Surly Xtracycle confirmed!

Surly's all-in-one Xtracycle

Byron sends along this photo from the floor of Interbike, which officially starts today. I’m sure we’ll have more details when the show is open and the bike isn’t locked down, but the long and short of it is: Surly is launching the first production all-in-one Xtracycle.

That means folks who love the idea of an Xtracycle will have one less obstacle to hurdle: No more kit-building. Also, I can’t see any reason the Stokemonkey wouldn’t work.

Questions for our eyes and ears in Vegas: Is Surly selling this as a frame or a bike? What are they calling it? What’s the availability?

Bike Zeitgeist

As Todd said in email, “I got your zeitgeist right here pal!,’ and linked me to BikePortland’s post on Electra’s new Amsterdam bike. The concept of a stylish, simple transport bike, be it “working,” “urban,” “townie,” or sport-utility bike, can flow right into that mood of change that’s going on in cities.

Given a good alternative, I think people want to get out of their cars.



A ferocious turf war in the city

The NYTimes reports today on a bike-friendlier New York. With “an estimated 120,000 regular cyclists in New York” and “40,000 of them” commuting, there’s a ferocious turf war. And an absolute moment of opportunity. Just like Seattle.



The Walla Walla Gran Fondo

The Gran Fondo Walla Walla is a ride that has been around in concept for about 10 years. It has had different people interested in promoting it, sponsoring it, and helping put it on for at least 5 of the last ten years, but it was not until last year that everyone that was interested finally sat down at the same table to put it al together. And when they put it all together, they decided to do it for people with cancer.

The Gran Fondo is on 9/30/06. Registration is $40.00 and includes a lunch and beverage.
