Command the Road in Style and Comfort! The Gran Tourismo is alluringly sophisticated with exhilarating performance resulting in the ultimate touring machine. With a nod to the original Tour, the GT is the culmination of over 20 years of continuous innovation and customer feedback, resulting in the most comfortable and best handling TerraTrike to date! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, TerraTrike has released the Gran Tourismo x16 and x20 packages in a Pink Edition. The pink GT will come with a TerraTrike flag extension and a special edition pink ribbon flag. Your purchase will help support the fight against breast cancer. TerraTrike will donate $15.00 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every Pink Gran Tourismo sold. The Y-frame design adds strength while allowing for additional heel clearance and ease in getting in and out. The new triangulated rear end adds pedaling efficiency, better aerodynamics, reduced pedal steer and lower center of gravity so that you "stick" to the road even at higher speeds. The GT also comes standard with a 24-inch rear wheel for higher top-end speeds, smoother rolling over bumps and retaining momentum. The Gran Tourismo also features an extended seat frame with an upgraded seat mesh, contoured to give additional support and comfort and padded in "all the right places!" This is by far the most comfortable seat TerraTrike has ever produced! The depth of the "wet" paint colors Sparkle Gold and Sky Blue are stunning, and limited edition colors will be offered periodically. The Gran Tourismo is the perfect trike for a cross-country adventure, your daily commute or a leisurely trail ride to your favorite destination.
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.
