Large Marge...

My wheels are getting laced, and they asked me what color nipples I'd liked.
I gave my honest answer.... Pink!!!?? Lol
He says really? I say yeah, but make mine red!!!!!
I don't know if he got my humor or not, but oh well I got a good laugh!!
Things are starting to flow nicely, and I'm starting to get that new
bike itch!!!!

So i'm getting ready for bed, and I decide I'll check the Surley blog............. Wow, Wow!!!!

Panic! Don’t panic. Panic!!!
Panic! It crept up my spine like the first rising vibes of a Pugsley frenzy....

We've received a shipment of Large Marge offset rims in both DH and XC versions. They're new, improved, choice. These parts now feature a welded seam, which is approxomately 40g lighter, and far more rad.
It's a good thing.

So I mention this because I thought you should know. These were our first of the new production run, shipped expressly to satiate demand. Demand is a hungry beast however.

That's a moderate thing.

But why mention panic? What's the point? Well, it's because we're all out of them already. Took about 2 hours.

That's a bad thing.

As they (we) say in Minnesota, "So there's that."

Seriously, people say that. It's pretty awesome.

In summary, we care about you, and want you to be happy. The next batch of rims will arrive mid-Feb.  It will be a bountiful order. I applaud your patience. Your lustful waking dream of Pugsley is very close to reality.

So there's that.

Today's ride would have been perfect for a Pugsley but was still fantastic with my new Nokian Extremes.
