Xtracycle Build : Getting Home

This series is held over at CommuteByBike.com visit the site to read the rest of this article.

Arleigh is building, documenting and writing out her build up of a Salsa Ala Carte mountain bike with 650b wheels and a Xtracycle Free Radical Kit.  This is an on going series so stay tuned for more installments.

Late this past week I took delivery of an Xtracycle Free Radical Kit at the shop.  The Xtracycle is of the 700c variety (they come in 26″ or 700c) that will be installed to my Salsa Ala Carte with 650b wheels.  The 650b wheels is why we decided to go with the 700c Free Rad Kit.  There should be enough room on the 26″ version but I’m normally running a 41.5mm tire and also would like to run Quasi Moto 2.0″ tires for light off road touring.
