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.

The Brompton Electric folding bike is the most compact electric folding bike available. The electric assist system provides power to flatten out the hills and increase your speed while still allowing you to enjoy all the benefits that riding a bicycle provides. After years of planning and design, Brompton was able to achieve a lightweight electric bike without increasing the folded size that Brompton is famous for. Brompton’s electric assist system was designed in partnership with the Williams Advanced Engineering Team, who combined their technical Formula One and Formula E knowledge to develop an electric bike motor that meets the complex demands of a Brompton. The Brompton Electric iPhone app will allow you to customize your ride settings and track your mileage while the smart sensor tells the motor when to provide assist. Ride into the wind or up hills with ease. The 300Wh battery provides energy to maintain 15 MPH with a range of between 25 to 50 miles from a single charge and also has an integrated display to select four different power assist options. The range of the Brompton Electric is dependent on the user output, assist level settings, and conditions of the ride, such as wind and hills. The battery (2.9kg) separates with one click from the lightweight electric bike (13.7kg) making it easy to carry. The compact fold of the Brompton Electric allows you store it safely inside your home or workplace, where theft is less likely. The Brompton Electric bike is available with either a gloss black or gloss white frame, with an option of either two or six speeds, and two handlebar height options -- either a M type or H type (more upright) riding position. There are also three different seatpost options depending on rider height. The standard Brompton Electric charger that comes with the bike is a 2A charger. Charge time is approximately 4.5 hours to get to full charge. The optional 4A fast charger reduces the charge time to approximately 2.5 hours. All of Brompton Electric bikes come with the standard battery bag, which has a pocket to fit your essentials or your charger. There is an optional commuter battery bag available that has room for your larger items like a laptop, as well as the power supply and other items. A Fork-crown mounted headlamp is powered by the 300Wh 36V battery.
