I wanted to order my Extracycle from my LBS. I explained to them what I wanted to do and what I wanted. They said they didn't really know what I was talking about.
I let them know that if they could purchase it from Extracycle and make a few bucks off me that was fine with me. I'm trying to support these yahooooos. Said they would check into it and give me a call back... never happened... Next time I went into the shop I got the song and dance about how they couldn't find the website and such... forget it!
In the past I purchased a Burley Nomad from the bike trailer shop and was treated great so..... back to them again. Living in a place with one bike shop and a bad one at that doesn't leave me much choice.
Anyways... After that fiasco I got ahold of the bike trailer shop and got my new Extracycle kit ordered!! I'm damn excited about getting this thing put together and up and running. I ordered the 700C kit. I like big wheels.
So after the $399 for the kit with freeloaders... wideloaders another $80 and the disc setup $60ish.... my debit card feels the pain but............................... I think it is going to be money well spent.
I've never even seen an Extracycle in person where I live much less another daily commuter.. Live on an island with view of the puget sound all around and nope..... not a soul commutes or even tries to live a somewhat car free lifestyle from what I can see.
Anyways..... I've read a ton of posts on here about all your conversions and love what I see and read on this site. Love the skateboard idea!!
This kit will be going on my 04 ish.. Specialized Sirrus Disc. I chose this for the hybrid bars and disc brakes from when I'm loading the crap out of it. Between the Extracycle and a fully loaded Burley Nomad it should be quite something in a good way.
Anyways... If there is another Whidbey Islander with an Extracycle.... Let me know..
