Xtracycle Perth

Postby Becker_11 » Sun Jun 15, 2014 9:35 pm

My housemates girlfriend is keen on the xtracycle and has tasked me with find out how much they are and how to get one in Perth.

http://www.cargocycles.com.au/ is listed as the aussie stockist however they only seem to stock accessories not actual bikes.

Does anyone know of a bike shop in Perth that is stocking them? Or is the only option to order one online?

Thanks. I guess I'll have to email them and see if they can give me prices & a rough idea on postage.

I have seen one in a store (I think south perth) some years back. There are certainly a few on the streets. A ring round of the non-chain-store shops may be in order

If you're thinking Xtracycle then you might also consider the full cargobikes.

There was a Surly Big Dummy for sale in Perth recently, they do come up. And a Kona Ute, although they're more shopper bikes. There may be an early model Ute in Guildford Cycles but a bit overpriced. Dirtworks used to be the importer for Surlys and lost that, their Clickbike website for disposals doesn't have a BD listed anymore. There's an Xtracycle bolt-on kit for sale in Adelaide, attached to a bike with a few interesting parts although you'd be better to attach it to an MTB, as seen on a few bikes in Perth. These are all what is called 'longtail' bikes as opposed to some of the other types of cargobike; there are many weird and wonderful designs about the place.

I have a Big Dummy, not for sale but. Too useful.

Turns out xtracycle doesn't sell direct to the public so I emailed cargocycles dot com dot au as they are the aust distributor but 2 days later i haven't heared a peep from them.


Calling shops is a good idea & I might call a few 2noro during lunch.

Look here
They will work with a LBS possibly to order it for you, or connect with splendid cycles.
