Big Dummy

Filed under: Events — nicholasb @ 1:26 pm

One of these is a super heavy duty urban transport load carrying machine.. The other is a SUV..

We had the pleasure of building up our first Surly Big Dummy recently. It’s a new frame from Surly that’s built to work with the Xtracycle long-tail cargobike set up. Alex went for a Rohloff to give him the gear range to haul all the cargo that an Xtracycle can carry, a Brooks B17 and a Bobike Maxi child seat.

Have a look at all the photos here.


  1. Welcome to the Cult of Dummy. It’s nice in here. Very, very nice.

  3. Daisy daisy give me your answer do….
    It won’t be a stylish marriage,
    I can’t afford a carriage,
    But you’ll look sweet on the seat,
    Of a bicycle built for 2 (or 3)
