I have to agree with Devian here. I've been an avid xtracycle rider
for years and daily commuter with it. I waited around to hear the
first reviews and builds on the BD before committing to an "upgrade"
to the fully integrated long-tail concept. Having considered the long
term enjoyment I've gotten from my current set up with the minimal
maintenance and hassle, I've come around to the idea of purchasing and
building up a BD. I went to the LBS and placed a watch on when they
would become available.
Now I hear about the price hike and have to admit that it has dampened
my desire a bit. I may instead just opt for some long overdue
upgrades to the current set up and maybe buy new bags from xtracycle.
