Surly finally had a batch of their Big Dummy framesets ready to ship about two weeks ago. We had been waiting to get two of them, one for Brent and another for one of our customers in Peninsula. They day they arrived at Surly was the first day of our Staff Retreat, so we missed getting them ordered in time before they sold out. Luckily, a couple more became available on Tues. Feb. 26, so we were able to snag a couple. They are all sold out again, and no more will be available until they do their next production run, which will not be until this August.
Brent got his built up right away; you can see more pictures as well as the full specifications on our Bike Gallery page.
Here's a video of him testing it out in our parking lot:
The folks at Surly, based outside Minneapolis, were interviewed about the bike on WCCO, one of their local TV stations. You can read the whole story and watch the video here.
