      Hi Robert,
      not sure the CITY will be available again. We may do a rework of it, but for now it has been replaced by the LEAF.
      Sorry not to have better news.

    read another batch of City trailers planned
    Bene Suggs :
    bottom of the wheel forks add a plastic skid pad so the inadvertent inside corner curb contact wont hole the tubing .

    MY bag has no locking zipper * and I suppose they cut the strap too short since it has a second buckle set added to make it long enough.

    *a more water resistant zipper would be a better specification , than common type used ,

    maybe the zipper flap at least in the front seal better against rear Wheel spray intrusion. 2nd row of zipper perhaps?

    Include some 90 degree Valve stem adaptors to make tire inflation easier on those 12.5″ tubes

    I got mine thru the Bike trailer shop in the state of Arizona,

    British summer time weather on the Oregon Coast today ..

      Hi Robert,
      thanks for your remarks. The CITY was designed about 13 years ago by Nick Lobnitz. I’m sure he would be the first to agree, some of the solutions we used back then, may not be “state of the art” right now. In particular the water resistance of the bag. Today zips and material are more functional and reliable. But we did our best. The CITY was never a great seller, so we replaced it this year with the LEAF, which is more of an urban solution. maybe we should look at the design again….;>)) Thanks for reaching out.

    Hi.

    I am looking for something like this! I am currently training to be a surveyor. Rather than driving everywhere I am eager to get cycling about town. This looks perfect. Would an extendable ladder fit on top of the trailer? Could then put the rest underneith.

    Collapsed Size 0.78m
    Width 480mm
    Depth 80mm
    Weight 10.65kg

      Hi Andrew,
      just get a y large and a Y-Surf. The surfboard holder is perfect for carrying a ladder as well and you can put all your stuff underneath. it was planned for this job, but Y-Surf sounded better than Y-Ladder…;:>)))

    This is a VERY useful trailer due to (a) its ability to fold flat very quickly and easily, and (b) its ability to carry large bulky loads wider and longer than the frame due to the wheels being contained underneath the trailer. I tow it behind a Brompton folding bike. I can fit all of my camping gear (including a tent big enough for me to stand up in, electric hook up and 2 bar electric heater (I don’t do “roughing it”) into a wheeled suitcase which is strapped on to the trailer. When travelling by train or coach to my holiday destination, I simply take the wheeled suitcase off the trailer, fold the trailer and slip it into a plastic sleeve which is then bungeed to the back of the suitcase and then I have my folded Brompton in one hand and a wheeled suitcase in the other. Brilliant! Did I say brilliant? Brilliant!! Love this little trailer :)

      Hi Rafael,
      Thanks for your comment. For any kind of dog carrying, you should use a dog box fitted to a Y trailer. Two reasons for this:
      1) The dog should not be able to jump out of the box, because this can be very dangerous for the dog and for the rider in traffic.
      2) The dog needs a solid base. For example the CITY trailer uses a bag without a solid liner, so the dog would be moving all the time. Also most dogs are used to the plastic airplane boxes so are not afraid of them.
      These days the boxes are easy to buy in hardware and pet stores and very easy to fit to the Y trailer, using straps and our quick release box system.
      Get a Y large and a good box and you are good to go!
      Thanks
      Bob
