    Can you hook this up to a road bike with a quick release rear hub or does it have to be a mountain bike?

    Hey that was a pretty intense video as I watching and understanding the weight distribution of a bob trailer and also understanding what section of the trailer itself determines where you would put suspension is really about alot of PHYSICS. Thankyou for the shout out have a good day

  6. Nelson Fields on July 7, 2019 at 11:15 pm

    can I haul out a deer on it?

  7. Mofo Outdoors on July 7, 2019 at 11:15 pm

    Somebody unboxed it ahead of time didnt they lmao

  8. hoah on July 7, 2019 at 11:15 pm

    I used the non-suspension version of this in Nepal. Great trailer, tracks much better than a 2 wheel trailer on rough ground. 🙂

  9. Ken Gauhl on July 7, 2019 at 11:16 pm

    Will the trailer fit a touring cycle with 26" wheels?

  10. Jakob W on July 7, 2019 at 11:17 pm

    What are the DIMENSIONS (L – W – H) of the bag/cage? Does this model come with STANDARD THREAD for the rear wheel nuts so the hub doesn’t have to be changed?

  11. Philip nik on July 7, 2019 at 11:18 pm

    This a thought about all trailers around on the market.
    I wonder why … The trailer is around 6kg… There are complete bicycles weighting that weight…
    1.wheel weight 1.2kg/1.5kg complete with tire.
    It means the whole thing is super heavy for the size and the weight it is supposed to carry (max load 30/45kg).
    The frame only of the bob it is around 4.5kg I supposed. Bicycle steel frame weight around 2.2kg…
    I do look forward for someone to come up with a practical solution for traveling and trailers with a weight under 4kg

    Great vid- well done! Chrome-moly tubing is the way to go for any true cargo trailer. FYI, just for true peace-of-mind (or in my case to nix my paranoia), plan to replace the stock tire with the Schwalbe Marathon 16×1.75", plus a good quality tube & spare. Money well spent!

  13. ROBERT CAMMARATA on July 7, 2019 at 11:24 pm

    I have a 24"x 3" – 3-speed rear wheel will this trailer hook up to my rear end??? and no I did not mean my ass. LOL If not is there a way I make it work????

  14. William Jones on July 7, 2019 at 11:25 pm

    Wtf are you going to transport with that ?? A pillow ?? Get the fuck out..where you get that from a Barbie toy set ..how cute

  15. Chris Cain on July 7, 2019 at 11:28 pm

    You crazy dude!! Lol! Great video mate, and thanks for reviewing it, think I will get one of these! Keep up the good work, crazy man!!

  16. LittleJimBridger on July 7, 2019 at 11:29 pm

    Dude, love the vid but I’m always watch’n for a wild first nation aboriginal to come charg’n through the door to take your top knot!

  17. jack bone on July 7, 2019 at 11:29 pm

    Hey, good for you, gary busey!
    Nice to see that youve gotten yourself back together.
    The new hairstyle is AWESOME, by the way.

    Just kidding. Hope your sense of humor is as strong as your advice.
    Good video and good to make your acquaintance.
    Be well, My Newest Friend.

    I know you can easily lock the trailer to something, or route a cable through the trailer and bike to secure the trailer, but it would be nice if the attachment used to secure the trailer to the bike had a lock. I carry around a Kryptonite U-lock and cable to secure my bicycle frame, rear wheel and front wheel to something whenever I leave the bike and I can’t keep an eye on it. The U-lock and cable is a real pain to carry around because it is heavy and bulky, but it offers good security. I secure my bicycle seat and post with a bicycle chain, which is always attached. If I know ahead of time that I am going to park the bicycle where I can still keep an eye on it, than I use a combination cable lock to lock the bike, because it is much lighter and less bulky than the more secure U-lock. If I had this trailer it would mean I need another lock to secure everything. I wish these companies would think more about security when designing their products.

    This helped. Thanks. I can’t wait to go on my tour.

  22. Carole FRMY on July 7, 2019 at 11:36 pm

    T’as l’air barré mon pote mais la vidéo est utile! merci 🙂

  23. Darren Jackson on July 7, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    Nice trailer but my problem is I have a Easy Motion Neo Jumper electric bike so I can not use the custom quick release axle, are there any special adapters to get this trailer to work on an E bike.

  24. roger komula on July 7, 2019 at 11:45 pm

    I bought a clone and I’m watching this to see how to install it.

  25. Daniel Pearson on July 7, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    Purchased Ibex 28 for use on my sailboat with my Monteque folding bike. Go to many places where I can take trips on land.

  26. Se Bakker on July 7, 2019 at 11:50 pm

    I absolutely❤️how it has a shock in the back

  27. Joemar Bermejo on July 7, 2019 at 11:51 pm

    Where can i buy this trailer bike ang how much

  28. brighton dude on July 7, 2019 at 11:58 pm

    I always like the BikemanforU videos. I use trailers a lot and I recommend people with bicycles to think about the benefits that a trailer might bring.

    For touring and commuting I like two wheeled trailers. The single wheeled trailer can place strain on the rear axle and as the cyclist leans left or right then they are also moving the mass on the trailer. With the two wheeled trailer the stress at the hitch is very much less and the mass is decoupled from the bicycle much more.

    For touring I think people might want to look at the Cyclone by Radical. For any kind of use they might be interested in the Carry Freedom. There are many others of course.

    Whatever trailer you decide on I think you will find it will add so much capability to your bicycle.

  29. spectre9801 on July 7, 2019 at 11:58 pm

    I bought a used trailer that was missing the attachment clips. I ordered a new set, no problem. They should never wear out being there really isn’t any weight ,or stress on them.

  30. Pa' aquí, Pa' allá on July 8, 2019 at 12:00 am

    That trailer is good to take it to Spain, to the Camino to Santiago road

  31. Jason Stroman on July 8, 2019 at 12:02 am

    Nice. I’d be slightly fearful that the little clips that secure the bike to the Bob may get damaged or lost over time. They are such an integral peace of the system. It’s not like you can make new ones.

  32. Bikepacking on July 8, 2019 at 12:03 am

    does it work for a fat bike  ????? anyone

  33. fenderfan85 on July 8, 2019 at 12:03 am
