Xtracycle is using Media Wiki software for their open source long tail standard. The Long Tail frame standard and dimensions are now available as PDF downloads, with a design checklist document also available. There's also room for discussion on product ideas, with a reminder that "while Xtracycle isn't here to steal your ideas, anything you put on here is now open-source and as such is available for everyone to use freely."

Cool stuff -- go check it out.

...as i mentioned over at 'commute by bike', that is an open, intelligent & progressive idea, in that it allows various companies to be on the same page in a way that can only benefit the cycling community...

...props to xtracycle...& to the folks who regularly use 'work' or 'truck' bikes...

...while most of us ride whenever we can, i feel like these folks shoulder a little more of the burden...
we're not shouldering, merely having fun trying out the swell of the wave, come and hang ten!
