    Tons of fun, I don't haul humans so my 25-50lbs. usual cargo is pleasant and she is a blast with no load, no one ever talks about the great unloaded handling and fun.....I'm 6'1" 265lbs. so I feel proportionate on this bike.....I don't ride the bkakes anymore on fast decents....it's way more secure feeling......looking to road trip and backcountry with this rig eventually............Cheers!

    Winter Dummy

    I wasnt sure I could justify getting this bike as I thought I was only going to use it to get dog food and run a few errands. It has become my almost daily commuter and the long wheelbase makes it very stable for the winter.

    Surly Troll w/ Custom Surly Trailer - Worlds first folding Heavy duty trailer

    Good Morning Transporters,

    I have been away for far too long, but I bring super cool news and updates. First is the Newish Cargo bike.

    The Surly Troll 18" fitted with a Trek Police groupset
    (Which means 3x8 speed and Silent clutch hubs!)

    Check out the photo - this is Rev.1
    Post Pics of your Cargo Bike-troll.jpg

    This is Rev.2 After, I added the front cargo rack.
    Post Pics of your Cargo Bike-picture-424.jpg

    After 18 months of riding, and using it for everything from daily shopping, to loaded touring to full hauling - it has proven a nearly indispensable bike for being able to live via only two wheels.

    However, When you need something more - You might as well go all the way. Introducing the worlds first folding heavy duty utility trailer. This has proven over the last year an incredible addition to any cargo bike.

    Here the trailer is in "Long Mode" with me bringing my wife trike into get checked.

    Here the Trail is in "Short Mode" making a run to the tire store for trailer tires.

    Absolutely indispensable.

    I will post a full review on the trailer soon. Maybe even an instructable.

    Cheers!

    Sun Atlas in Costco mode

    I have had my Atlas cargo for about 3 years (10k on bike) now and couldn't be more happy. She is my daily driver, child transporter, super camper, chicken food hauling machine. You couldn't get more for your money as far as I am concerned. Having had hundreds of bikes, so weird to say this one is the funnest thing I have ever had.

    And with the sidecar attachment. I plan on using it mainly for larger loads but my kids & hubby already are vying for a seat on it...so I think it might get used a lot more than I expected but mainly for entertainment

    I have a 45T chainring, 9 speed 11-34 cassette. Motor drive gear is 20T mated to a jackshaft 16T freewheel and on the drive gears for the rear wheel are 16T freewheel and 16T fixed gear both our together with an adapter. The front cranks doesn't move when motor is turning. This system is not the same as how stoke monkey works. Pedals and motor assist are totally independent from each other. Top speed with 48V pack is 30mph on flat terrain and can still climb the steepest Hills I can find in my area.

    I ride a vintage BMW sidecar rig and the sidecar is on the right side of the bike, other Big Dummy's I have saw the sidecar is on the right side, in the USA. With no disrespect, I was wondering why you have the sidecar on the left side of the bike? I really like riding my sidecar rig and a sidecar rig on a Big Dummy would be fun!

    Just put my xtracycle on a frame that fits me. I love the way these things ride. Having it on a big enough bike makes a world of difference too.

    They(Xtracycle) suggest using it on the non-drive side first while learning to use it. I have no opinion one way or another but not having it by the chain for mounting & dismounting with kids & cargo is fine with me. So I don't know if I would change it even after getting used to the feel of riding with it. I ride it mainly on 11ft wide separated city trails so I am not really concerned so much with traffic/road stuff once I get out of the grocery store parking lot.

    Thanks for cleaning that up. Not sure why they would say to put use it on the non drive side to get used to it? I guess though it would be easier to work on the chain being on the non drive side, something I hadn't thought about.

    Made a few changes...

    Replaced crankset with a triple. Still no front de-railer(RIP Sheldon)


    So I carry an organic front de-railer on my bars for quick access. Inspired by Grant Petersen.


    I also rigged a system to carry my Ortleibs with the regular V-racks. I wanted to secure them to the bike a bit more than just putting them in the xtra bags so I fabricated some attachment points for the pannier hooks that are at least as high tech as my organic front de-railer.

    I haven't been around here so much lately,haven't been cargo biking much since the move just over a year ago. A month or so ago,I pulled my Trek/Xtracycle apart and started rebuilding the Trek as a period mtn bike (well,I started looking for parts,LOL,haven't turned a wrench on it yet-it's a 2000 6000),mainly brought on because I needed the build kit off of it to build up a new Surly Troll frame/fork.

    Well....even though I don't have op to utilize it much like before th emove here,I missed having the Xtracycle,and having recently picked up a 1996 Specialized Hard Rock in clean condition (a bit too big for me with a Large/21" frame...I'm a Medium frame size guy),I got bored over the weekend and started a putting it together...


    It's not top tier on the priority list (not having much use for it living here,at least for now),but I have a finished build in my head that won't go away already (which will hopefully include those nifty new bags,and a pair of Wide Loaders),so it will happen,LOL
