How do I install a trailer?

We sell an adapter that fits most Thule, Burley and Croozer trailers. You can add it as an extra when buying your bike on our webshop or retroactively contact us if you are already an Ampler owner.  

In this video on YouTube we show you how to install the Ampler trailer adapter: 

Step-by-Step instructions:

  1. Remove the nut from the left side of the rear drop-out. Do not remove the black washer from the rear dropout - keep it on the axle.
  2. Attach the adapter to the axle. Use a 15 mm wrench (on older adapters you will need a 19 mm wrench) and make sure that the adapter is properly secured.
  3. Remove the topmost bolt on the adapter with a 13 mm wrench, leave the two silver washers on top of the adapter.
  4. Finally, use the bolt to fasten the trailer hitch onto the adapter.

The trailer has no influence on the maximum total weight of the e-bike.

But please note that the load the e-bike has to pull has a different effect on the handling - it can shift the centre of gravity and affects the steering of the bike. Also make sure that you can brake properly even with a high load. The battery range will also necessarily be lower, this depends on many different factors.
