dropped my xtracycle off at the shop for a rigid fork and disc brakes today
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1336396599Getting a Surly 1x1 fork, front disc brakes, and a new front wheel with a dynamo hub put on. The rigid fork and higher bars should help a lot with comfort and the hills. Probably get a Big Apple 26x2.15 for the front too (that is what is on the back).
Towed the red bike so that I could ride it and tow the trailer home. Made a stop at the coffee shop and the park with my daughter on the way home.
Only problem with this setup is I should have let the bottom of the fork dangle so the bars could pivot. Going on and off curbs it tended to lift the trailer wheels off the ground. That's what happens when you test your work on flat ground...
The other problem is that the red bike isn't geared to tow the trailer, and the 300 foot hill climb on the way home sucked pretty hard, but I figure I earned my beers for the day.
not sure why I can't get the photo to add. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...&id=1336396599
laundry/grocery shopping day
I have to do laundry every 10 days. The laundermat is right next door to a supermarket. http://i661.photobucket.com/albums/u...o/IMG_4599.jpg
