I had been hoping this would go on sale. It now is, but only after I already bought a trailer from Craigslist.

I am going to use my trailer on the Pacific Coast tour this summer.

I recall a thread here where that trailer got bad reviews, as in it fell apart (on the Pacific Coast if I recall).

Does anyone have a link to the negative review of the trailer?

I tried searching but only found positive reviews.

The trailer that I am taking on the Pacific Coast is an older Burley that I got on Craigslist for $95.

mattm3,

The trailer that you are talking about is the one-wheel bob yak clone. Nashbar is discontinuing that one and replacing it with a new version.

Here is the old one-wheel trailer that had problems:

Here is the one-wheel version that they are replacing it with:

The trailer that I mentioned in my post is the two-wheeled "kid karriage". All of the reviews that I have read for that trailer have been good. It is covered and has bright yellow and blue fabric for increased visibility.

Here is the Nashbar Kid Karriage trailer:

I went for a ride yesterday with the Burley trailer that I got from Craigslist.

It is amazing how much extra room passing cars give me when they think that there is a kid in the trailer!

Oh, I see. I didn't catch the part about the "holds two children." I did find it odd that you wanted to put children in a one-wheel trailer. Duh. That one-wheel bob trailer is also on sale right now for $77.99.
