  • Folks, I have a several year old Trek 4300 as the base for my X. Over the last year or so, I've popped at least 3 spokes on the rear wheel. My LBS owner (who sold me the Trek and assembled the X) tells me it's because the stock spokes are inferior and he recommends I get a new rear wheel with stronger rim and spokes. As I'm fairly ignorant about buying wheels, I could use...

  • Alec, this looks like a great solution. Here's "the rub" in my opinion: the clamp you use does not allow for rotation of the fork in the clamp. The clamp was designed for bikes to remain stationery on a rack, not for bikes to be towed and for the clamp to experience all sorts of torsion. One solution (and I may be way out on a limb here) could be to wrap the Xtracycle horizontal...

Quite a few of my friends are interested after seeing how handy my Big Dummy has been over the past year.

  • I've not looked inside them, but I've never had a problem with my Dinotte lights. Granted, I've not submerged them, but they've been through downpours, snow, and ice and never suffered.
