Bikes. Parts. Chaos.

Last weekend Surly showed up in force at the Cuyuna Klunkerfunk in Ironton, MN. The day was filled with miscellaneous bike related activities to keep the crowd entertained. Surly donated some fabulous prizes to help raise funds for trail maintenance and trail development. The Cuyuna Lake Mountain Crew are dedicate group who created this event to raise money to maintain one the best trail systems in the state of Minnesota and we were stoked to be part of the chaos.

Quote of the day came from a demo rider returning an ECR. “That bike feels like you are riding on a deep dish pizza.”

Paul enjoys jumping his bike over fires, sleeping in highly crafted snow banks and basically anything that doesn’t require standing still.
