I had no idea a bike could pull that kind of weight! :shock:

And stopping??? :shock: :shock: :shock:
well the trailer wheels probably have brakes also. but pulling a car would be interesting to see. but that car doesn't look like it has much steel on it.

ok - so he can pull it.......and he can stay upright. The weight of the vehicle is not centered on the bike - I get that. But I would think STOPPING in a hurry would be an issue. Even with the weight centered on the trailer - it's still gonna PUSH.

Where are all these so called "engineers" on this board? :wink: :lol:

Yes it has brakes but.......... The pulling vehicle should have atleast 10% tongue weight on the hitch and I also believe the puller must weigh 25% of the load being pulled to meet our DOT standards??? I can't see this contraption ever being used in North America as it would require a Pilot Car in front and rear thus making it not cost effective.......

That's really great. There would be periods when it could not be used in the Northern U.S or Canada due to snow, ice, cold, etc.

Still a great :idea:
