Single-Wheeling Trailer! Now Available for 29ers!

Note:  The wheel is not included with purchase.  You are able to use any standard, quick-release mounting wheel for your Extrawheel.  We do have wheels available here if you would like to get one from us.

The Extrawheel Voyager is an incredible single wheel trailer design. Unlike other trailers, the cargo is propped on either side of a full size wheel. This unique placement allows the load to be placed along the the center point of the wheel for tighter turning clearances and a shorter overall profile. The cargo also sits with the center of gravity below the axle of the wheel to keep the wheel pressed firmly against the ground rather than bouncing when riding over rough terrain.

The Voyager is light, sturdy, and extremely compact, designed specifically for transporting an extra set of panniers. The minimalist design makes it easy to pack with all of your bike gear. Almost any style panniers can be used with the Voyager including our Ortlieb Panniers and Vaude Panniers. Loads should be packed evenly with heavier items towards the bottom.

Another advantage to the Voyager is riding with an extra full-sized wheel. The Extrawheel Voyager can also be used with a large variety of front wheels. We offer the option of purchasing the Extrawheel Voyager without a wheel so you can outfit the trailer with a matching wheel. This can come in handy if you need to swap out your front wheel in an emergency situation. The Extrawheel can function with a bent, damaged rim much better than your bicycle can.

Mounting the Extrawheel:The Extrawheel’s mounting fork is made from high tension steel. The fork fits to the Extrawheel’s frame by tensioning firmly over the engagement points. The Extrawheel includes a rear quick release to mount to the rear wheel of your bicycle. The Extrawheel’s fork mounts to a bicycle by spreading it over the Extrawheel’s quick release. The fork snaps into place over the fitted ends of the quick release and is held in place by the fork’s spring tension. The width that the fork spreads open is adjustable to fit variations in bicycle’s rear axle widths. The Voyager trailer also includes 3/8 x 26 Extrawheel nuts to fit the fork.View Bike Trailer Blog’s Instruction’s for Assembling the Extrawheel Voyager.

Great addition to bugout bike

Pretty easy to install, the longer fork is probably better than the standard - which wasn't available - because of the extra clearance, follows like a well trained puppy, connection seems solid if you get the tension right (and as long as you don't overload the Extrawheel). I was even able to attach a spare rear rack I had with a spare front rack brace and a couple of hangers from a surplus store.

Worked for the Katy Trail

Just finished up a long bike ride across Missouri on the Katy Trail. Rolled right in line with my bike and held two "front tire" style panniers. I liked having the security that if I broke a spoke or wheel on my bike I had a spare along for the ride.

Excellent product!!!

The Extra Wheel is an excellent product—it does just what the reviews said it would do! I’m very pleased. I towed it behind my electric bicycle for an overnight 60 mile ride. Once I mastered the feel of the weight when mounting and dismounting, I loved the Extra Wheel. It gives me a freedom to go solo without a sag wagon that I never had before as I was unable to swing my leg over panniers loaded on the back wheel of my bicycle. My only objection was that the directions were awful! Why don’t you have larger illustrations so a person can tell what part of the bicycle you are referring too? That would help a lot.

Excellent Customer service

Like sitting around a campfire.... nice conversation about the product. All my questions were answered in a timely manner. Never felt pressured or just a number. Trusted like a friend. On a follow-up order for a part online, I ordered an extra thing by mistake.... emailed for help....no hassle, taken care of immediately with a refund. These folks make my day.

Extrawheel Voyager Bike Trailer

I give this trailer 4 out of 5 because build quality is good and if it fits you, then you will find little to fault with it. It is light and tracks really well and often I wouldn't even notice it is there. The full size wheel allows for easy rolling over obstacles; I pulled it over some pretty rough terrain and it did surprisingly well. The attachment fork will adjust to fit any rear dropout spacing. But if you need some customization you will probably have difficulties. They could do more with this concept to make it usable to a wider audience.

Fi-rstly, if you want to use it for a fatbike, the good news is that the fat fork option will fit most fat tires. My Big Fat Larry on a Rolling Darryl rim fits but based on the clearances of that tire it looks like the Bud and Lou will rub; it would be really close, but for sure you aren't going to have mud or snow clearance so they basically won't fit. It would have been nice if they made the fat fork a cm longer and at least a cm wider each side to accommodate any fat tire -- they seem to have designed it around the Endomorph tire which is now old school. This clearance issue wouldn't be so much a problem on a trailer like the Bob because the attachment fork is not sprung steel and you can hack and weld away to your heart's content, but you can't do anything with the Extrawheel, you are stuck with what you get, unless you heat it up and bend it which I presume will affect the springiness and strength of the steel. Another big warning is that the attachment fork will not fit over a Pugsley rear end because it is offset 17.5mm and the tire will rub on one side. You can add spacers to the quick release to reverse offset the offset which I think is a bit hokey considering all the forces going onto your axle. But spacers will not work with a hub that does not use a quick release (like internally geared) and has a solid axle. There are not enough threads to allow for spacers and the trailer will not mount on the axle; you will have to find somewhere else on the dropout to attach some individual Extrawhweel nuts.

Second-ly, the dropout spacing of the trailer itself is 100mm, the same as a regular front mountain bike wheel. So the claim that the trailer wheel is swappable with the bike wheels in an emergency doesn't work with fatbikes or a regular 135mm rear wheel, only with regular 100mm front wheels. It looks like you could fit a narrower 29" wheel in there. Also, the trailer's tube spacing is quite narrow and it won't even take a somewhat wide 2.5" regular mountain bike tire. The good part here is that the trailer's tubes are regular steel tubing so you can change it if you are good at metalwork.

T-he other issue is that they have completely redesigned the trailer. It used to have the trailer tubes go all the way behind the tire and wrap around, and the stowage was a mesh sack on each side of the trailer in which you could throw a lot of stuff. This was a nice way to do it. They seem to have abandoned that and have gone for only a 1/2 wheel length true fork with pannier mounts. This makes the trailer lighter and smaller but does not allow you to carry anything behind the axle of the trailer. Not sure why they did this, maybe there were some liability issues. It would be nice to have the option between the two styles however.

A minor quibble is that if you are weak it may be difficult to mount the trailer onto your bike's rear axle since it requires quite a bit of force to spread the fork. Also if you rest the trailer with the attachment fork on the ground then the bearings will get full of dirt from sticking to the grease and will require cleaning and re-lubing every time before mounting it.

All in all a great trailer, but I would like to see 1) increased dimensions for the fat attachment fork to fit any fat tire, 2) options for three different hub widths in the trailer (100, 135, 170mm) along with wider tube spacing for fatter tires to allow for true swappability with the bike's wheels, 3) a couple different cargo mounting options rather than the simple pannier mounts.
