Included are pictures of how I made my own wide loaders in a couple of hours with hand tools.
1. Sawed some plywood
2. Stuck some dowel into the appropriate orfices. (Wood mallet is a good tool here.)
3. Fastened the plywood withto the dowels.
I have some bicycle-related stuff here: http://theaccidentalhermit.blogspot.com/search/label/bicycle

Here is a pic of my daughter Leila on our xtracycle with a custom mounted Bobike child seat.
You guys inspire a lot of people to get out of the car and on a bike. I have converted 3 bikes over to xtracycle for various friends.
My bike has a custom bike carrier to take my race bike to the races or the velodrome.
Thanks you your inspiration,

Parked outside of the Hiller Aviation Museum @ the 2009 Vertical Challenge.
I go to this every year... I LOVE IT. This museum is really a unique treasure for the peninsula. Go check out the back story of Stanley Hiller and his bubble copters.

Custom Xtracycle, Pugsley style!
Photo courtesy Chris (more pix here).
This is a custom built bike by Banjo Cycles here in Madison. It has been dubbed the Big Dumb Pug. It is what happens when you leave a Pugsley and Big Dummy in a closet overnight alone! I just got it built up yesterday and rode it downtown…For Wisconsin winters, this bike will get me to the store where my others will stop dead in their tracks!
