Yay! You just got your new Xtracycle and now it’s time to get it home from the bike shop or take it on that family road trip. Check on the options below for transporting an Xtracycle.

CARS, VANS, TRUCKS

Another hitch option that some of our riders have used with success is a motorcycle hitch rack. Black Widow makes a hitch mounted folding motorcycle rack that can hold one bike and comes with a loading ramp. 

Be warned – standard rear mounted bike carriers are not recommended for the EdgeRunner or Stoker! The EdgeRunner and the Stoker are longer than most cars are wide, and strap on rear carriers are generally not rated for the weight of a fully kitted out EdgeRunner, Stoker or even RFA (despite it being shorter). Besides the one mentioned above, most hitch-mounted rear tray style bike racks are also not suitable due to the EdgeRunner and Stoker wheelbase. We have found that a rear cargo basket with an added fork block makes a great carrier – removing the front wheel and reversing the fork brings the bike’s length down, and the rear wheel of the bike can be easily secured to the basket.

ONE LAST NOTE:

Many motorcycle towing companies will happily move an e-Cargo bike for you, and the rates tend to be quite reasonable. If you’re car-free or car-lite and you need to get your bike serviced, motorcycle towing companies are a great option.
