We rode the TransAm in 2002 on a tandem with panniers and a Bob. The trailer worked well. But the load on the rear wheel of the tandem contributed to a rim failure, among other problems. So we're thinking about switching to a Burley Nomad for our next big tour. The Nomad's two wheels carry 90% of the weight of the trailer, decreased the stress on the tandem's rear wheel.
Anyone have experience touring with a Nomad? Any problems with the right Nomad wheel dropping off the pavement?
