Kinda related to this;I am really sorry to hear about the fire at that Specialized dealership.
(I wonder what the folks at Homeland Security will do with that post?)
FWIW, my dynamo powered light mounts at the front of my front rack. I like it there much better than I liked the dual battery powered lights which attached mid way up the arms of my fork. Brightness was roughly comparable, but the lower mounting position made for oddly distracting shadows. I'm curious how the fender mounted light works out.I believe i would like the light mounted lower.
Have you ridden at night with it there yet?
What was it like?
Thank you! I look forward to finding out how it pulls. Overall, I think my Burley Coho XC has a better design, but it is also much newer and a bit more than $100 more pricey (MSRP for a new example of each). Both attach to the rear axle via a special QR skewer. Both have available dry bags. The Coho has a cool multi position yoke which allows it to attach to a range of axle widths and tire sizes while the BOB trailer requires a whole different yoke to attach to 26" vs. 700c wheels.Another interesting accessory I keep talking myself into and out of buying .... it sure looks good.
Sorry 'bout the research. Funny how more info often just raises more questions .Great ..... but I am not grateful. Now I have to de even more research.

I was wondering how I would use the bob now that my new touring bike had thru axles. I might just be old enough now to do credit card touring and won’t need the trailer. I still have the 520 so I can ride it if I want to do a lot of camping. Trying to get myself healthy enough to ride.Sorry 'bout the research. Funny how more info often just raises more questions .
On the 'more info' note, it's worth mentioning that my BOB trailer is the 'Yak' model, which is a hard tail. They also offer the 'Ibex' which includes a shock. The Burley Coho is only available with suspension. Both trailers' shocks are adjustable. The Coho bounces around a bit when run empty, but smooths out with Chip's 21lbs inside. If you have any questions or would like more photos of either trailer, feel free to reach out. I have towed the Coho, mostly with Chip as the cargo, for something like 2,500mi. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. I like the looks and construction of the Yak a lot, but have never pulled it (yet). and thus can't comment.
