A thru-axle adapter for BOB Trailers! These Robert Axles for BOB Trailers are specifically engineered to attach your BOB Trailer to your 12 mm thru-axle equipped bike.

  • This axle is compatible with BOB Trailers.
  • The true length of the axle shaft is 167 mm. Please note: Thru-axle lengths do not equal hub standards. An axle has to be longer than the hub to fit in the frame. A 12×142 hub does not equal a 142 mm long axle.
  • This axle has a 1.75 mm thread pitch.
  • The axle shaft and axle end are precision CNC machined.
  • The axle shaft is 7075 aluminum and hard black anodized for rugged durability.
  • The axle ends are stainless steel, which allow for mounting of the BOB Trailer bobbins.
  • No special tools required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5mm hex wrench.
  • Please note: This axle does not come with the BOB Trailer bobbins. Those are available separately, here. Or you can reuse your bobbins from the stock BOB Trailer Quick Release that came with your trailer.
  • Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.

    Got the 167mm axle with 1.75mm thread to replace the thru-axle on a Trek FX S6, and so accommodate my BoB trailer. Works like a charm — like the R.A. Project made it ‘specially for me.

    High quality piece with excellent customer service. Would recommend The Robert Axle Project to anyone looking set their bike up to trailer for the long haul.

    Got this 167mm axle for a Norco Treshold ‘A Single Speed’ .
    Communication was very fast, shipping to Belgium too.
    It works fine with my BOB Yak. The adjustment of the yolk was only minor in my case, only 10mm or so.
    With the original axle I head creaking issues, with the Robert axle not anymore. Tolerances are tight, high quality machining and finishing.

    One note: The outer diameter of the stainless axle end is 20mm, and it barely fitted inside the drive-side dropout. I had to scratch some paint away. Also, I had to insert a 12mm/17mm-ish washer because the radius of the filleting was higher on the inside of the dropout. This was also necessary because the dropout is so wide, half the unscrewing hole in the stainless axle end dissapears inside the dropout. With the washer I can insert an unscrewing tool.

  • These BOB trailer bobbins are made by the Robert Axle Project to make our axles compatible with the BOB Trailer.

    Keep in mind it is always a good idea, on any significant tour, to carry a spare Bobbin and Trailer Pin, just in case.

  • After years of mountain biking with thru-axles with bulky handles that seemed to strike every trailside obstacle we needed a better option.

  • The BOB Gear pin with rubber lanyard secures the BOB Trailer to the axle. All BOB Trailers come with a set, but it is handy to have an extra in case you lose one. Sold individually.

  • This inner tube for your BOB Trailer has a Presta valve, just like the valves on your bike. This means you are not sitting on the side of the trail fumbling to convert your pump to a Schrader valve. Changing flats suck. Make it easier on yourself with this tube.
