Turn any bike into a cargo-hauling beast!Review by Sofie
:
I mounted one of these on a 21-speed 90's Diamondback, which I found on Craigslist for $100. Roughly 1 year and a little TLC later, I have a sweet cargo-hauler and grocery-getter, and a ridiculously stable winter machine that I put together for relatively little money. If you want to try out cargo biking without spending a fortune, or you already have a bike you love but need more carrying space (for running errands, carrying kiddos, etc.), then this is the only way to go.

I will say that as an apartment-dweller living on the second floor with no garage/exterior storage space, I had no idea where I was going to keep this thing. Some people might tell you differently, but my bike is way, way too heavy to haul up and down the stairs. In the end, I opted to lock it up in my backyard with a ridiculously heavy-duty Abus lock coupled with a motorcycle cover to protect it from the elements. I'm only comfortable with this setup because I didn't spend thousands of dollars on this bike, but I've had zero issues so far!

While you certainly can have this installed by a professional mechanic at Perennial Cycle, this is an especially fun challenge for the DIY-er/skilled home bike mechanic. You'll want a bike stand, and you'll need a few additional parts to get it going (tandem length brake and shift cables and extra chain length for sure). Keep in mind the Leap is disc-brake only, so if you're converting a bike with rim brakes, you'll need a disc-compatible rear wheel, disc brake, and rotor. You'll also want bags, and there are several options available from Xtracycle and other sellers (just make sure you're buying something that's Leap compatible).
