    Nice looking Trek. I just picked up a 2000 Trek 800 and am debating on doing the xtracycle conversion.

    No debate, just do. You won't regret it. Treks make excellent donor cycles. I went on a 22 mile ride today just cruising around and had a blast.

    But that bottle cap opener thing looks like it might actually be a knee-cap remover. Ouch. Maybe you can position it facing forward, directly under the stem? It'll be more "stealth" and incognito that way too. Just a thought. I hope your knees are okay.

    Here's mine; a 2010 complete (still waiting for my pedals and fenders). Just finished putting it all together.

    Aaronpv2 & Cowboygrrl nice looking rigs.
    Kuan , Is your kayak just strapped to the Xtracycle rack or are you using a long board / kayak rack on the side ?
    Aaronpv2 how long have you had the tall white kitty litter containers ? I can't find anything that large around here ?

    I'm using a Yakima kayak rack on the wideloaders.

    It's not that stable actually, but good enough for a 2-3 mile trip.

    Thanks Kuan, I was curious. I use mine with a wide loader and strap it to the rack. Mine also is a little unstable. Just looking to maybe find a better way or a tip to make it more stable.
    Thanks

    Maiden voyage to the grocery store (actually my dog made me go to the park first). Parked at the store; empty.

    So far this is Rev 4 of my cargo bikes here in Boston. The first was a butcher to see if I wanted one, the black one I posted last year was better, this red one is my 2011 version and my next one is going to be based on a Schwinn step thru frame. Tell me what you think. I'm also building a lode runner trike for someone else this month. Haven't gotten the kickstand on it yet, but that'll be soon.
    I wanted to do the color scheme on the cargo platform red/wood, like a kid's wagon, but also wanted to use it sooner.

    The white buckets were from Cobbworks. They were the original Oyster Bucket Pannier, website seems down for quite sometime so they may no longer be producing them as most people are "rolling" there own these days. I think these are the exact same buckets, if you don't mind ordering online http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=23471 .
    Hope this helps

    Circe Cycles Brut

    It doesn't have the same loading capacity as my Xtracycle, but on the other hand passengers can assist you in pedaling...

    I've never tried a Circe Cycle, so I can't say it if it works in practice, but I like the idea.

    I don't know if it was on here or somewhere else I saw some talk on that subject. Like the pic of the Circe the cargo deck would be pretty high making it easier to be unstable. But yes with BAGS down low I think it would do ok. If I had an old tandem I might would try it. But I wouldn't spend much to see how good it worked.

    My steampunk dummy.




    V1.0 of my dummy setup. A bar switch is probably in my future and probably some framebags for bikepacking. The thing is a truck loaded and a beast with the xtracycle bits taken off.

    Edit: Fixed image links.

    I`ve been helping a friend with this ghetto build, loosely based on the Madsen. The front half is Univega Rover, the limo stretch is 3/4 and 1" EMT, and the rear is a Muddy Fox kids mtb. We got lucky finding that little bike- most 20 inchers I run into are either aluminum or have no derailler hanger (Yeah, I know, we could have used one of those claw thingies). The rack is currently underway. It`s an 8 x 42 oval from 1/2 EMT and we kinda sorta know how we want to mount it, but not yet positive.

    We still need to come up with some kind of stand that doesn`t interfere with the chain, and maybe (hopefully) some low platforms like on the Mundo or Xtracycle Wideloaders. I can already see that we stepped on our weenies by putting the BMX bottom bracket up so high. That was my brainfart- I thought it would be a good idea to maintain as much curb clearance as possible. Now that it`s in and we know that it`s in the way of the upper chain it occurs to uss that the LOWER chain is going to limit curb clearance anyway. Duh! Well, it`s fixable at least. We can get enough room by grinding a quarter inch or so off the shell before we cap it.

    Yes. I built them in the fall with Velocity Aerohead rims and Paul track hubs.

    Hunter Cargo!

    That Hunter cargo bike is awesome! It makes me think of a Cannondale Hooligan turned into a cargo bike. Very cool!

    I can totally see the Hooligan - although this bike pre-dates it, so maybe the Hooligan is based on Erik Zo's Hunter (especially given the love that it felt for him in Japan) - but have always seen it as more of an American Moulton/Raleigh 20. Rick did so much work on this frame to make it special, yet its still got an at-home-on-the-shop-floor, work-a-day Schwinn cycle truck-vibe that I love.

    Glad you like it. It is different!

    Ah, a take-down frame! I didn`t notice the "Ritchey slip" thing at the top of your seat tube, thought it was just a two tone paint job. Then I googled on the model (I`m a fan of little wheels) and up popped Flickr picture of apparently the same bike, but with a little more info. That is yours on Flickr, isn`t it?

    Rick originally built 3 of these bikes. One was for a veteran bike courier in San Francisco (Erik), another got immediately turned into a motor-driven cycle and he rode the third around for a few weeks after displaying it at the 2008 North American Handmade Bicycle show. I bought that one from him.

    Erik and I both have pictures of our bikes on flickr, and Rick has lots of pictures of subsequent cycle trucks he has made - mostly for the Japanese market - since.

    Here it is on Rick's photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/huntercycles/2589038034/

    And mine on arrival here in Winnipeg, Canada: http://www.flickr.com/photos/5622427...57626032405299

    I don't have the name brand of it on me because I'm away from home right now, but I've found an excellent solution to the kickstand & cargobike problem. Tandem's have a center stand that bolts to the frame right in front of the rear wheel, folds up on one side of the frame & flips down to support the bike in the upright, vertical position. Mine was $30 or $40 and they come kind of long and let you cut them down as needed. My cargo bike (a 26" bakfeit clone) used the full length of it, but was easier and prettier than making one.

    On flat terrain full throttle totally no pedaling, 18miles on cheap and heavy 36V 12A SLA batteries. Top speed is 22mph but I am currently geared for climbing. I have been riding in our local trail (Tapia Canyon in Castaic, CA) for the past few days testing and seeing how much it can hold the abuse riding off-road. I did a ride yesterday with my 7 year old son, we did 25miles, batteries started cutting out on the 18th mile, on the way home. So I just had to pedal easy, it's a good thing, going home was a bit downhill. There were some pretty steep climbs that I really needed to apply full power. Going downhill, I didn't use any pedal assist. I let gravity do it's thing. I am surprised how the Yuba handles great despite riding it rigid and with a 65lb kid in the rear deck. Ofcourse I was riding with caution, specially with my precious cargo in the back. Btw, Im still using the stock 14-28 freewheel cogs. An 11-34 freewheel would have been great. Also, Lithium batts, I can probably get 3 to 4 miles out of them, maybe.

    The Madsen is interesting.

    Looks like a fair alternative to the Surly.
