Big Dummy

My Surly Big Dummy frame arrived Wednesday. I Need to get a head set, bottom bracket, cranks, front derailleur(28.6 top pull), seat, post, Xtracycle racks/bags, and brakes. Can't wait to get it built and go camping with it.

Joe that ROCKS!!! I can't wait to see what you think of it once it's built up. I've been thinking about one of these, but I think I can cover most of my needs with either the LHT/pannier combo or the Karate Monkey/trailer pairing.

Steve, I know I'm gonna love it as I had an Xtracycle for 4 years and since I sold it a year ago, I've missed it dearly. When I sold the Xtracycle last year, I thought I could get by with racks and panniers, but there are just some things that you can't haul with them. I had a BOB trailer prior to owning the Xtracycle, and I had thought about just buying another one, but you can only haul so much with a BOB.

Nice Big Dummy!
- funny tidbit- I heard our LBS got one in. I went in and asked to see the Big Dummy, they said he would be right back.

Can't wait to see it built!
