Designed to be folded in less than 10 seconds, the GX is the perfect ebike for urban commuting. The GX feature Gocycle’s world speed record holding PitstopWheels. Six bolts fasten the wheels to the hubs like a car for a faster fold than the GS and G3 models. The side mounted design not only looks great but provides easy access for fixing a flat tire without removing the wheel! The powerful lithium ion battery is easily accessible and hidden within the all new hydroformed aluminium frame, providing a range up to 40 miles (65 km) with a 7-hour charge time. The GX comes with ergonomic and comfortable grips mated to a 3-speed mechanical twist shifter. Cables are elegantly routed through the frame connecting to the durable Shimano Nexus gearing. Central LED displays fuel level of your battery.
GXi - The new GXi is the most advanced folding e-bike available today. It can be folded into a compact package in just 10 seconds and features a stunning array of industry-leading technology to provide a safer and more engaged ride. The GXi features Gocycle’s world speed record-holding PitstopWheels. Six bolts fasten the wheels to the hubs like a car for a faster fold than the GS and G3 models. The side mounted design not only looks great but provides easy access for fixing a flat tire without removing the wheel! The powerful lithium ion battery is easily accessible and hidden within the all new hydroformed aluminium frame providing a range up to 40 miles (65 km) with a 4-hour charge time. All the information the rider needs is presented in a streamlined, simple dashboard—battery level, driving mode, speed and gear position. No cables are visible. As of 2011, European law mandates that all automobiles are required to have daytime running lights (DRLs) which substantially increase the visibility of cars to other road users. The Gocycle GXi comes fitted with an automotive-inspired DRL, employing our proprietary light pipe design and technology.
The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ol' spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations.
