Versatile Single Wheel Bike Trailers Reviewed
One and only complaint I have ever heard from fellow bike folks is "it's a pain to load the trailer and connect it to the bike" due to the single wheel design where a two wheel trailer doesn't flop around. An easy fix is to install an Pletscher Kickstand which provides sturdy balance for the bike while connecting the trailer and loading it with gear. Photos above and left show the now discontinued Nashbar Trailer connected to my Touring Bike with the Pletscher Kickstand. Despite the mixed reviews of that old trailer I never had any problems with it other than it was a bit limiting as the attachment system made it difficult to switch the trailer between different bikes.
When Nashbar decided to discontinue their uniquely simple but at the same time kinda funky attachment system I started looking for a replacement. I have always appreciated the Bob Trailer knowing of their proven quality and reputation for having set the standard of single wheel bike trailer design. Consequently a lot of bike folks refer to all other single wheel bike trailers as "knock offs" of the original Bob Yak Trailer.
