I've often thought about making an Xtracycle out of my Mixte that you see in my signature line. But, it is set up from the factory for 27" wheels, and converting it over to a good stout set of 26ers would be a problem the way the front fork is made. I could change out front forks, and so on, but for now it's just a project for the future. (translation no cash to work with at this time)...
Quick P.S. ... If I ever do build an Xtracycle even if it's not my Mixte, I will still use a step through frame, just for the extra versatility it offers. I'm a male, but screw the whole step through frames are for women stuff. With a heavy load on the bike, it's just too handy to be able to step through that frame.
