Xtracycle FreeRadical Hitchless Trailer



Imagine your favorite bike with the rear wheel stretched out behind the seat, a big, stable platform for a load or a passenger, and elegant saddlebags (we call them FreeLoaders -- click the link to see what makes them so functional) on either side that are expandable when you need them and are cleanly out of the way when you don't. Best of all, your bike is still lightweight and fast, and because the load is centered between your two wheels, the whole package handles with ease. Suddenly you have much less need or desire to drive around town for your errands. Picture this: a breezy unloaded ride to your favorite grocery store, coasting reliably around corners; arriving ahead of traffic; parking at the rack directly in front of the entrance; shopping and easily loading your four bags of groceries; then pedaling home, care-free on a bike that handles just as swiftly now that it's loaded. And grinning when you realize you just turned an errand into a fun, invigorating excursion.

I saw one of these the other days on the way home and was intrigued by the potential for more use of the bike on larger grocery runs without hooking up the Burley trailer. Now, if I can just figure out how to get my son on it for the ride to daycare...

I think that this kit is one of the most brilliant bicycle related inventions ever. Most of the instances in which I simply cannot bike and must drive would be solved by this device. This is definitely on the short list for me for the next year. I wonder if it could carry my guitar amps...

I'm getting one this summer for 4th of July parade (this is the excuse I'm using). I can't wait!
