It is no secret that we love xtracycle, and now we are direct dealers of their fine products!  I (Steve) have been using mine for almost a year now, and I can honestly say that it is the only bike of mine that, if stolen or broken, would have to be replaced – and immediately.  It has become indispensable to me, and I can pay xtracycle no higher complement than that.

We built up this beautiful MASI Soulville to a FreeRadical to be our display bike.  That means it will be here for you to test ride, every day.

Unless we are using it to run recycling, but of course that just takes a few minutes…

The power plant is a Sturmey Archer 8 speed internal with a disc brake (203mm rotor!!) that we built up just for this project.  Solid, quiet, shiny, dependable, beautiful!

To account for the internal hub set up and the extralong Soulville chainstays we had to make our own attachment plates, out of old crankarms!  They are as stout as they should be for heavy load hauling, and their bends nestle nicely between the stays to keep everything snug.

Come on down if you would like to check it out or just to talk longtail bikes, don’t let this revolution pass you by!
