Title: BOB trailer and Cannondale
Post by: erniegrillo on April 28, 2008, 07:22:36 pm
I have a 2004 Cannondale T800 with the factory standard rack that comes with this model. When I attached my BOB trailer this past weekend to go on a tour, the bottom rear rack attachments interfere with the attachement of the BOB. The bottom of the rack rubs and hits the BOB frame (just an inch or 2 behind the skewer). Before I try bending and fabricating, has anyone else had this problem and found a solution?  Thanks

Do you need both the BOB and the rack?  If not, just remove the rack.

I had a similar issue with my 2001 t2000.  It was using a Jandd rack.  It was a little longer then most racks.  The same area of the rack, you described, was hitting the small eyelet on the BoB, for holding the securing pin. I had a different rack so I replace it and that took care of my problem. It is nice to have the rack so you can put a trunk on for the small things you need during your ride. Unfortunately you might have to do some surgery on the rack.  Anyway good luck.
