Default Miata + big wheel = happy children

Found this larger sized big wheel for $20. How to get it home - hmmm. Will it fit on bike rack - yes and does it look awesome behind a Miata - double yes. I kind of wanted to parade downtown with this racked up on the back while doing drifts!

Imagine pleading to the officer, "Oh no that wasn't me, see I've got this BigWheel attached to my car, I certainly wouldn't be driving aggressively sir....."

So we have a ok gravel driveway with a medium grade to do some light downhilling on. This big wheel has the freewheel drive so you can coast down hill. Too bad I bent the frame after my 1st run. I'm not allowed to ride it anymore......

Lets see some other odd towed/racked items youve taken with your Miata.

her hands are on the bars and she has the "crazy wow" face. My wife laughed the most and said that looks awesome.

I drove the old plastic ones. Usually the front wheel would wear the center down to nothing. There was a slight revival of them last 5 years and they were about $100 new in stores and made of metal (cheap Chinese metal I'm sure) I need a full on carbon unit with ceramic bearings..... oh and a welded diff.......
