I really want a Big Dummy, but there is no way I can afford $2K+ for a bike (my wife would KILL me!). I figure the next best route is to 'upgrade' my Trek 750 Multitrack (mid 90's frame) with an Xtracycle Free Radical.
No I have a couple of questions for those of you who have put these on your bikes.
Is there anything extra that you have to get so the bike is ridable? I'm looking at a FreeRadical + Family Van kit. On-line from Xtracycle, it's supposed to cost $574 plus shipping. I figure another $100 for instillation....
Am I missing something? I just graduated from Nursing School, and really can't afford to have something stupid pop up and cost me an extra $100.
Now the Trek 750 is steel and has 700c wheels. Is that a problem? The Xtracycle website mentioned a 700c conversion kit (I take it that the kit is designed for 26" wheels?), but I have been unable to find this kit..... What am I missing?
