Q for xtracycle owners.
I am thinking/planning about building a xtracycle compatible bike. Looking over the open standard info, I have a question:
How often does one remove the V-racks? I'm thinking of building them into the structure. Seems to me this would eliminate the any need for whatchamacollars, concerns about sealing out water, galvanic corrosion etc.
It looks the long-loader deal would need to be different to attach to a permanent V rack. Other than that it seems to me it work fine.
What say you with the wisdom of experience about this thinking?
