Step 2:

I made the mounting bracket from a zinc plated strut pipe clamp- $0
great job!!!!!! <br> <br>I love repurposing &amp; recycling! <br>
Forgot to ask, what is the black bracket looking thing between the wheels? Is it part of the stroller wheels?
Yes, I used the jog stroller axle and part of the frame. I need to take some pictures of the underside.
How well does it track when turning? I see that it isn't rubbing the tire in the last image but what about while rolling?
It tracks well. I was careful when I measured the mounting arm to make sure the trailer ended up centered behind the back tire. I've made some fairly tight turns without any rubbing.
Great plan! I have a set of wheels like that, and some time on my hands....... I am going to make a similar cart for the back of my power wheel chair! That will help with shopping with the wife for sure! Thanks for the great idea! I like the hitch idea as well. <br>
Good simple re-purposing. Good job.

Great project &amp; nicely done! I need to build a trailer for myself too. I have a set of 20&quot; bicycle trailer wheels, but I like the smaller jogging stroller wheels better. <br> <br>Here is another resource for parts like the ball joint: <br>http://www.mcmaster.com <br> <br>I found some on their that would have cost you less, but you have to watch out for their shipping. Some were made of Stainless Steel (&amp; shielded), and they have one that doesn't need lubrication as well (won't squeak?). Maybe some upgrade possibilities?
Love it, simple, easy to do by most with a bit of diy savvy!!! ;)
good <br>
I like the hitch. Nice.
Thanks, I found that hitch after scouring Google for a simple solution. If I can find the original source I'll try to add the credit.
Very good design, your hitch mechanism is far better than <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Foldable-bike-cart-carrito-plegable-para-bici/#step12" rel="nofollow">mine</a>. Simpler, easier to use. Maybe I will copy it.
Your trailer project is very detailed! I found that hitch after scouring Google for a simple solution. If I can find the original source I'll try to add the credit.
It looks great. Very clean. :D
Thanks!
