Default Re: Long trip planned-- advice welcome!

And as far as being broke down in the middle of nowhere, worse case scenario you can peddle.

Now I am not sure I would take my 20 inch rear wheel model on a 1000 mile road trip, but hey just thought I would throw the idea out there, not to mention if you start looking into DIY weed whacker/chainsaw friction drive stuff on a 20 inch it can eliminate the need for a gear box. Again I never said it was good advice, but the thread asked for advice, didn't specify if it had to be good.
Ferball,im sorry if I came off a little hard on you(no insult intended)....
IF I CANT FIX IT,IT ISN'T BROKEN!....ummmmmmm so I thought....
