Latest addition to the FM cycling community

So, this post doesn't have much to do with cycling, but it's what been on my mind most recently and has helped to create the time disparity between posts. Anyway, here's a photo of the newest member of my family. Clive Jerome Christianson was born on Sunday, November 18th 2012. He weighed in at 9 lbs 6 oz. and was 20.5 inches long. I'm not sure why that's relevant, but they're the answers to the questions my wife always asks when I mentioned someone had a new baby. I also want to give props to my amazing wife, Jill, and our Midwife, Beth and her assistants for helping with our 2nd homebirth. Praise God for our newest baby boy!

Surly + School Bus Yellow = Hi-Vis Dream

The Surly Pugsley is known for its all-around versatility, but you can see for yourself at Great Northern Bicycle Co. They just received the 2013 model and it has some nice upgrades over the past incarnations. First, you're sure to see it against a backdrop of white with its Matte School-Bus Yellow paint and it only gets better from there.

It takes a cue from the Neckromancer Pugs of the past (and current) and is adorned with Microshift thumbies, a seat-tube mounted front derailleur, and the drilled out single-wall Marge Lite rims. One you've got to throw a leg over for yourself to really appreciate, so come on down...

Sur(e)ly, a bike for ALL seasons...

The Surly Pugsley is definitely a bike for all seasons, and now at GNBC you've got a great opportunity to take one home at a great price. We all know that eventually winter will come again, so get ready early AND in the meantime, enjoy rolling on some 'Fat' tires. 

The trails at MB Johnson Park in Moorhead,MN are in prime condition for some off-road riding as well. Don't forget to join us on Thursdays at 6:30 for our weekly off-road ride (we depart the shop at a little after 6 OR meet us out there).

S-Works goes electric

Here's a few images of the latest build to leave Great Northern Bicycle Co. You can't go wrong when you start with something as nice as a Specialized SkunkWorks Roubaix. Dress it up a little with some Shimano Ultegra electric components and top it off with some great HED wheels and you've got something pretty special. Thanks, Kevin. We hope you enjoy riding it as much as we enjoyed building it.

Note: If you see a flash of neon go by you on the roads up north in Grand Forks, you now know what it was.
