512: Anon Xtracycle

Editors note: A great specimen. Who sent me this? It came through without a name.

511: Alex's Xtracycle

What happens when you get 5 mm of rain on Red Clay in South Australia. The extra clearance on my big dummy meant it was the only bike not stopped by the mud (Rohloff drive train helped too!)

510: Nick's Xtracycle

My big monster X on a camping trip earlier this summer. Southern 'burbs to Red Wing MN.

Built around the orange Surly 1x1, free rad painted to match. I'm also running some Large Marges with Maxxis Hookworm 2.5. 26" in the front and 24" in the back with an 8 speed Alfine gearhub.

My other bikes are surely jealous.

A photo of The Packet Boat (my Xtracycle) in front of the New York State Capitol. I set the camera's white balance on my Down Low Glow lights, which caused the cool color of the photo.

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.
