Yea, I made out pretty well considering this trailer is around $400 new. But I did just drop a pretty penny on connecting it to my bike today. The solid axle that GEBE has on its wheel needs special nuts that are 10mm x 1.0mm to hook the trailer up to. They were $27.00 for 2 nuts. then it needs retaining pins. They were $15.00 And off course I had to splurge for a double legged kickstand. I got the best, a Pletscher @ $50.00.
