Surly Disc Trucker and Xtracycle?

Hi Forum

Looking to see if anyone has had experience w adding an xtracycle add on to a disc Trucker.

I love my touring bike and wouldn't like to convert it to a safe way to transport my kids rather than buying a new bike and letting this one collect dust.

I've seen the free radical mentioned in a few places, but not specifically with the Disc Trucker.

This was suggested to me recently, so I am interested to hear the responses also.

I did want to let you know that according to Xtracycle the Leap will be available for purchase on Feb 14. The leap is the "update" of the freeradical design. It looks very interesting to me, as it is supposed to be much more stiff and can run a much larger variety of wheels/tires.

People have been waiting for the "Leap" awhile now. It will extend the range of bikes that can be converted into a cargo longtail - for utility transport.
