Default Re: Pulling Trailers (wagons)

I have never towed using a motorized bike but am wanting to build a trailer for myself soon. You definately need good working brakes because the weight adds to the slow down distance and time. I have never had a problem with the handling of my bikes because of the trailer. I liked a design that used a hitch that was mounted on the seat post, but want to try mounting on the back of a rack. I use a hyme joint for the articulation. You need to adjust turning just a little as well as you take up more road so need to make it very visible.
