Share your stoke for cycling with your kids. Simplify your life by allowing quick and secure attachment of your trailer to your best and favorite bike. Enjoy the adventure.
Robert Axle for Hitch-Mount Trailers replaces your stock axle to attach your child trailer to your 12mm thru-axle equipped bike.
This axle is compatible with Burley, Carry Freedom, Chariot/Thule, Croozer, Instep, and many more.
The true length of the axle shaft is 167mm, but can be shorted using the included spacers – a flat spacer and a tapered X-12 spacer. This allows for axle lengths of 152 mm or 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 142mm long axle.
This axle has a 1.0 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 end is stainless steel, which allow for mounting of the hitch provided with your trailer. The threads are M10x1 (metric).
Hardware for attachment of the hitch is included; the hitch is not.
No special tools required. Design allows for installation or wheel removal using your standard 5mm hex wrench.
Designed, built and quality tested in the USA. Proven around the world.
