Thinking about an XTRACYCLE?

Get one! You won't regret it, not for a minute. Xtracycle, Inc., has a spankin' new website, good for the checking out. Also, they sent a plea, so to speak, to "not hold back" on Xtra-pruchases:

A Humble Request

We here at Xtracycle are proud of all the changes we've seen in the last year - for our company, our community, our country. But sometimes that pride gets in the way of being true to the fact that we are still a company that has employees, an office, and a warehouse full of stuff (even a forklift!) - and all of these wonderful things cost money.

The recent economic slowdown has affected our distributors, our retailers, and in the last few months we've felt it as well. We are proud, but we should be honest too. We need your support. We need your business, and we need it now. We are committed to make it through tough times stronger, more resilient, and focused on the goal of building bikes that change lives. And we also have to pay the bills. Purchasing Xtracycle products, right now, will keep all of us healthy and strong.

Help us sell 100 Xtracycles by the end of may - we all know someone who will benefit from becoming an Xtracycle owner. We'll keep you posted on our progress each day - check our blog for updates. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you.

Xtracycle - The Original Longtail Company

If your family has more than one car, ditch one in favor of a cargo bike. It will pay off twice over by the end of the year, and you'll be happier and healthier to boot. Like Han Solo says,

Trust me.
