This instructable will explain how to convert a jogging stroller into a bike trailer for small children, while still allowing the freedom of using it as a jogging stroller.

Step 1: Obtain supplies


1 jogging stroller (found free or cheap at yard sale)

13 hex bolts

13 nuts

13 locking washers

plenty of washers for spaces as needed

1 hitch pin with r clip

1 caster wheel with flat four bolt pattern (check out the bolt pattern on your bike before buying and use existing holes)

L-frame steel with pre-drilled holes (length will be varied due to bike size and stroller construction, I used about 7.5 feet or two four foot poles)

bike to attach trailer to


wrench set

angle grinder (or hack saw)


drill with bits (as needed)

<p>&iexcl;Todo genial gracias por la idea!</p>
<p>Nice workaround, great use for an old beat up stroller</p>
<p>Congrats on being a finalist!</p>
<p>Wow, that's super cool! :)</p>
nicely done. i think i can bypass my &quot;honey do&quot; list to attempt this idea. have some high grade aluminum in the garage that should do the trick. realy like the caster idead for the hitch point.
<p>well done, I like the cross brace.</p>
<p>What an awesome idea!</p>
I was thinking about an idea for such a thing, but you might really want to consider reworking the design with properly designed harnessing and roll prevention and a cage as well
