One of our crazy bike trailer pulling readers sent us a picture of his super-sized bike trailer setup. This is a Swiss-made four-person bike made by a company called Zem. Only 300 of these bikes have been made.
The trailer being pulled looks like it’s built for a car, but is also perfect for a 4 person powered vehicle.
Jay is looking around for a bike cargo trailer in LA for an upcoming trip:
“No idea where you are located but wonder if you might know anyone near Los
Angeles that would have a bike and trailer I could borrow/rent around Apr
7th-9th. Coming in to LA from Chicago and performing at a wacky musical
venue in Burbank and need to duplicate my home set up. Trailer needs to be
appx 2ftX5ft and sturdy enough to carry a set of drums. Happy to send a pic
of my current set up. Help would be greatly appreciated or if you know
anyone I might contact. I could return the favor and even let someone
borrow my 4 person ZEM bike if you ever make it out Chicago way”
If you’ve got a trailer Jay can use, post it up in the comments
Have a look at this video of the Zem and trailer at Tour de Fat Chicago 2008.
Recently Jay was kind enough to let Steve and Team Banana split barrow the ZEM for their 2009 RAGBRAI trip. Check out the story!
