Bicycle trailer oven - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Bicycle trailer oven

    I'm planning to build a pizza oven on a trailer that i can tow behind a bicycle.
    Obviously this throws up a lot of design challenges and most traditional materials are out.

    The basic concept at the moment is to make a very small oven, only big enough for the fire and a snack sized pizza.
    Obviously we need a good hearth and are willing to concede some weight here.
    Using sheet metal and air pocket insulation is my current plan for reducing weight. Perhaps modifying a keg?

    If anyone has seen or built one of these, has tips on lightweight materials or other ideas, their input would be much appreciated.

    Hello Timbersmith,

    Your quest is not uncommon. Lots of us have wanted to take this 'pizza show on the road'.

    I built a 'light weight' oven and have enjoyed having the thing. It is great to be able to make a good pizza most anywhere you can go. This is the link to the story about the oven I made. It is a direct copy from an oven that a guy named Brookencookie made, and he reports good results from his oven also.


    There are several different ovens that have been built from materials other than masonry; along the portable line. If you search this forum with the phrase "portable pizza" you will have access to several discussions about, and construction stories detailing the building of light weight ovens. You should be able to design an oven that will work with the materials you have available after educating yourself with the stories from others.

    What materials do you have available? What materials can you fabricate? How much of a budget do you have for this project? These are the questions you will need to detail as you design your project

    Good luck, and keep us posted with your story about your build! Do send along pictures and write with any questions. We might be able to help with the details.

      No, seriously, heavy things can be moved by bicycle trailer. Here's an outfit that moved the entire contents of a commercial bakery by bike in Philadelphia:
