Shape the Way Project

4 March 2020 | By | No Comments

Shape the Way is the (slightly crazy) project of Maxime & Arthur : to cycle along the Atlantic coast from the South of Portugal to the North of Scotland with their bikes and Aevon bike trailer.

Maxime has trained as an engineer. Arthur is a landscape creator. They have never really travelled by bike but… it doesn’t really seem to worry them!

Their project was born from an observation: our hobbies are not always in agreement with the necessity to protect our environment. To surf, enthusiasts are ready to travel for miles looking for the biggest wave, spending hours in cars or on planes. Maxime & Arthur would like to prove that there are other ways to enjoy yourself.
In order to make their values and their passion coincide, the two travellers plan to travel and surf and respect the environment at the same time. Their trip will exclusively be environmentally friendly using means of transport with low impact such as the bike or the train. They will spend their nights camping or staying at people’s houses along the way.

Their bikes are made of spare parts found in a collaborative workshop that helps you repair your bike yourself.
They have built a surf rack that was added to the frame of the STD 100 bike trailer. The bike trailer will carry their camping gear and cameras.

Several stops are planned along the way to meet some active members of environmently friendly associations and partners who support the project: sportsmen, businessmen and such. Of course, Aevon’s team will meet them at the halfway point to talk about the first part of the trip.

All along their bike trip, Maxime & Arthur will make a web series and regular podcasts you can listen to on the most famous apps.

The departure will take place at the end of the month!

The quick release for the Aevon hitch, what’s the use ?

17 December 2019 | By | No Comments

A few years ago, Aevon developed a quick release for the hitch of their bike trailers.

As a reminder, the distinctive feature of Aevon single wheel trailers is to get fixed to the seat post with a hitch. There are about 20 different hitch sizes to adapt to the majority of seat posts.
To be fixed at the level of the seat post ensures perfect handling ability of the trailer. You feel no movement when you’re going downhill very fast and you can even make a U-turn without putting your feet on the ground.
This system is also what makes the success of these bike trailers. It’s the same principle when you learn to ride a bike and your parents support you below the saddle.

 

In order to gain time, here comes the quick release for the hitch.
It is composed of a pin, a nylon cord and an axis.

This system helps to remove the beam of the trailer from the hitch quickly, it only takes a few seconds. It’s very useful when you need to remove or attach your trailer to your bike often or if you travel with several people with several bikes so you can transfer the trailer from a bike to another.

 

Many Aevon travellers decide to go on a trip with several people using only one trailer. The STD 100 bike trailer can carry up to 45kg of stuff. This can be enough when you leave for a short trip of only a few days. In that case, travellers can decide to take turns pulling the trailer.

Tip : don’t hesitate to glue the washers on the beam to avoid for them to fall when you remove your trailer from your bike. To tape it, use epoxy glue, after having removed the grease from the beam and the washers.
