If you are seeking more info, just do search on Xtracycle and you'll have enough reading material to keep you busy for days. Would you like some local input or information? Check in with the gang over at Lakeshore Schwinn. I know a few of the guys and gals commute on the longbike daily.
Now that you know what an Xtracycle is. Do you want to build out your own longbike? It's pretty easy if you have basic mechanical skills. Here is a nice time lapse video of a Big Dummy going together.
If the above video was a little too fast for you catch all the details required to set up your own longbike. BikeCommuter.com's Jack "Ghost Rider" Sweeny has a very nice 2 part "how to" for the build of his Xtracycle. Part 1 & Part 2
How is Jack putting his Xtracycle to use down in Tampa? One of the many ways is to clean up his neighborhood.
Want your own free radical kit? Looking at the Xtracycle dealer list, I found no listed dealers for Jacksonville. I called Xtracycle and was told by the very friendly staff that any local bike shop can place an order from them.
