Nice, guys! Someone mentioned a "throttle joint". It's also called a "heim joint" or "rod end". I wanted to use one of those but couldn't find one. You'd think Ace Hardware would sell them.

EDIT I think I see what you mean. The U shaped metal piece is just part of the kiddie trailer's hitch arm. It's designed so you can put a third wheel on it and push it while jogging. Obviously I'm not going to be doing much of that.

Darin, please post pics when you get that catamaran behind a bike! I would love to see that.
He gave me a dollar. A blood-soaked dollar.
I cannot get the spot out but it's okay; It still works in the store
