Can You Really Tow 500 Pounds on a Bike? This Guy in San Francisco Can.

This fellow on Fell Street says he can tow up to 500 pounds on his long long trailer.

I guess this rig looks like it could handle a passed-out sumo wrestler, if he were properly balanced to keep tongue weight down. So a 35 stone payload seems plausible.

Plaudits.

    If that is the one from the SFBC, I’m sure it can handle that kind of load. I used it once to haul a load of lumber, it was nowwhere near 500#, but I felt it was sturdy enough to haul whatever you could fit on it.

    I’d want Westinghouse air brakes installed on the trailer wheels before going down any kind hill carrying 500 pounds.
