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.

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 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


bubble packed


homemade drop-out alignment tool set i have
2 - 3/8 8 inch stainless eye bolts, 4 - 3/8 grade 8 nuts, 4 - 3/8 grade 8 washers


finished and connected


here is a stock pic of the bicycle connector for related
