Maiden Voyage

Took the new trailer out on its maiden voyage with the wife today. We pushed it instead of hooking it to the bike. Lots of folks showed interest in the trailer but the best comment was from a group of old women (6-7)that were shopping (all with their little wire drag home carts) and commented on how nifty my cart was! Ha!

I also took my Instep trailer out on its maiden voyage the other day. Got about 50 feet down the road when the stupid trailer hitch twisted into my spokes and I spent the afternoon doing another wheel build. It's back to the drawing board for me... until I can find a better hitch.
