ECR Dump

HA! Surprised you again huh? Welcome to your weekend.

Here at Surly we don't like to talk much about ourselves. Maybe it's a Midwestern thing and that's all good, but that also means a few of our products get the short end of the stick. The ECR is one of the unsung heroes in our lineup and it excels at Escaping City Restrictions. Perhaps we haven't talked about it enough but those who have one love them and I thought I'd share some of their photos today. So here are some Excellent Creative Renderings of the ECR.




At Surly, we ride loaded all the time. I'm pretty confident you do to. If you ride loaded too send us a picture or two and I'll make your bike Famous! UPLOAD HERE! 


T$$ sent me an email last week said I should check this guy out. He said to me you can't listen to those Dead fan recordings ALL the time. Right you are Trevor.

I thought I'd share this guy with all of you this week. Give it a listen if you like, I found it pretty refreshing, hope do too.

Thanks T$$$!


That's all I have for this week. I'm Treebeard, and I'll see you out there.

Take the Long Cut

I recently realized that my cycling routine has primarily devolved to riding for necessity — biking for utility, fitness and transportation has become my norm. While satisfying, purposeful riding can also feel mundane at times. Lately, I’ve tended towards the most direct and familiar route from point A to point…
