Default New Wee Farkle - a Bicycle

Just picked up a new farkle the other day. Since I love riding 2 wheelers - it seems only fitting to use one to haul the other!

At least you wont be stranded in the event of a flat tire. Most people just carry a repair kit.

I need to get something rigged up for next year. I plan on doing a lot of riding and some racing and without a car this is a must.

I really would like a trailer that I can mount the bike but the trailer I like is about $800.
