Xtracycle's SideCar is best used with a deck - this HDPE deck is manufactured in Minnesota from recycled municipal garbage cans. HPDE is what your plastic cutting board is likely made of, and it makes a great deck for the same reasons: it is waterproof, UV proof, resists scratches and dings, and is very strong.
This deck is 1/8" thick and has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. Secure it to your SideCar with the hardware included on the SideCar.
Using recycled plastic reduces our ecological impact and keeps perfectly good plastic out of the waste stream. These decks are made outside of Minneapolis, MN by RPI. Check out their awesome process for making new plastic sheets out of old plastic products in this tour.

Remove the M5 bolts from the SideCar frame. Save these bolts, you'll need them to attach the deck later! Place the deck over the Sidecar frame matching the rounded corners on the deck to those on the frame, and with the Xtracycle logo is facing up (or down, you rebel you). Line up the holes in the deck with the riv-nuts in the frame, and insert the screws through the deck into the riv-nuts. Tighten all the screws alternating sides then go out and ride!
