I worked out the math, and it was seeming like it was a better deal to
buy a Radish than do all the work I was going to do to get my ride the
way I wanted it.
Then I talked it over with my trusted buddy at the LBS, and he
convinced me that I should really go with a Big Dummy (complete)
I'll tell you I'm not having a shimmy problem, it's a very nice ride,
everything works like it should. It's a really great bike that I plan
to ride for a long time.
Only issues I can think about why you wouldn't do the Big Dummy
* if your budget doesn't allow, but make sure you consider the entire
budget, including the cost to get the parts you already have, and
presumably could sell
* if Surly / xtracycle doesn't have inventory on Big Dummy when you want it
I put my order in Dec. 2010 and got my bike Mar. 2011.
