Didn't someone on here hunt off a mountain bike with a homemade trailer? :lol: I've searched without luck, but I could've sworn there was a post on here somewhere about how the trailer was built. :)

Wes, I remember it but can't seem to find it. I think it was inside another post. I'll keep looking too.

It's hard to tell from the pics, but what did you use for the joint at the front of the trailer?

Which joint your refering to Wes? You mean the universal joint. It's a 5/8" bored U-joint that's readily available at your local Granger Industrial Supplies. I tapped both bore end with half inch standard thread tap. The attachment on the bike seat post had a half inch bolt welded on the end part where the u-joint is to be attached and locked in place using a half inch nut. The goose neck is attached via the same method but the half inch bolt is not welded. Actually I just drilled a slightly larger than half inch hole and slip the bolt in place and threaded the same way to the u-joint and lock in place using half inch nut. This is the best way to couple the trailer to the bike in my opinion to amount for all the lateral, vertical, side to side twisting and turning movements of both the bike and the trailer, and their pretty solid to boot. My friend shot a very large blackbear and carried it 8 miles out with one of these trailer so I know it can handle at least 250 lbs of load. Hope this will help. DFPosted Image

If that's all you're going to carry, you don't really need a trailer. Mine is designed to haul camping gears, supplies and game out. I've seen those trailer being abandoned on the trail where we hunt. They just not built for heavy use.
