A PASSION FOR ADVENTURE
Call it what you wish—a “ trip of a lifetime”, or a “ bucket list”. It can even be called “weekend plans.” Whatever you name it, it’s the list of fun or challenging things that you want to do in your life. It might be an exploration of the dirt roads that criss-cross your local hills. Or it might be a full summer of bike touring on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.
The Robert Axle Project was born from a deep passion for adventure and we think bike touring is one of the most rewarding ways to experience that “ trip of a lifetime.” Some of our fondest memories come from bike tours—the places we’ve stayed and the people we’ve met along the way.
MICRO ADVENTURES FOR EVERYONE
For some of us, escaping the 9 to 5 grind is perhaps the hardest part. But bike touring doesn’t have to be defined by the length of the trip, where you go, or how far you ride. An overnight trip from your house—the “ 5-to-9 microadventure” trip—can create that same feeling of freedom. Microadventures are accessible to nearly everyone. All you need is some basic gear and the desire to get out of the grind for a while. The Robert Axle Project is happy to be one part of your adventures, big and small.
BIKE TOURING WITH A BOB TRAILER
Whether you are planning your extended bucket list trip, or heading out for a singletrack bike tour with your cycling buddies, The Robert Axle Project is here to help.
Yes, you can attach your BOB Trailer to any bicycle that has a 12mm thru axle. Simply use our Fitment Finder to find the Robert Axle that fits your bike. Remove your stock thru axle that came with your bike, replace it with a Robert Axle, and follow our instructions to attach your BOB Trailer.
