Add a Leap chain extension

The perfect amount of chain to add to your existing chain when extending your bicycle with a Leap. 2 quick links included for easy attachment.

The Roller serves multiple purposes on a Leap: as a chain tensioner for better shifting and less likelihood of chain slap.



Core Features of the LEAP:

  • Designed to be super-strong and torsionally rigid, so it won't flex or break under heavy loads at any speed.
  • Connects to almost all adult bikes, including bikes with rear wheel sizes of 20", 24", 26", 650b, 650b+ 700c, 29, and 29+.
  • Secure mounting system attaches firmly to the chainstays near the bottom bracket of the bike that you put the Leap on.
  • Removable racks make it compatible with the vast majority of existing Xtracycle accessories.
  • Ready to convert a regular electric bike into a cargo-carrying one.
  • Passenger capacity: 3 children or 1 adult.
  • Load capacity: 400 lbs. including the weight of the rider.

A few extra details:

  • The next generation KickBack will be available in the Spring but Leap frames include a kickstand plate that can be used with a simple side kickstand for the time being. Do not leave children unattended on your Leap, even with the kickstand engaged.
  • LT1 V-racks and RackLocks will work on a Leap Bare kit. When used with LT1 V-racks, the LT1version2 FlightDeck with Superhooks will also work with a Leap. If transferring an LT1 rack system to a new Leap, you will not need a child seat adapter. 
  • Accessories that will NOT work at LT1 U-tubes and WideLoaders (although it may be possible to modify them to fit), LT1 and LT2 KickBack
