Pros

I just used this on a 2 month bicycle tour in Montana, Wyoming and Canada and it served me wonderfully.

It is a little bit of a pain to find park your bike in a stable position with the trailer attached

StarStarStarStarStar BOB Yak

by
Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Very well made and engineered
Excellent ride handling
Very convenient to attach/detach
Tough chro-moly frame
Fairly lightweight (about 13 lbs empty)
Wheel fender and reflector
Water bottle cage screws on either side
Dry sack is large and well made

Cons

Expensive

When loaded, makes parking and positioning difficult as trailer will jackknife easily (not really a design flaw, so much as a characteristic of these one wheel trailers)

Other Thoughts

I had one of these stolen, and missed it so much that I shelled out the cash for another one. There are copycats out there for a fraction of the cost, but they seem to lack the quality and refinement of those by BOB. I take this trailer almost everywhere. It is very strong, and I have heard of people loading over 100 pounds into one although I'm not sure why you would. Even though it says top speed of 25mph I have hauled one over 40 mph and there was no problem whatever. Just make sure you have good brakes.

Be aware that it is possible to induce unstable oscillations, especially for rear heavy loads, but you really have to get it whipping to do it.

As far as seller, Modern Bike was super prompt. It shipped the same day that I ordered it, and it was literally at my door in a couple of days.
