We are sad to announce that in May 2018 our founder and friend Bob Huddart died after a short illness. Bob will be dearly missed by all of us, but his example of ethical entrepreneurship, his sense of humour and his deep well of wisdom, peace and love will inspire us for years to come. Thanks Bob!
eBob Trailers are Canadian made electric Back-of-bike trailers with disc brakes, signal lights, lockable cargo space and long range 36 volt 20 amp hour lithium ion batteries. They attach to any bicycle that takes a trailer hitch.
eBob Trailers are marketed on the web to anyone that wants or has a bike.
We use only top quality components and materials making a high end, durable hand crafted trailer that will last for many years. While we offer a basic model without motors, batteries and lights, we recommend the Ultra package with two motors, two batteries, brakes, lights and display console. This package also includes controllers and a charger.
Depending on a number of variables, prices will range from $4,000 to $9,000.
Bicycles are the most common form of transportation in the world. Twice as many bicycles are manufactured each year in North America as cars. In the past decade, the number of bicycle commuters in North America has doubled.
With an increasing focus on personal and planetary health, eBobs could be the right product at the right time to empower more people to jump on their bikes and go for a ride.Bob Huddart
Our mission at eBob Trailers is to provide a line of safe, reliable, and enjoyable electric back-of-bike cargo trailers, reducing the environmental impact of daily transportation and encouraging outdoor adventures in riders of all ages and abilities.

Motto: If it tastes good, it must be a locally-grown vegetable.
Mike Werth worked in film and television before moving to the island, where discovering the abundance and variety of life in the Comox Valley recharged his sense of wonder in creation. He likes to travel in the colourful nebula between the creative and technical, and entertains himself easily by cutting and pasting words and numbers.
Motto: I’ll only understand how it works by breaking it.
Don Powley brings many years in electronic and mechanical engineering to eBob Trailers. From designing two-megawatt generators in California during their power crisis, to tiny control circuits for bikes and anything else that moves, Don is happiest with a welding torch or ripping the smoking guts from a computer and putting them back in.
Motto: I can fix that.
Chen Yu Hung

On Hazelmere Farms, a family operation supplying many kinds of fresh produce at the Comox Valley Farmer’s Market (the best in British Columbia, you can google that) he uses local wood to craft objects of functional beauty in his sweet-smelling wood shop.
Motto: If you grow it, people will eat it.
Ross Hunt is the inventor of a tandem bicycle-wheelchair which uses electric motor or pedal power to bring touring freedom to wheelchair users and their cycle partners. His imagination and mechanical design skills brought the first eBob prototype into being. When not designing custom bikes with his company Alternative Cycle, Ross is working on new prototypes for the next variations of electric back-of-bike trailers.
Motto: No hill too tall!
