The next piece in my "replace the car with the bike for errands as often as possible" puzzle just arrived, a Burley Flatbed bike trailer. Roughly 80x55cm cargo area, open ended so anything longer can overlap, max load of 45kg. Fits two big foldable boxes easily 👍

That should allow me to do even big grocery runs including some beverages, do the occasional pick-up/drop-off of even larger packages at the post office, and a lot everything else in my local range that so far needed the car.


My brain's already working on the design of a mounting solution for a bunting, a stand to keep the thing from tipping over when not attached to a bike, and ideas related to easier storage in the garage. CAD and 3d printing to the rescue 🥳
