Gear Talk / Rear Bike Rack - curved up or flat
« on: May 02, 2023, 05:50:47 pm »
I appologize if this was discussed already... I couldn't find an answer.

I have noticed  some racks curve up at the front and or back, and others are flat.  My current bike rack curves up at the back which has been useful for weekly shopping.  What about for touring though?  Preferences?  Reasoning?

I just ordered a new Burley Nomad for $265 including tax. says it's discontinued, but I don't see anything on the Burley website about it.  Anyway, if anybody is in the market for a trailer now might be a good time!

I have been researching trailers and trying to understand why one-wheel trailers suffer a lot more from wobble and sway.  Excellent video, a must watch if you really want to understand.

Gear Talk / Two-wheeled trailer and rumble strips?
« on: November 24, 2022, 08:53:02 pm »
I am planning a cross country tandem bike tour and am leaning towards using a Two-wheeled trailer mainly becauseof the stability, and the fact that I have read several places that divers tend to give you a little extra space when passing. (I will never complain about that)  My only concern though is on highways with smaller shoulders and rumble strips.  Is this going to turn into a nightmare where the left wheel of the trailer is on a rumble strip for hours, OR I have to ride the entire time actually in the lane and not on the shoulder.

Anybody have thoughts or experience with this?
