Homemade Bike Trailer by Daron Taylor for his Budding Entrepreneurial Lawn Mower Business | @CityofCleveland
I love this story! Daron Taylor is a Cleveland teenager who runs D’s lawn care LLC who went viral in 2016 for his homemade bike trailer made primarily of salvaged 2″x4″s for transporting lawn mowing equipment – so he could reach clients outside his immediate neighborhood. He’s back for the summer with lots of Instagram goodness and I’m just now hearing about his story – it’s great, and from recent pictures has upgraded to a new mountain bike frame with shock suspension 🙂
