    Big Fat Dummy + Yepp

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if this Yepp Seat Adapter fits the Surly Big Dummy?

    Link to Yepp Adapter


    (I saw the post where a user had welder their own - very cool - but wondering if there are any plug and play options)

    Thanks in advance

    I had one of these on my 2012 Big Dummy, and it fit just fine. Absolutely loved the Yepp seat. That said, the 2012 came with the Xtracycle deck, not the metal Surly one. I don't see any reason to expect that it wouldn't fit on the Surly model, though. It just bolts onto the deck, and the seat attaches from there.

    It should fit but I did see someone on another cargo forum saying that the front of the metal deck was too wide to allow the feet of the Yepp to sit properly.

    Ok so I was in nearly the exact situation.

    2016 Surly Big Dummy.

    I bought that yepp maxi rack and ended up tossing it.

    I instead got the xtracycle " FlightDeck LT1 - Version 2 (no SuperHooks) "

    Ordered the full compliment of super hooks and the surly rail collars(4)

    It keeps the seat just a bit lower which I like better. Also gives you the ability to get the big hooptie from xtracycle when you are ready.

    I can get the seat in and out pretty easy. It does take away a bit of the functionality of the bags as it pinches them in a bit but once you get the hang of it you can get the seat in and out in about 30 seconds each time.
