As the Bike Trailer Shop has been growing, we’ve been dabbling in some manufacturing. Our business started with manufacturing roots with the development of the Wandertec CELLO Bike Case for BOB Trailers. The evolution of this product lead us into the realization of the potential for a Bike Trailer specific webstore.
Our continue involvement with manufacturing has mainly been in the direction of small specific use accessories for BOB Trailer. We’ve manufactured a variety of small custom kits to do things like allow a Greenspeed Rack to mount on a BOB Trailer, to mount a fender light to the BOB Ibex and to ship a BOB Trailer in a Ortlieb Big Zip. We’ve also manufactured 2 other BOB Trailer specific products, the Wandertec SAX – BOB Cargo Liner and the Wandertec Cargo Net which is excellent for BOB Trailers and many other bike cargo trailers.
This gradual evolution of product development has lead towards and interest in manufacturing our own bike cargo trailer. We are currently in the final stages of launching our own bike cargo trailer. We have not yet published any information on our own 2-wheeled cargo trailer. Let us know if you’d like to be added to our update list for this trailer.
As we gear up for launching our own bike cargo trailer, we are interested in finding a manufacturing specialist to join our team (please read the job description below). We are interested in developing and manufacturing a range of load beds, boxes and cargo endorsements to work in a variety of capacities on our cargo trailer. We are also interested in developing and manufacturing accessories for Xtracycles and BOB Trailer’s.
If you are interested in the position and possibly joining our team, please email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
