Xtrafied Street

I found these photos of an older RANS Street [note the straight down tube] on BROL. The resulting rig looks great. It's a smart combination of comfort, stability and cargo hauling capacity.

BROL member Zyzzyx is in the processing of buying a new Street + Xtracycle kit. I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the finished product and getting his review on how it rides.

Hey hey... I resemble that remark. ;) And yeah, I'm looking forward to it as well. Got the Xtracycle kit last week, waiting on the Street now. Hoping to have it for the weekend, but no great loss if I wait a bit more.

Oh, and I've got that second photo printed and on my cube wall at work, next to the pictures of velomobiles and lowracers.

After a few years of primarily riding a rather short wheelbase Lightning Phantom recumbent, I most curious about how the Xtra-long wheelbase is going to handle. But I expect there will be plenty of smiles, and that's what counts.
