|An unusual January devoid of snow meant this bike got some riding time.|
I don't talk a lot about this bike on the blog, but it gets pulled out fairly often for service around here. More like a "tool" than a bike I'd ride for just the joys of cycling, but that said, it's a fun bike.
The Big Dummy gets used mostly as a recycling rig. I've hauled hundreds of pounds of cardboard, plastic, and glass to get recycled with this rig. It's fun, and a great excuse to get out and ride on days when I have "other duties" to attend to. Ya know......like mowing, washing clothes, cleaning the house. Non-cycling related responsibilities I tend to neglect due to riding my other bikes.
So, when this one gets pulled out it is a great day for knocking out the recycling and other duties I need to accomplish around the G-Ted Headquarters. There could be a case made that it is too fancy for a garbage skow! But it gets looks wherever I o and it rides really well. And I have used it to aul home stuff sent to me for review on RidingGravel.com.
As for changes on this rig over the past year, there haven't been any, but I did use the sideloaders once this year. That was the first time I had done that on this rig. The "sideloaders" are the extensions on the sides of the cargo area which enable you to load bigger objects down lower alongside the bike. I used them for some big pieces of cardboard I wanted to recycle.
Look for more "Bikes Of 2018" coming soon......
