    Summer Shoes

    I put on some lightweight summer shoes on my snow bike. It makes quite a difference.

    Your bike tires make me sad, your Bob tire makes me happy. I just bought a skinny tire Bob. What have you got going on there?

    It's a 16 inch rim from a child's cruiser bicycle that I spotted for sale on ebay. I laced it to an appropriate hub and found a relatively fat tire that fit. All I had to do to make it fit the trailer was remove the fender. I'll try to post some close up pictures of it in the next few days.

    FYI, Burley makes a 16 inch wheel kit for its trailers that could easily converted to fat use with a bob trailer by re-lacing one of the burley wheels to a 100mm quick release hub.
