba too, alas no electric kit.  I cart around a 7 and 9 year old, mostly dressed in pink ballet clothes.  I get a lot of funny looks.e
Comment by Mark on September 1, 2011 at 10:28am
I too get ALOT of looks but my wife when riding behind me says I miss half of the looks and stares as I go past. As least I avoid the pink tutus, I've got boys!
