This is our 3-year old on our first Xtracycle. It is converted from a Zize bicycle called the A New Leaf or ANL for short. The ANL was designed for heavier than average riders and makes a excellent steel donor bike.
I love the Shimano Nexus Internally Geared Hub and the front disc brake.
We are looking forward to a lot more use from our Xtras!

My Xtracycle installed on a 2007 Jamis Citizen 1.0 700c hybrid. Used riser plugs to lift Vracks and snapdeck so I could get a fender on the stock 700cx38 tire. Just fit. I added a Stokemonkey electric motor to make this a combination hauling/commuting machine. It really tames the hills; carrying 80 lbs (my highest load) or nothing is about the same with the Stokemonkey. Only difference is the speed climbing hills.
