    This is a fairly common problem with narrow rims and wide tires. 50 mm tires will work much better with a wider rim, 25c or larger. I would go with one of the 29er MTB rims.

    I have a Burley Piccolo, and it would be my choice in your situation. I would not confuse it with other brands. I used to own a Trail-a-Bike, and I would not want to use one again.

    I have looked at electric assist, and as far as I can tell, Bionx is way ahead of everyone else. I have only ridden a couple, but the BionX ones were like having stronger legs, while the others that...

    The Linus Mixte is one of my favourite riding bikes, but the Boda Boda can carry a lot more stuff and is probably more versatile.

    There are canti posts on the rear triangle, you could mount an OMM rack on the back.

    I also use aluminum foil.
    After I get the rust off, I use tremclad rust reformer to keep it from getting rusty the next time.

    I never put helmets on my kids when they were in trailers. No cops ever looked in, and if they had, i would have either talked my way out of it, or paid the fine. You could bring the helmet along...
