Surly Big Fat Dummy
$3,175.00
The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ol' spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. 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. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations.

Jamis Trail X A1
$699.95
Building great recreational-level bikes that ride much like (and look a lot like) our high-end bikes is a passion at Jamis. And, no bikes showcase our commitment to doing just that better than the Trail X. This bike's chassis emphasizes all-day performance, and the handling is quick and sure without being overly darty. But make no mistake, if you want to throw down, they are more than able to keep up with their 27.5" wheels, precise shifting drivetrains, and incredibly powerful disc brakes.
Marin Rock Spring 2
$599.00
The Rock Spring 2 is built to go explore cross country singletrack and fire trails or as a durable do it all bike for a commuter. The Rock Spring 2 is built around a durable, lightweight 6061 aluminium frame and Marin’s size specific wheel size system. Each frame size is paired with the wheel size that best fits the rider and sets them up for optimal efficiency and power transfer. It's simply logical to pair 29" wheels with larger bikes, and more proportional, better-fitting 27.5" wheels for smaller bikes. The trickle down technology of higher end bikes such as disc brakes is evident on the Rock Spring 2. The advantages of disc brakes can't be understated on a mountain bike. Tektro M275 hydraulic disc brakes not only improve power and modulation but they provide consistent braking in all conditions. Combined with an SR Suntour XCM with 100mm of travel and 2x9-Speed Shimano drivetrain, the Rock Spring is built to handle off road trails. What really sets the Rock Spring 2 apart from other entry level hardtails is the geometry. A steeper 74 degree seat angle, improves climbing efficiency, positioning you in a more upright, comfortable position. While the slack head angle of 68 degrees, short 45mm stem and wide 780mm bars, improves stability at speed and confidence when descending. Often understated is benefit of a low standover. The Rock Spring has one of the lowest standover measurements in the category, making the bike easier to handle for smaller riders, while making it easy to mount and dismount. If you are looking for a do it all bike, that is up to date with all the current trends and is trail ready at an affordable price than the Rock Spring 2 is for you.
