America’s answer to dutch cargo bikes – the Xtracycle! The Xtracycle is a longtail conversion that takes your road or mountain bicycle and converts it into an SUB (that’s “Suburban Utility Bike”!) cargo bike. By extending the wheelbase, the Xtracycle conversion allows you to carry up to 200 lbs. of cargo, groceries, a surfboard, a child, a friend, or whatever. These bikes keep the look and ride of a traditional bike, but allow you skip the car, run that quick errand, or take home that special find without using a 3,000 lbs., gas-guzzling, 4-wheeled monster sitting in your driveway.

Flying Pigeon offers three ways to get your cargo-hauling on with an Xtracycle:

  • We are a distributor for all their kits and accessories. Just let us know what kind of system you want to build and we can have the kit shipped to the shop for pickup.
  • If you’re not up for taking on the conversion yourself, we’ll take your bike, tune it up, and do the full conversion for you. For $600 you’ll get back a full cargo bike with the FreeRadical and LongTail kits installed. Or design a custom setup with any of the accessories.
  • Don’t have a bike you want to convert? We’ll locate and adapt a bike to suit your needs.

We currently have one complete ready-to-ride bike in stock (pictured above). Built on a 26” wheel, all cromoly mountain bike, with a 16” frame to fit most riders. $794 gets you a brand new Xtracycle cargo bike, fully overhauled, professionally assembled, and ready to go.
