snapdeck replacment braces
The snapdeck was in for "service" so I whipped up these braces to keep the side loaders rigid while I carried some hefty loads.
I basically shaped some scrap wood with the bench grinder to fit the frame profile and snapped it in. I then used a stap to keep everything secure. Worked great.
I could see this as an option if you used the xtracycle in a location where you were worried about snapdeck theft.
I think you could even make accessories that bolt onto these braces-- maybe a basket or...?
