Hi. I recently purchased a Surly Big Easy. It is replacing a Trek Transport that was stolen. While I'm really looking forward to using the Big Easy, I would like to have the lower racks / foot rests that the Transport had.
The xtracycle had (has) these accessories called utubes. They are exactly what I would like to have for my Big Easy. Only issue is that the current version of these UTubes does not work with the Big Easy / Big Dummy lineup. And the prior versions are not readily available.
Do any of you have any experience with this issue? Is there a relatively easy DIY way to create these UTubes. Would this be something a framemaker could craft?
I appreciate any thoughts or tips anyone might have.
