Thank you for advices. I finished the build just to see how it's works, but I don't have all the pieces.
I mounting 2 racks, and I have some dificulties to put them on the same level, but I made it.
The bike is moving great, it's very fast and stable. When I make U-turns it's a little tricky, I loose my balance, but only whit load.
I climb some hills whit almost 30kg of load and it's was very easy. Amazing but true.
After that I discover a little problem. When I shifting on the smallest chainring and the bigesst sprocket, the chain is touching the tyre. My tyre aren't so big, only 559-50. I dont have vertical dropouts, so I could move the wheel a little to the left, but this is gona affect the drive.
Another solution is to move the whole rear triangle to the left. I don't wanna put another tyre. What can I do?
That frame is very good, I like the integrated rack. I wolud like to have one. Maybe I will weld my rack to the frame.
Can you help me whit my problem?

So I have a question, I just got a suspension bike to build with though it looks like the BB is not attached to the rear triangle its part of the main frame and thus only the pivot has the hole to mount the axle. Am I going to run into some issues building it with this setup? Any advice on some things I can do to make this workable? Or should I just look for another suspension frame?
Don't worry about that. I also use the holes for pivot to attach the rear triangle.
It's work just fine, no problem until now.
Show us a picture. This is mine.
Im thinking of maybe cutting off the BB and welding it on... Not sure if that will work well or not...
Nice looking bikes by the way, as always. I just re routed the gear cable for the dogbike and got rid of some of the housing. Much more crisp shifting now.

This is the frame... My dream will come true...
Here is my recently converted long bike. As you can see, I used a rear triangle from a FS bike. It's bolted to the dropouts using the BB and some spacers. I'm using the middle derailleur as a chain tensioner. I still need to cut down the bar I'm using for a footrest, but it works for now. My kids love it!

Thank you guys for your help and pictures. I build The First Xtracycle from Romania!
