Bob trailer pins +

Postby yak » Sun May 18, 2014 10:53 am

Hi all
I'm trying to buy some BOB yak trailer pins.
Does anyone know where I can buy some preferably in Australia, or a reliable o/s online supplier.
Having not used my Bob for some years I also find it not compatible with my modern mt bikes due to spindle not fitting - what have people done to overcome this?

Bought pins off ebay search bob trailers and I think they come from the states.
Is the spindle not long enough?

Spindle is not thick enough.

Just get two old spokes and bend them into shape. Much cheaper than buying pins.

You have a 142x12 through axle?
