Hop the little stuff.
That's what I meant. I didn't know if it'd be enough clearance (while standing up) for the bumps I encounter.

It was fine though.

I just got this Seattlesports Paddleboy boat cart and have used it a couple times now. It works great! Handles up to a 16' boat and up to 75lbs. I used it yesterday to take a w/w kayak the 5mi to work just to show folks another kind of kayak in my 'Intro To Ocean Kayaking' clinic.

More two wheeled fun. Mark H.

Can it handle a 16' Hobie Cat?

You can always stand with the peddles and crank horizontal. You don't have to stand up with the peddle in the lowest position.

Cool! Neat idea. Don't you need a wetsuit for paddling in Alaska during the summer?

Here's my ride.



Ignore the straight line on the left end of the route. I took a small break and forgot to hit "resume" until I was about a quarter mile back along the route.

I'd go so far as to say you SHOULD ALWAYS stand with the crank horizontal... its damn hard to bunny hop any other way, unless you're riding one of those urban assault bikes with the seat about 20" off the ground.



and, mon, those look painful to ride more than a few 100 feet on...

As long as we're talking bunny hopping and trial bikes, we ought to clue up the Danny MacAskill Video. Yes, I know its soo 205... but still good.

vintage Trek update

Bottom bracket was fine once cleaned and flushed, everything smooth spinning.





Still some parts on order but it's getting there.... chopped the bars and flipped. Going to put the orig levers out in front too.



Let's see Brooklyn steal this old saddle....
