As a Utility trailer BOB, storage is good, I just sold mine instead,
It was not much good trying to go to Costco, and bring back more
than the 36pack of TP.
so then you get out a proper 2 wheel trailer to carry something
other than your bike touring gear.. they, the Bob trailers do that 1 trick OK.

Great DIY, I did something very similar in the garage. I bought a threaded rod, probably 5/8", and suspended it using 2x4 blocks to the rafter in the corner. I used the flex pins to keep it hanging in place just like it attaches to the supplemented skewer. I don't think I have picture of it, but I will try to remember to take one tomorrow and post it. It sure is nice to get it off the ground and out of the way, though.

Thanks, it's a little tall for me to easily attach it, but I like the idea of being able to secure the wheel to the grate.
