I love it as much as I knew I would. My Xtracycle arrived on Sunday afternoon to the bus depot and my husband put it together shortly after it arrived. Now he’s convinced he needs one for his around town bike too. This was Sunday:
Putting it together…
What timing! Falling asleep right before I can try it out. Thankfully my loving husband went from putting the Xtracycle together to holding my sleeping son! Voila!
Bye girls! (don’t mind my too low seat)
Okay, Okay… hop on!
We rode later on Sunday night around town. I can’t get over how smooth and stable it is. I love not feeling like I’m towing. My legs are working a bit harder on the hills but it’s barely noticeable.
Tonight we rode down to the grocery store and bought a weeks worth of groceries and loaded her up. We live uphill from the grocery store so I knew I was in for some work. I was surprised at how even 80lbs of groceries and kid wasn’t hard. My legs were a bit tired on the steeper hills but I could barely tell there was extra weight.
This is me as soon as we got into the yard. Don’t mind the sweat- it’s about 29’C here tonight! (Yes, that’s my birth pool on the trampoline. What better place for it?)
Check out the load. I was semi careful about packing it right in the saddlebags thinking I needed to be smart about the space but it turns out I had more than I needed. There is remarkable storage capabilities on this thing! I’m so so pleased with my purchase.
