    Very interested in it....

    I really wish I had one when I did the CandO trail a few years ago...

    Also wish I had done it on a fat bike with semi slicks vs the 1.9 tires I used, the rough gravel vibrated my hands bad and the mud in the northern sections was tough.

    Whoa. That turned our pretty cool. We're pleased to be a small (important) part of that build.

    Quite easy to adapt a standard BOB Yak trailer

    Do need more skewer options for all hub sizes and types now,

    Looks like a good effort, however my 24" Rob trailer is the bomb. The big wheel makes a huge difference rolling over roots and rocks. I hauled over 60 gallons of diesel fuel with it last summer, 3 gallons at a time.

    Props to the Robert Axle Project for their thru-axle development, too.

    New Bob Trailer For Fatbikes

    I use a BOB IBEX with my Fatboy. Robert Axle Project Axle. Followed video on Robert Axle Project website on best way to bend BOB Trailer fork for use on fat bike. Use BOB mostly for hauling equip for trail maintenance. I like that "ROB" trailer too! Sweet rig.

    My recent experimentation in building a fatbike trailer. One is a modified Bob, and one is heavily modified trailer bike.

    I don't understand. Your old Pug should be a standard 135 mm skewer. You just need the 29er sized yoke for the BoB trailer (if you have an early BoB), which were $60 from Bikehubshop

    Oh man. That would be great. I'll have to take a look when I get a chance. I forgot about the spacing on the old Pug. I thought it was 170mm!

    Thanks for the info!
