With the off and on freeze and thaw we’ve had this season, the roads and paths are getting pretty unpredictable. Our good friend Mike has always had a pretty stellar winter commuter bike (Surly Steamroller with studded tires and Surly Open Bars), but this year he wanted something with a bit more capability and versatility.
Cue: Surly’s Karate Money
He wanted something that was pretty simple and unassuming, but still carried a slight “Bling” factor. He grabbed quite a few parts that he had taken off previous bikes, and selected some really awesome bits to help bring the complete bike together. For a winter commuter, he really put the money where it counts on a bike that’s going to see snow, ice, salt, and many thaws: drivetrain, wheels and tires.
Now is the perfect time to get your spring commuter ready. And did we mention that Surly has a great offer right now for their Surly Super Fans? Check out the coupon:
