Speed Lobster Bicycle Trailer/Tent Combo

Speed Lobster Bicycle Trailer/Tent Combo

Bicycle touring is a big part of my cycling adventure and so I am always on the look out for new gear in the world of bicycle touring. Thanks to a post over at Brentrideronline [BROL] I came across the Speed Lobster bicycle trailer/tent combo so I thought I would share the find here.

Whilst personally the Speed Lobster is not for me as it seems that it locks one into using the trailer/tent combo or having a separate tent for uses when the trailer is not required I am sure it will appeal to some.

Personally I would rather stick with my Extrawheel Voyager[ or other suitable trailer and my Tarptent Scarp 1. So much more flexibility in terms of use and the option to choose better quality gear as desired.

That said, if you want to see more, there is also a mpg movie available for viewing.

    My first thought when I looked at this was, “my god, look at the sheer size of that thing!!”

    Then I watched the video, and it was confirmed – this is easily a 3 person tent. I think if you were group camping, this might be something to entertain, especially if you’re trying to pack up and roll out of there as fast as possible. However, I’m sure there are cheaper, easier alternatives – like as you say, the Extrawheel voyager and a regular 3 person 4 lb tent.

      Pretty much my thinking as well. A novel idea but not really practical unless touring with a trailer is the only way one will roll.

Please share your thoughts ...
