I don't have a trailer for my bike, but I want to get one. I have a trailercycle that I used to use when I worked with kids. I've started wondering if it might be possible to convert it to a cargo trailer, but I haven't done much thinking yet.
As for carrying stuff on my rack. I've gotten 24 pack rolls of paper towels, other groceries and a broom home in one trip once.
Tonight I'm thinking about trying to strap a frozen turkey to the top of my rack, but I'm not sure about it. I need to get a 20+lb turkey for a party taht we're having this weekend. It got me thinking about other big loads. And I'm still thinking.
(note the tool box and stand on the rear rack)
Damn! I can't even compare to that! The biggest load I've managed lately is a 30lb bag of kitty litter and a couple of 22oz Old Styles in my backpack.
watch CL ads, even for an old crappy child one on teh cheap. thats what I got, got it off freecycle. I certainly wouldnt put any kids in it, but it gets the job done for going to the store and such.
justJason said:Agreed! That being said, I'd really like to eventually get a trailer so I can carry more ample loads from the grocery store, instead of being limited to what I can stuff in a backpack. It'd also be easier to get the cats to the vet (one of 'em weighs 20 lbs!!!!).

That's great, and really that is the sort of load that most people have to carry most of the time. Too bad that so many other people believe that they need a car to carry their kitty litter and Old Style.
