Wednesday is a frame with a decade of Surly's Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. Wednesday can ride over the same type of pretty much anything all of their other Omniterra bikes can, but they borrowed elements from both their Trail and Touring categories to create an Omniterra ride that can truly handle anything you want to attempt. Want to point the thing down a mountain and roll those dice? Wednesday has geometry spry enough to get you through the techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish when you have to ride back to the top. It also has the chops for any sort of expedition you may want to undertake. It has plenty of bottle mounts; triple bottle bosses on both fork legs and the down tube; standard bottle mounts on the seat tube and underside of the down tube; plus rack mounts on the frame and fork and fender eyelets on the dropouts, along with barrel bosses on the crown, fork legs and mid-blade, thru-blade eyelets on the fork as well. It also has internal dropper post routing and Surly Trip Guides to manage all the housing and cables on your frame with style. Wednesday also has its very own dropout design as well – a rear-facing, slotted dropout that can use either 10mm or 12mm axles and exit rearward or vertically. They’re cast steel and spaced at 170/177mm. Wednesday gives you a lot of options in the tire clearance category. In the full-forward, short chainstay position you can run 26 x 3.8? tires on 80mm rims and in the full-rearward, longer chainstay position you get the option of 26 x 4.6? tires on an 80mm rim. Wednesday is made out of Surly's own proprietary 4130 CroMoly steel and is ED coated for extra protection from the elements.

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.
