lights?

Anyone thinking of lights? Wish these weren't so much http://www.hyperlites.com/stdbo.html & would offer a rear+side facing light. I guess something could be made to make them visible from the side...

I have just started reading this thread. Sweet! I started to build a trailer for my Pacific Coast to haul my mt. bike and then realized all I need was a bike rack so I built one........ but a trailer to pull behind my DR would be nice also just for some small loads. MrBrackets would be just the ticket, and like the DR forum I got alot of reading to do here too.

Yep, planning on doing something similar to what Aleeoop did here on his pelicans (on the ActionPacker):

This thread stated in 2006, and I started contributing in 2008, and as far as I know, it's always been in "Vendors"...

Hate to say it, but due to some unexpected expenses this week it's looking i'm going to have to forfeit my number one position on the list. That is, unless someone in the NC area wants to split the cost. Not getting my hopes up, but PM me if you'd be interested.

c2c4c, sorry to hear that you won't be able to get one this go around. Keep in touch, we will work something out in the future.

Ok guys, I got some of the data you've been asking for.....

The basic trailer is just under 30 pounds.
The ActionPacker tub is just under 10 pounds.
The rear fender is just under 3 pounds.

So, a typical setup would weigh about 43 pounds plus your gear. Unless you have a very heavy bike, I'd recommend keeping the total trailer weight under 100 pounds and keeping your heavier stuff towards the bottom of the tub for best handling.

The shipping weight will be a little higher given the box and packing supplies. The shipping box measurements are going to be 36x20x15 inches. The box size dictates the cost more than the weight, given it's size. My zip code is 97478 if you want to estimate the shipping costs yourself.

Some assembly will be required. A box big enough to ship it all assembled would make the shipping extremely expensive. The assembly will involve installing the rear swingarm and shock. I am going to make a simple video to walk you through the process and post it on my website this week.

It appears USPS is a bit cheaper than UPS or FedEx... It just may take a little longer to get there... From my end it means standing in line at the post office with a huge box rather than just pulling up to the UPS depot using their handtrucks and shipping of several huge boxes at once.. I will ship these first few trailers how ever you want, but I will add delivery confirmation and insurance to protect my butt.

I had hoped to have them all done last night..... I should have them done this afternoon however. I'm going to take them all over to ProCycle and get some pictures hooked up to different bikes tonight. They have many of the popular models at the shop so I should be able to get some good pics.

Tomorrow I plan on making a few instructional videos and then packing up the trailers and sending out invoices for them via PayPal.
