Trailer is 7' wide.

Leaving bright and early Saturday am. Probably not enough time - might be plywood for now. I love this concept though, simple.

Just rip a 4x8 1/2 down to 6.5 wide. (it will be easy to slide in with 3" clearance on each side.) wouldn't really hurt to make it 6 wide. Lowes or HD will rip it for you.

I'd get treated, a little more $, but if it sits outside in the rain from time to time it will last longer.

It will be OK if the rear of the bikes are not on the plywood, it is all about the width.

You can get by with three or four eyebolts, but I would use the flush mount rings. You can find them most places and you will not trip over them the way you will the eyebolts.

The bicycle guys were on my road on Sunday only. I guess I got the casual bunch. I do have a problem with them and the way they act, but if I get started here it will turn into a huge rant.

I guess the ADV dinner for tonight is Shades in Canal Winchester.

I think the cowbell thing originated with the Suisse or Austrians for downhill skiing. It is easier for the "clangger" & less distracting to the racer than yelling & you can do it with gloves on....clapping does not work.

Cowbells, I do not think were part of bicycle racing until downhill mountainbikes became popular and they were adopted by the "new downhill" crowd.

It did not take long for that to transfer over to regular bicycle racing.

Of course that is a guess that I just pulled out of my butt.

In light of recent events, I'd say baby oil.

Yeah, because corn oil is going to cost way to much, but babies are everywhere so no price increase on baby oil right? I here Matt is stocking up!

Congrats on the new addition.
