Road-side observations: Failure

This guy has seemingly mastered the art of failure.


Don't ask me how it happened, for I do not know. A motorcycle cop showed up just after I snapped this, so I wasn't going to interrupt and ask. It's a good thing, too. The discussion would have likely gone like this:

Me: "Pardon me."
Guy: "Yes?"
Me: "What the f***, dude!?"
Guy: "Just driving along, and my trailer flipped over!"

LOL! I am reminded of the "JRA" syndrome at the bike shop. Some gnarly dude will come in with a tacoed wheel, a ripped off derailleur, or a fork benk back so the front tire rubs the downtube. "Dude, what the F***?"

"Man, I was Just Riding Along and......"

Clearly the trailer manufacturer put the wheels on the inverse side of the trailer.

Move the wheels down so they are on the road side of the trailer, and problem is solved.

Park tools and bicycletutor are both places I often visit. Redishing the rear wheel was my thorn.

I'll be doing all the other stuff though.

That's a well-trained trailer:

"Sit, trailer, sit! Now ... roll over!" :)

p.s. #3 son was just in KC picking up some kind of machine that they use building indoor turf arenas. He was at some big soccer complex in the city.

I'll get his take on KC tonight when he returns. All glaringly positive I'm sure.
