Anyone Use a Trailer? bobyak look alike experiences and mods
=======================================================

add to under "touring"


Thedaveb's "Singlewheel trailers - experiences and modifications" thread on the yakalike ( cheapo bobyak look alike one wheel trailer) mods and experiences. it is too important to lose as it has many practical experiences and mods to make them reliable

here is the thread I think that should be added as a 3rd item in trailers

maybe add the thread on quality pedals here as nothing on standard pedals and the ones recommended, MKS , not in my sight at all ( though I had a pair from long ago in my junk box)

viewtopic.php?p=542120#p542120 contains the mechanical advantages for brake levers and arms - worth adding to the Too Good To Lose?

I would also like to nominate:
Left crank coming loose
Penrite SF Grease for Alfine 8? (IMO applicable to many other hubs except the Sturmey-Archer 3s)

All three of the above now included in "Too good to lose . . . " .

The dilemma as always is that there is so much good stuff and I don't want to overwhelm that section.

What's that?

Aye, but I thought the latest two worthwhile because loose left cranks and hub gear lubrication seem to arise fairly often.
