Am always trailering on vacation(camper) with bike rack on trailer and cooler on tongue. Hate 'Jeeping' the Wing! Am in BC, Yukon, AK, Newfoundland and right here in Colorado and often just to get to camp it happens. Deep closely spaced potholes with water, big rocks at slow speed, and navigating some campsites are the pits. Love this crap and even double black diamond descents on the carbon fiber mt. bike but the 2002 and 2012 wings have not been fun 9in this stuff. Having done this too many times, and don't want the stress on road trips, I get off and scout the best course thru junk carefully...sometimes bailing and don't go into junk before scouting. Its a pain sometimes to have to remove trailer and get everything turned around if unpassable. When in doubt, bail out! Am always on the prowl for new mt. bike venues on vacation and thrills in the hills so don't need the added adventure of 'Jeeping the wing. The vibration on even well graded and fairly compacted surface can ruin the groceries and lots of things in the trailer.
