Never tried it, but the opinion I read from those who had is that it is best for a second bike you want to dedicate to large loads. Think of it: would you like to modify your well-beloved XXX (insert your favourite brand here) by lenghtening its rear seatstay a lot?
And while it is possible to remove the Xtrabike extension when you don't need it, it's not a practical or convenient thing to do. Besides, watch your paint job.
OTOH, the idea of handling and locking a single bike as opposed to a bike and trailer is more convenient for some commutes.
