I have an old trek 7300 (before suspension) that is slowly getting geared into a comfort tank (rack lights panniers etc.) I do rec riding wth my happy (most of the time) new hip but I'd love to do more utility biking.
So I'm thinking of getting a trailer for grocery shopping (we eat a lot and with my CP I am not the most balanced so 50-70 ponds on the bike = bad plan) plus to get on and off the bike I lay it down. I realize this is a sin to some but it works for me and it's better than not riding right!?!. I don't have the money for a bent so thanks but let's not go there. Im mostly fine once on the bike but...
1) is there a trailer that I could get for hauling groceries that wouldn't require the bike to stay upright ?
maybe I should post this in the builders forum?
2) how do you secure the trailer from thieves while shopping
3) I have a cheap lock now for my bike and want recommendations on a "good cost effective lock",
How long should it be and ow should I use it (through frame around each rim once?) Please advise and forgive me for my ignorance.
I did pick up yesterdays Jewel chicken deal on the bike and it fit perfect in my rack bag and didn't have adverse effects from being "tipped over" for my mounting procedure. It is a start. Nice to burn some dinner calories before you eat them
