  • ...the deck directly so I don't need this any longer. It was $150 but I'm looking for $75. Anyone interested? ping me here, or at thom@^$1 I'm in the SF Bay Area but it could be shipped...

  • Hi! I've got a friend in Chicago that is interested in the frameset. Would you ship? How could I put him in contact with you?

  • Miguel, I really like the homegrown solution for rails in back that you did, vs the Hooptie. I mean, if the bike’s job is to haul kids on a regular and routine basis, the Hooptie is a fine solution. DIY allows you to design in more flexibility, though, which I like. For example, I like to tow a bike to one side, which some kids seats and the Hooptie itself would block. I’m...

  • For about a year, I rode a custom build based off of a 29er wedded with a free radical kit. It was a pretty involved project, and I posted about it before on this group. The biggest hurdle was the FAP: the tongue of the Free Radical could not reach a suitable anchor point on the 29er, because the frame's stays were too long. Ultimately I had a machinist cyclist buddy build a...

  • Hi Radicals, I'm continuing to upgrade my cargo bike, and am wondering some could offer a few suggestions. 1) Does anyone have plans for a child seat of any sort or a recommendation for something to strap a 3+ year old in to? I have a hooptie ordered, but since my guy isn't 4 for a while, I think having something for him to sit in would be good (and don't want to order a hooptie...

  • I recommend MAAS Powdercoating in Livermore.

  • I have a friend that has a Mixte/step-through frame for the Xtracycle Free Radical project he has ridden for about 3 years now, and he really loves it. In fact, the single most unnerving part of my riding experience is getting on and off. I drop the seat post to mount/dismount.

  • definitely appreciate the aluminum. Also, I keep the suspension fork locked out and it's really fine.

  • I haven't posted much about my conversion, other than to ask about certain issues I needed to resolve, but I ride a custom 29er conversion and while each build has strengths and weaknesses, a tall rider such as yourself should seriously consider the size. It would probably be great for you. Unfortunately, when price is an issue as well, it can be somewhat prohibitive, as there are...
