holding it all together, rolling down the road.... again

i haven't used these yet,these particular ones,but the one's i've purchased in the past work like a charm. i wanted to stock up on a few,and help out campfire cycling with a purchase at this time of year. in the past i've ordered stuff from them while being on a bike tour, they RULE!! i bought my bob trailer in 2001, and have used it all over the country, many tours. in 2017 i finally did the whole trans america trail (and then some), i was 1 of 4 people using a bob trailer, and most people who i rode in multiple states would refer to me as that guy with the trailer....
