Default Re: Trailers/Carts Tips and Ideas

My build is gonna be a 2-wheeled, heavier duty cart. Check out this link on google to see a 3d model...< tart=0>

I have almost all the pipes cut. This will require welding, but i know a nice guy who'll do it for not too expensive.

Some tips...(gathered from a few forums and places- i don't actually have experience driving carts)

-For a stable, heavy duty cart, consider going with a 2-wheeler.
-Lighter, easier-to-handle carts should be one-wheeled.
-The best hitches are either bolted to the axle or seatpost(I think)
-Axle hitches are closest to the axis of the bike(which is the point where the wheels touch the ground) and will have the least affect on handling.
-Seat-post hitches are stronger than axle hitches, but will push the bike around more.
-Check out my site for links and progress on my cart... <>

Have fun!

Last night, I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, and I thought to myself, "Where in the world is the ceiling?"
