If you're not already familiar with the Surly Pugsley, it's a mountain bike with tires that are almost four inches wide. These babies will roll over snow, sand, mud, small children, and just about anything else in their way.
Even if you don't think you need a Pug, you'll want one after you take a test-ride. Just look at the big smile on SurlyVegan's face after her test ride (even though we couldn't convince her to ride it down the middle of the railroad tracks, like the rest of us did):
Christmas Ale in July, you can get your snow bike now--get 'em while they're hot! You don't have to wait for snow to ride it, either; the Surly Pugsley can give new meaning to the term "beach cruiser."
Speaking of Surlys, we re-stocked a couple of our most popular models, the Long Haul Trucker and the Cross-Check. Here's are list of what's currently in stock in our stores:

Also, please note the date of this blog post before you call. We'll have someone call in April of 2013 saying, "I read on your blog that you have a 52cm Cross-Check in Robin's Egg Blue in stock." Don't be that guy. By that time, the latest colors from Surly will be Moldy Bleu Cheese, Pond Scum, or who knows what.
