2011 Surly Trailer

A late addition to our trailer series for a couple weeks ago. An amazing new trailer design from Surly, this will allow you to move your bed, fridge and kitchen sink by bicycle!

Surly Trailer


It will haul 300lbs of stuff

Two lengths available – short (32″ – pictured) and long (64″)

DIY mounts all over it. Make your own bed, add some uprights, strap down your friends

16″ heavy duty wheels

Fits on bike frames with wheel size. from 20″ to 29″ with height adjustability to keep the load level – also adjustability to keep the trailer centered on the rear wheel.

The hitch is compatible with most bikes – full suspension, disc brakes, whatev (see caviats below.)

Fits 120mm to 145mm rear frame spacing

Fits through doorways

Won’t fit Pugsley. Won’t mount on Big Dummy axle given the space taken up by the Dummy’s rear bits. Mounting it through the rear horizontal tubes of the Dummy will be a possibility, but the trailer’s load limit will be reduced since the trailer is no longer attaching at the axle.

MSRP – $750 short – Surly Ted $775 long – Surly Bill

It will cost roughly the same as a Big Dummy if you get a new $1100 or so bike at the same time. It will fit in your apartment better than the Dummy and be removable for times you don’t need it.

ETA: Spring 2011
