Gallery: Anne’s “Phatty” Xtracycle

I thought I might submit my “phatty” from Seaford in Victoria, Australia. It’s a recycled old ’80;s Cr Mo frame — resurrected from kerb side rubbish collection. I had the frame stripped and re powder coated in a metallic charcoal. I use it as my shopper and sometime commuter. It took me 4 months just to arrange to get the kit out here then another 2 months acquiring the components to put it together. —Anne
