    Post your Big Dummy!

    I can't believe this thread didn't already exist.

    I'll start: Mine is a 2009 Big Dummy with a few little upgrades (FlightDeck, Brooks Saddle, Surly Open Bar). An incredible bike!

    More information here: A Magnificent Machine: My Dummy and Me. Also, more pics on my blog (link in my signature).

    Post your Dummy!

    Here's mine. Maiden voyage to the store. Items for tonight's dinner and a few days of supplies. Hardly made a dent in all the room. I love my Dummy!

    Relatively new cargo biker here - I have owned my '11 dummy since March and loved every minute of it.

    PScal -- Nice Dummy! Is that a CETMA rack? How do the Ergons feel on the H-Bar?

    Thanks for the compliment! The rack is a CETMA HalfRack. It is great for carrying pizza and packages when I make post office runs. The rack was originally bought for a Jamis Commuter 3, and carried over when I upgraded to the dummy. I can't say enough good things about the versatility of the HalfRack. I feel like since I got the big dummy I don't utilize it enough because the freeloaders get loaded by default. However, it's definitely staying on the bike for pizza runs and to act as the occasional foot prop.

    I love the ergons + H Bar. These were also carryover items from my old bike and I've been extremely pleased with them. I had to chop about 1cm off of each grip to give room for the shifters due to the limited real estate on the H bar, but that was not a big deal at all. There is a lot of synergy with the dummy, H Bar, and ergons. The riding position is just perfect for me.

    Hey MB2, great looking BD. I look at pictures like that and get so jealous. Seems like a great bike for camping. I'll hopefully get out next week on my LHT for some bike camping on the Clackamas River (OR).
