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.
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 Flightdeck (required to mount the Yepp PeaPodIII child seat) and Freeloader Panniers. The Freeloader is tough and roomy and has cozy toe pockets for your passengers.
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. We’ve also recommend adding a stoker bar with Civia grips to assure you’re ready for any load. We sell the bike stock with fenders and pedals $2000
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
