Gathering together bike trailer videos, I’ve noticed that Xtracycle users have by far been the most prolific with posting their videos.
This seems to be evidence of the inspirational and fun nature of the Xtracycle. When you get on one you just want to party. The inventions that the Xtracycle has inspired include a bike mounted blender system, a neon lighting system sold through the Fossil Fool, music systems that mount onto the Xtracycle’s Snap Deck and much more.
Here are a couple of videos of the good time to be had with an Xtracycle.

When a driver becomes angry or aggressive during your commute you may feel the need to react in some way, but keep in mind that this is often what they are hoping for. Just like the bully on the playground, they will only pick on people that react in some way. The best thing to […]
There are two ways to generalize how bike cargo trailers are used:
- Ride to work, pick up groceries and pick up anything else you can think off and haul it around town.
- Go on an epic voyage.
While all bike touring voyages are not equal they all seem epic as they are being prepared for and undertaken.
Here are some inspiring videos of tours that can truly be called epic.
