Can a bargain-bin cargo bike trailer compete with a cargo bike? Let’s find out in this featured video by Shifter. In this video Shifter will compare the IKEA bike trailer to a cargo bike.
Here’s what Shifter has to say about comparing the IKEA bike trailer to a cargo bike
My local IKEA was unloading the last of it’s Sladda bike trailers, after the Sladda bike itself was recalled last year.
I’ve always wanted a cargo bike, so I couldn’t resist the opportunity to test whether this entry-level trailer can do what a cargo bike can.
In other words:
Let’s go haul some cargo! (Spoiler: I take the trailer to Costco).
