THE LARGE DOG BIKE TRAILER TURNS INTO A STROLLER/JOGGER
The dog bike trailer/stroller combo option lets you remove the tow bar and add a front wheel and a push handle.
AUTOMATIC TRAILER BRAKES IMPROVE SAFETY
When you tow a large dog, you need more time to slow down. Relying solely on your bicycle's hand brakes may sacrifice your safety as well as your dog's.
Trailer brakes make a lot of sense
Since the beginning, CycleTote has focused on safety. Offering an automatic brake option on our large dog bicycle trailers improves the overall cycling experience, especially in quick stop, emergency situations.
Easy to use
Sturmey Archer hubs have the brakes built into them. On the nose of the tow bar sits a spring mechanism and actuator. As the large dog bike trailer pushes into the bicycle, the actuator pulls the brake cables, automatically. You literally do nothing other than slow your bike down. The trailer does the rest. (Please note, You must remove these wheels with a wrench and screwdriver. No quick release option available.)
YOUR HITCH OPTIONS, EXPLAINED
Our unique seatpost hitch
Stability and safety are the name of the game with our signature seatpost hitch which does not effect bike handling. Also, the large dog bike trailer moves independently of your bike. If the bike needs to be laid down (or there is a crash), the trailer stays on two wheels.
This 40-second video shows what happens when a bike is laid down with a trailer attached.
We took our large cargo trailer for a ride using the seatpost hitch. It's the same size as the large dog bike trailer. Watch this 60-second video and see how smooth it is on rough terrain.
Standard, quick-release axle Hitch
Using a quick release system, this hitch connects at the rear axle offering ease of use. Easy to install and remove.
WHAT SIZE SEATPOST MOUNT DO YOU NEED?
Seatposts differ in size. If you've chosen a seatpost hitch, determine the seatpost size prior to ordering. If you don't, the hitch won't fit properly. Luckily, most seatposts have the size stamped on them:
Loosen your bicycle seatpost. Pull it up and off of the bicycle.
Look at the lower end of the seatpost. A metric measurement should be stamped there.
For seatposts with no stamped size, measure the outside diameter across the middle using a metric caliper.
Need help? A local bike shop should be able do this for free or for a minimal charge. Accuracy is important as sizes sometimes vary by millimeters. Please call if you need more help.
