Grocery Gitter…the saga continues

Russ and Jack were the first to start building up a “Grocery Gitter” bike, them Moe followed suit with his Breezer Gitter. Now one of our loyal readers, Rick Logue(I like your initials) sent us photos of his Gitter bike.

Here’s what Rick had to say about his Gitter:

These pictures are completely staged. The only differences between
these and real life are that I left out the toilet paper so you could see my
daughters’ beautiful faces and there is nothing in the back of the trailer.

This is usually my rig for getting any type of groceries. The Burley
trailer has a little bit of space in the back (two paper bags worth) for
carrying things. The pannier is an old military surplus ammo bag with
Arkel’s mounting hardware. That bag is great for a six pack of beer.

Check it out!

He’s got his priorities on straight because he’s got a man’s essentials on his rack…diapers and beer. But the best part about his Gitter are those beautiful kids in the trailer! Aw…

If you’ve got a Gitter you’d like to share with the world, send it over to Info@BikeCommuters.com

    You’ll get photos of mine as soon as I can figure how to mount my FrontLoader on my XXIX.

    Thanks for including the girls and the bike. The girls are always asking to get something from the store just so they can ride in the trailer.

    I know a few of you have Xtracycles. Would I be able to use the trailer if I convert this bike?

    It may work. If you look at the Xtracycle frame, you can try and picture where you trailer would mount and see if it will work. I have a Croozer cargo trailer that works on the Xtracycle, but it rubs the frame at times.

    I use a Burley on my Xtra to haul the dog to work. I mounted the Burley hitch to the frame then use a removable pin at the hitch/tongue junction to make the trailer easily removable.
