    Love the Xtracycle, too. Reminds me of the Surly Big Dummy.
    Thank you.The Bleriot is soon to be a town/country bike (getting rid of the drop bars)
    The Big Dummy was Surly's answer to Xtracyles' open-source design of their product.. Surly built it to take the Freeradical frame and Freeloader panniers, did a great job too.
    Check out El Cargonista's Flickr Pictures of his big Dummy "The Goat" it's a work of Goat loving art!
    I built up the Xtracycle myself from an old Schwinn mountain bike frame. It has it's idiosyncrasies (notably the rider ) but it's great for hauling.
    I've got most of the kit loaded on it now (I cheated, cut a hole in the bottom of my tent bag and stuffed the whole kit and caboodle into it like an oversize Bishop. not tight nor pretty, but it will get me out this afternoon) now to dress warm, grab some food and head out!
    Jerry, why oh why did you sell the X? and yes I'm a Grant Peterson fan having an XO-1 and a Waterford Heron Touring in the stable too!
    Time to ride.

    I have made the move to low-trail with a porteur rack and/or front panniers. For a really huge load I still have my BOB trailer.

    I couldn't bear to see the X just sitting around so now it has a new life in Spokane, WA. That also allowed me to have my mountain bike back, which was the donor. A Big Dummy could be in my future. Time will tell.

    Enjoy your outdoor time!
