    I own a bob trailer, a steel hardtail, and two trek ABP bikes. A bob trailer makes my steel hardtail twist and flex like there is no tomorrow. (I'm 160lbs, usually 30-40lbs in the bob trailer).

    I appreciate the innovation, but a word of caution to potential buyers.

    Consider the load on your rear triangle. If you're leaning your bike over to corner while riding, that bob trailer is putting massive twisting loads on your rear swingarm. I would believe a broken swingarm is almost inevitable.
