Having Jesus carry me so I leave no footprints.

Trying to offset my carbon footprint, which is stupid because we all know that carbons don't have feet, they have evolved fins much like the mudskipper.

Anyways I am trying to find a trailer so that I can pedal my ass up the Poudre with me boat. I am thinking of the Burley Flatbed trailer and just running a cam strap through the safety bar on my end of the boat and camming it to my seatpost to keep the overhanging end up. I have also looked at the Paddleboy Flyer but it seems like it cater more to the canoe and touring kayaks. Plus they are both 200 bones.

If anyone has any ideas that would be great or a Flatbed they want to sell for cheap.

P.S. I don't want to change the geometry on my bike so an Extracycle is out of the question.

Thanks

Kayak bicycle trailers by Tony's Trailers


Looked saweet till I saw the price, 500+ but might help with design ideas if you build your own.

I think a flatbed will be simplest and cheapest, biggest problem being mounting it to bike unless it was made for it.

Isn't that road the most dangerous, for bikes, in Colorado? I wouldn't ride a road bike up the poudre...much less one that is towing a trailer. Get an electric car and by wind energy.

I second GAtoCSU you're crazy to ride your bike especially with a trailer, kudo's for the idea but really - how many of those retarded "Mustang" or Motorcycle clubs freakin' RACE down that twisty-turny road??

I have driven Hwy 14 way too many times to keep track of and can't imagine riding my bike weekly/daily thru the canyon.

No bad feelings! Just want you to be able to enjoy boating, not be in a body cast cause of some r-tard driving 55mph thru the narrows.

I knew a guy who built a kayak trailer out of one of those baby trailers. You could probably pick one up for super cheap at a garage sale. A couple hours of modifications later and you'd be pulling your new precious cargo.

motorcycle with sidecar

My idea is to turn a sidecar into a flatbed that I can strap a kayak to. This way you can have someone in the kayak when you run shuttle (yep, super sketchy). I don't want to mangle either of my current bikes so I've got to find some more room in the garage for a 3rd.

Can't you just use one of those little red wagons we all had as a kid? Maybe even replace the little wheels with some big ol' lawnmower wheels. And the bright red color would double as safety for the motorcycles.

I have ridden up the Poudre before it ain't that bad. I actually don't care about my carbon footprint at all. I am a selfish person and really I just want to offset my video games and high sugar diet by getting some cardio so I don't die of a heart attack.

So... I noticed no one recommended PVC. I think that would be so easy and cheap. You could make one for like 100 smackers. Find some bike shop that has some old wheels lying around. Don't know... just a thought.
