Xtracycle EdgeRunners always IN STOCK!
Xtracycle is THE top family long tail cargo bike platform on the market.
Why? Here’s our opinion:
First: You can carry kids. Xtracycle is committed to kid-carrying. Committed is a key word here. While the legal department at a few other long-tail manufacturers has put the kabosh on kid-carrying – that’s right, you’re outright told NOT to carry kids. Not only does Xtracycle not have such labels but they are selling and marketing kid-carrying attachments for their platform. Add stoker bars, add kid seats, add foot rests; in other words: add kids. With so many other companies NOT doing this it must take a real committment from the companies that do in order to deal with the legal/liability issues involved.
Second: Quality. Mechanics love Xtracycle accessories. The accessory options are modular and easy to install. We think they have the best quality kid attachments available. The kid seat is none other than a Yepp-made, best in class kid carrier. The Pea Pod is sturdy and well-designed. Expensive but worth every penny. Who doesn’t think the wood-grained running boards or footsies are the bomb! There’s just something about wood accessories that make a bike instantly cool. By golly, it’s the bike equivalent to the wood-paneled station wagon of the 1960′s.
Third: Versatility. Perhaps you’re not carrying kids and just want to haul lots of stuff. They’ve got that covered too. Add the Wide Loader, Long Loader, and a KickBack kickstand and you’re ready to haul anything your massive quads can move.
Fourth: They continue to innovate. Rather than continue to sell just their original product, Xtracycle continues to respond to customer needs and push boundaries with new products.
Ah, But the Real Reason is…
Yup, all the cool techy and practical, functional stuff makes the Xtracycle a fave. But, really, the reason we love it is the way we’ve seen it transform lives. True, many bikes, especially cargo bikes, do that. Xtracycle does it with some amazing ease.
The learning curve for riders is very short. That means we’ve seen immediate changes in the kids and adults riding Xtracycle bikes. The bikes are just plain fun, so stories of kids begging to get on the bike, and parents parking their cars, are common. The limitations of an Xtracycle are few, so the range of uses is only limited by imagination.
