I am planning on doing a tour of part of the North Island in NZ here during the christmas holidays (summer). I have a road bike, and I want to tow a trailer with all my stuff in it because its impractible (sp?) to have panniers etc.
I need some suggestions.
Wheel size/location (single rear middle, or 2 just behind the middle of the trailer) and go for 12" or larger, even 700c?
Width suggestions for trailer
How many Cateye flashing LED lights should I attatch to the back?
Mounting - swivel connection to seat post, I will replace seat post with steel if it is not already so.
Was thinking put a MTB rear deraileur and cassette on the rear, maybe a 32-13?
This would give me a 39x32 low gear. I dont plain carrying a HEAP in the trailer, so I feel this gearing will be OK (currently have 39x25) what grade MTB stuff? i want decent stuff, like 105 is decent road stuff etc. Maybe some SRAM?
There will be mre questions as I think of them.
