Foundation for the Xtracycle family "S.U.B." Project

This lightly used and solid Fuji S12S mixte will be converted into an extended-frame "sport utility bike" by the time baby arrives in December; for wife and daughter and groceries to be hauled on.


A Craigslist find in Half Moon Bay, CA, this is the one I've been looking for for several weeks now. Now that the search for the frame is over, I can start sourcing parts for the conversion. (Partial list)


- Xtracycle Free Radical Kit and accessories

- Upgrade to touring grade 700c diameter wheels and tires up to 38c wide

- Possible rear disc brake / possible cantilever rear brake

- Upgrade to modern dual pivot front brake

- Upright moustache or Albatross style handlebar

- Conversion to modern touring or ATB drivetrain, ideally shifted through bar-ends

- Sprung Brooks saddle
