Claude would have to weigh in on the specific technical differences but I can say the following about my user experience:

1. Passenger seats "up". My girls simply step up to the seat rather than stepping down into the sidecar. Even my wife thinks this is an improvement over sidecars that sit lower (e.g., my Watsonian).

2. Lots of useful cargo space. Locking compartments in back and under seat as well as a LARGE glove compartment (for all passenger gadgets).

3. Car itself has high ground clearance (not sure it is higher over CSM-1).

4. Very spacious inside the car - we have carried a lot behind seat, next to seat, and in front without sacrificing passenger comfort.

5. Useful cargo racks - cooler or anything square-shaped fits perfectly on the level back rack. I carry extra gas "cans" but I am sure a fuel cell could be installed on the back rack. With the windshield down (or off), the front and rear racks create a level surface for carrying large toys/objects. I will need to ask Claude for one modification and I will be able to install an off-the-shelf bike rack for other hobby.

Thanks for the info. What is the inside width of the side car near the seat?

I also enjoy mountain biking as does my kids so I will probably end up with a hitch mount on the rear for our three bikes.

About 15-16 inches between sidecar and bike seat, 24 inches wide inside the car, and the sidecar seat is 18 inches wide. Not sure these measurements are answers to your question...

John,
It could be 24" if you wish. However if you are talking about distance between sidecar and bike the sidecar may need to be made slightly more narrow to compensate. This would be to keep track width within a respectable range.

I was looking at butt room. I held a tape up to the wife and she said "Wgat are you doing? Seeing how big my butt has gotten!" My reply was no sweety just seeng how big a seat would be comfy for you


A 17" would be fine but a 24" would give room to a suspension seat like what is run in a desert racer.

With Stroker wheels/tires and Claude's suspension, it already rides like your are rolling on marshmallows.

Oh FR700 say it isn't so ! You used a skid loader seat ? I must admit I'm tempted to do that myself.DB
