I’ve been biased to the Surly brand since 2003. This is about when I purchased my first Karate Monkey “29er” and then again in 2004 when I picked up a hidden stock of the pink 1×1. Since then I’ve had many bikes with the Surly logo stickered down the side. Multiple Karate Monkey’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. I encourage it, and look forward to being able to afford a Krispy Kreme donut in your honor.
A long time ago there was a purple Surly Pugsley floating around in my life. It was fun to ride, a hoot to get others on and a solid build. As I’m trying to learn my Southeast region territory I figured a perfect bike to bring in to have at events like cyclocross, endurance mountain bike rides and such is a fat bike!
So, an 18″ Surly Pugsley will be landing in the area later this week. A local shopwill be building it up, putting some personal Bike Shop Girl touches on for me and taking it to some cyclocross races while I am traveling out of the area. If you are interested in a fat bike it is a complete post on it’s self but it is simply putting the fun back in biking.
