Interbike 2012 Dispatch: Xtracycle redesigns kit, adds complete bike

Xtracycle has made the leap into complete bikes with the new Edgerunner model. Designed to fit all the traditional Xtracycle accessories, it can carry as heavy a load as its rider can propel. The 26-inch front wheel is paired with a 20-inch rear wheel, for extra strength and to keep the load as low as possible. Prices will start at $2,000. There’s an electric-assist option, pictured below, and even an optional sidecar, pictured above.

Also new are completely redesigned versions of the traditional, bolt-on Xtracycle, now known as Leap and available in both 26-inch and 29er versions. The base unit will cost $150, or $300 with bags.

There is even a folding bike, made in partnership with Tern, that sells for $999.

The line of accessories continues to expand, with a new child-carrying support called Hooptie that gives kids a place to hold on to, and will keep them safely supported inside the cargo area. You can see it on the blue bike below.

Also new are more robust saddlebags that are waterproof and reconfigurable to carry just about any type of cargo.
