Our Dummy Deck provides a light, durable platform for Surly cargo bikes including the Surly Big Dummy and Big Easy. The Dummy Deck is stamped from 4mm-thick aluminum (chosen for its strength, durability, and recyclability), and it bolts directly to Surly Dummy Rails to stiffen and stabilize the whole system. Dummy Deck features cut-outs for routing straps and cordage, a mounting hole for a rear light bracket, accessory-mounting holes, and countersunk holes for SuperSurlHook hardware. The Dummy Deck that comes with complete Surly cargo bikes is powder coated to match the frame. The aftermarket Dummy Deck (pictured here) is anodized black.
