This looks like a great trailer. Only one tire means it will fit on singletrack!!! Price looks good, too. Has anyone tried one?

I have a bunch of miles of towing experience with a much wider two-wheeled, Original Cannondale Trailer, but it is too wide to fit on a single track. Paved roadways are OK, but I have been heavy into lust for a one-wheeled bike trailer ever since I first laid eyes on a "BOB" trailer, but was put off by the high price tag.

The 70-dollar trailer is near perfect, as is, but just like 99% of the Chinese-made bike things, it can be up-graded. If you study the reviews on Amazon, you can see what others have done to their trailers, and get some good ideas.

This trailer can (and does) eliminate the real need for any pannier-style bags and racks, and thus simplifies a run to the store, and it has an 88-pound GWR, which is the load rating of the cheap tire that they chose to use (IMHO). You could buy a much heavier duty tire and put it right on there. And, this trailer puts no tongue weight on your bike.
