The FreeRadical base frame transforms your bicycle into an Xtracycle LongTail. All that's left to do is pick the accessory kit that best fits your needs! Already have a bike, or at least have one in mind? The FreeRadical adopts the qualities of any bike you put it on – mountain, townie, cruiser, or touring – and makes it LT-ready. It works by adding 15 inches to your bike's wheelbase. A longer wheelbase means a smoother ride and superior handling whether you're toting large loads, groceries, or passengers. And like every other LT product, the longer frame provides an open canvas for customization and reinvention to suit your riding needs. After all, what's the point of struggling to carry stuff on your old bike, when the FreeRadical can open a new world of possibilities? With all the extra space, the sky's the limit in terms of accessory kits --- the Longtail Kit, the Family Van Kit, the Adventure Kit, the Carry It All Kit or the Cargo Van Kit. Or choose an individual accessory --- Footsies, a Kickback or a Peapod! And like every other LT product, we've made the conversion easy by ensuring the FreeRadical works with most any frame or style of bike. So, why not use the FreeRadical to creatively reinvent an existing one?
