    As far as I know, 12v systems are obsolete and no longer widely made. Nearly everything today is for 6v systems. Honestly you would not see a benefit to a 12v system as leds run on around 3v...

    Mostly "Nice stopping in the crosswalk" and "Where's your lights?". Drivers stopping in the crosswalk forcing pedestrians out into the intersection is my big pet peeve!

    My bike already has dynamo lights. Plus I don't wear helmets, making this useless for me.

    I have to agree here. Too many riders think laws don't apply to them. Now perhaps it's a bad law. Perhaps it's one that should be looked at, or perhaps that intersection needs a redesigned to...

    Thanks for the reply. The Burley hitch looks like it might work well. It's a bit late to get one for my next trip, but I'll look into getting one for the one after that.

    I'll have to get the digital calipers out and find out when I get home. Problem is I'm not sure I could trust that hitch. It looks like a bit of plastic, and I want to carry up to 100 kilos. If it's...

    Frame mounted trailer hitch?

    I bought a trailer for my bike and love it, but I just don't trust the hitch. First I ride a dutch style bike, so the hitch has to be mounted on top of the IGH anti-turn washer. Next, When riding the...

    Where I live, nearly all bike thefts happen when bikes are not secured, or secured only with a cable lock. This is why I use 3 locks to secure my bike. I use a u-lock securing the frame to a post,...

    Proud? No. Why would I be? Most days I don't even think about it, I just go about my day. I'm only proud of things I have done that have taken great effort. Going car free took no effort at all as I...
  11. Looking for a trailer that will work with a dutch bike?

    Ok, I have decided it's time to do a little camping and want to get a trailer so I don't have to strap everything to the bike frame itself. Distance is going to be about 10km with two steep hills.

    Fine, but it's an uninformed comment.

    If you think they are selling because they are fashionable, you just don't know dutch bikes and should not comment.

    I encounter this often. Sure the person is being nice, but they don't realize the harm they are doing. Other drivers may not be so nice and may still be a danger. It also confuses some drivers as it...

    Mostly because of shipping and tariffs. My bike cost under $1000, but shipping and tariffs boosted that to around $1600 (I bought a few extras as well). If not for the fees, I could have gotten a...

    So do I, it was an easy go even up a steep hill. Omaha is one of the most hilly cities in the U.S. It's a myth dutch bikes are hard on hills. Unless you have tried a real dutch bike you really can't...

    I'd say slow down. No need to go fast, especially on such a short ride. I've been a bicycle commuter for 8 years and have never seen the need to "warm up".
