More photos of the Surly Big Dummy long bike have been popping up, the latest on the clever chimp blog.

Some other good images at the surly blog, especially here.
I think I have enough bike detritus to sell that I should be able to cover this as an addition to the fleet (in addition to the other possible planned hauling bike, more later). I was in Santa Fe yesterday and stopped by the cool lbs and confirmed they can order one for us. They even called QBP to get the dope. July maybe August maybe more. OK, I can wait. I am guessing that a late summer arrival means I will have it rolling by next winters storms.
If you are confused as to the purpose of said bike, see what snaps onto the bike at Xtra Cycle and some uses of it over on sconnyboy, here and here, or just google image search xtracycle.
Glahg, dummy, drooool.
Earlier last year I was planning to get a 29'er front end from Kelly Bike's final inventory and to build my own longtail as a project, but the reality of torch storage and time balanced poorly against the announcement of the big dummy at interbike last year, so Big Dummy ahoy.
