MANY OF THE PHOTOS ON THIS SITE SHOW RIDERS DOING DANGEROUS THINGS! DON'T THINK THAT MEANS WE THINK YOU SHOULD IMITATE THEM! MANY OF THE RIDERS SHOWN ON THIS SITE HAVE BEEN INJURED DOING THE THINGS SHOWN ON THIS SITE!!! RIDE DEFENSIVELY! PAY ATTENTION TO THE WORLD AROUND YOU! ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET; IT'S A SIMPLE WAY TO HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE! IF YOU SURF ON THE BACK OF AN XTRACYCLE SUB, YOU ARE INVITING DISASTER THAT WILL LIKELY LEAD TO INJURY AND COULD LEAD TO DEATH!!! KNOW YOUR LIMITS!!! AND DON'T FORGET TO BUY HEALTH INSURANCE!
PARTICULAR DANGERS OF THE SPORT UTILITY BICYCLE!!!
In addition to being good for your mind, your body, your community, and your planet, cycling can be very dangerous. Cycling with two people on one bike and/or with cargo can be even more dangerous. The user of this product should know that participating in cycling may involve serious injury or death.
Always wear a helmet; this includes any passengers. There is absolutely, positively no question that they help prevent injury and save lives.
Standing, kneeling, or sitting backwards or sideways (both legs on the same side of the bike) on the SnapDeck while the bike is moving or stopped can easily result in broken limbs, loss of control of the bike, destroyed rims, a destroyed bike frame, or worse.
Carrying a load and riding a long-wheelbase bike both require getting accustomed to. Practice maneuvering and braking on a flat, hazard- and traffic-free street with and without a load before going out into the world.
Carrying a seated passenger or heavy load involves risks, foremost of which can be decreased braking power and increased stopping distance. Always make sure you have at least two well-adjusted brakes. Drum, roller, or coaster brakes ARE NOT suited to hilly riding or heavy loads and can fail under serious strain‹when you need them most! We strongly recommend rim and/or disc brakes, though these carry their own risks: under severe loads (as when carrying a passenger or cargo at high speed) a very strong front brake can lead to failure of the front fork. For this reason, don't use the front brake by itself; the rear or rear and front brake should be used in all braking situations.
The user of this product acknowledges both an understanding and an assumption of the risks involved in cycling, cycling with cargo, and cycling with a passenger. Children incapable of riding a bike on their own or under the age of 6 should not ride on the FreeRadical as passengers, unless they are secured in the Xtracycle Child Seat accessory, which doesn't yet exist. Children should not ride as passengers unless an adult is operating the Xtracycle SUB.
No warning is a substitute for good judgment. Use yours always. If you have reason to suspect that your own judgment isn't great, share your plans with somebody you respect, and ask for a second opinion.
