Specification

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 180 mm but can be shortened using the included spacer to 174 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 12×148 hub does not equal a 148 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.

    Great company to work with and the axle fix my Salsa hub perfectly. I needed to reform my BOB trailer yoke and their video was very helpful on how to do this. I also purchased their trailer pins and bobbins which were a perfect fit.

    Received my axle in short order. Installed it quickly (with some help) and hooked up my BOB Yak and tried it out, worked great. Look forward to taking it out on the trail. Excellent service!

    this thing saved me! Who knew it would be so complicated to attach my old BOB to my new bike!!?? Of course, I didn’t realized until just before our family bike outing that I needed a fix and it was unavailable in my town (several of the bike shops are now carrying Robert Axle Project pieces, just not the right one.) Thanks to my local Trek store for sending me to the Robert Axle Project, and thanks to the Robert Axle Project for sending it so efficiently. I had to reef on the yoke to make it work, but it DID work. maybe now I’ll look at the video referenced in the other review to see how to do it correctly:) Thanks again for the service, Robert Axle Project!!!

    The axle fit perfectly on my bike, and works just like the old skewer setups. I used the bobbins from my old skewers and they worked perfectly. The ‘how to’ videos on the site were very helpful in getting the axle set up and the yoke on my BOB resized to fit the wider axel on the new bike. The shipment arrived in must a few days so excellent customer response time so far. I’m glad someone is making axels for BOB trailers that work with thru axel systems. So far I think this is a great product, clean simple and good quality.

    I used this axle to attach a Blackburn rack to a Salsa Deadwood. I received quick and thorough follow up on questions about what is supplied and why, mostly because the kit is mostly intended for BOB trailers. Works great. It is actually much better designed and made than the rack itself. The rack is highly adjustable, which I applaud, but the hardware is cheap and the rack itself is pretty flexy. So the news that RAP is taking over (?) OMM racks is I think a very smart move…

    Works great with a Trek Stache!
