      I saw the Big Dummy at Interbike last week, and since Kipchoge was standing
      there, and the guy at Surly introduced me to him, I'd say the project is on
      the up-and-up. BTW - the bike is GORGEOUS!!! I have lots of pix of it,
      but I don't know if it's kosher to post a link here or not. If someone in
      power gives the go ahead I'll post a link.

      Looking at the prototype it was clear that Surly knows what they are doing
      (no big surpise)
