Xtracycle Edgerunner

The Xtracycle Edgerunner Longtail Cargo Bike is the result of over 10 years experience in manufacturing the Orginal Longtail Kit - the Xtracycle Freeradical. Careful design has created a Cargo Bike that is fun to ride, Practical, adaptable AND safe. We rate the Edgerunner highly and beleive it rides and performs better than the Surly Big Dummy - it's only closest rival in our opinion.

The two BIG plusses for the Xtracycle Edgerunner are it's small 20" rear wheel (the front is 26"). A small rear wheel means that the load on the back has the lowest centre of gravity possible - a low centre of gravity makes for a more stable load AND ride. This is something the Surly Big Dummy cannot claim - one nil to the Xtracycle Edgerunner! The other major plus is that the Edgerunner taps into the existing range of Xtracycle modular parts and accessories plus some new ones. Hooptie, Stirrups, Magic Carpet, Footisies and Running Boards all accommodate passengers from babies upwards to adults (yes literally!). Whilst Longloaders, Wideloaders and even the Xtracycle Sidecar can all accommodate heavy and bulky cargo loads.

The Xtracycle Edgerunner frame is made from steel - this gives it a stiffness but means that the ride has just enough give to make it supremely comfortable.

The Edgerunner certainly has set the benchmark for Longtail Cargo Bikes, we think it will be some time before it is surpassed.

We have an Xtracycle Edgerunner demo bike here at Practical Cycles.

The Xtracycle Edgerunner comes in two sizes - a 16.5" or 19" seat tube and two specifications - the entry level 24d and the upgarded 27d.

Electric versions are available with Bosch or Bionx electric motors, please enquire about availability.
