    BOB ibex trailer on a full suspension bike?

    I'm interested in doing a three to four week tour though the Rockies on a full suspension bike. Haven't bought a bike yet, but I'm hoping to get one that would be compatible with a BOB ibex trailer. Does anyone here have this kind of set-up?

    I'm sort of considering the Gary Fisher HiFi deluxe 29er. I'll probably be spending some time on pavement getting from place to place, then unhooking the trailer and going for some trail rides. For lengthy stints on pavement, I could switch to smoother tires which I can easily carry on the trailer, I suppose.

    I think some bikes like the Trek Fuels have rear dropout spacing that is too wide for the BOB trailers. I could also consider another brand of trailer other than the BOB. Any sort of advice regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    I remember someone here a couple of years ago did something similar. His name was Rocket Dawg. If you search through his messages you'll see him talk about it including the gear he put together. You'll have to read through his post history though as he hasn't been around in a couple of years.

    Here's one of this posts:
