Did this video help you?

jozsef kowalik: smart

SegaCD: This is pretty slick but costly. Looks easy to make, the only spendy part is that wheel with a motor.

pushtrailer: It takes a very large solar panel array to charge at a rate that would be useful while on the move. Solar charging while parked for a long while would work....but it takes a high rate charger over-night to do the job fully.

crsbt: great idea,,first time ive seen one,,,looks cool.

skipstah70: Wow, and where does all that electric power come from?

whyanotheryoutubeaccount: Cool, well done, congratulations. Do you have any idea how much (surface) solar panels you would need to fully charge the batteries? Any way to integrate them (maybe charge partly while cycling, partly when stopped/camped/expanded?)

HardcoreTeabrewer: The solution for the arm looks very solid. But I need to build one with two wheels -- to be stable enough for my dog. And get plenty of room for a motor and battery.

ggraysonlv: I'm surprised that no one has asked what the ballpark total investment would be (dollars, not hours of sweat equity) to build one of these neat-o propulsion trailers. Probably would be significantly cheaper than the Ridekick, right? 2nd question - will it push a tandem acceptably?

pushtrailer: The trailer uses FOUR 12 volt, 10 amp/hr, lead acid batteries located under the cargo box. They will last up to 20 miles if you use them sparingly to help up hills and for short speed bursts. Visit our site for more information.

andre pata: Best kit ive seen. Congrats.

pushtrailer: Sorry it took so lomg to nawer these questions. Cost varies a great deal. I get reports of $450 to $850. Contact me and I''ll beark it down for you. The more weight it needs to push, the more it drains battery life and general performance. Motor choice is key here.

joyjoy451: i need one

pushtrailer: Well if you did that how would the trailer balance on one wheel? And why do you think the bike should lean independently?

pushtrailer: A builer sent a picture of his dog riding along just fine. Medium size dog to be sure.

pushtrailer: Thank You. Others like it too.....we've sold plans all over the globe for the last three years. Take Care....we extend our best wishes.

stopglobalswarming: Why not use 1 Optima 12v offroad/automotive battery, or some other high output auto/boat battery?

stsgabe: Good idea. How bout a U-joint connecter that would allow the bike to lean independently?

pushtrailer: Thed drive system requires 48 volts....and car natteries are simply too heavy..

Renato G.F. Naso: Excellent idea & very practical!! (Love that funky music too!!...) Ok, I'm going 2 take a look @ the site, 2 C how much it is 4 the plan..

stsgabe: good point, as I've never ridden one,, just seems like it would handle better. It looked like you had to "steer it" as opposed to leaning.. very very cool tho

trailorspam: novel idea,minimal mods and 20 smiles per charge:)

Natasha Klatt: If you go to the Bible, the horse's mouth, as it were, none of this is true. Read about the construction of Solomon's Temple for yourselves at 1Kings & 2nd Kings then 1 Chronicles & 2 Chronicles. All the measurements are there. Then for a completed picture of the outside & inside of the structure go to jw.org It was a rectangle & not very high either. There are colour pictures in the Bible at jw.org on pages B8 & then the 2nd Temple built at Jerusalem, which was razed by the Romans in 70CE as foretold in prophecy. This second temple was also a low rise rectangle on page B11.
VK3TWO: Most people who own this radio LOVE it, despite it being far from perfect. If you haven't seen one in the flesh, you'll be surprised at how small it is. You really have to 'see it to believe it'.
TheCharlaB: Love the fact that you threw in a quick endorsement for the scrubbing bubbles too..lol. 
Brennen Chaput: does this work on a rogers s3???
Lumberman2011: oh shoot I just read 40 bucks..duh pays to read LOL Take care Lee!
