xtracycle parts specs
Since the xtra is supposed to be a snap-in-and-out, modular and interchangeable rack system, I'm wondering if there are published specs available so that others can make compatible bits.
I'm curious about tubing specs of the original V and H racks. I'm also wondering about the actual dimensions of those parts (how tall the V racks are when installed and how wide the H racks are, etc).
Another question I have that I'm having trouble answering via google image search is whether the snapdeck is tapered. The rear upright ports and the front upright ports are spaced differently. When the V racks are installed, do their top tubes run parallel (and then the rear down tubes taper in), or do the top tubes when viewed from above taper inward as they go back?
Does anyone out there with original xtracycle parts have the time/inclination to take some detailed measurements and photos for all of us diy'ers? I'm brainstorming some custom rack ideas, but I want to maintain compatibility with other xtracycle parts that I'll buy.
