BE READY FOR ANYTHING WITH EDGERUNNER 27D
The EdgeRunner 27D is the bike that might just save the day. You never know when you’ll need to rescue a friend stranded at a train station, schlep the gear for a bike camping trip for four, or find a really nice coffee table that needs to be delivered across town.
The small 20” rear wheel makes loading cargo or children easy, and it handles like a bike should. The 27D features a no-nonsense rugged and durable 3x9-speed drivetrain with a super-low gear for climbing hills while loaded, and a high gear that will allow you to pedal on descents. With Schwalbe Big Ben puncture-resistant tires and Avid BB-7 disk brakes, the 27D rolls smoothly and stops quickly, with the added benefit of toolless brake pad changes for easy maintenance. The stiff straight blade, no-taper cromo fork, downhill handlebar, and the wide aluminum platform pedals put you in control of your urban adventures, on and off road. The 27D comes spec'd with convertible all-weather X2 or CarryAll bags, and a heavy-duty double-legged KickBack kickstand.
This comes with mounts for the versatile, strong, and useful PorterRack.
EQUIPPED WITH ALL NEW LT2 ACCESSORIES
A full range of Xtracycle LongTail 2 accessories will allow you to adapt the bike as your needs change. Have a child under the age of four? Yepp Easy Fit Maxi kids seats with Xtracycle LT2 Yepp Adapters are the solution. Have a child over the age of four? Add a family pack to your bike, which provides hand and footrests for your passengers. MagicCarpets pad the deck so that your passengers sit comfortably. Add custom Xtracycle fenders that will keep you from getting sprayed when riding through puddles. Want to carry lots and lots of cargo? Consider getting a SideCar, which folds down, so that you can carry even more.

Wall Street Journal - “The lower center of gravity translated into a slightly smoother ride, not only for me but for my wife and daughter, who rode on the back as I pedaled, quite comfortably, to a local park.”
Men’s Journal - “Even fully loaded, the EdgeRunner is surprisingly manageable, thanks to a minuscule 20-inch rear wheel that lowers the center of gravity and extends the wheelbase for extra stability without making the bike longer from end to end.”
Bicycle Times - “Of every cargo bike I’ve ridden (and I’ve ridden a lot), the EdgeRunner is the easiest to ride for both experienced and novice cyclists alike.”
Blog - Hum of the City - “EdgeRunner: Best longtail ever. No contest.”
Blog - Davey Oil- “I am a big fan. A big, big fan. A big, HUGE fan of Xtracycles.”
Blog - Truck Bike - “The verdict thus far: Awesome. It's everything I hoped it would be, and well, even better!”

WHAT'S IN A NAME...27D
This bike has 27 speeds which gives you a full range of gears that allow you to climb steep hills, ride on flat terrain, and pedal while descending.
D stands for 'derailer.' Derailers allow you to shift gears, and the vast majority of multi-speed bicycles use them. They give a wide gear range, which is great when you’re carrying a lot of weight around.
