Have a e-bike and game cart laying around decided to join the two together.

Eazy Peazy hook up and go. Has great range of motion for those 120degree mountain switch backs and lean angle for bermed corners.

Tracks great. Clearly the cart bearings and wheels are Not intended for long or high speed trips.

For this years antelope and elk pack outs it should work great even if it comes down to just using the E-bikes walk along assist mode.

Great idea!

Looks good, Doug! Any concerns about it bending/breaking at the spot where you cut it to bend it hitch out and bolted it to the cart handle? Probably won’t have enough weight on it to be a concern?

not to much concern. It took quite a bit to bend the other portions out of the way to bolt to cart. its a Harbor Freight supplied project. the $9 ball and $11coupler are cheap to replace if need be.

will be loading it up with couple hundred pounds and do a test run shortly

One idea for you, change to larger wheels, make it much easier to pull and on your bike should make it a breeze.

Just curious, what's with that roof extension/dormer action on your house?

not my house. it's neighbors! notice the different driveways. it is some very old unused solar system thing.

larger wheels would work better, but it is an extra expense. will upgrade after I wear these off.
