Thanks for your help!
Well, as a matter of fact...yes, we have noticed that. I thought perhaps OUR 26" bikes were non-standard.
And, while we had ours chained so we couldn't fully "lose" them, it bent the upright pole back and came very close to coming loose and dragging the bikes behind the trailer.
We've since simply laid the bikes down and strapped them down flat which works OK, but certainly defeats the purpose of adding on a "bike rack".
I'd be interested to know if Christopher Columbus has any thoughts or comments on this apparent flaw or issue.
In the grand scheme of things, I love everything else about our Columbus so much this isn't a major issue to me. We'll certainly work around it.
