  5. Angled seatpost shim for adjusting hitch for Burley Travoy?

    My girlfriend's bike must have a slacker seat tube angle than Burley designed for because it's hard to get the trailer off the pin unless the bike's front wheel is put over a curb in the street with...

    Thanks all. I hadn't really been thinking flexibly, but now I've got a lot more ideas. Somehow I convinced myself the Breezer Uptown has a threadless headset, but it's threaded so a Periscopa and...
  11. bolt--upright lightweight diamond frameset or complete bike?

    I'm thinking about switching back to uprights from an underseat-steering recumbent and wonder if I can get a lightweight "Dutch" bike. I don't need fenders or a chaincase. I'd like a lighter weight...
