New Sulky

Just picked up one of these today on eBay for $160. I thought it was a pretty good deal. Hope it will last me a while

Replace the bushings twice a year and it will do you well. But it might hurt the knees with the weird wobble affect of that style. It did mine.

You mean cuz it's a 2 wheel, or because of the brand?

Because it's a 2 wheel with a hitch. The fixed 2 wheels sulky is pretty sweet. Like a stander almost.

For a hundred dollars more you could have bought the jungle wheels. Much much better build. Not to mention the tires are way better quality.
