Nice write up on the Surly website,
http://www.surlybikes.com/spew19.html

It contains this gem.
"Remember to load the kickstand side of the bike first and unload the non-kickstand side first, so the bike doesn’t tip over. Read that last sentence two more times."

Who wants to bet that was written by someone who learned it the hard way?

"Big Dummy production is now complete. Thanks to the long ass frame, longer than a tandem, it totally clogged production at the frame and paint shops. As soon as they're boxed up and shipped, they'll be on their way to our warehouse. So we should have them in stock around mid-February."
I wonder how big the first run is?

Xtracycle said they'll have 58 to sell. How that figured was reached I don't know.

Good, with that out of the way, maybe they can hurry and crank out my olive green LHT.
