Free radical on a CF frame - Am I crazy?
I have a 1993 Cadec CFM-2 hardtail mountain bike converted into a commuter. It's old but 2,300 of the total 3,000 miles have only been in the last year.
I am toying with the idea of adding a Xtracycle Free Radical Kit to this frame. Am I crazy? Can the lugged CF/Aluminum frame handle the loading? Note that all attachment points would be to aluminum.
I'd love to build up a Big Dummy. Just can't afford it. The Free Radical Kit seems like a good idea from the standpoint that I can always move it to another frame in the future.
I'm not sure there's anyone on this forum with a strong opinion but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.
