410Re: [rootsradicals] great stand for an xtracycle
- Jul 6, 2006looks good. The beef I have with the rock sturdy is that it can't be used with the wide loaders, which makes it kinda moot in my eyes. It appears that this stand is ready to be used along with wide loaders. Is it so??

it has been a great great thing. it's got the ease of use that the
stock kick stand has (no fussing) with the stability that the fancy
xtracycle stand has. best of both worlds.

we'll be doing another camping trip this week with the xtracycle. my 3
y.o and I have made one overnighter. This time, my wife will be riding
her bike and joining us. should be fun.
the longer i use the xtracycle the more I love it. I have many bikes,
but I find my butt on this one much more frequently (time wise, if not
actual miles) than any other bike. It's great for loading up with
camping chairs and a snack and some towels and hitting the spray pad
this time of year. not to mention that we've not used our car for
grocery shopping for about 3 months now...
i also think that i've identified about the perfect "off the shelf
bike" for xtracycle usage: the novara buzz. not the big buzz -- but
the buzz. It's got 26" wheels, disc brakes, riser bars, appropriate
gearing (38/28 up front with 11/34 in the back --perfect!!) . Hardy
components. And it's not insanely expensive at $650 -- just mostly
