    Measurements of the xtracycle mounts?

    Hi! I'm planning on making something like the xtracycle for a bike (or maybe even a permanent conversion like the big dummy) but I would like to have the measurements for the mounts of the original. It would be nice to know that other stuff than my own would fit, just in case. Does someone here know the measurements for the mounting tubes? I guess I would need to know the inside diameter, depth (how deep the accessories are fitted, approximately), and distance between the tubes (both lengthwise and across).

    If you have an Xtracycle, or a friend with one, please make use of your tape measure and caliper!

    Being a tightwad, I created my own using the rear triangle and bb. from a dual susp w/mart bike. It went together real simple and I got the donor bike for free. I can e-mail you a pic if you like just p.m me.

    Well, there's no problem with the construction itself. First I was just going to make one of these to suit my needs, and do it the way I wanted from scratch. But when I thought about it, it would make sense to do it so that other stuff that's already out there would fit. It's no harder making the mounts 800 mm apart instead of 750 if it's so. It would be nice to have the measurements so I can see if they at all fit what I want to do at least. I don't think I care about doing a detachable rack with that board on top for example, I'll do that integrated in one piece.
