    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.

    Post Pics of your Cargo Bike-picture-065.jpg

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

    Post Pics of your Cargo Bike-picture-592.jpg
    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.

    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

    56cm Long Haul Trucker (700C) with a newly-installed FreeRadical and Yepp Maxi seat-post mounted child carrier for my 10-month-old son. Rear tire is a 700x35C Panaracer Pasela TG and it just barely clears the FR in the front and rear. probably 1/2 - 1cm at either end. have not bothered to check clearance from tech deck, but it's probably not much different.

    Front tire is a 28x2.0 Schwalbe Fat Frank that I originally intended to swap out for a Pasela but honestly I'm finding the added cush up front helps smooth out the ride. So much frame flex out back that the 35C rear tire doesn't feel like that much of a compromise.

    When I picked up the LHT frame back in 2011 I don't think Surly had revised their offerings to include 26" wheels and/or disc brakes across the line, but if I could do it over again I'd take both options. 26" wheels give you so many more options, especially with the FR.

    Rear hub is a SRAM X9 MTB hub with a disc adaptor, so I'm thinking I may add cable disc brakes next summer. I cashed in all of my marriage goodwill points for this and I get the impression that I still owe a few more

    Swapped out cantis for v-brakes in the rear and added a travel agent for compatibility with my road brake levers. I'm very satisfied with stopping performance - this setup is wildly better than cantis, even with 2 extra feet of cable out back. Some say the best rear brake setup is hydraulic disc but I just don't see a compelling reason yet to to justify it.

    I'm just sad that there won't be any more wheelies at my house until my son gets a bit older...

    I am going through this because I think I need a cargo bike to use at the cabin. despite the great things I read about the Yuba Mundo, there sure seems to be a lot of pics of BD's here. Either they are more popular or the BD guys just like to take pics of their rig.

    I believe the Big Dummy has a little better component spec than the Mundo and I'm sure is a little (maybe a lot) lighter. The Yuba, though, is designed to carry much more weight, if you can pedal it! I believe my Yuba claims I can haul 440#'s of cargo plus the rider vs 440#'s (rider and cargo) on the Big Dummy. That is still a bunch of cargo. My wife has health issues and can't pedal her own bike, so for us the Yuba seemed a better option for me to carry an adult around town on the back of the bike. Except for steep hills, I and the Yuba, have no problems doing so. It is a great bike and I have had zero issues with it. I'm sure the BD is a fantastic bike, as well, and probably is slightly easier pedaling due to less weight. Just my rambling thoughts. :-)

    Wow, Do you have more info? Looks good. How is the torsional stiffness of the main bamboo beam? did you cure and treat the bamboo yourself?

    Here is the chronicle of the build.

    Torsional stiffness of the whole bike, loaded, is good until you get over 200lbs in the cargo bay. At which point I forgive it for being a bit flexible. It still behaves fine with that much weight in the basket. The bamboo is springy and feels wonderful with 100lb loads (2 kids).

    I cured the bamboo but I did not heat treat.

    Nice! I've been dreaming of one of these since I saw my first fat bike 5 or 6 years ago. I can't wait to see the Mark 2 when it is finished.

    Did the Filthy 50 gravel race on my dummy. I was a terrible idea. I read somewhere online that bike weight only matters when climbing but I think after 52 miles and 3k feet of climbing I disagree.Post Pics of your Cargo Bike-21495620553_48065d5d53_b.jpg
    The pic was from the start of the race. I barely saw anyone after that.

    i had been in the back of my mind thinking of welding one of these together and then while checking craigslist happened on one for super cheap. the guy had welded it himself mad max style, but the price was right and i believe it will be pretty bullet proof. currently i have it apart being painted. after that i will be replacing the plastic tote with wood sides. super stoked for this.

    Looks pretty nice. Hopefully, you can get that handlebar higher so you don't smack your kid with the bars.

    I like the hoop over the front wheel. Much better use of space compared to other cargo bikes such as Cetma, Metrofiet, etc. Would be a great place to strap a basket.

    I use a bag now instead of the basket as that got in the way of the cables and overhung the front too much.
    Just finished the platform the other night. The rings are for where the bag clips into

    Home Made Cargo Bike Known as (the GREEN MACHINE)

    I am the owner of Prowheelbuilder.com. Our store is only 1.5 miles away from the post office. I grew tired of driving my truck once and sometimes trice daily to deliver packages. This seemed like a waist of time, gas and it was an unnecessary burden on our environment. So I decided to build a trailer and then a cargo bike. I have added a Bafang pedal assist motor kit and ran a Shimano Alfine 11 speed hub. Now I use this not only as cargo bike but also as a car substitute and it works great.

    Green Machine

    I am reposting this since I apparently deleted my original post when I responded to a comment (still new to the whole forums thing):
    I built this cargo bike to haul packages to the post office which is only 1.5 miles away from our shop. However it has now become a car substitute and is used to grab groceries, commute to and from work and run general errands. With the addition of the Bafang 1000w pedal assist motor I am able to wear what ever I want and not kill myself with very heavy loads. Here are some stats on both the trailer and cargo bike:
    1. Unassisted speed on flat ground 32mph
    2. Bike weight 68 lbs
    3. Rider weight 205 lbs
    4. Max weight carried cargo bike 400 lbs
    5. Max weight carried trailer 600 lbs
    6. Max distance covered on a single charge at mid level assist rolling terrain 20 mi
    7. Max distance covered on a single charge at max level assist rolling terrain 10 mi
    8. Drive train is Shimano Alfine 11 speed
    9. Budget: The main frame was purchased used $100.00 which I re utilized the main triangle and the drop outs, fork was a Surly $100.00, the seamed steel I had from a former project but I would say was worth about $125.00 the seat post / saddle / brakes / hubs / bars / stems / head set / grips and rubber $875.00 or so, the Bafang motor kit with crank / BB / and battery was $1280.00, powder coating $190.00 and then a miscellaneous budget of $200. This brings it to an estimated total of $2870.00

    Response to the cargo box comment: Thank you. It has proved very useful. My next plan is to have some custom nylon bags made up to hang inside the out riggers frame below the surface of the bed (sort of time panniers). These will accommodate, items such as groceries, envelopes and other non strapable items. Currently I have to carry a plastic tub strapped down to carry these items which is a pain and requires foresight.

    Yuba Mundo kid and grocery electric assist frame up project

    I would appreciate some ideas on refabricating the monkey bars at the saddle end to eliminate the issues if someone shorter needs to ride. Also looking at a aluminum battery box to replace the temporary cloth bag. Thanks

    Hauling tools for trail maintenance solution, help, ideas....

    I made this post over on the Trail Building forum as I am looking for a solution to haul some tools for trail maintenance. Since this thread might have some experienced ideas on what might work for me, I thought I would post it here as well in hopes I get some feedback, ideas, and guidance.

    Tool carrier beta

    Some great ideas in this thread.

    I need to haul a weed whacker, chainsaw, 1 or 2 gallon jug of gas, hedge clippers, leaf blower, throughout a trail system. Not all at once, but at least two or three of those items at a time. Sure it's nice to hike in and out each section of 7 mile loop from various points, but having a bike that could haul what I need would be easier.

    The good news is, the trail system is in a State Park where I volunteer to do trail work and the majority of it is doubletrack, so I don't need to worry about navigating through tight and twisty. It's more about convenience of hauling multiple tools throughout to be more productive on a trail work day as opposed to hiking in and out with one or two tools at a time.

    My options - or at least what I am thinking about at the moment:

    Purchase a dedicated Surly Big Dummy and design a box to attach to haul what I need.

    Convert an old Cannondale MTB 800 tandem (which currently is hanging in the garage not being used) into a long haul trucker.

    Mine is green (not yellow like the one shown in the picture) and fits me up front as the front end is size XL (rear is size small) and set up with a rigid fork, typical mountain bike bars, and a triple chainring with an 11-34 rear cassette so I would be able to spin up the hills hauling gear.



    I did locate a company called LOKO who appear to have a product in development, but sounds like you have to pre-order and they only produce once they have 1000+ pre-orders. I've tried to contact them several times to get information on the rack to convert a tandem into a cargo bike, but have never received any reply. Sounds like this option may not exist.

    However, I could probably find somebody in my local area to make something for me - or I could DIY some sort of a box/rack/mount to haul what I need on the back of the tandem conversion.

    I don't think the BOB trailer will work with what I want to haul, but was curious for any suggestions and help in figuring out a solution to be able to haul something as long as a weed whacker, jug of fuel, and another tool or two all on the same trip.

    I do have a rooftop tandem tray to haul the bike to and from the State Park - so at least that part of the issue of getting the work bike to and from the location is solved.

    TIA!

    I have owned two Xtracycles and a Big Dummy. I've hauled all the items you've mentioned and then some. The Xtracycle bags will easily carry everything you're trying to carry. The only issue was the weed eater was a little long. I had found two of these on the curb that someone was throwing out and snatched them up so I didn't really mess around with setting up a custom mount for them. But it would be easy enough to do with some lumber and p-clamps.

    Maybe it would be worth selling the tandem to fund your Big Dummy. I'm not sure where Xtracycle is with their Leap production these days but it looked a little beefier than the old Freerad, though I never really had an issue with the rear swaying around like a lot of people did. Also it can be transported in the tandem roof rack.

    I vote for Xtracycle any day. They make a good product that works when you need it.

    bob trailer

    I have a yuba mundo I built up but wouldn't want gas , oil and bar oil ect messing up my grocery kid getter. I prefer my mountain bike /bob trailer combo with a piece of card board on the bottom of the bob. The trailer sides make it easy to attach and tie down tools/jerry-cans, ect..... just my two cents

    The Bob looks too small to haul the longer tools. I guess I could fabricate something to mount the tools to or in the Bob. All I have to pull it is a singlespeed as I don't want to use my race bikes. That might be a grunt on the hills.

    The tandem I have available to possibly convert - will not be used for any family cycling again - hence the conversion. Loops like the LEAP would set me back $999 or more, but I don't have a bike to convert for the LEAP.

    Looks like a Surly Big Dummy would be over $2K as well.

    That's why I thought it might be worth it to try and fabricate some sort of tandem bike pick-up type of rack and box bed to haul the tools.

    bontrager cargo panniers

    Sounds like you have looked into just hanging things off the tandem, I just picked a pair of bontrager cargo bags up for 60 dollars delivered and they are huge ! I think they are on close out since Trek isn't making their cargo bike anymore? On my Yuba I added some runner boards but there was already framing to lay wood on. This allowed the panniers to both sit and hang when loaded down.

    I can load four very full grocery bags easily into these babies and love the fact that they buckle flat when not in use. The clips on the top are a little small for my tubing but are bolted through and could be modified/ replaced easily.

    A quick search on converting tandems to a cargo... maybe you have already seen this.

    Good suggestions. I am going to investigate a bit more what i could possibly do. I do have a custom made pull behind kid's recumbent bike (attaches to my seatpost) that is low to the ground, long and might be a better option to haul the tools as it can attach to any bike. I'll post up a picture later today. Not sure panniers would be good for hauling these...

This brings it to an estimated total of $2870.00

    Response to the cargo box comment: Thank you. It has proved very useful. My next plan is to have some custom nylon bags made up to hang inside the out riggers frame below the surface of the bed (sort of time panniers). These will accommodate, items such as groceries, envelopes and other non strapable items. Currently I have to carry a plastic tub strapped down to carry these items which is a pain and requires foresight.
    That is a great design. You should put it into production. I would have strongly considered something like it over the big dummy had it been an option.

    That bike is RAD! Seems like a good design, not to big/heavy still capable of hauling a lot. Good color too.

    Virgin Island Electric Cargo Bike

    Here’s a new bicycle build for 2017 to replace a small truck on St Thomas Island. It has full time lighting and cell-phone charging station, a 1000Watt electric motor capable of climbing the highest island hills with ease and a comfy passenger seat. The drive-train is a Sram 11 speed using an 11-42t cassette modified to an 11-50t. With the small front narrow/wide 30t chainring, this bike has massive torque for hill climbing even with a substantial load.

    Xtracycle Leap is finally Here



    A brand new build utilizing the new Xtracycle bolt-on kit (Leap) replacement for the venerable (discontinued) Free Radical. This kit is stronger, stiffer and well thought out and should be a game changer in the world of long-tail bikes.

    Shown here on a generic 29er 1x10, 11-42 Cassette, 203/180 Rotors, Avid BB7 Mechanical Disc Brakes

    Many congratulations, you've got the Fat Dummy looking really nicely setup. Interested to hear your thoughts once you get a few miles in.
    Happy trails

    Ditto.

    That has to be one of the coolest bikes ever. As far as I know, the Big Fat Dummy is one of only two production bikes in the world that can handle 3XL tires.

    I love the truck bed! how exactly is it attached to the frame? Is there an insert to prevent things from falling out the back or do you just bungee stuff down?

    AWD (2 motors) E-Bike for the Caribbean

    I decided to add an additional two speed front hub motor with ultra low gear for hill climbing. This bike charges up radically steep hills with a full load at 12mph without even getting warm. On the flats it does 35mph. Full build specs available here Xtracycle Leap Custom Bikes ? Longtail Cargo Bicycles for the Caribbean

    Hi jamie, nice hauler you got there, was wondering your thoughts on a endomorph on the rear of a normal big dummy-if I was to switch my drivetrain over to something like an ALFINE 8sp internal unit and get rid of the cogs do you think one would fit ok back there? Or would there still not be enuff clearance. Thanks for your thoughts

    Hi mate
    I 'm just seeing this just now otherwise I would have replied earlier. The Endomorph won't fit in the back, the spacing is too narrow and not long enough as the brace across the rear limits the size. I run a 2.5 hookworm onn the back on a 65mm rim, using an Alfine 8 as well and it's definately very tight, no gaurds/fenders and there is about a cigarette paper clearance.
    I replied on Flickr if I remember rightly. Will get some other pics for you tomorrow evening.

    New Jones Plus Cargo Bike

    Here are pictures of my freshly built Jones Plus Cargo bike awaiting delivery to my house. I also have the packs and wide loaders not shown in the pictures but will be installed upon delivery along with the Bafang BBSHD motor.

    It has the Xtracycle LEAP extension with a 1x10 Shimano drive train, Jones H- Bars & fenders by Big O Manufacturing. I was anxious to get some eye candy up till the rest of the build is done, enjoy!

    I am very interested in Blackborow as a winter/more stable cargo bike that can be used as a “touring” bike. However, the more I look into it, I find several limitations - 50 kg back cargo capacity, warning not to carry “live” cargo and mechanical disc brakes. I have read that the bike will not be available until November.

    I would take the live cargo bit with a grain of salt as all of the QBP products say that, the Dummy, Fat Dummy etc. More for insurance liability I believe.
