CYCLEBULLY DIY ELECTRIC PUSH TRAILER PLAN
Top speed and range are determined by the choice of hub motor kit, so you can tailor this DIY bike trailer to your own needs and budget. Make a trailer that will kick you up to city traffic speeds, or make a super long range commuter to run all day long.
This DIY bike trailer plan also includes an adaptable hitch arm that can connect to any bike or trike, no matter how low to the ground or tall it may be. Our plans are all about making this work for you, so you can modify just about any part.
The electric hubmotor on the CycleBully can propel your bike for an hour or more at speeds that come close to the legal city limit, allowing you to safely drive in traffic with a heavy payload.
Because the battery bank is positioned low, the rear drive wheel will maintain constant traction and the trailer will not affect the handling of your bike, remaining almost invisible even when carrying a large load.
With our easy to follow plan, you can build your own electric cargo trailer in a few days using only basic tools and materials. Salvage old bike parts and scrap metal to make all of the components. Nothing used is difficult to find or expensive in any way.
Acceleration with an electric assist motor is extremely strong, so you can climb practically any hill as you bring home a load of heavy groceries or cargo. Depending on your choice of motor, you can expect between 2 to 10 times the power of just your legs alone.
The cargo area is also easily adaptable to the type of payload you intend to carry. Shown here as a flat deck, you can easily strap down large objects using the handy tie down loops. You can also alter the size of the frame for huge cargo capacity.
If you have been looking for a way to leave the car at home and get a little fresh air, then this project is for you. Thanks to the electric assist motor, you can make the trip in less time on your bike or trike than you could in the car, and it will certainly be a more enjoyable journey.
