Xtracycle is getting a facelift!

I’ve realized that the Paramount is still too short from the seat to handlebars. I’ve tried everything to lengthen it but it’s still not enough. So, I started the transformation/mating of the Karate Monkey to the Xtracycle. Ran into a couple of snags. Nothing a few small parts won’t remedy.

Why the Karate Monkey? Because I am very comfortable on it for longer rides. And I don’t use it enough to warrant it just hanging around. I do use the Xtra at minimum of once a week, and plan on more usage. So, comfy bike plus the Xtra sounds like a dream come true!

So, the Pugs is my pootling ( Rob, I hope I used that word right, I like it) bike and the KM/Xtra is my cargo/garbagacycle/traveling bike. I still have my Fuel full suspension MTB, if I ever get out to the trails!
