The Triumphant Return of the Surly Dump

Well, folks, it’s been quite a while since we’ve dug through the ol’ Surly Dump and shared our findings with all of ya’s. We’ve been a little backed up, to say the least so, sorry about that. Today’s a new day though. And that day happens to be Friday. And on Friday’s we dump.

Since Monday’s Humanoids of Surly post was all about Rachel and her Straggler, I figured we keep Straggler Appreciation Week going with a whole dump dedicated to it.

Enjoy!

“This bike changed my life. Before this 650b Straggler entered my stable, I thought the future would be pinching pennies to save up for custom frames until the day I died. THIS bike gave me hope and made me understand how other people felt to throw a leg over a top tube and just ride, COMFORTABLY, on a stock build and frame (at 5’0” with a 29.75” inseam this is no small feat). Sparklepony has been in the basement for months but today we were reunited. Despite a stiff headwind, I was transported back to that first day I hopped on, all of the joy and elation it first brought me came rushing back as I glided into to work today. Thanks to Surly for keeping that joy alive.”

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.

A Desert Full of…

As you read this, I’m currently escaping to the desert for a while to ride around and camp and generally avoid responsibility for a couple weeks. As such, I figured that the desert would make a fine theme for this week’s Dump. Enjoy and I’ll see you in a couple…
