You did the right thing. My Big Dummy is the only bike I ride. My road bike is for sale on Craigslist after years of no use.
The big dummy is mighty close to a perfect bike. If it had a chain case or even a chain guard I'd be a little happier with it. Maybe some day I'll strip it down, and have a bike builder a chain case, powder coat it fire engine red, and add some pin striping. Put it back together with an IGH and it'd be perfect. :-)

Just thought I'd introduce myself as I just joined the list. I've been cycling for years & have a number of bikes but it seems that reality has struck hard lately & I have become virtually a 100% utility cyclist.
I have various panniers, saddlebags, racks, trailers, etc. but I never seem to have the right combination of bike + bag to get what I need home without overstuffing a bag or ending up having to carry grocery bags on the handlebars.
I finally had enough & purchased a Big Dummy. I should have the fork installed this weekend & I will take my maiden trip on it then as well (likely to the liquor store for a nice assortment of bombers). Hoping to learn from the cargo bike veterans & hope to have my own advice to give soon as well.
