The Bike Friday Travel Trailer includes everything you need to make your Travelcase into a tow-ready trailer. The system includes the aluminum trailer frame, two wheels, protective socks for packaging and one reflective flag and thumb nuts to connect your travel suitcase. Also included a light duty axle hitch and air nipple.
Every Bike Friday needs a way for the trailer connection to attach to the bike. Many of our bikes have a left chainstay braze-on to hold an air nipple which quick-connects to the trailer.
The trailer package also comes with a rear hub axle mounted light-duty hitch (part ID 15125). This hitch can be used in place of a bike-specific hitch, or as a connection method on another bike so you can swap your trailer system quickly to another bike. There is a spare male air nipple included as well (integrated into the axle hitch).
Two 12" pneumatic wheels are included with all attachment hardware and a neon reflective triangle. Just add a Travelcase and get on the road.
The gross weight limit for the trailer is 75 pounds. This includes the weight of the trailer (6.7lbs/2.95 kg) and if you are using the F'Lite case (13lbs) so the total capacity for your gear is 55lbs.
For more carrying capacity, we also offer the BF Travel Trailer Heavy Duty Version which has a gross capacity of 100lbs.
All felt packing bags and blankets are made from Eco-Fi fleece, a 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
