I was in a Go Outdoors store the other day and rather liked the trailer they were selling. I attaches to your bike and was a quite usable size. Now I'm on the rock and roll I think the bike will be used to go shopping and down to the allotment etc.

Has anyone ever made one? I have basic DIY tools including a MIG welder and wondered if anyone has ever tried it?

Yep, it is a Bob Yak. Best trailer out there. You can find them here:

http://www.bobgear.com/

Was looking for one myself, but they were a bit too pricy for me. I bought the 'cargo' model from croozer. Works well and not too expensive. See here:

If you have the tools it shouldn't be too difficult to build something like this yourself. Good luck.

Got one of them new fangled EBC ones and its bloody great.

Even better got it nearly new for 65 quid, can't see the Bob Yak is twice as good apart from the waterproof bag

Think the EBC wins hands down because it can be folded up, only bought it for the flag really :)
