491: The talented Mr.E and his customized Surly Big Dummy

This island-dweller's initials should be DIY.

Super-nice guy, father of three, Mr. E has been asking me about El Tonto Grande for a while. After careful consideration, a test ride on my bike, and discussing such an investment with the wife, he placed an order for a Dummy of his own a month ago.

He rode it home a week and a half later, and has since been back to show me his mods. The light mount and the running boards are just the beginning.

This bike's primary role is minivan. Mr. E tells me he has little need to drive now.

More to come from this crafty dude.

490: Sailorman007's Big Dummy

Twins in Switzerland ! Temps are too hot for some babies -- and the seats don't help.

The rear child seat is held on with four hose clamps -- don't tell mom.
