The Surly Big Fat Dummy, a long tail, fat-tired cargo bike, will be available around April 2017. Price TBD.
If you’re familiar with Surly, then you know this bike was inevitable. Surly’s Big Dummy has been a dependable long-tail cargo bike for years (yet somehow we never managed to discuss it here).
And then Surly began to roll out one fat bike model after another: Moonlander, Pugsley, Ice Cream Truck, Wednesday, along with fat do-it-all bikes like the Troll, Ogre, and ECR. In fact, we imagined Surly making the following pitch at a QBP product meeting:
QBP Head Honcho: OK, let’s talk 2016 products. Surly, go ahead.
Surly: Fat, fat, fat, fat. As you know, we’re all about the fat bikes. And we just keep getting fatter. Like land-on-the-moon fat.
But Surly wasn’t done getting fatter, and we should’ve known that. The Big Fat Dummy will take 26×5.25 tires! Complete bikes will ship with 26×3.8 tires.
The Surly blog has a long post with everything you need to know about the Big Fat Dummy. So if you’re interested, check it out.
