Afternoon all. I was joking with a friend of mine, who suggested that we may have a bit more interest from the ladies if we were at attach a trailer filled with Italian shoes and handbags. While this list knows allot about bicycles and trailers, our collective knowledge of woman's shoes and handbags wouldn't fill the space between the handlebar and the stem clamp. Here's hoping that when we see that lovely lady on a classic bike, we have the speed in our legs to catch her. Tom HarrimanSan Francisco, Ca
