Bike sharing programs have blossomed in major cities around the world as a cheap way for tourists and vehicle-less residents to quickly get around. But Udi Rimon wants to make the services even more useful with this brilliantly designed Tel-O-Porter trailer that makes rental bikes useful for hauling heavy cargo too.

You won't be moving your entire apartment with one of them, but transporting a hefty load of groceries, or a few items from Ikea, is now possible with one of these in tow. Specifically designed for Tel Aviv's Tel-O-Fun shared bike service (hence the name) the Tel-O-Porter trailer can support up to 100 pounds of cargo, and when unhitched from a bike it can be dragged around by hand like a shopping trolley. So let's just hope they're popular enough to be considered for use outside of Israel.

Not a new thing. Only thing new about it is the proprietary connection part, which means that you have to buy the bike and cart from the same manufacturer, both at an (most likely) inflated price.
