The most common questions answered
Why is the wheel not supplied?
The trailer excels if you use the exact same wheel that you use on your front wheel. Making the trailer the ulimate “extra” wheel is integral to the concept. Also a standard wheel is around $50 but adds far more than that to Australian shipping costs. For Australia it just doesn’t make sense to ship a wheel.
Where do I get a wheel?
Take your front wheel to your dealer and ask for a spare. If you like to go cheap Reid cycles has wheels from $30.
What panniers are recommended?
We recommend Ortlieb and stock the Back Roller Classic. It’s a perfect match and you can find a trailer + pannier package in our Ebay Shop. All panniers with adjustable locking system fit.
How durable is it?
The Extrawheel trailer is the choice of a lot of extreme cycling expeditions. Look at the blogs of some of these adventures. You will find that 7000 km and more have been clogged up in more than rugged terrain. Terrain that you will most likely never encounter. Our own trailer is now many years old, has been from Brisbane to Canberra and from Perth to Broome with little sign of wear. Also noteworthy is that we still have the initial set of spare parts lying around. Nobody has ever asked for spare parts.
Is it safe?
Yes. We don’t know about any issue caused by the Extrawheel. The design actually reduces risks that come with carrying heavy loads. In particular It improves your stability by lowering the centre of gravity It shortens your braking distance by putting the braking loads more even on both bicycle wheels It eases riding on soft surfaces as the load is distributed over 3 wheels It attracts attention and makes you more visible
