Step 8: Add A Cargo Platform
There are lots of options for cargo carrying. I chose a simple platform as shown in figure 1. I attached some scrap seat stays to the clamp and to the top tube of the Xtends unit (see figure 2). I also added a piece of tubing into the seat tube of the Xtends unit (figure 3). I welded together a platform out of 1" electrical tubing and welded it to the Xtend seatstays and seat tube. This attachment is removable in case I ever want to reconfigure the cargo format.
