(40lbs commuter + 70lbs of kids) = A+ training
I bought a kid trailer a couple of weeks ago and have been using it a lot. I have a 4 1/2 year old and a 18 month old. They total around 70+ lbs. I use my 1990 Specialized Rockhopper to pull them around. I have a lot of hills in my area and I have been climbing them in the granny. Well I went on a road ride today on my road bike. I felt so much stronger. I was faster and I was climbing better. I didn't think I would notice a difference this quick.
Anyone else notice a difference? I must say that I feel the trailer has helped me bust through a lull I was in.
