    How many X's

    Hello All,
    I was wondering how may folks on BF have/ride/own Xtracycles?
    I know that I am not the only one.

    Two Xtracycles and a new Big Dummy (as of yesterday). It was sort of serendipitous how I ended up with two Xtracycles....

    A guy I ride with occasionally mentioned that he had one of the electric kits and had used it on his mountain bike for a while, he commuted just over 30 miles round trip and said the range was pretty much limited to 25 miles. Since it has a bit of drag if the battery dies, he didn't like it and gave me a great deal on it... So basically I got the whole kit (electric brushless hub, controller, wiring, batteries and charger) for $130.00. I figured at that price I couldn't really go wrong... i could resell it at that price fairly easily... it is really nice for hauling things up the giant hill I live on top of... if I lived in a flat area it would not be as cool. It is handy for carrying rally heavy loads where the X would really flex when I had to stand up and pedal... I have the hub in a spare rim, so I can swap back to regular X mode pretty quick if I am going to go on the train or something....

    On a far less utilitarian note it is really fun to screw with people though, pedal up next to them, then speed away without peddling.... or ride up the short steep hill next to my house and pass lycra clad roadies wearing jeans and a Hawaiian shirt.

    I got a dummy and my girlfriend just took over my other dummy frame when we went touring this summer on them. Love them.
