Bike riding is a great way to save some gas and use your own legs to get you around town, but when you've got errands to run, you might need some extra towing capabilities. So like any resourceful parent, Shu Sin hacked an old jogging stroller into a brand new bike trailer.

Although you can purchase a new bike trailer, there's no reason not to make your own if you have a DIY eye and parts laying around waiting to be used. In this instance, parts means a jogging stroller and a few pieces of hardware.

Now, we know this hack isn't for everyone, it might require breaking a sweat and of course, having a jogging stroller just laying around, but we wanted to throw it out there for those who might be interested so they can keep their eyes open at garage sales and on Craigslist. You might find a stroller for less than you think and this hack can become a quick possibility!
