This week is Interbike, the big bike balihou in Las Vegas and most of Team Surly is out West “working”. If you're out there, you'll recognize them in their matching costumes. They'll be showing off some fancy new stuff that you'll probably hear about over the next while.

So, if you call Surly in the next few days, you're going to get me or the voice mail. And we might not be able to respond to your email lickity split, so patience grasshopper. We'll be back in full effect next week.

In the meantime, take a look at our new Environmental Spew #18 over on the right side of the page here. It's a work in progress that we'll shape over the next year or so. At Surly, we prefer not to do any bandwagon jumping or lemming following, so don’t expect us to be buying carbon offset credits or wearing solar-powered clothing anytime soon. However, manufacturing in an intelligent way is important to us, so there.

And to lighten your day :

Peter occasionally takes lovingly artful photos of his own stereo equipment and shares them on Facebook in much the same way others post pictures of their children or pets.
