    I lost 3500 pounds today.

    Maybe I gained a little weight instead. I bought this xtracycle used. The frame is a $39 Nashbar special. I am still minus a proper fitting front deraileur. And I need to conect the chain. Anyone else have one and care to share comments? It is going to be my grocery getter.

    What do you get when you cross a Bob trailer with a pannier rack?

    That's what that looks like to me. ;^)

    Definitely has possibilities as an all-purpose pack mule, and you'll be the only guy on the block with one.

    Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.

    Wow, I'd never heard of such a thing, so I googled. That looks like a versatile SUB.



    This guy looks like he's having fun. Or has a good buzz on.....

    They've been around for a couple of years

    I've ridden one on several long road rides. I've even took one on a local trail. Climbing and tight switchbacks sucked but as a commuter it's really nice. My daughter loves to ride around town on the back. If you're going to carry and adult (or 3) you will definfinately need to build a super strong rear wheel. I've taco'd two wheels giving people rides from bar to bar.
    A hippie from Oregon by the name of Kipchogee (i believe that's the spelling) invented it. I met him once in Austin and drank some beer with him, cool guy. He tours the country in a bus that uses vegetable oil for fuel.

    As far as the chain goes, you'll need a tandem chain.

    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Just took a closer look at the pic and noticed you already have a chain.
