New Bike

Surly's are great bikes, they ride great and are pretty much zero-bling bs.
The guys that run the show are into adventure riding, touring and off - the wall kind of stuff. Look at their blog for proof, of just their products. Really...

A little history. I used a Karate monkey to singlespeed the Mcgrath race back in 2005. It was great, conditions were good enough for a 29er with snowcats, aside from knee destruction and searing pain for 90 miles, I had a great time. I think a few emails were traded. Then the monkey went to South America and generally got the snot kicked out of it. Aside from a large amount of salt deposited inside the frame and a messed up paint job its no worse for the wear... I start making bike bags... Surly liked the bike bags.. I like Surly's... I come up with far flung trip ideas.. Surly liked far flung trip ideas... trip ideas need fat tire bikes... I don't have one and am cheap :( Surly makes fat tire bikes :) A bags for bikes barter was made and everyone is happy Hurray!
So without further delay..
My new pugs:

Going to go break it in and get it wet over the next few days.
