Are there any particular problems/issues one should be aware of when purchasing a second-hand YAK
BOB trailer (e.g. dodgy old versions etc)?

Thanks,

Mads

I was looking at them and saw some references to the new improved hitch part (at some point) and
some complaints about the old one. Sorry I can't be more specific. I'd do a 'google' search, see
what comes up.
 
There is supposed to be issues with the wheels, the hitch system and some other minor things.

Thanks for the tips. I've now bought a second-hand Yak Bob. It's got the old pin system, but I'm not
too concerned as I won't be loading it to its max. It has all the parts (inc the bag) and a new XTR
hub for the wheel (!). I paid 1000Dkr (=$140), so I'm quite happy with it so far. I'll let you all
know how I get on when I cycle to the UK with it soon.

I got hold of a second hand one (it came with the black bag) and have no problems just make sure you
load it right. "Derek Swift" <[email protected]> wrote in message
