    Baby Trailer

    I am thinking about buying a stumpjumper FSR soon and am wondering towing a baby trailer would be bad for the rear suspension? Anyone done this and if so did you have any problems?

    I see how it could put a bigger load on the pivots and stuff, but I dont think it would damage anything.

    Just a note of warning, Put helmets on the kids even in the trailer. My buddy had his two little boys in his, hit the edge of a curb and flipped the trailer. The kids were o.k., small scrapes, but never wanted to ride in the trailer again!

    Yeah I flipped mine on a public road. It flipped almost totally upside down and was skidding down the road.
