Big Wheels Keep On Rolling: Surly Pugsley

Mario E sends his regards from somewhere in New Mexico on this big-wheeled bike.

The marketing of these bikes is so convoluted, I don’t know what they’re calling them now, but that’s a Surly Pugsley. It’s used for snow, dunes, trails, and whatever else you want to roll over.

Also see this bamboo cargo bike spotted at Sea Otter with Surly’s clown shoe rims.

Surly are the stoners in the bike industry that keep their shit together just enough to release something as ridiculous and cool as that.

Surly is a part of a huge company that pays huge money to get you to think “Surly are the stoners in the bike industry that keep their shit together just enough to release something as ridiculous and cool as that.”

That too…and said this on Facebook

“That’s part two of QBP’s manufactured brands and a post for another day. I don’t now why honestly, a brand doesn’t embrace the stoner heritage of the industry and call it Big Buds or something with a sticky-icky headtube badge and infused with stoner sensibilities. If Anderson Cooper can joke weekly about smoking weed, I think it’s mainstreamed enough that you could successfully market to it.”

stoner references on bicycles? meh

stoner culture ain’t pro. there’s no pot in pot belge, ya know

yet, am i the only one who think the term “e”-bike is hysterical?
