A Brand New Intelligencer For Ya’s

Greetings. How’s the holiday season treating you? Did you get enough ham to eat? Good.

Well, friends, it’s that time again. No, I’m not talking about the time of year when we all revel that our civilization miraculously survived another year of existence. Though, that is pretty neat. I’m speaking, of course, about the release of another issue of Intelligencer unto the world. In celebration of the aforementioned triumph of survival, we thought we’d dedicate Intelligencer #4 to everything that’s happened to or because of Surly throughout these past thirteen moons.

Nestled in these pages you’ll find stories about events, trips, and new products from the past year. You’ll also find an interview with our latest Superfan, Blaine, who — I’m not even shitting you — has a fleet of twenty fat bikes in his one-bedroom apartment. It doesn’t disappoint.

Behold: Blaine


On newsstands now. Provided your local bike shop has a newsstand. And they stock said newsstand with Intelligencer. If not, don’t you worry — you can still get your waggling little fingers on a copy. Just ask them (nicely) to order from QBP using the part number MA4133 and all your wildest Intelligencer needs will soon be met.

No Sovs were hurt in the making of Intelligencer.


Since my first blog entry happens to fall on the international day of mourning that is the anniversary of Lemmy’s death, here’s some Motörhead to get you through the day:

See ya’s next year.

About Sweet Beef

As Surly’s devilishly handsome Copywriter, Joel got to write his own bio. He also names things, writes the words in the Intelligencer and on our web site, and sticks his fingers in other various pieces of Surly propaganda. He even knows the difference between an “en dash” and an “em dash.” Never one to shy away from a snack, we are anxiously awaiting what’s going to happen when his metabolism inevitably chases him down and wreaks havoc on his soft, pastry-filled body.

Das Groß Krampus Dump

  The Holidays reminds me of all the long email chains that went around the office discussing the merits and faults of naming the bike after an anthropomorphic folklore figure. We had some interesting discussions about that one for sure. After we launched, we received some feedback in various forms of, "Wow…
