  • The 125mm to 140mm size will fit all standard road and mountain bike sizes.
  • The 145mm size fits the majority of tandem bicycles.
  • The 160mm size fits the Santana tandem bicycles. This 160mm BOB QR is designed to work with the Santana Fork.

(Please Note: Quick release sizes do not indicate the length of the skewer, rather they indicate the width of the bicycle’s rear hub that the quick release is being mounted to. This is a measurement of the outside edge to outside edge of the hubs outer nuts that interface with the bicycle frame’s dropouts.)


All BOB Quick Releases have reversible bushings for achieving a better fit with the BOB Trailer Fork.

Bob trailers can be attached to bicycles with wheel sizes between 20″ and 28″

Bob Skewers

I found that ordering, receiving in the mail was expeditious. The only downfall was the end cost. Being a Canadian and paying the ultimate cost for items one needs. I still would consider looking at your online store for items that may be of interest. Thank you.

BOB Trailer Quick Release

Works well and exactly as described. The BOB trailer system is build around a few key components, and this may quite possibly be the most important of all of them. This thing just works and works well. It's and easy swap for any bike wheel already equipped with a skewer, taking less than a minute.

I bought this to go on my second bike, though when I do some touring I'll probably pop it out temporarily and take it along with me as a spare in case the one on my touring bike cracks or breaks.

Make sure when you buy one of these that you're buying the correct one for your dropout spacing.
