  • Big Dummy

    Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it’s stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons.

    Like all our frames, it’s made of our size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you’ve come to love in a Surly like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it’s loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before.

    If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Dummy, Surly requires use of our Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. These are included with MY18 Big Dummy bikes and frames, as well as available AM for older Big Dummy bikes and frames [compatible with all generations of Big Dummy bikes/frames]. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility.

    If you are planning to carry a child on your Big Dummy, Surly recommends the use of a child seat. We’ve tested the Maxxi Yepp seat. They make an adaptor that that allows their seat to mount onto our deck. It works well with the Big Dummy. At this time other child seats are not recommended and will void your warranty. We are testing other options. For the most up to date compatibility/options, check here.

    Note: keep in mind Big Dummy weight limits when carrying a passenger.
