The Two-seater for the Xtracycle

 The Tandem is not a good wet weather ride for us.  I’m still awaiting my very awesome Xtracycle.  I’m still also looking for a commuter bike to attach it to.  And trying to figure out where everyone will sit.  But I think I have a terrific solution:   Rob Hanson of Maryland is building me a two-seater to fit on the snap board of the xtracycle!  Hopefully, it will look something like this:  Verrrrrry coooooll!

    It is SOOOOO cool, (well, and really goofy, but I’m a parent, and goofy is really good, too:)) That paint job is phenomenal, but I think I will have something more low-key, black and red to match bags. The girls will look lovely in anything. Thanks for reading, and I’m loving this project.

    I’m happy to hear of other Xtracycle owners using theirs for hauling two kids. Like Rob and many others, I’ve equipped my Big Dummy with a wooden double kid seat (handmade by my wife’s Uncle) to cart my two boys (4 and 2) around the Capitol Hill neighborhood in DC. It may be hard at first–the additional weight of the children added to a heavy wooden seat make for a heavy bike. However, you will get stronger. Your kids will have a blast, too.

    Best of luck on your everyday adventure!

  5. Rob just sent us your link! I’m so glad that you found him via our blog and I hope that your seat works well. We really love ours, though we have yet to actually use it for two (the upcoming occupant of the second seat is only 2 months old right now, so he’s needs to grow some before he tries it out…)
