Update on #316

Becky was featured earlier this year as #316

Hi xtracycle guy:

I am already on your web site, but I thought I would send you a few pics of some new mods. I added some really nice handlebars that I got in Amsterdam (and attached to the snapdeck with some plumbing hardware) and a snapdeck pad with dingle-berries (which is what a friend of mine calls them).

Becki (and Monty)

Hello the photos are attached are of the Chaisecruzer or Bikeashaw at least until some gives me a better name for it.

It is an xtracycle /bakfiets missing link.

It is a single speed with tubeless 36" tires
wide custom hubs
3 disk brakes
14.5' feet long
3' wide

weight still unknown

Wheels courtesy of my Mt bike

This is the family's 3 rd xtracycle-ish bike and our fist bakfiets
It was built by us for the 2009 Burning Man for our transport and as a test platform.

Hope you all enjoy it.

434: Dave's Golf Xtracycle

Here's my Specialized Rock Hopper conversion. I built it up for shopping excursions, but I get the most comments when I load up my golf clubs and push cart and head out for a round of golf.

431 & 432: Cape Cleare Big Dummys

Thing 1 and Thing 2. Why have just one BD??? Cape Cleare uses these to deliver line-caught salmon on converted aluminum ladders. Too cool.

Update on #146: Val Kleitz "Rolling Jackass" Xtracycle

Val got his Xtracycle EARLY (first few months they were out) and put it on his "Rolling Jackass" cargo bike and has ridden with tons of stuff. He is also an early and well-known builder of centerstands (Rolling Jackass centerstands, of course) and has done many Xtracycle repairs, including referrals from the folks at Xtracycle.

Val is also an all-year cyclist in Seattle area and does long rides in jeans and work boots. Inspiration! You can e-mail him at and see his centerstands at

Val was originally featured as #146, striking fear into the hearts of drivers everywhere.

Beware the Dreadnought!

You can also catch Val on Flickr.
