Thanks man!

Currently in North Wales, though the blog is still in the middle of Scotland. I'm a writer for a living, so blogging unfortunately has to play second fiddle to my paying work.

So far the BOB knockoff trailer has been working great. The improvised rear skewer you came up with has been trouble free. I chucked the bag that came with it and went with a 65l waterproof Gelert Expedition http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gelert-Expedition-Cargo-Bag-Black/dp/B002BO0XV4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1404423006&sr=8-1&keywords=gelert+expedition+65l+cargo+bag and a set of RCP rear waterproof panniers http://www.amazon.co.uk/RCP-WP100-carrier-bags-Colour/dp/B002RLFCEY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1404423148&sr=8-3&keywords=red+waterproof+panniers. More than enough space for everything I want. The trailer bag is a little too long to fit in the trailer, but I keep my sleeping bag and roll mat underneath it at the back of the trailer so the bag sits at a slight forward sloping angle, lending the rig a wolfish, aerodynamic appearance belying the goofball riding it.

I'll post a pic when I get one online.

Cheers

Stef
