Don’t follow this bike – See Atila on his journey around New Zealand using a Carry Freedom Surf Trailer. In this video he explains why and shows the equipment he is using, including the Y surf. Most of his videos are in Spanish, but this one does have sub-titles. But the videos are very entertaining for non-Spanish speakers. Atila is halfway through his 10,000 kilometer journey and still going strong! And he hasn’t broken the trailer yet, despite it falling into the river in one of the last episodes ;>)
Although the Y has been around for a few years now and has sold throughout the world, we have always been very conscious of the tests and the certifications in the bike industry. For a long time load trailers were tested as passenger trailers. Now there is special EN Test for luggage carrying trailers for bicycles. The renowned German testing agency velotech.de was picked to do the testing.
The Taipei Cycle Show is a regular trip for us each year. We go to visit our manufacturer in Taichung and then we return to Taipei for the show. Usually there are many friends there and we are able to do some good business. This time was no exception. Bob went alone this year, his pals Debra from Rivet Saddles in Sacramento was recovering from a car accident and Richard from Melbourne was moving warehouse, Daniela stayed at home because someone has to work. Anyway Bob wrote a day-to-day journal about the trip
