Local recumbent enthusiast and general bike nut John Climaldi was looking through VeloVision Magazine one day when he came across something that was “so cool” he just had to know more. The product was the Extrawheel, a Poland-made bicycle trailer that wasn’t available in the U.S. …until now.
Despite the challenging language barrier, Climaldi tells me he’s now the official U.S. distributor of Extrawheel trailers. His first shipment is piled high in a storage facility in southeast Portland and he’s busy setting up an online storefront and signing up dealers.
According to the Extrawheel website, these are the lightest single-wheeled bike trailers in the world and Climaldi says they’re great for carrying cargo — especially for mountain biking and recumbent touring — because they don’t wobble.
