Do you really think there's a chance you're going to ever haul 200+ pounds on a bike? That would definitely be impressive! I'm currently longing for a Salsa Fargo. Seems to have more than enough carrying capacity for anything I would ever do.

The Big Dummy is on my list of toys one day when I got the shop to work on it and the money to buy it LOL :D

I am currently riding a Salsa Ala Carte with the Xtracycle Free Radical long tail kit. I love long tail bikes. I have been interested in the BD for some time now & just purchased one used online yesterday. One reason for going ahead and getting one is I need the larger 22in frame this one has. My Ala Carte is a 20in with EVERYTHING raised to the max. Long tail bikes are just plain FUN. It's great carrying loads and passengers, But besides that they are just plain fun. Oh I said that already...Be careful, If you ride a long tail for any period of time you may never go back.

Oh yeah, If you wonder what BD owners think about their rigs. Try finding an used one for sale... The one I found ,the guy NEEDED MONEY...
