Surly Big Fat Dummy


This is what a Big Dummy looks like.  Courtesy Surly Blog

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 26x5.25 tires!  Complete bikes will ship with 26x3.8 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.

Salsa Marrakesh

New for 2016, Salsa Cycles is offering Marrakesh for around $1,600.

The Marrakesh looks like a really nice touring bike, at least the version with the Salsa Cowchipper bars (I can't imagine touring with flat bars, even if they do have a slight bend - you need multiple hand positions).  I like touring bikes (my main ride is a Miyata 1000 LT) because their ability to haul a heavy load over long miles necessarily makes them useful and versatile bikes.  It's why I'm a fan of Surly's LHT/Disc Trucker.

The LHT now has some serious competition.  The interesting thing is that both Surly and Salsa (as well as Civia, All-City and others) are owned by Quality Bicycle Products (QBP).  I can just imagine how that QBP board meeting went down:

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.

QBP Head Honcho: Fantastic. People love those fat bikes. OK, how about you Salsa?

Salsa: As you know, our slogan is "Adventure by Bike." So, new for 2016, we're putting out a touring bike called the Marrakesh.

Surly: Wait... what?

Salsa: It comes with disc brakes, room for wide tires (700 x 40 mm) and fenders, and includes a rear rack.

Surly: We already produce a touring bike with disc brakes. The Disc Trucker.

Salsa: We know!!! Where do you think we stole the idea from?  Anyway, we're "Adventure by Bike." That certainly includes touring bikes.  And you're... you know, fat.  Like, Ice Cream Truck fat.

Surly: This is starting to get insulting.  

QBP Head Honcho: Salsa has a point. Adventure by Bike is not just about riding trails.  It's also the open road.  OK, anything else?

Salsa: Yes, we also have this whole fat bike line-up we call Bear Grease. Because nothing says "Adventure by Bike" like fat bikes! Fat, fat, fat, fat.

Surly: *face palm*

End scene.


Of course, I'm not sure if that's how it really went down. Maybe QBP Head Honcho can provide us with some clarification.

Here are the specs on the 2016 Marrakesh:

Surly LHT

Surly's Disc Trucker. Credit: surlybikes.com
If you had to classify it in the wild, you would call Surly's Long Haul Trucker a touring bike. It is, in fact, one of the most versatile bikes on the market today and easily makes our Pick Six list.

As David wrote in 2010, the LHT is "a good jack-of-all-trades bike: reliable transportation, fitness machine, social lubricant, and access to power." 

Surly has actually improved the LHT since 2010 by providing more options. You can choose between canti or disc brakes, and Surly now offers a wider range of frame sizes that will take 26" wheels. 

In telling us about her LHT a few months ago, Sally wrote: "Boy, talk about a practical bike. Wide 26" wheels, front and back racks, disc brakes (did I mention it rains in Oregon?) and built to haul almost anything."

The LHT was one of the first bikes that came to mind when I decided to do this Pick Six project and, not surprisingly, it was quickly nominated in the comments and on twitter.

Rev. Dick of Church of the Sweet Ride commented: "I nominate: whatever you got. If you don't got nothing, I nominate a Surly Long Haul Trucker. Value and options."

And here's the coffeeneur (of Chasing Mailboxes):




Jim Thill, co-owner of Hiawatha Cyclery in Minneapolis, recently blogged on the topic of "What bike should you buy?" He called the LHT (as well as the Cross-Check) "classic picks." I can no longer find it on the internet, but Jim once recommended that we all stockpile LHTs for the coming oil shortage apocalypse. I can picture it: All those LHT owners riding past abandoned SUVs and cars on the expressways.

Honorable Mention: Surly Troll. Also extremely versatile.  I wrote about the Troll when it debuted in 2010.

#5 Sally's Stable

Sally has great taste in bikes.  Here's what she has to say about each of her 3 bikes:


Nice vintage Takara. All photos credit Sally.

I have three bikes in my stable. I love them all. 
1. First up is the gem who got me back on a bike three and a half years ago (and more than 18,000 bike miles ago): An 80s Japanese road bike, a 52cm Takara Tribute in an iridescent light purple, 27” wheels. I bought it off craigslist from a man who used to own a bike store. It was his wife’s bike, lightly ridden and had been sitting in the garage for years. The tires needed to be replaced (crumbly sidewalls), it needed a tuneup and fenders (I live in Oregon). I knew nothing about bikes. But it fit me, wasn't "too girly" despite the color and the quality was miles beyond the cheap Huffy in the shed. I started commuting to work and biking for fun and well, just kept going. 


Sally's Bridgestone overlooking Crater Lake.


2. By May of the following year I was hankering after maybe a little lighter and faster bike. Guided by size (hey this one will fit me) and not by any expert knowledge, I bought a 52cm red Bridgestone 700 with crazy mustache handlebars wrapped in a zebra-y black and white tape and thinner, 700 tires. It became my Summer Bike. It gets a lot of "cool bike" shout outs.


Sally's LHT, fully loaded and ready to go.



3. Of course I kept an eye out for other bikes but with two solid, steel-framed steeds, it was hard to justify buying anything else. I didn't need a lighter bike (not a racer!) and these two fit my needs pretty well (commuting year around, weekend rides, shopping/errands). But then I began to think of touring....and hauling more stuff....and....and...this fall I fell for the Surly DiscTrucker. Hard. Boy, talk about a practical bike. Wide 26” wheels, front and back racks, disc brakes (did I mention it rains in Oregon?) and built to haul almost anything. I talked myself in and out of buying it many times but then it was Labor Day weekend and there was a sale at my local bike store...well. I did it. I bought a NEW bike. Paid for by the money saved in car costs from my 3+ years of commuting. It's a workhorse and perfect for wet, cold weather and when I need to haul almost anything.

#3 Daniel's Surly Cross Check

Daniel's Cross Check takes him to beautiful places in New England.
Here's what Daniel has to say about his Cross Check (a long time BFROU favorite):


First, the long story is here, a response to Lovely Bike's nine
questions to consider when buying a bike:

http://newenglandbicyclist.blogspot.com/2012/05/lovelybike.html

LB tweeted the response so it is my second most popular post (which doesn't mean I'm at all a popular blogger).  But to summarize:

1) Why did I chose the model?

I was looking for a multipurpose bicycle, something that I could
commute on, pull a trailer with my children, carry a child on a rack mounted child seat, ride on dirt roads, and maybe tour one day.


I looked at complete bikes but I didn't want a touring bike and the complete Surly Cross Check needed fixing so I looked at frames including the Soma Double Cross, the Gunnar Cross Hairs, and the Surly CC.  

My dealer had issues with a Soma, which gave me pause (I'd strongly consider a Soma today, including the mixte and the Grant Peterson designed model), and the Surly CC.  I ended up going with the latter, with Shimano 105 components including a racing triple, hand built wheels, fenders, and racks, front and rear.  I later added a new front wheel with a dynamo hub and lights, which are great to have.

2) How do I use this bike?

Just like I thought I might.  I commute 14 miles round trip 50 or more days a year (it's often hard with two day care or kindergarten dropoffs and pick ups to find the time and space for commuting by bike) and it serves me well. I also carry the kids as expected and they sometimes love it or at least love the destinations.  


And it has been a dirt road and even trail bike.  I did the 2009 D2R2 100K and the 2013 D2R2 Green River Ride as well as the Ride Studio Cafe Diverged Ride this spring.  I did a fall ride this year that let me know how dirty a bike can get off road.  

I have used it for very early morning and night rides this year - I don't yet have lights mounted on my road bike.  I still love it and think it was a great choice.

Thanks,
Daniel

Surly Pacer

The 2012 Surly Pacer is "sparkleboogie blue."  Sharp. Courtesy: Surly.


The Surly Pacer, available as a complete bike for MSRP $1175, or as a frameset for MSRP $465.

The Pacer has always stood out as an all-purpose steel road bike, especially in this era of carbon fiber racing machines, but three things about the 2012 Pacer caught my attention.

First, it's available as a complete bike now, not just as a frameset. That makes it more accessible to wider range of bike buyers.

Second, the 2012 model takes wider tires than previous Pacers. It will take a 32 mm tire, or 28 mm with fenders.

Third, I couldn't help but notice Surly's catchy slogan: "The Pacer reminds us, quietly, that there is a road bike out there for the rest of us." 

Here are the specs:

Frame: Surly 4130 CroMoly steel. Main triangle double butted. TIG welded.

Fork: Surly 4130 CroMoly steel. Lugged and brazed. 1 1/8" threadless steer tube, uncut

Crankset: Andel RSC2 , RSC2-217XR. 34/50t. Silver

Bottom bracket: Shimano UN-54, 68 x 110mm. Square taper interface

Front Derailleur: Shimano Tiagra , FD4600. 28.6mm clamp

Rear Derailleur: Shimano Tiagra, RD4600-SS.

Silver Cog or Cogset: Shimano Tiagra , CS-4600. 12-28t

Chain: SRAM PC-1071 , 10-speed. Silver

Headset: Cane Creek 40 , 1-1/8" threadless. Black

Brakes: Tektro R358 , Dual pivot. Standard reach (47-57mm). Silver

Rear Hub: Shimano Tiagra , FH4600. 32h. 130mm O.L.D. Silver Rims Alex R390 , 32h. Black

Tires: Continental Ultra Sport , 28mm. Steel bead. Black

Sizes: 42, 46, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62

A Short Take On The Disc Brake

Is there a rotor in your biking future? Credit: biking.com
Disc brakes are the hot new trend for 2012 bikes for the rest of us.  For example, the 2012 Felt Verza City 1 comes standard with disc brakes, front and rear. 


The Verza City 1 - it's got all the latest gadgetry. Credit Felt.

Many other '12 models, especially cargo bikes, come with front only disc brakes (your stopping power is in the front).  And for the first time, Surly is offering its venerable Long Haul Trucker with disc brakes - the Disc Trucker.

A look at the Disc Trucker's rear rotor. Credit: Surly.

Of course, disc brakes have been around for awhile now on mountain bikes.  But for transportation bikes, this is something new.  In the midst of this change, Tyler at Bike Radar has raised some important questions, one of which is whether the trend toward disc brakes is driven by consumer demand or actual performance gain.  Interestingly, in introducing the Disc Trucker, Surly said it was responding to consumer demand, and said nothing about improved performance over rim brakes.

Here are a few reasons why, even though you've been getting along just fine all these years with ordinary rim brakes, you might want to consider a bike with disc brakes:

1. You ride in a place with a wet climate. Ordinary rim brakes don’t work as well when wet.

2. You ride in a place with hilly terrain. Disc brakes should help you stop better on a steep descent. "Should" is the key word. More on that in a moment.

3. You ride quite a bit off-road.  Mud and dirt can come between your rims and brakepads and diminish caliper brake performance.

4. You will be carrying heavy load and could use help bringing your fully-loaded rig to a halt. This is why we've been seeing front disc brakes on 2012 cargo bikes.
OK, but what about safety? That brings us back to Tyler at Bike Radar, whose disc brakes failed on a steep descent (scratch off reason #2, above?).  The first thing you'll see when you click the link in the next sentence is a photo of Tyler lying in a ditch with 5 broken ribs.  So...  Read Bike Radar first.  Then decide if disc brakes are for you.

Surly Troll


The Troll as a complete bike. Credit: Surly Blog.

We already mentioned the Surly Troll in our recent discussion of "do-everything" bikes. The Troll frameset is due to arrive in November 2010, and according to Surly's blog, the MSRP will be $495. Surly has not said whether it will be offered as a complete bike in the future.

With its wide tire clearance, the Troll is designed to be an extremely versatile bike. When it was first announced on Surly's blog, they described it as "a commuter, tractor, off-roader, tourer, dethmachine."

As for the "tractor" part, it seems plain that the Troll was designed to go with Surly's new trailer. The Troll has horizontal dropouts along with a thick axle plate for installing Surly trailer-mounting nuts.

The frame has full line guides for derailleur and brake housing, fender eyelets, and disc and rim brake mounts. Both the frame and fork are equipped with mounts for front and rear racks, and the design allows the use of racks, fenders and disc brakes all at the same time.

Basically, the Troll can be whatever you need it to be, short of a carbon-lite racing bike.

Here are the specs:

Tubing: Surly 4130 CroMoly steel. TIG-welded. Main triangle double-butted

Seatpost diameter: 27.2mm

Seatpost clamp: 30.0mm Surly stainless, included

Headset/stem: 1-1/8" threadless

Bottom bracket: 73mm shell width, threaded standard English (1.37" x 24t)

Braze-ons/extras: Full-length housing line guides for derailleurs and brakes; 2 sets of water bottle cage mounts, removable post cantilever pivots; upper seatstay threaded barrels,mid-and low-blade fully threaded through-blade fork eyelets; threaded holes for racks, fenders and trailer mounting nuts; Rohloff OEM2 axle plate mounting slot

Brake compatibility: Disc and rim brake compatible. Note: rear disc brake is limited to 165mm maximum rotor diameter and requires the use of Surly caliper adapter

Tire clearance: 26 x 2.5" with rear wheel fully forward. Clearance for 2.7" tire with wheel farther back

Chainring clearance: 28/38/50t

Hub compatibility: 100mm O.L.D. front, 135mm O.L.D. rear

Fork: TIG-welded 4130 CroMoly, 100mm suspension corrected, tapered straight blade. Low- and mid-blade fully threaded through-blade rack eyelets; fender mount eyelets at dropout; 1-18" x 260mm threadless steer tube, 51mm disc mount, removable cantilever pivots, line/housing guides

Color: Agent Orange

Update #1: check out Bikes to Like at Chasing Mailboxes on Pedro's Troll. 

Update #2: For 2012, Surly now offers the 29'er version of the Troll, which it calls the Ogre

Surly Trailer

New for 2011 - the Surly trailer.  Photo credit: Surly.
Surly plans to release the above-pictured trailer sometime during spring 2011.  According to the Surly blog, the MSRP will be $750 short, $775 long.  According to Surly, the trailer meets two requirements often lacking in bike trailers: (1) it can haul a heavy load and (2) it will work with any bike.

The trailer is constructed from TIG-welded CroMoly steel tubing.  The platform is 32 x 24". The wheels are 16" in diameter, and comes with 16 x 1.95" tires, although there is clearance for 16 x 2.5" tires. According to Surly, it can carry a load of up to 300 pounds (136 kg).

As for bike compatibility, Surly says the trailer hitch is designed to align the centerline of the trailer with the centerline of any bike. "It will work with bikes that have wheels as small as 20" and as large as 29" while keeping the bed level with the ground. This is especially important when you are hauling long items that hang off the back of the trailer (lumber, tubing, ladders, etc.)."

There are so many uses for a trailer like this:

- It's another option for the car-free. Rather than investing in a cargo bike, you can simply hook up the trailer to your bike of choice when you need to haul groceries or whatever. (On its blog, Surly notes the trailer + a new $1100 bike would cost as much as a Big Dummy (their cargo bike).

- It's another option for bike camping. Rather than investing in a touring bike, you can simply hook up the trailer and haul your camping stuff. (But don't make dad haul everything!)

- It's another option for day trips to the beach or picnic areas.

It's nice to have options.

The Case For Owning Multiple Bikes

Ah, the search for "The One."


1892 wedding picture. Courtesy Pikes Peak library.

The One who will make your heart flutter, your insides tingle.  The One who will have you walking around in a dreamy daze. 

The One you will travel the world with, over smooth roads and rough terrain. The One who will be with you when you take in amazingly beautiful vistas. The One who will be with you during your most mundane moments, such as grocery-shopping, hardware store runs, and commuting to work. 

The One, for better and for worse.

Have you found The One?

I thought I had 10 years ago.  She was an Italian-made steel road bike, versatile enough to be my commuter, my century ride, my light tourer, my grocery-hauling do-it-all multipurpose bike (you knew this was about bikes, right?). 

The One.

But time and experience will change a man.

I still believe that steel road bikes make the best all-rounders.  But what if you want to do some fully-loaded touring or bike camping?  Then maybe the Surly Long-Haul Trucker is The One, or if you love vintage bikes maybe a 1980's Miyata 1000.



The 1983 Miyati 1000.  Credit: MiyataCatalogs.com

What if you want to take in some dirt?  Then you may want wider tire clearance to allow for fatter tires, if not knobbies.  Of course, this point is arguable.  In a 1993 article in Bicycling magazine, Chris Kostman wrote: "I routinely dust every mountain biker I encounter on the trail. And I ride a road bike."  Of course, he is a cocky S-O-B: "More bluntly, a road bike is equal to or better than a mountain bike if ridden with skill like I have."

Grant Petersen pursued the dream of The One during his tenure with Bridgestone.  The result was the XO-1, which he touted as "the most versatile, the most exciting bike we've ever made; and under the legs of a strong, skilled rider, it can do almost anything."



An ad for the XO-1.  Credit: sheldonbrown.com

The XO-1 became the Atlantis when Petersen started Rivendell, but the XO-1 has plenty of other progeny as well, including recent entrants such as the Rawland Sogn and perhaps Surly's soon-to-be released Troll.




The Troll (note to Surly -- please rename). Credit: Surly Blog.

Surly says "the idea behind this sucker is a commuter, tractor, off-roader, tourer, dethmachine."  By the way, Surly is quite serious about the "tractor" part - they're coming out with a trailer for 2011 that they claim can haul 300 pounds of cargo. 

There's nothing wrong with pursuing The One.  But I've found a special joy in owning a bunch of bikes and riding them all frequently.  I currently have five very different bikes: the aforementioned road bike, an XO-2, a mountain bike, a fixie, and a 60-year-old English 3-speed.  I find that I am riding more than ever. 

The 1994 Bridgestone catalog included an article titled "How To Ride A Bike Forever," which recommended owning multiple bikes:


Make your bicycles so different that your experience on one is unlike the other -- a mountain bike and a road bike, a multispeed and a single speed, or a clunker, or a recumbent.  For some people, even different handlebars are enough of a change.  It's worth a try.


How To Ride A Bike Forever - click for big if you want to read the whole thing. Credit: sheldonbrown.com/bridgestones


So there you have it.  It's okay to be with multiple bikes.  And don't worry: they never get jealous.

Electra Townie Balloon 8i

Here in the DC area, the only kind of Bike For The Rest Of Us you're likely to be riding following the big blizzard is one that can trudge through snow and slush. Snow has a tendency to render rim brakes useless, clog up fenders and swallow tires less than 2" wide. So what kind of bike would I like to be riding in the snow? An Electra Townie Balloon 8i, of course.

What? No Cyclecross bike? No Surly Pugsley? OK, so a Pugsley would be really nice, but the Electra is a little more upright, a little less extreme. Plus, it has roller brakes, front and rear!! I can probably count on my hands the number of bikes sold in the US with roller brakes. OK, count on one hand for those sold in your local LBS.

The Electra also comes with Schwalbe Fat Frank tires that are 2.35 inches wide to float over the snow. Gearing is a Shimano Nexus 8-speed internal that is more impervious to the elements. A partial chain guard will keep the faux-fur trim on your Sorel Pack Boots clean. The crank-forward design of these bikes will also be useful for putting your feet down as your bike slides out from underneath you on the black ice.

OK, so I'd rather be testing tire flotation on some soft beach sand like Yokota Fritz, but for now just thinking about riding this bike in the snow will have to do.

Long Haul Trucker, by Surly

This post is long overdue. The Long Haul Trucker, by Surly/QBP, is a terrific bike, and a terrific value, even though the suggested retail price is $1,100. 

Officially, it's a "touring" bike, meaning it's good at carrying you and all your belongings on a Lewis-and-Clark-style expedition. Unofficially, it's a good jack-of-all-trades bike: reliable transportation, fitness machine, social lubricant, and access to power.

If I didn't know a lot about bikes, I would think, "$1,100? I could get a used car for that." However, if you bought a car for $1,100, you'd probably have to spend another $500 every year to keep it going. At least.

What makes the Long Haul Trucker (LHT) worth $1,100? It's pretty simple: the parts. A bike is worth the sum of its parts, and the parts package on the LHT is about as good as it gets in the off-the-shelf bike world. Here are some highlights:
  • Bar end shifters - these things will save you $300 and several headaches. The popular alternatives are integrated shifter/brake levers. They work fine, but are somewhat fragile (considering they are often the first point of impact in a crash), expensive to replace, and require precise adjustment. Bar-end shifters are extremely durable, are located out of harm's way, aren't nearly as expensive to replace (you won't ever need to replace them anyway), and have a back-up operating mode that can be used if they come out of adjustment. Simply put, this bike would cost $200 more if it had integrated shifter/brake levers, and you'd likely pay even more in the long run.
  • Cantilever brakes - as opposed to linear-pull ("v") brakes. Cantilever brakes are compatible with a wide variety of brake levers, and allow for a wider variety of handlebar options.
  • Lots of practical, quality parts that most people don't think about: one-piece forged seatpost, wide-range cassette (11-34), UN-53 square-taper bottom-bracket, crankset compatible with good quality inexpensive replacement chainrings available pretty much anywhere in the world, Tektro brakes and brake levers, high grade hubs, name-brand stainless spokes, decent tires, etc. Many of these things used to standard on all bikes, but that isn't the case anymore, you have to look close.
  • Stout chrome-moly steel frame, with lots of well-conceived details, in colors like "Truckaccino Tan" and "Hill Street Blue."
  • Finally, a whole bunch of sizes: 42, 46, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, and 62 cm, with two wheel sizes available for the larger sizes (a first, as far as I know, for production bikes).
So that's the deal, and it's a good one, if you can get over buying a bike from a company named after the "surly bike-shop employees" at your local independent bicycle dealer.
