My first load



Used my new Burley Nomad for the first time to haul the Nishiki to the LBS to have the frame checked. Towed great! If you're wondering why I didn't use a car it's because I'm car free.

Which LBS? I liked 30th Century about the best.

I'm in Idaho not Iowa. I took the frame to Paradise Creek and they said everything was solid.

great deal iheartbacon, me myself is leaning more and more to "utility cycling" rather than "sport activity cycling", so far the heaviest load on my bicycle was just cement sack, maybe I should get a trailer also similar to yours...

My trailer is good for 100lbs, which is fine because if I have to move more than that I'd rather rent a U-Haul or hire a cab.
