Monster Bike

Meet Colonel's customer Richard Chambers. Richard is the proud new owner of a Surly Pugsley. This is basically the monster truck of bicycles. The tires are 4.0 " wide and mounted to a Large Marge rim which is 65mm wide and weighs 1100 grams. This sucka can be ridden through sand or snow. There is no stopping the Pugsley. The look on Richard's face says it all. The rear hub is a special piece of engineering in itself. The Rohloff hub contains 14 speeds for a 526% gear range. We are currently talking to the guys at Full Wood Fenders about making some custom jobs specifically for this bike.

Separated at Birth?

I have been getting a lot of comparisons lately.
What do you think?

On The Road

I spent about 38 hours making a whirlwind tour of Denver, Boulder and Steamboat Springs Colorado. The highlights: the Moots bicycle factory where I was lucky enough to spend the night in their dealer apartment, Vecchios bicycle shop in Boulder, and Veloswap in Denver.

This is Veloswap in Denver. Definitely the largest bicycle swap meet I have ever witnessed.

Inside of Vecchios bicycle shop in Boulder. Bikes start at $2400 and go up quickly. The dude in the black vest (Joe Hughes) works in the store and is originally from Fort Worth.

The first Moots factory. Legend has it that the building was an incinerator purchased at auction from the city of Steamboat for one dollar by Kent Eriksen. The building is now a bicycle retail store.

The current Moots bicycle factory. Home of the finest titanium bikes in the world.

This is Rabbit Ears Pass — Notice the sign designates the Pacific and Atlantic watersheds.

Short but sweet-
Over and Out
