By Nathaniel Allen TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 13, 2011
Note that this product is just the accessory kit for the Free Radical frame (or for a Big Dummy bike). If you're converting a bicycle to a longtail, you'll also need the Free Radical frame. This kit is the most popular pieces that make the Free Radical functional.

My review is for the whole Free Radical longtail conversion.

I've been rocking the Xtracycle since December of '09, purchased directly from the company when they were still in Oakland. I installed my kit on an OS Blackbuck 29"er by local legend Mark Slate. I run with a 29" wheel up front, at fat 26" in the rear, rigid fork, and a Cosco Scenera Car Seat custom-mounted to Xtracycle's pre-drilled Ecodeck. Brakes are Avid BB7 with a 203mm rotor up front and a 180 in back. I've run it using both a Nuvinci CVP Rear Hub as well as a Rohloff Speedhub.

Frame choice is the critical decision. This conversion wasn't intended to be run on a 29-inch mountain bike, which I was aware of, so I elected to move forward by cutting custom mounting brackets from plate steel from my local hardware store. But that unnecessary for most 26" mountain bike and 700C road frames. Also, aluminum frames are recommended due to their relative lack of flex compared to the steel frame I chose. The flex presents itself in an initially disconcerting side-to-side sway.
