    The wheel can't be attached simply to the outside because the weight won't be equally shared on both sides of the axis (sorry, can't explain it better). Maybe a better solution would be to get two...

    Thanks, but I really don't like rear-racks.

    Incidently, I just thought about using a small folding hand truck, possibly replacing the original wheels with inflated wheels for a faster and smoother...

    Yes, I was thinking of replacing them with inflated tires for a smoother and faster ride, although there isn't much clearance to fit bigger wheels.

    Or maybe I could drill holes on the side and...

    Would they be OK for 100km/day trips?

    Belt drive: Why no strap?

    Hello

    I was wondering: Why do belt drives ŕ la Gates have to be continuous and require cutting the seat stay?

    Can't we make wider belts with a strap that can withstand even the...

    But €500 is way too expensive just to carry a bag while travelling.

    Hard to believe those can't be made for circa €100. Two wheels and a light structure.

    Folding trailers?

    Hello

    I'd like to get a folding trailer to use with a Brompton while travelling.

    Are there other brands I should know about?

    I think I'll just move the controls inwards, saw the ends a bit so the handlebar is more narrow, and add some Ergon ends for a bit more confort for day-long rides.

    Alternatively, what about...

    Thanks much for the feedback.

    On second thought, the trekking bar is probably too wide for use in the city, so I'll slide the controls inward to check how far they go, try riding that way, saw the...

    Hello

    Title says it all: I'm curious about what it takes to open a café vélo/bike café.

    It could be just a non-profit, ie. make just enough money to cover salaries + rent.

    Is there a...
  17. Narrower, touring-friendly, alternative handlebar?

    Hello

    My new bike has a flat handlebar that I find 1) too wide especially when riding in the city, 2) too far for extended rides on week-ends (neck hurts after a while), and 3) the handles hurt...

    Yup, the Carradice Bagman was part of my list in case I couldn't find anything else, but I'd rather keep the weight as low to the ground as possible.

    Indeed, it could be that the distance between the two sit bones changes depending on the position, which would also explain why the saddle width is different for racing...
  24. [Brompton] Solution to hold a bag upright against seatpost?

    Hello

    I don't have a rear-rack on my Brompton and simply need to haul a 24-liter Ortlieb drybag.

    To keep the weight closer to the bike, I'd like to avoid using a seatpost rack such as Topeak's...

    Bikester is actually a German company, and bikes ship with free delivery.

    €1K/$1,3K looks like a good price for that kind of hardware.
