Things on the calendar.
If you've had your head either A) examining your colon from the inside, or B) staring at a heart rate monitor you may have missed the news that the Single Speed World Championships
are this weekend in lovely State College, PA. This annual event is the gathering of the tribe, the grand-daddy, the big enchillada and you really should get there. This year promises a death-march style course, excellent wooded single-track, rocks, roots, big ups and big downs, hot derby action, and... go karts.
McGruff (shown above with his comfort bike)... longtime Friend of Surly, devilish single speeder, Budweiser advocate, and all around good egg is getting hitched this weekend in St. Louis, MO. Rumor has it that a large herd of retarded dingos is on its way to that locale with mayhem in mind. Not that the McGruff clan needs any more fuel on that fire. We at Surly extend our most sincere congrats to the happy couple (and we extend a middle finger for having a weddin' on the same day as Worlds - see above).
