I recently swapped out my other bars on the Xtracycle because I needed them on my tandem. So I went with this beach cruiser bar that I had. But the only problem was that it was way too big. When ever I had to get on or off the bike, my leg would get caught.
So what I did was cut down the bars about 7 inches on each side…right where the bars started to bend. I reinstalled the grips and place the bar on the Xtracycle.
I then took the excess portion of the bars that I just cut and made them into footsies.
When I drilled the hole into the footsies, I tapped it and installed a screw to prevent it from falling out or moving around too much. I then installed some grips that I had laying around.
