    The spare motor thing is one thing I'm doing, too. Too cheap of insurance to pass up :)

    Look on craigslist for a used kid's bike trailer. I got mine for $25. I'll be making a more suitable carrier portion from 1" x 1" square tubing and Mahogany plywood and parts from the trailer.

    Your bike can pull more than it can carry and being in Texas it should be able to still climb any hills encountered....or are there any hills? ;)

    sounds nice- god luck

    to post a photo-

    click on "go advanced" on post menu-

    then click on the little icon that looks like an exclamation point, next to the smiley face at the top

    that opens "manage attachments" you can browse then the photo files on your own computer and select

    you may have to resize them using some kind of photo program- like maybe one that came with your camera

    To save other peoples thumbnail attachments- once you have opened their photo- click on it again and it opens it in a page of it's own- then go to "page" and "save as"- and that stores it in your own files

    Take a couple of spare tubes. I don't know about you but I've yet to patch one and have it hold air.
