The Crazy Radonneur shares how the Xtracycle FreeRadical has changed his life and come to the rescue in only a few short months of owning it. Anywhere from picking up & shuttling lost co-workers, to going on a pizza run, to transporting plasma TVs, he has done it all.
"An Xtracycle...completely changes the travel habits, thereby improving the physical condition and further enhance the parent-child complicity while taught to deal with reality, working their concentration, responsibility, dealing with frustrations, and increase physical desenrascanço!"
"The bike ride is incredibly stable. If I load down my panniers on my Bridgestone, I can feel them swaying and whipping the back end a little. Tonight I picked up a couple of bags of groceries on the way home and the ride was great. Having the cargo lower makes a huge difference in stability."
"I was flabbergasted upon riding the Xtracycle with the kids for the first time...it was so much easier for me to pilot and get up hills than the tandem/trailer! I purchased my own X just a few weeks later, and it was my primary vehicle for the next several years..."
"For me the Xtracycle is an awesome safety net for the kids. I can pop them on the back with their bike -- dad sag wagon style...I never would have attempted it without Xtracycle as backup, but Giles ended up riding all but the first 2 miles (Ok, these were up and down but the rest was downhill.)"
"When my son started Kindergarten, I wanted to bike with him to school but the route is to busy for him to bike on his own bike. The Xtracycle is my carpool bike - right now for my oldest son, but soon for my younger son as well. We love it. The neighborhood kids beg me to give them rides too!"
