Guide to carrying a spare bike with your Xtracycle

Hey guys, just whipped this up in my garage and have to say it works great! There was some initial slipping, but carbon friction paste and a little more torque fixed that right up. The bits I used were from a Yakima car rack and bolted neatly onto the rear bar of my Xtracycle with the use of a small spacer. It doesn't interfere with installing wideloaders and comes on and off in seconds. Hopefully this will inspire other people to do the same!

Nice idea. I have been toying with the idea of mounting a front hub to the rear of my bike for this purpose, but couldn't come up with a way to keep it from rotating under.
