Up your kiddo and cargo carrying game with this super handy handrail system. The LT2 Hooptie lets kids and parents feel safe and secure while riding, and will hold up to 1 adult or 3 children when paired with the U-Tubes for feet support. Those looking to carry cargo can use the Hooptie to contain cargo on the deck - i.e. milk crates that can increase carrying capacity - or it can be used as attachment points to hang cargo off of, like bike camping sleeping bags.
The LT2 Hooptie is made of a front and rear metal upright bracket that installs onto your V-racks or LT1 v.2 FlightDeck, and two removable and adjustable horizontal metal and foam padded hand rails. The hand rails have both an inner hand-rail (covered in a black foam padding) and outer protection rail that helps defend your precious cargo's hands on every ride. The inner rail can easily be removed for carrying larger loads. With 2 adjustable width settings, the wider setting accommodates Yepp Maxi EasyFit kids seats, and the narrower setting is great for a safe and snug fit without a Yepp kids seat.
Either the LT2 FlightDeck (no Hooptie Retrofit Kit needed) or LT1 version 2 FlightDeck (Hooptie Retrofit Kit required) are necessary to install an LT2 Hooptie. Not sure if your bike is all set up to install a Hooptie? Check out the "What do I need to install a Hooptie on my bike?" Knowledge Based Article to make sure you are good to go. The Hooptie cannot be used with a wooden SnapDeck or the metal Surly Big Dummy deck but can be used on a Surly if the deck is replaced. For more information on installing a Hooptie on a Surly Big Dummy, please refer to the Knowledge Based Article, "Xtracycle Accessories on the Surly Big and Big Fat Dummy".
To protect tiny toes (and big feet), Xtracycle bags are required when riding with passengers.
