This Surly Big Dummy cargo bike is one tough, load-toting, grocery-getting, errand-running, impressive specimen of a bike. Pure and simple, it hauls stuff, and does so sturdily and efficiently.
Extended and sturdy 4130 chromoly steel frame offers the strength and smooth handling associated with steel while capably hauling you and your cargo
Surly Mr. Whirly triple cranks are matched up with Shimano SLX derailleurs and LX shifters to create a smooth, easily shiftable drivetrain with 27 cargo-hauling gears
Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes are outfitted with sizeable 185mm rotors to ensure dependable stopping power, even when transporting heavy loads
26 in. Salsa Gordo rims are laced onto 36-hole Surly New Model and Shimano LX with DT Swiss 2.0 straight-guage spokes for super-stout, supportive rolling performance
Schwalbe Big Apple tires are excellent all-around city tires, featuring a protective layer to deter mood-deflating flats; 2 in. tire width promotes stability and sure handling
Xtracycle cargo hauling system includes the Snapdeck, V-racks and the Freeloader bags for a complete, load-managing setup, big and small

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
