    I'm finding that Deore rear derailleurs wear out their bushings and get sloppy a lot faster than they used to.

    I bungee them to the top of the plastic tote that usually rides in my BOB. It's the perfect width. I'll have to figure out another method when we get our Big Dummy soon.

    Single trailers are much more maneuverable than double-wheel trailers. However once you load it past about half of the rider's weight it can start getting hard to control. Don't let that make you...

    We've given it a lot of thought and prefer the Long John style so we can see the kid, and also for a smoother ride. We'll have it setup so a safety seat can be properly mounted.

    I recently had a custom red LED p60 module made up. It's too bright in blinkie mode unless it's pointed at the ground. I think I'll check out the Radbot 500 for use as my main blinkie.
