Shipping an Xtra Rig

Andrew came out for our weekly Wed Night Coffee Ride on his electric Rocky Mountain w/ Xtracycle. He was a nice guy and his bike was pretty cool. One thing he mentioned that I thought I would share was that he was able to pack his MTB and the Xtracycle in a normal sized bike box. Very nice! That makes touring with an Xtracycle so much easier as you'd only have to deal with the normal sized box for getting on a plane or shipping. As Rob notes below the weight of an Xtracycle is in the same ballpark as 4 panniers and 2 racks. So without any shipping hassles and at a similar weight an Xtracycle becomes a very interesting choice for a touring rig.
