so you think i'd really be fine with the 20 spoke wheel and everything if i ran a trailer? most of the load would be off the bike right?
Find a used trail-a-bike and convert it for touring. They attach to the seat post so what little weight is placed on the seat post is distributed across the bike. You can find them on ebay or at yard sales and thrift stores. Here is what your looking for.


I found an old Hitchhiker for $1 at a yard sale and converted it for a friend. He wanted to try touring to see if it was something he wanted to do before spending lots of money. Here is a photo of his bike and trailer.


He used it for several months and then purchased a dedicated touring bike.
