I posted the following in other forums and received some good advice. Since this is my favorite place and you’ all my favorite forum members, I thought I should share the question with you.
Well, we finally got the skewer needed to hitch up the BOB to the Tandem. Now we're pulling it all over so as to get used to it. We put groceries and such in it. The trailer hardly feels like anything back there on the flats. We haven't experienced any big hills with it yet. Putting the tandem and trailer away is pretty tough and is taking a lot to get used to. When the trailer is empty, the wifey picks it up while I back the tandem into the garage and negotiate around the front of the car. When the trailer is full, it's quite a chore backing it all in!
We'll use the BOB trailer and tandem on our upcoming TransAm ride. (Still a couple of years away).
Anyone else use a BOB with their tandem? Any advise would be welcome!
