      No, the stand is a work-in-progress by Xtracycle. It folds up and stays in place by means of
      a ratcheting mechanism. It is a prototype -- there's more work to be done. It will fit the Big
      Dummy, too.

      Also on display were a new deck pad, very well thought out, and an alternative set of v-
      racks featuring a rail for mounting standard panniers, 2 to a side. Again, prototypes.

      The new design activity is to help underscore the message that Xtracycle is an open
      platform at a time when a number of non-Xtracycle-compatible longtail bike designs are
      appearing.
