…nkey’s, a Long Haul Trucker, a Big Dummy and Steamroller. There hasn’t been much change to the 2013 Surly lineup, some colors, a 14″ Pugsley and of course, the Krampus. Disclaimer: I am now the Southeast rep for Surly. If you buy a new Surly Bike in NC, SC, TN, AL or GA, from an independent bicycle dealer, I will make money from it.

Sunday Bike Ride with the Greenwalds

…into Denver on the Platte River Trail. A few things to note: Emily’s parents are in their early 70’s, her mom rode a Pugsley and her dad a folding Dahon with 16″ wheels. We went 24 miles for the full round trip. In my humble opinion yesterday’s bike ride was amazing and I’m super impressed with both of Emily’s folks. I know where Emily gets many of her traits that I love so much! What did you do this weekend?!…

Fat Tires and Full Suspension Prototypes

…ur mountain bike tire to be 4″ wide. Yes 4″. They’ve been around for several years. The Surly Pugsley in purple was my first experience with fat bikes, this was in 2005. It was single speed, I was in North Carolina. It was awesome for bombing through woods, making my own line on the trail and really not giving a crap what I ran into. Think monster truck with a bike. (You do need forward momentum for it to work!) Salsa Cycles rec…

Tech Tuesday: What the Heck is a Fat Bike

…ions! One of the latest bikes to enter my fold as a demo bike for my outside sales position with QBP is a Surly Pugsley.
