    Big Dummy fun parts bin build.

    Over the past two summers I built up extra fat bikes for fun from the parts bin. The first was a Soma Sandworm and last year it was a Ritchey Commando. I've been wanting an xtracyle freeradical for years to mount up to my trusty klunker Trek 930. Unable o find one locally (Anchorage) I set out to buy a Surly Big Dummy.
    I will be swapping over the parts off the Trek.

    Currently it is 1x9 with Shimano XT, Middleburn Cranks, White Ind. Hubs, Mavic 212 SUP, King and Thompson bits, MKS Sylvan pedals, Brooks B-67, Defiance Frameworks Arise bars, Schwalbe Big Apples 2.3, XT canti-brakes. Not sure if I want to put a Rohloff and the SON Dynomo yet. Those will have to be laced up. I also have for the winter months some Schwalbe Icespikers or Nokian Freddiez Revenz tires on Snowcat 44mm rims on LX hubs.

    That should be awesome when you get it all together. I do like my Kona Ute on gravel (mostly rail trails)! The spikey tires are something I have always wanted to try, but when it snows we like to ski and snowboard.
    I have seen some bikes where they can charge their phones from the dynamo which would occasionally be a huge benefit!

    I got the SON Dynamo and Sinewave Led and USB charger on my Fatback. It works ok at the slow speeds of a fat bike but nice not having to have batteries on long winter backcountry tours.

    I got the bike rolling now with everything but the brake levers and cables installed. Next I need to figure out if I want to make the rack kit or buy the Surly Dummy kit. I'm going to have Chugach Snow Tools build the deck they make downhill skis and longboard skateboards in Homer Alaska. I also have many custom bag makers here in AK that can help on the bags.
