More Surly Love


Too much fun!

I'm not sure that there is another bike company out there that has quite the cult surrounding it as Surly.

The Ring

John: So is your left hand heavier, now?
Me: No, it's titanium, it's super light.
John: You really are a bike nerd.

The Gamoh Porteur Front Bike Rack

Installed it on the Surly Steamroller (after switching out the front fork for a Cross Check fork and mounting some Avid Shorty 4's and an extra long link wire to fit over the mounting bracket) the other day. Today was the first day I got to ride, loading up 30 records for sale at Shangri-La, then later a quick trip to the grocery store for dinner items. Of course we utilized the Madison Ave. bike lanes and Em (my wife) felt very safe and loved them. From our counter-top lunch perspective at Kwik Chek we saw several people ride by (Cara and Don).

Pictures soon.
