487: Miguel's Xtracycle

Since I've sent my two kids chair version, I've changed the setup a little bit. The center of gravity was way too high, and they didn't like the chairs, because it restricted their movements (and they end up behaving worse)

So , I've cut a new snapdeck out of plywood, covered it with a bit of leather and some cushioning, bent some aluminium tubbing - and now they have reasonable security, they don't feel "tied down" and enjoy the trip much more! (it's also much more versatile, since I don't have to carry the two seats around, and the bike is always ready to carry them)

I also upgraded the front end, with a new fork, disc brake, and Alfine dynamo hub powering a B&M IQ Cyo R headlight and Toplight Line rearlight

Riding around Seattle, with or without 50 lb daughter on the back. Bianchi mixtie frame. Fast and far and full of cargo. Love it.

482: Rob 's Xtracycle

Just built up my big dummy! So of course I had to have my son surf on the back! Wish I had gotten this sooner.

481: Vaultbrad's Xtracycle

My amazing new Xtra-dale! 2004 Cannondale f600 + Xtracycle + Errands to run = Best time ever.

I am 100% satisfied with the set-up, and I can't wait to see what(or who) else I can haul around Knoxville, Tn.

480: DualFrontDiscs's Xtracycle

This is my Gary Fisher Big Sur Xtracycle conversion.

I replaced the suspension fork with a Surly Big Dummy Fork. Just finished it yesterday. Still need to get a new saddle and some bits and bobs.

Very happy so far.
