    My Trek 7.1FX is my utility cycle. The trailer is only a $70 one but it works fine. This bike is my do everything bike.

    Enjoying a spring commute.

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Sweet ride Cynikal can you tell us about the build? Are you going to splash some color on that frame?

    Heyas all - I've lurked for a while and this is my first post. Just wanted to say that this thread played a huge part in me getting back into cycling, particularly using the new bike as a grocery getter and errand runner as a way to keep at it. I know that it isn't an Xtra with a trailer or anything, but once I popped a rack and a basket on it, it was perfect for trips to the grocery store on weekends.

    Here are a couple of mine.

    This is a 1956 Robinhood, English 3-speeds. The frame, rear hub, stem/handlebar, shifter/cable are original.


    This one is a old Fuji Tour SE. I converted it to a fixie and added racks and baskets.

    just built up this xtracycle on a 2011 Long Haul Trucker. Bags to come later today; 700x35C Panaracer Pasela TG tire in the rear leavse only about 1/2 cm clearance - this is about my only disappointment. Schwalbe Fat Frank 29x2.0 in the front. I totally get the "flex" everyone talks about in the lateral direction although it's totally manageable. Very impressed how this feels exactly like a normal bike except low speed turning which isn't that much different.

    Yepp Maxi easyfit child seat attached to seatpost - I purchased this before the xtracycle and if i could do it over again I'd get the version that attaches to a rear rack / xtracycle. that way i could mount it to the rear of the flight deck and then be able to carry an adult on the front of the deck.
