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. For all the nuts and bolts of compatibility read Surly's blog on the subject.
Don't worry, we get it...your training buddies all think you're a bit "particular". You may or may not have stockpiled your favorite grips just in case they ever get replaced by a new model. Perhaps your trailside toolbox would make a quality control engineer blush. Whatever the case, you won't find any judgment here. Instead, the endlessly engineered S-Works Epic Frameset is here for you to let your discerning tastes run wild. We sweated every last detail when designing the S-Works frame, from an endlessly refined layup schedule that re-examined every last ply of FACT 12m carbon to optimize weight savings and ride dynamics, to the weight-shedding carbon shock link, all so that you focus on the rest, knowing that you're starting with the most capable canvas in the world. True to form, the latest Epic continues the tradition, taking advantage of the most efficient Brain suspension we've ever created to ensure it's always on a first-name-basis with fast. Re-engineered hand-in-hand with the new Epic, the latest BRAIN design resets the expectation for efficiency, employing a new race-tuned pedaling platform to ensure every watt possible is translated into forward motion, while handily soaking up momentum-killing chatter and big hits alike, all more smoothly than ever. Perfectly matched to the frame's BRAIN system, the S-Works Epic frameset's Position-Sensitive BRAIN fork benefits from RockShox's latest SID Ulitmate SL chassis for next-level steering stiffness that still manages to keep the gram count to a minimum. - If speed could talk, it'd introduce itself as the all-new S-Works Epic frame. Offering 100-millimeters of brilliantly efficient Brain-controlled travel, the S-Work Epic increases rear-triangle stiffness for peerless power transfer, while the use of FACT 12m carbon, a dedicated layup, and a full carbon shock link also make it the lightest full-suspension frame we've ever created, all while offering the most capable handling in an Epic yet. Nice to meet you, speed. - Pairing 100 millimeters of the most efficient travel on earth with RockShox's svelte-yet-stiff SID SL Ultimate chassis, the RockShox SID SL Ultimate BRAIN fork serves as the pinnacle of XC-race suspension perfection.

It's time to recalibrate your gray matter with what's happening in racing today. All it takes is "it's on!"—number plates not required. Born to naturally crush the climbs, the SB115 is evolved. Deft on the downs. Designed to race. Built to rally. A Lighter Switch Short-travel specific design of Switch Infinity, turned 90 degrees and optimized for lighter weight and efficiency. More Than Added Travel Crushing souls on the descent is more than half the fun. And a hell of a lot more than half the point. The SB115 has 115 genre-killing millimeters of travel, that work harder than ever before. 100% Anti-Squat Longer-Travel Setup, No Downside We custom tune the shock on every Yeti to compliment Switch Infinity's unique characteristics. Unlike other "short-travel" trail bikes, the SB115's suspension performs best even when set up with sag numbers (30%) akin to much longer travel bikes. We don't leave it to someone else to make every millimeter of the SB115's suspension travel count.
The rebel yell of the middle child. Fed a steady diet of super-tech climbs. The SB130 was built to crush the biggest terrain. No trail "too" anything. Point it up or down. Enter a last-minute enduro just for the eff of it. We say no one bike can rule all. But the SB130? One bike that rules. The SB130 possesses a distinct, big mountain feel for riders constantly exposed to uncharted terrain. - Long reach—Puts riders in a balanced position perfectly centered on the bike, ready to tackle the unknown. - 150mm fork—Because our 130mm of rear suspension outperforms similarly stroked forks and pairs well with our more forward-biased position. - Front end doesn't wanter climbing and stays composed when pointed downhill—the rider position remains neutral. Low Slung, Long Drop Long stroke dropper post capability throughout the entire size range for greater agility. At home When You're Not The deeper you go, the higher you climb, the later you brake, the more comfortable SB130 becomes. Bottom line, the term "trail bike" gets used pretty liberally at Yeti. Balance, Achieved Refined for the unknown and everything in between the SB130's Switch Infinity provides a more progressive ride without affecting the anti-squat properties. Silence is TURQ Internally routed cable tubes from end to end for silent function and less translation of housing during suspension movement.
Some say the SB140 never met a dirt it didn’t like. We agree in spades. What’s your pleasure? Drag a bar. Make an edit. Stay out after dark. Try it. Land it. Or just stay at it. Happy to pedal. Greedy for more. The mayor of jibtown, proudly wearing the rip crown. The SB140. Down to fun.
"Race bred"—it’s not just a slogan printed on the SB150 top tube. We’ve been pinning on numbers and pinning the throttle since 1985. Designed for shorter fork offsets, the SB150s headtube angle is slackened and the seat tube angle is way steeper. The reach is also longer with shorter chainstays. Advantage? All of these elements increase the DH prowess and move the rider forward on the bike. But these advantages are not one-sided. The steeper seat angle, short fork offset, and forward riding position also keep the front wheel on the ground, the power to the pedals, and the steering quick and nimble when climbing. - Forward bias posture—Gives racers the room they need, and centers them on the bike. - 20mm longer travel fork—Pairs well with our forward-biased frame matching the vertical wheel travel of the rear suspension. - Slacker headtube—Lower bottom bracket and longer wheelbase. - Tested to DH standards—High-impact strength carbon lay-up tuned to go fast and tested to DH standards.
