      As I was leaving Costco on Saturday (riding my Xtracycle, of course!), a Smart Car was on the way in. My first thought was… “bet she can’t fit much in that!” Which is what I’m sure people think when they see me ride up on my bike! So I got thinking…which can hold more? Xtracycle (with WideLoaders and/or Long Loaders) or Smart Car?

       

      This is what I found on the Smart Car Website:

      Luggage compartment capacity  7.8 (up to beltline)/12 (to roof) cu. ft. 

      Found on a Smart Car board that the dimensions are 39" wide x 27" tall x 21" deep (to roof)

       

      Any thoughts on which can haul more cargo?

       

      My initial thoughts –

      Xtracycle – at least 1 adult & 1 child, or up to 3 children

      Smart Car – 1 passenger

      Xtracycle wins

       

      Xtracycle – Kayak, surfboard or ladder

      Smart Car – The manual states “No racks or loads may be secured to the roof of the vehicle”

      Xtracycle wins (unless the Smart Car tows a trailer)

       

      I don’t have measurements for any of my big loads. L But looking at the pictures I had taken and guesstimating what else could fit…I think the Xtracycle could easily come close or match what can fit in the cargo space in the Smart Car!

       

      Anyone have a Smart Car or a friend with one that you could have a cargo contest with?

          According to the manual, you’re not supposed to put anything on the roof or drive with the tailgate down on the Smart Car.

           

          Granted, I have seen pictures of people that do those things anyway. J

           

          There may be other ways to haul them that I didn’t know about.

           

          Not trying to bash the Smart Car here. Just comparing cargo hauling.

              Hi Jenni;

              I bet you can't do this with a ``smart car''

              http://picasaweb.google.com/joelthebicyclist/BikeMove2009#5429689655775774802

              Unfortunately no photos were taken from the front but the bike is also
              carrying a pair of Ortlieb rear panniers and a 50L rectangular bucket on
              a front Surly nice rack.

              Cheers

                It's about 4 inches off the deck and there are no problems straddling the width. It couldn't be any narrower, and if you remove the seat, the legs do scuff against the side of the racks. But it's no big deal - it fits, and it doesn't restrict the amount of luggage one could carry.

                        I had looked at the instructions, but it's not entirely clear from the pictograms how it could be adapted for Xtracycle usage.  I was hoping to find someone who had actually performed the surgery and gave it a yay or nay.

                        I visited Ocean Cycles yesterday and the Junior was the first thing they recommended to me. I didn't see it set up in person, but was told it's a quick 'n clean install.

                            I found a $45 car seat that I believe I can mount to a plywood base, then strap to my Xtra deck.

                            Bonus #1 - it's cheap, but better built than everything I've looked at so far.

                            Bonus #2 - it matches my bike.

                            Bonus #3 - the brand is Cosco, owned by Dorel, who also owns Cannondale, so it'll probably crack randomly in its first year of use. :@

                                It's amazing how gigantic some of these "convertible" kid seats are, and how unsuitable many of them are for this application due to unusual base construction that can't be easily attached to a flat piece of wood.
