The Sun Seeker Fat Tad CX is the most fun you’ll have this low to the ground, off-road. This bad boy is equipped with front and rear suspension, chromoly frame, plus 4-inch wide off-road tires! The Fat Tad will handle sand and gravel like no other trike out there. Shifting is smooth with SRAM drivetrain components and 3x8 gearing while reliable, all-weather braking is provided by the Promax mechanical disc brake up front. Other features include an aluminum seat frame, air-mesh padded seat, and provisions to mount four water bottle cages. - X-Seam range: 37 – 50.5 inches
Sun Seeker's X3-AX features 3 wheels so you enjoy a go-cart feel and don't even have to put a foot down at stops. Plus, its light aluminum frame has plenty of get-up-and-go and handles like a dream, while the long wheelbase means a stable, predictable ride at even maximum speed. Complementing the great frame are three 20-inch wheels with quality tires and dual rear disc brakes for total control. You'll also love the comfy, highly adjustable mesh seat and the easy ergonomic handlebar position. You get reliable Shimano, SRAM, and Promax components for braking and shifting excellence too.
The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ol' spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations.
