It's thread resurrection time
Seemed silly to create a new one, and I feel a lot of details on this thread are still relevant, but prices have gone up, and maybe some new ideas have cropped up in the meantime.
My situation, is I am thinking about a trailer of sorts for the weekly shop - only about 2 miles away.
We already have a Kona Minute (Not the huge Ute) which has a childseat and panniers, but that clearly is not enough on it's own.
Hopefully not looking at spending many hundreds; the Burley Travoy caught my eye, but that is £200 without any bags or storage options.
For what I am after, I suspect a flat base would be most flexible, with a whopping great box on top.
I also have one of these, which I bought second hand, but was barely used, and we have not used it much, and soon my little girl will be too big, so perhaps I could cannibalise it:
I have seen this box that looks to have pretty good dimensions of 960mm (L) x 560mm (W) x 460mm (H):https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00UPEHMXY/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza
Alternative bases would seem to be the Carry freedom Y Frame trailer, but those are around £200, although I have put a watch alert on ebay in the hope of one localish turning up - you never know.
I have also seen items such as these:https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bike-Trailer-Cover-140-litres/dp/B00AQ1SXFM/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8http://www.tredz.co.uk/.Avenir-Mule-Utility-Trailer_44913.htm
Which I could potentially use, or cannibalise to fit a box onto.
Has anyone carried out anything like this recently, or have ongoing feedback\advice obtained from peoples past or current setups.
Additionally, I am not sure whether to go wheel attachment, or seatpost.
Planning to fit this to a single speed langster which is not QR, but old fashioned bolts, would that prove an issue does anyone know?
