The Xtracycle is done. I repurposed my old, well used mountain bike by installing an Xtracycle Freeradical on the back. Now it's a heavy hauling, off-road touring, winter commuting monster bike. Xtracycle calls it a, "SUB"; Sport Utility Bike.
Rides better than I thought it would. The Schwable Marathon XR tires really soak up the bumps. Took a lot of spacers to get the handlebars up in a comfortable position.
The extra stem will hold a section of handlebar to mount lights and possibly another water bottle cage. Very useful mod as it acts like a big spacer.
This will be my winter commuter as well. With the addition of studded tires for icy conditions.
