Up your kiddo and cargo carrying game with this super handy handrail system. The LT2 Hooptie lets kids and parents feel safe and secure while riding, and will hold up to 1 adult or 3 children when paired with the U-Tubes for feet support. Those looking to carry cargo can use the Hooptie to contain cargo on the deck – i.e. milk crates that can increase carrying capacity – or it can be used as attachment points to hang cargo off of, like bike camping sleeping bags.
The LT2 Hooptie is made of a front and rear metal upright bracket that installs onto your LT2 V-racks (newer Xtracycle models only) or LT1 v.2 FlightDeck (older Xtracycle models and Surly Big Dummies), and two removable and adjustable horizontal metal and foam padded hand rails. The hand rails have both an inner hand-rail (covered in a black foam padding) and outer protection rail that helps defend your precious cargo’s hands on every ride. The inner rail can easily be removed for carrying larger loads. With 2 adjustable width settings, the wider setting accommodates Yepp Maxi EasyFit kids seats, and the narrower setting is great for a safe and snug fit without a Yepp kids seat.
TO PROTECT TINY TOES (AND BIG FEET), XTRACYCLE WHEELSKIRTS OR BAGS ARE REQUIRED WHEN RIDING WITH PASSENGERS.
Either the LT2 FlightDeck (no Hooptie Retrofit Kit needed) or LT1 version 2 FlightDeck and Hooptie Retrofit Kit are necessary to install an LT2 Hooptie.
LT2 FlightDecks and LT1 V.2 FlightDecks (with the Hooptie Retrofit Kit.)
