New Product: Towing Tray

Have you been looking for a way to take more bikes with you? Perhaps you’d rather bike to your cyclocross races to get warmed up? Or maybe you want to take your kid to the park with their bike to gain confidence before having to battle traffic?

Introducing the towing tray, exclusively from Yuba Bicycles. Fitting all v3 and v4 models, the towing tray makes it possible to bring along any bike from a 16″ up to a 29er, with a tire width up to a 2.25″. It is made out of the same material as our Utility decks – recycled milk jugs – and is durable and tough. A side bumper keeps the towed bike from scratching your Mundo. Towing tray kit includes running board with a slot for front tire, adjuster for 20″ or 16″ tires, and bumper.

After installation, to use the towing tray, adjust the support for the size of bike with a screwdriver. Then, use a cam strap to attach the towed bike to the Mundo frame, locking the front tire of the towed bike down to the frame of the Mundo, as shown at right.

    We have a yuba with 2 child seats (not peanut shells), and two large cargo bags. No towing trays. We can tow bikes up to 20″ kids bikes by just slipping the front tire of the bike in behind the cargo bag.

    With larger bikes, like towing my older son’s 26″ street bike, I have to take 1 cargo bag off, and can only carry one child. Using bungees and the rear child seat’s buckles, I was able to jimmy-rig it just fine. But I don’t usually need to tow bigger bikes.

    Hi Sally,
    I think that it *could* work depending on the size of the 5 year old’s tires, and the exact position of the Peanut Shell. If the 5 year old has 20″ or larger tires on her bike, then you probably will need to switch the position of the Peanut Shell and the Soft Spot. As you can see from these photos, the Tow Tray holds the bikes back as far as possible, to avoid a conflict between the tire and the Peanut Shell, you would have to move it forward.

    My suggestion would be to to to your local Yuba Dealer and see if they can get it to work (they’ll have kids bikes to practice with – no need to BYOB).

    Let us know how it works!

    Any chance this can work with a baby seat on the back on the Mundo? My bike is set up with the flat padded seat for my 5 year old and then the baby seat behind for my toddler. My 5 year old is keen to ride along side me on her bike (16″) but I know she’d struggle with a lot of the hills around Berkeley. The towing tray would come in very handy when she gets tired and wants to hitch a ride with me.
