I currently use a trailer and/or panniers for my hauling needs but now I really want to build an XtraCycle. I am going back and forth between a few different options. First off, I am pretty sure, seeing past comments, that I want a 26" bike. However, I really like Cannondale's Bad Boy (Disc maybe) and wish they hadn't stopped making a 26" version after 2005. I also like Fisher's Cronus.
I typically ride more aggressive road bikes, so I am looking for something more sporty. I also am unsure, if I get a mountain bike, if I would want front suspension at all. Something with a lockout would be nice if I did get a front suspension bike.
I work at a bike shop and we carry Giant, Cannondale, and Fisher. I don't really like any of Giant's bikes for this purpose. It seems like I like the Cronus. What do you more experienced people think?
