I showed this image to a friend of mine (she raced MTB for 10 years, numerous championships, now works in the industry). Lately her thing of note, which I am delighted to be a victim of, is perfecting vintage cocktail mixes. Mixes that were invented in the late 19th or early 20th centuries (worldwide), finding the unique liquors, and doing it proper. This sparked a great idea to modify her Xtracycle into something... fun. :twisted:


by curiosity, is your friend from Quebec and named Melanie ?? ;)


You know something? This is a really small world.
But no, her name is not Melanie.

But, oddly enough, I might have been hearing about Melanie through a few other friends (who don't ride, but we're friends through other circles) who have mentioned a certain Québécois that they wanted me to meet who actually matches the description of former champion from Canada now living in LA... but this has been brought up for a while, and it never happened... yet. Hmmmm... Small world indeed!

What's wrong with it? It's probably for a tall guy with bad flexibility..

I love the plastic thing behind the cassette. I put these things on all my wheels :mrgreen:

Even if the rider is not that flexible; having negative drop doesn't help with back problems! :smartass:

You're right, it's actually quite vanilla. But it's freakin' huuuge, emphasis on freak. I could use the frame as a scaffold to build a tree fort for the neighborhood children. The whole package simply dwarfs the components. What appears to be a standard crankset looks more like 50t. I also dislike the way the Roubaix's headtube seems to grow exponentially with the frame size. Seriously, the guy must be all legs... literally.
