A Versatile All-Season Commuter Bike If you're like us, your bike needs likely change by the day, week, month, or year. Quite the adaptable little beast, Ogre can get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. It's not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. Ogre is designed to be the ultimate steel utility vehicle. It relishes in those "take-the-long-way-home-and-find-some-beverages-along-the-way" sort of commutes. Snow, sleet, or sweltering humidity, this is an ideal year-round commuter bike. You can also haul enough crap on it that you don't even have to go home if you don't want to. - All the barnacles you could ever possibly ask for including rack and fender, multiple three-pack mounts, and mid-blade. - Gnot-Boost rear spacing with Rohloff torque arm slot and Bill/Ted trailer mount - Clearance for 29 x 2.5" or 27.5 x 2.8" tires with fenders
Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it’s stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it’s made of size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you’ve come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it’s loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The included Dummy Rail Collars provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system so you can safely carry a passenger.
