Trailer-maker is Scotland's 'most visionary' young business

Nick Lobnitz and his Carry Freedom trailer won £1000 and an award plaque for the mantelpiece from the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust, which assists young people aged between the ages of 18 and 25 to set up in business for themselves.
Publish date:

Twenty-five year-old Lobnitz is a mechanical engineer by training but is carving a niche for himself in the world of bicycle trailers.

His first Carry Freedom trailer - the City - doubled up as a suitcase on wheels, and was suitable for towing behind folding bikes as well as standard bikes, and is now joined by two heavy-duty utility trailers -the Y-frames - and a dog trailer - the bArk.

Lobnitz said he's selling 4000 trailers a year, with distribution outlets across Europe and East Asia.

His sales will increase following a deal with Dahon which has commissioned Lobnitz to design a trailer suitable for its folding bikes.
