Did not say any negative comments regarding a trike, just said, don't put them on a trike. You obviously missed the entire point of this thread.
Electra Townie with 3 speed internal hub. FUN FUN FUN. Don't put them on a trike.
Unfortunatly society is experiencing a decay in moral behavior, brush it off and move on, chances are worse things will happen over your lifetime.
What accessories you put on your bike is purely personal. Over time you will find what works best for you. I vary what I bring with me based on the duration and remoteness of the ride. Sometimes I...
I looked at several helmets and after trying them on settled with a Specialized brand at 40.00. Specialized like Bell qualify for the higher DOT safety standard. The Specialized is very light,...
A steady diet of lobster eventually leaves one craving for a bologna sandwich.

Shimano M424, me got, me likes.
Go with the spiked tired bike. No sense ending up in the emergency room.
Thanks everybody, I am looking at all the suggestions, one thing I failed to mention is that my bike has an 8 speed alfine internal hub which rules out the racks with a skewer....I think.
I have a Surly Karate Monkey with disc. brakes. Wanting to add a rear rack. Anyone have any brand/model suggestions. It seems the disc brakes limit the available offerings.
Bike fell over.
Take it from me, 380 lbs. Most all bikes can handle the weight. I prefer steel frame for the comfortable ride mostly but as an added benefit the strength. The most important component is the wheels,...
Don't feel guilty, you are investing in your health.
Thanks for the info.
