Its ON!!!

Placed my order yesterday so the Xtracycle has been mailed and will be here Friday! COnverting the mountain bike to a utility bike so that I'll have the fixie, the cross, and the utility bike. Too many? Nah, still less than a car.

The big question is do I strip down the mountain bike (a nicer looking Novara) and spray paint it matte black or do I just slap a crap load of stickers on it?

I CAN'T WAIT TO RIDE THIS THING!

Xtracycles look sexy in basic black. Then the nickname for your stretch bike can be Madame X.

Enjoy!

I've had mine for about a week, it's the shiz. friends love surfing up on the deck. Super stable, track stands are almost effortless. pulling people/150lb+ loads on inclines is a drag, I may get a stokemonkey when they are available.
