1128Thanks, Brian, & what kind of ride
- Jun 13, 2007
I like using bikes for utilitarian purposes, so I'm not looking for an ideal ride. I need to get back into shape, I don't like going to the gym, I want to get more cars off the road, I want my son to grow up using his bike for transportation as well as recreation. My son is with me a lot (he attends an alternative school part-time) so my biking usually needs to include him. Sounds like the Xtracycle could help make that happen more often.

I have to concur with this. Ride your route with some weight. I
have some killer hills, and I ride an old Gary Fisher +
FreeRadical + Burley D'Lite. They suck for sure, but what
matters to you? For me, the car-free nursery school trips mean a
lot, so is the ride an ideal one? No. But I get there, and it
could be worse. For all these questions about "is it doable?" I
think the answer, as Derek said, is "Yes." But you might have to
really want it. If you do, the Xtracycle is a freakin gem.
