FreeRadical

FreeRadical
$489.00

Turn your bicycle into an S.U.B.

The FreeRadical is the coolest, lightest, most maneuverable, easiest-to-use way of adding serious cargo capacity to your bicycle.

We’ve been riding the Xtracycle for over 5 years, and we use it to drop off packages to the FEDEX depot in Berkeley when you place an order. It’s super quick to load, fast and nimble to ride, and it’s always there when you need a place to carry groceries, sports equipment, picnic supplies, musical equipment, and your friends.

The FreeRadical kit comes from Xtracycle, a Socially Responsible business in California. It helps you lead a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle, without sacrificing your own sense of fun and style.

Sport Utility Bike loaded with fresh veggies

 

Installation takes about 2-3 hours, but is a one-time deal. You have to be comfortable dealing with cables and cable housing. A good test is whether you’ve installed a rear derailleur or a pair of brakes before. If you haven’t, it’s better to take your Xtracycle-ready bike and the FreeRadical to a trusted mechanic.

Two Reflective Cam Straps

Two Reflective Cam Straps

Cam straps stacked

Bungies have their place, but for serious cargo hauling cams straps are indispensable – we use these regularly to deliver 70+ lb  boxes to our shipping carrier.

The harder you pull, the harder the steel buckle bites into the strap. You can tension it as little or as much as you want, giving you the peace of mind that  your load isn’t going to shift unpredicatably. It holds tension with amazing strength. Check out the “don’t try this in your home forest” moment below!

Cam straps are awesome problem solvers.

When using a cam strap, try to find the Shortest Path around the object you’re securing. A diagonal path may shift or spin your load or loosen along the way. See below.

Cam straps are great for gusto. Note one in action below as crew member Pastana ropes a stray goat at our 2010 Earth Day concert at USF.

In order to use these straps most effectively, you need to keep them coiled neatly, ready for use, not jumbled up in your bag!

See how to coil a cam strap in this video:

Silver heavy duty nylon strapping with a reflective badge for night time visibility and steel cam buckle made to last. Available in 1 meter for small loads or 3 meters for big stuff.
