#1
Has anyone here use this trailer Burley Nomad. I am thinking about getting one so I can bring back stuff from my trip I have a bad habit of buying stuff while I am on a Vac trip lol. Here is a pic of what it looks like.
My dad always told me a Sledge a matic can fix any thing.

I have not tried a trailer yet but seriously considering making a small one. Let us know how it works out. I pushed my lab and well I should have had a trailer or something for her. She's ok, just tired and has a sore leg guess thats what a 20mile (15 road and 5 trail) trip will do. Me well I am feeling it a little bit.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

I use this one daily to pull my kid around and it seems to work very well but is hard on skewers!

Man Surly, you better put an engine in that bike if you plan to go 2000 miles one way hauling all that. Who knows maybe you are superman. :-O Suggest taking some challenging rides locally to see how that feels with a full load.

You'd be better off shipping stuff back and reducing your load for the trip back.

I have seen these on the bike trail with babies in the back. If you get one than I would put all the stuff you now have on the bike into the trailer.

AND as StuZ says be safe and change to a solid axle bolt on in rear.
Never Give Up!!!
