comment Safe to ride with Kenda 27 x 1/38 inch studded tires in snow/ice?
Do you know the model number of your tire? If not is it a slick, street, or does it have some tread blocks on it?

comment Hard to pedal even on flat street
Was the temperature at or below freezing? I'm currently repacking the bearings on my son's Trek because the stock grease got way too stiff at around freezing.

comment Burley Flex Connector, square tube vs round tube, does it really matter?
@Criggie It works great. Maybe a bit rattly, but the whole trailer is that way. I posted an answer with the experience.

comment Why am I getting no power when I pedal?
@Dave WD40 is not a lubricant, it is pretty good at dissolving grime and old grease, but you will need to follow it up with something. Maybe Phil Woods Tenacious Oil (amazon.com/Phil-Wood-Tenacious-Oil/dp/B003UWHNIM) or slightly lighter.

comment How to minimize damage from pitted cones?
@Criggie It was pretty hard for me to find replacements. I tried ebay and various Google incantations for a while before I found a guy in Canada with new original stock. This bike is from the era when Raleigh did things the Raleigh way with Raleigh standards. The threads on this axle are a different pitch and the bearings are not the same size as today (if I recall right). To make matters worse, this wheel does not use lock nuts, the wheel has to be installed right or the cone over tightens. The great St. Sheldon has a hole page just for these bikes.
