Frequently Asked Questions
What are the hitch styles?
There are three hitch styles; the seat post hitch that comes in 5 sizes, the rack hitch that attaches to your bicycle's bike rack, and the axle hitch that attaches to your bike's back wheel and has a low profile tow bar.
To find the right seat post hitch for your bike, use the Hitch Measuring Guide under the Manuals heading.
Why do you use large wheels and why are there 2 sizes?
Large wheels make the trailer easier to pull. Sometimes I find it so easy, I catch myself checking to see if the trailer is still behind me. We use 26" wheels and 700c wheels so customers can match their bike if they want to. 29er's do not fit on the trailer since the 29er tire is so large that it rubs against the trailer.
What are conversion kits
Headings that read Convert a Utility Trailer to a ... provide products that allow you to take a Cycletote Utiltity trailer and change it into a different model. To do this you need either the large (48" long) or the small frame (34" long). Our kits supply all the parts, usually roll bars and fabric, to turn a trailer into a different model. If your frame has 1" plugs of aluminum sticking up from the frame, these can interfere with the new roll bars. Email us some pictures and we will try to help.
