yetisurly said:I have put lots of miles on the B.O.B. on several types of frames (tandem aluminum, lightweight road steel, crossbike steel, and mountain steel as well as aluminum) and have had no negative effect. And, on the other hand, I can say the same thing about the burley that the kid rides in as well.
Because they track so well, don't mess with the handling too much, and are proven, i think. However, i have to disagree a little with the bob not hurting the frame thing - i used a quality steel hardtail for a 3 month tour on a lot of "unimproved" roads through alaska and canada, and i found myself realigning the dropouts a couple times during the trip. It wasn't anything really bad, but the trailer was doing something. Admittedly, the WTB Phoenix had crap ritchey dropouts that seemed to have been made of butter.Krafcik said:Thanks. . . . so they are both quality . . . why does everyone prefer the BOB?
