BOB trailer quick release

I'm recuperating from a stroke and bikes are my primary mode of transportation. I thought the BOB Yak would be a classy way to get groceries and bought a used opne at a good price. THEN found out that essential quick releases were on backorder. I ordered one anyway and was notified in days that one had been returned and was in the mail to me. FAR OUT! They are still on back order, BTW. The trailer is outstanding. I overtightened the pivot bolt slightly for "damping" and have no instability problems on a '90-something Sfumpjumper even with heavy loads. I found that I could tip the emty trailer straight up and hook it to the seat to ease maneauvering in reverse. Anyhow, thanks again, Campfire. I'll stop in and say hi when I next visit all my family in Tucson. Steve.

Everyone else left me hanging

So needed an obscure part, Campfire Cycling tenaciously found it when Amazon and the manufacturer couldn't help me. Did it for a very fair price too. Thank you Campfire Cycling!

Not quite there yet

I receive good service, however unfortunately purchased the wrong size axil. I attempted to modify the axle to make it work. However, this made it un returnable and unusable. I clearly need to replace this axle and acquire another axle for another bike. At this point I'm hesitant to purchase two more axles until I can confirm they will fit my bikes To be clear, I have had good service/support.I look forward to getting the correct axils and putting them to use
