Radtouren (Bike Touring) Magazine in Germany has just tested load trailers in its latest issue. The German Magazine has a circulation of 40,000 readers and is dedicated to touring with bikes. The „Y“topped the list with the best „price-performance ratio“ of all load trailers.
If you have come here because your wheels are stuck in the trailer. we will help you solve this problem. Our first piece of advice is – Don’t let it happen in the first place. Axles get stuck because they have rusted. It usually happens to trailers on long tours, or trailers stored with the wheels on over winter. Always store the trailer with axles removed, remove wheels overnight when touring, and keep the axles lubricated with oil.
But now the good news – We’ve never come across an axle that can’t be removed.
German kayakers Olaf Obsommer, Jens Klatt, and Philip Baues have racked up an impressive list of whitewater expeditions in exotic locations from Chile to Nepal. Then a friend called them out. “That’s pretty cool,” he said. “But what about the environment?” The question inspired the trio to take a more ecological approach, traveling by bicycle to some of the most remote and pristine rivers in Norway.
Papete – Pedal & Paddle Edinburgh to Exmouth
Alistair travelled over 150 miles of water and over 500 miles of land and has now finished his challenge! Setting off from Edinburgh on 16th August 2013, Alistair Cope cycled over 500 miles towing his canoe and paddled over 150 miles with his bicycle on board his canoe.
TAUKO is a small Helsinki-based eco-fashion label, they make some great clothes and just recently they were in Copenhagen driving around the city by bike, towing their own mobile store on a Carry Freedom Y. Thanks to Till for the great photo. Check out TAUKO using the link here >>>>>

Boy, you’re gonna carry that weight. Carry that weight a long time!
Probably singing about something else and not about bike trailers, we still like to think it could have been the fab 4 looking for an alternative way of life.
