  • I've used both setups, and the Big Dummy is *much* better. It's stiffer, has a more sensible bottom bracket height for a cargo bike and better overall geometry. The instigator has less than one inch of bottom bracket drop. This does two unpleasant things: gives everything a higher center of gravity, and tips the bike forward when it's attached to a freerad (the rear dropout...

  • On longer road rides between -20F and +15F I use hotronic M3 battery powered insoles with some very mediocre shimano winter boots. It's a great setup. I also have Lake winter boots and they aren't nearly as good for anything over an hour.

  • Hey Devin, I chatted with you a bit on the ride last sunday. I neglected to mention that if you're ever in the Roseville neighborhood I'll be happy to take a look at it. Number of links will be pretty hard to calculate as it depends on gearing, chainstay length, and derailleur cage length. -tim On Wed, Oct 8, 2008 at 2:09 PM, Devin Quince wrote: > Ok, so I added gears back on my...

  • Right. Steve did a much better job of articulating my concern--the employer needs to take a role in it, and not all employers will.
