hey, we are on a tour now, Africa, Asia and Europe. Until now we didn't need front panniers or trailer because for 2 years it was summer for us, but now we are in Europe, cold winter, and we needed to find how to carry the extra-bagagge.
We are touring with mountain bikes, with front suspension, and it was difficoult and expensive to find a "panniers-carrier" for suspension bikes.
We have tried BOB, but is heavy and impossible to put on a transport or airoplanes...
Finally we founded what for us is the ideal solution:
EXTRAWHEEL, as the word says, is a 3rth weel, same diameter as the other 2, only 2kg heavy, and really very independent on movements. Ah, and for the airoplaines, it fits perfect on the bike box!

If you need more info you can see how it works on our website

we really recfomende it!
