  Surly Big Dummy in the news
By Yokota Fritz 
The Big Dummy is Surly's recently introduced long tail bicycle. What differentiates the Big Dummy from other long tails is that it's designed for use with Xtracycle's modular components for the Free Radical system.

WCCO in Minneapolis featured the Surly Big Dummy in a recent newscast. You can watch the archived video here. According to the story, Surly sold 90 Big Dummies in about 4 hours the first day it became available. It was already backordered the first week the Big Dummy was available from Surly.

The Surly Big Dummies shown in the video are equipped with Clever Cycle's Stokemonkey, but the news people don't mention the electric assist.

More: Visit Surly Blog. Read discussion about the Stokemonkey (which Clever Cycles currently does not ship). To buy a Big Dummy, visit the Surly Dealer page. Surly is a brand of the big bike distributor QBP, so any bike shop should be able to order the Big Dummy for you. The Big Dummy is only available as a frameset, so you need to use a bike shop that will help you put the bike together and/or you really need to know what you're doing.

If I had a hat on, I'd tip it to Sveden of Minneapolis. See his Minneapolis / St Paul bike race calendar.

  Surly Pugsley and 40 days in the Australian desert
By Yokota Fritz 
See more fat tire bicycles here.

Jakub Postrzygacz traveled 1200 miles across the hot Australia Outback, through the most remote areas of West Australia, across three deserts and over hundreds of sand hills on his bicycle, a wide-tired Surly Pugsley. Visit Jakub's website for his journal and some amazing photos from his 40 day adventure.

That third wheel on the back of his bicycle in the photo is the Polish-built ExtraWheel trailer.
