The true Strength of the Y-Frame bicycle trailer is flexibility.
Strap a load straight onto the load bed,
or fit a bag or box to suit your purpose.
100's of commercially available bags and boxes will bolt or strap
onto the trailer, for example:
- Ortlieb's waterproof rackpack bag, 48/96 litre capacity
- Fold-flat plastic box with lid 96litre capacity.
- Lockable durable aluminium chest, 58-288litre capacity
- Indestructible Explorer diving cases
- Rimowa and Samsonite suitcases
Separability You can separate the Y-Frame bicycle trailer in about four seconds.
Pull the pin that holds the handle, and push the center of the hubs
to remove the wheels like on wheel chairs.
Durability A simple design made from high quality components, that will go on and on. Notice the sealed bearings puncture proof schwalbe marathon tyres, and stainless spokes.
Redundancy Peace of mind for those far from the beaten track. If the frame welds fail, the trailer can work until repair, be it bolted or welded. Any local blacksmith can make a pattern trailer from steel. No component is rare or irreplaceable.
Expedition touring A durable simple bicycle trailer that is field repairable.
Carry more, more effectively and efficiently than bicycle panniers.
Industrial A new way to work. Adapt your trade to bicycle trailer life or adapt it to your load. Hay bales, canoes, hot dogs, stained glass windows, Ice cream.
Commute Small and light, slice through traffic with your computer and cloths change. Teachers carry all your books.
Shopping A weeks shopping for two in a single trip. And a bicycle trailer that discretely waits for next week.

Trailer Snake We can supply a bracket so one trailer can tow behind another. This allows the one tow bike to pull unlimited numbers of trailers.
Hand Cart Handle A simple handle that pins to the right hand Y-Frame arm. This allows you to walk with the Y-Frame while keeping the load bed level. It does not need removed for cycling.
Extra long handle Got a kayak, or canoe that you need to tow. We can make longer towing arms to extend the distance between the trailer and the bike. The longest we've made allowed a Y-Large to tow a 17ft long Kayak.
