Alex wrote in to share this Xtracycle conversion of a 20 year old Trek 950, and a bit of his story:
"This is my 6th Xtracycle I've built, and I also had a Big Dummy that I recently sold to a big dummy owner that got his stolen. I've got to say it is the best one yet, using a 20 year old American-built lugged Trek bike that took me from London to Sydney in '95. I am glad to be able to ride it again, it's been watching the longs go by, waiting for his turn. Rides beautifully, no flex at all. I've lent or sold most of my other longs, but there is one particular friend of mine waiting for the edge runner, he doesn't believe the others are stiff enough."
"I've got three kids, but haven't yet had three up, I guess I need a Hooptie? Quite a few grannies have ridden on the back, my oldest is about 85, loved it."
Two of Alex's other creations are up on the Xtracycle Gallery, numbers 130 and 383 (in order below):
It's awesome to see families getting out by bike and Alex has been doing so for over eight years now. Perhaps we need to make an Xtra-Xtracycle attachment for carting three kids... Thanks for sharing a small slice of your Xtracycle adventures with us Alex, and keep riding!Want to see your picture on our Xtracycle Riders blog?
