hello everyone, has anyone bought and had good luck with these china made steel bob type trailers i bought one based on amazon reviews so im not expecting much i can braze and mig-weld to correct anything if necessary. these are sold under various names

ebay: epicsellers = Aosom
ebay: mhcorp = HOMCOM
amazon: MH Union = frugah

aosom seems to be the main corp. name. 30 day return, 90 day warranty

attached is a stock pic.

I bought one from Nashbar a while back, the bike I had the mount nuts on got stolen... Nashbar no longer stocks parts for that trailer, so now I have a trailer that cannot be used. Should have spent the extra money and bought the BobYak which I CAN buy replacement parts for.

I use BoB Nutz to attach this trailer to my hub geared bikes.I think I had to remove one washer.:thumb:

The other BoB trailers come out of Taiwan, also 'China'..

Which trailer? The Nashbar one I have used a pin that went into a hollow nut, the Bob mounting system goes over the nut. Not compatible.

The same trailer as in the picure above.I don`t use the bob nutz on the one bike with quick release,only the solid axles.

the trailer arrived and had time to mess with it. my first impression is this aosom brand trailer was a good enough purchase for me. the trailer dose have sloppy welds like ive read about and the wheel drop-outs needed to be aligned before the wheel could even be put on. the bearings on the rear wheel are precision with dust covers not water proof. i did take off the tire to check everything to my surprise there is a thorn resistant tube inside very thick.

the box is heavy duty 3 cords thick good enough to save
