Xtracycle

I added new handlebars, cork grips, bike-plate and reflectors to my Xtracycle. Pictures were taken under the Fuller Warren bridge (I 95) on the stage used by the Riverside Arts Market. New brakes, brake levers, cables, headlight and pedals were added with the new handlebars. The old handlebars that served me since day-one (May 2008) were installed in the rear and now sport reflector tape. The OYB seven-way bag sits better on these flat bars. Finally, a custom bike-plate endorses my (now dormant) involvement with Bikejax.org.

This is a major facelift to this bicycle that took me on a long journey. I learnt a lot on this journey … about people, places but mostly about myself. This xtracycle in particular and bicycles in general are in the top of the list of the best things to have happened to me yet.
