Xtracycle forum?

What is the name of the forum the Xtracycle users join. I know they have one dedicated to just the Xtracycle, but I can't remember what it's called. Seems like it's a Yahoo group?

This ain't too far off the mark.
I'd say since the BD hit the market, a good 70% of the threads here have been Xtra-related.

There is also a forum on the Xtracycle site, but it isn't very active although you can troll the old posts for some good info: http://www.xtracycle.com/forums/

Perhaps there should be a subforum here for Xtracycle and Big Dummy related threads?

Doncha mean a subforum to cover utility cycling that is not Xtracycle or Big Dummy related? Hard to believe so many electrons are devoted on this forum to such a tiny slice of the cycling products useful for utility cycling.

I don't really see why we need to sub-divide utility cycling any further. The Big Dummy/Xtracycle threads don't preclude the discussion of other cargo bikes or trailers.

I posted a question a few days ago asking who had a Kona Ute...so far zero replies from any owners.

The content of these forums simply reflects the interests of the people that are participating.
