Hi Keith, I deleted my original post because I thought you were no longer on here. I just wanted to know if you went for the flat bar or the tubed steel as I'm considering getting one for my bike?

If you want to reinsert the pictures you'll have to open a new comment though, use the 13th 'Host an image' icon to insert them, then that way they won't disappear when photobucket throws a wobbly again.

Just as an aside, I’d assumed when I got my tow bar fabricated that tube would be best, but the guy who made it recommended flat bar. There was a bit of spring in it even so, but I never felt it compromised the handling of the little trailer Tow Bar and Trailer. - Page 4 184121345

Don't know how this is going to turn out....the pictures look so big!

These are pictures of my towbar that are missing from an earlier post.

Current wisdom is that tube is better than plate as it is more rigid and 25mm tube is better than 18mm tube. Having said that I have seen some nice plate towbars fitted to VTX's in the US. They use 5mm plate and run them down the inside of the rear mudguard. I have also seen them fitted to the outside of the mudguard and following the mudguard shape.

I have seen some plate bars on bikes in the UK and they definitely flex a bit but they have used 3mm plate. Although they say the flexing doesn't affect the handling I am a bit sceptical. Mine is absolutely rock solid - no movement at all.
