Pedal to the metal

This week I took the wheel from my Walker Matilda in to be replaced.  The clerk, a pleasant fellow, carefully examined the wheel and asked, "Looks like a case of high speed and abnormal wheel vibrations.  Let's see what we can do."

After he and his fellow workers combed their inventory he returned with a heavy duty plastic and rubber wheel that should last forever.  I had to go to Home Depot for a couple of longer bolts because these wheels are about 1/4 inch wider than the old ones.

So I'm back again experiencing high speed and abnormal wheel vibrations.

  1. Glad you got your wheels replaced! And I think you will find the wider wheel size works better than the thinner one--doesn't get stuck as often or vibrate as much over bumps. Not sure of that since no air is involved, but it will work better in sand than the thinner ones~
