Regular Bob Yak or the Yak 28?

I have a bike with 700c wheels. On the bob trailer website it says the Yak 28 for 700c but REI.com says the regular YAK will work for 700c

the regular YAK is cheaper... so which should I go with?

The Yak 28 has a longer fork on it to give you clearance for 700c wheels with fenders, or 29er MTB tires. If you're running narrow 700c wheels w/o fenders the normal Yak will work. If you have fenders or really wide tires the 28 is a better choice.

I recently ordered an Ibex, I went with the 28, since the cost isn't that much more, and it will give me more flexibility of bike to pull it with.
