Bigger than I thought!
on 21 May 2013
KMS sent this bike trailer in just two days. Brilliant service from them. This is much bigger than other trailers such as the Avenir available from Argoos. Very well made and defifnately made of steel rather then alloy Easy to assemble apart from the top cover that seems too small for the trailer. Very hard to get the bugger to stay on. One the other hand, it says in the instructions that this cannot be fitted with bikes with QR wheels. Sorry but it can!I ride a Clasic Touriste 700C bike - a cheap one also from Amazon. The rear wheel bearings failed in two weeks so I went to Halfords for a replacement. They only had a 700C with quick release, but if you have a pair of Mole grips, this can easily be tightened enought to support the trailer pivot. Advice is to grease the mounting so that it moves freely. Also there were some issues with mounting the wheels on their axles. The instructions say to place a spring washer, a fixed washer and then a circlip to mount the wheels. On mine, there was not enough room to do this. Other reviews have suggested that the machining of the axles is not perfect. I would agree. However, with the parts provided, there is a compromise to fit the wheels so that al works. Use your own judgement on this one! Basically this is a LARGE trailer that is well made from dteel and easy to assemble. It rides well and I can completely see why it is rated at 70 kilos capacity! Just make sure that your legs will power it and that your bike brakes will stop it! ( Mine are standard V brakes and they are fine )
Top product for those of us who do no require the car. PS, Just done an entire weeks shop from a local supermarket (5 miles there and back and up and down hills in the most appalling weather and the trailer was fine - but not my legs - I am 57 you know and not Bradley Wiggins!!!)
