Woohoo! Living large, car camping with bikes. 2 trailers, 1 Big Dummy, 1 Xtracycle, 4 steaks, 20 cans of beer, 2 boxes of wine, 2 cans of bear spray, and 10 miles to go into National Forest up towards Mystic Lake. One fantastic night.

Yes, I did. I'm honored that they chose to put it up there, and that they liked the soundtrack in ours better, but I gotta disagree with their comments about clamping the frame. On a steel frame, there's no problem with clamping the frame as long as you don't crank it down. I don't normally do that, mainly out of respect for the sanctity of the paint job but there's no risk in damaging a burly steel frame as long as one doesn't over-do it. Any lightweight frames, then no. But the Dummy ain't too light or fragile.
