Surly Big Dummy



The Surly Big Dummy is the perfect longtail bike. The sturdy frame, constructed from TIG welded CroMo steel. Quality components like the Shimano Deore drivetrain and Avid disc brakes augment this very functional bike.

This bike is fully compatible with any Xtracycle accessory. Load your groceries, load your kids, this option gives you endless possibilities. AND with a 400-pound rider & load limit, you’ll have lots of fun exploring those possibilities. The Big Dummy is built around the Xtracycle platform, but as a dedicated single-piece frame. That means a stouter, more torsionally rigid bike that’s more resistant to fatigue and failure.  All Big Dummys include the Xtracycle racks, decks, and bags.

We sell our* bike stock with Alivio 3 x 9 drivetrain, disc brakes,  fenders, pedals, racks, bag, and deck $2050 

Note: currently available only in gray

*please note, our stock build differs from the Surly stock bike.

Add e-assist. Speaking of any load, if you want to assure that you can easily handle any load or can conquer the hills in your neighborhood and beyond, consider adding BionX to your Big Dummy. The BionX system is a great match for this workhorse bike. $3500
