Lamont, I'm Having the Big One...

Sir Jon Fleck, Esq. dropped by the Cykel Garage today with his newly assembled Surly Big Dummy. Damn, those things are cool, and it's just a matter of weeks before the 20" size arrives. And by 20" size I really mean "my" size. Ahem. But I digress. [edit: 20"s just arrived in stock at Qube Farm. Mine is ordered and will be picked up manana; woo-hoo!] This is Fleck's first foray into the longbike. He says he digs it, but that it took a boatload of Framesaver to coat those tubes. I believe him.

"Grady, pass me some more ripple..."

The pink Chris King headset is a nice touch, and adds a bit of color to the behemoth. "It's such a dark bike," sez Fleck. Is he talking about its soul?

A man and his machine.

Hot Damn!

I am on the way to the LBS to pick up mine today. I am pretty sure I won't have it assembled for a couple of weeks though. Sweet!

Just imagine clicking on this site and seeing Fleck in a Carhartt onezie and neon yellow vest!

It seems "X" marks the spot for Big Dummy parking in these here parts - for now at least.

OKay, so no disrespect to John, CRC, or-- godforbidit -- SUrly. But!

Why drive an El Camino when you could drive an F-150?

(Me, I'm a big fan of the standard Burley trailer.)
