I have a Big Dummy and a key argument for one is the stiffer frame. If you plan on going longer distances, it can help quite a lot. It's also just generally a better designed machine than a conversion, nice as those can be.On the other hand, it's a heavy beast and you might have trouble on that hill. We live in the Mission, where it's not as big an issue.-Steve G

I've got a (very big) 2- and 4-year old that I would love to get to school by bike. I've been doing my research, but would love to hear from any folks here about whether they prefer the extracycle or the big dummy. We live in Potrero Hill, so I'm also questioning whether I'd need an electric assist, but I'm not ready to drop that kind of cash yet. Also, would love to know if anyone had luck finding one used. Any leads/advice appreciated!
Many thanks! Kathleen
