Fallin Dumps

Welcome to Friday, hope you're having a good one so far.

I was talking to Slippers the other day and he said, "Fall in Minnesota is the best season, if you disagree….you’re wrong". I can't say I disagree with him. Not only do you get the gourds out but you get perfect weather for riding and generally being outside and I'm not even getting into the backdrop nature provides.

Besides Summer and Winter, it's my favorite season.

Let's look at some pics huh?

Yep its fall! get out and enjoy it. While you're at it I could use your help with a little project.

I'm looking for a few scary Surly pics to spruce The Dump up for All Hallows Eve.


I'll sweeten the deal.

For those pics I choose I'll throw in some Surly trinkets. Nothing big, but I'll send you a lil supmin sompin you know like for the effort. 

Just to get you inspired I'll share one of AWOOD's classic videos. 

I can't wait to see what you come up with. Just don't get arrested acting like a creepy clown OK?
Leave that to us.

I'll see you out there.

Wield the Steel

There’s a lot of reasons to use steel for a frame. And you might know them. You might know them all, but there's only one you really need to know: Because steel is fucking cool.   Harvey Mushman knew it King Kenny knew it The Springer knew it Mert knew…

Straggler Dropout Update!

What’s new?  Nothing?  Oh cool.  Yeah, the weather is CRAZY, huh?  Well, what did you think of that Chicken Parmesan?  That was meatloaf?  Oh.  Dear God.  I think I’m going to be sick. But wait, remember Meatloaf?  I remember seeing the cover art from Bat Out of Hell and immediately…
