Of trailers and odd links

Today was the maiden voyage of Trailer, v 2.0. I was still having trouble with the wheels not aligning right, no matter how I adjusted them. So, I switched out the wheels for smaller ones with bolt-on axles rather than the quick release, since the QR just wasn't hanging on as much as I wanted.

Now it works great. I just need to remake the inner wheel plates to make the notches a little narrower so the bolt hangs on better. Riding with the thing is great. Once I get going, I hardly notice it's there. Even with 50 pounds of groceries and such on the back.

There's an interesting link that I ran across while surfing my blogroll today. Take a look and see if you pass the test.
