Remorque Topeak Journey Trailer
Light and rigid
Poster le 2022-01-23 par Angel Bromsgrove
There are basically three single-wheeled trailers on the market from decent brands. and whilst there are similarities. it's Topeak's differences that set it apart.
1. The aluminium frame makes the Topeak Journey lighter than its competition - I was surprised just how light it felt when I took it out of the delivery box - and I can honestly say I didn't notice it at all whilst riding around with it empty. I think I'll need lower gearing when towing it fully-loaded. although having tower my daughter up to 5yo. I guess it'll only be comparable to that experience which was totally achievable.
2. The coupling to the bike is rigid. so the trailer doesn't slop from side to side. I've seen videos of some other (cheaper makes) that wobble. This doesn't at all.
3. The quick release is easy to operate and totally secure when connected to the bike. I wish there was a way to lock it to the bike though.
4. The bag is totally waterproof. and quite voluminous.
5. There is an optional rear light which I think ought to be included (for the price of the trailer).
6. There are plastic runners under the front frames so you don't scratch the powdercoating when you rest it on the ground.
This is the fifth bike trailer I've towed (two different child carriers. a TagAlong half-bike. and a doggy trailer) and this is by far the easiest to pull.
Delivered very quickly and although it arrived undamaged. the box was a little beaten up and had a couple of puncture holes in the side.
