9/24/06: Lowered the seat all the way. Much more comfortable but leaving no room for the rear mudguard. Installed the rear rack.
11/06 Installed 355 Marathon 18 x 1.5 rear tire for hopefully improved puncture resistance. VERY tight fit on the rim. The larger tire however rubbed the seat, which required seat and subsequently rear derailleur adjustment .
12/06 Installed Dinotte tail light powered by AA batteries. VERY bright. Installed Arkel T28 panniers. The Mini is getting heavier!
Trice Mini at the Rockstore, Mulholland Hwy:
Changed the seat to a more upright position. As a side effect this decreased the wheelbase length and thereby effective boom length, improving power delivery to the pedals. Reversed the headrest, to allow more neck extension. " Bear spray " on the boom, ready for the quick draw.
Mini on Mulholland Hwy:
Returned the seat to the more reclined position, just more comfortable. Used the Catrike Speed head rest foam for additional cushioning.
