Although the Y has been around for a few years now and has sold throughout the world, we have always been very conscious of the tests and the certifications in the bike industry. For a long time load trailers were tested as passenger trailers. Now there is special EN Test for luggage carrying trailers for bicycles. The renowned German testing agency velotech.de was picked to do the testing.

If you have come here because your wheels are stuck in the trailer. we will help you solve this problem. Our first piece of advice is – Don’t let it happen in the first place. Axles get stuck because they have rusted. It usually happens to trailers on long tours, or trailers stored with the wheels on over winter. Always store the trailer with axles removed, remove wheels overnight when touring, and keep the axles lubricated with oil.
But now the good news – We’ve never come across an axle that can’t be removed.
