    I'll be darned! The markings are wrong on the tire! I measured it. It's a hair under 32mm. So it's not 1.125 inches wide, it's 1.25.

    Looking for an odd sized tube

    I went to my LBS in search of tubes for a 32-507 tire. This is a Kenda SB8 also marked 24 x 1.125. The guys couldn't figure it out. The closest I can find on the Schwalbe site is the SV 9. It...

    You might want to try a swept back bar. It might not be a straight up swap because of the cabling though.

    You can put a car seat in it. Been done before. But I wouldn't worry about it. The two naps a day go away fast, the one nap a day ends sooner than you'd like as well.

    Ah that's because the handlebars are up higher. More weight on your tush, less weight on your hands. I've also found that Ergonomic grips, like those made by Ergon, make a world of difference.
