Heres my latest ongoing build which is now rolling but still in need of some finishing touches..
I realised I wasnt to enthralled with dragging two ankle biters along in trailer and need something that would do the job a little better. The Big Dummy seemed to fit the bill nicely, the xtracycle format would allow me to mount two child seats to the rear deck with a bit of fettleing.
The bike should be suitable for a little off road whether with the nippers on board or not. I orginally built it up with Maxxis High Rollers (2.7 front, 2.5 rear) on the Mavics but the drag on tarmac was huge so I have chucked on a set of Twin Rails which should roll significantly better but dont look quite as good.
The rear deck wants a little refinement and a double stand is essential as its a real pig to push/manouver when the kids are on board although once you chuck a leg over and start riding you cannot really tell the extra weight is there.
