    Just a heads up for you, if you got the kit as a pre-built wheel from Wilderness Energy, Be sure to check the spoke tension. I've handled a couple of these, one I installed on my wife's bike, and both wheels were poorly built. Other than that, apart from some issues with moisture affecting the controller, it works fine.
    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    Thanks Dan. My wheel was true but dished to one side. We managed some work arounds and it is fine. The installation instructions describing the differences between BL & BD are incorrect. I am in the process of finding out if I indeed have a BL or BD. Will give final report.

    Off again on the Xtracycle with the family. We are using it as an alternative family transport vehicle.

    Here are some pictures from our July 1, Canada Day outing. We take the Xtracycle for night and day rides.

    Shell Trail Road entering by Granville Ave. This trail borders farm land and an abandoned railway track. It was lovely peddling down this tree lined trail. Almost an Alice in Wonderland feeling.






    New community park at the corner of Granville Ave. and Garden City. Lots of new toys and a well planned recreational facility for the new density in this part of town. Note the recovered driftwood climbing structure.




    A playground adjacent to a school along Shell Road after emerging from the trail.




    Color pics of Shell Trail Road.




    Warning signs to not tresspass or steal from farm lands.




    Our urban picnic outside Burger King.




    She looks like she's enjoying the day.




    South **** Road - the southernmost road in Richmond.




    That's all for now.

    Just joined the Xtracycle club myself and found your thread!

    Great stuff! I know this was all six years ago. How is your Xtracycle doing? I noticed you complained about the tongue, which I know has long since been addressed on new editions.

    here is mine:

    Hi Ty,

    Wow! That is a thread from a long time ago. I have since left the city and moved to the rural country in the mountains living amidst wild deer, bears, moose, wolves and lynx. When I left the city, I sold the whole stable of bicycles I had keeping only my fixed gear.

    The tongue was loose on the Xtracycle. They were the best what they were: a conversion kit for mountain bikes. Since then, cargo bikes have come of their own and there are lots of cargo bikes to choose from - all of them good actually.

    Cheers,
    V
