Rode to Lake Quasipaug and on the way back had my first experience climbing with the 16t cog in the rear. It was tough but I didn't have to walk. Of course it would be even easier if I weren't pulling an additional 50 to 60 lbs.
Got all the way down to the other end when I had to stop suddenly to avoid the possibility of crashing into a pole in the middle of the trail to prevent motorized vehicles. It's alway a tight fit pulling the Burley. In doing so, the weight of the trailer pushed my rear axel out of alignment causing me to come to a sudden halt. As it started to rain, I had to take the rear wheel off, loosen the brake slider and remount everything. Fun!
Sorry, no pictures but here is the ride route that I uploaded on a site called MTBGuru. Had to crop it down so that it would fit nicely on the blog.
Maybe we'll see you out there some night.
