    With all due respect, I would not attempt, or advise others to make this with the wheel you are using,

    Bicycle wheels are NOT engineered to rotate at highway speeds!

    Same goes for the tires/tyres.

    Bicycle wheels are notoriously neglected, and are frequently found to have little to no grease in the bearings.

    What size universal (socket) joint? Avoid cheap Chinese u-joints. Use Snap-on, Craftsman, etc.

    Again, bicycle parts are NOT meant for sustained high speed use!

    I appreciate your concerns ,
    Your are correct ,
    this was not my first choice , this is why I made the wheel fork holder separate than the rest of the frame in order to replace the whole Fork/ Wheel assembly when a better/bigger wheel available ,I actually rushed completing the project just for the sake of seeing it in action ,I admit that more adjustments are required..

    Thanks again

    Question 1 year ago on Introduction

    So, have you put a lot of miles on the trailer? Did you wind up putting a different wheel (or any other changes) to it?
