Re: Yakima Blockhead on a Free Radical
I posted my experience on towing bikes (and some links to pictures) and there is some feedback on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rootsradicals/message/13831
I think clamping a hub on there as some others have done would allow for yaw of tow bike. I don't think I would attempt a passenger on any set up as it would put too much strain on either a big dummy or X.
If you want to transport a kids bike so you can ride home together - you can slot the front wheel into the free radical bags and it will tow ok ( i have tried this with an adult bike and it works if you really strap it tight).
all the best

She rides her own geared hybrid but tires out on longer rides. I would like to be able to pull off her front wheel and mount it to the xtracycle to create a tag-along type set up when she is worn out.
