Surly (plus) Plus Bikes in Snow

  • Angry Catfish Bicycle Shop 4208 28th Avenue S Minneapolis, MN 55406 (map)

We were watching the snow pile up out our front window, and thought, "We should get a bunch of people together on bikes and gather 'round a bonfire." 

Surly Bikes agreed to join us on a date - the party animals that they are - and they will bring some bikes for y'all to ride. PLOT TWIST - the available bikes will be PLUS bikes. Everyone asks how they ride in the winter, so now's your chance to find out.

We planned a fun route that might take you to unfamiliar places on the way to an awesome, toasty-warm bonfire. We will be leaving from ACF after close. Please arrive promptly at or before 6PM so we can get rolling ASAP.

*We also have ingredients for a nice beverage that will require your favorite thermos.*

If you need or want to borrow a Surly bike, this is where you have to commit: Email chris@angrycatfishbicycle.com and say "I'd like to ride (insert Surly here) bike." 

THIS is the list of available bikes:

Krampus - The original 29+...duh
(SM x1) (MD x1) (XL x3)

ECR 27.5+ 
(XS x1) (SM) (MD)

ECR 29+
(LG x2) (XL)

Karate Monkey 27.5+
(XS x1) (SM x1) (MD x2) (LG x1) (XL x3)

Bikes will be eliminated from list as they are claimed.

Lastly, I'll save you the trouble: No Surly fatbikes will be available for demo. With the trails we will be riding, It will be okay, trust us. Plus, you'll get to try something different. New experiences can be fun.
