Perhaps, like many, you're looking for a way to adapt your two-wheeled kid trailer from Burley, Chariot or the others to your new mountain bike that has a thru axle ?

We are offering just such a solution and have dozens of satisfied customers on their new mountain bikes with 12mm thru axle mounted to their hitch-mounted trailers.

We put some videos up on our website that show how easy it is to mount your trailer to your Robert Axle.

For the Hitch-Mount scroll to the bottom, the last video shows the basic install.

I need to give props to Chris and the guys at the Robert Axle Project for superior customer service. I ordered a thru-axle for my custom Rob trailer and inadvertently ordered an axle for a hitch mount trailer. No problem, Chris says, and sent a new axle and return shipping label instantly.

I received the new axle and a month or so went by before I had a chance to try it out. Although my hubs are 170 mm width (fat bike), the axle is 217 mm long to go through the extra thickness of a split pivot design so the Robert Axle was not long enough. I emailed Chris again and he had shipped a new axle and return shipping label within minutes. Besides this great service, the quality and finish of these axles is superb.

Highly recommend the Robert Axle for folks with thru-axles needing to pull trailers.
