Most of us at Trail's Edge have been long time winter cyclist...even before it was cool. We've tried many ways to stay warm and are always willing to share our results and give suggestions to extend your riding season. Heck the Winter can be some of the most enjoyable riding of the year.
We also carry some of the best cold weather gear out there. NOW IN STOCK are 45Nrth shoes, both the famed Wolvhammer and the all new Fasterkatt. These will go fast so come on in to either store and snag a pair! And be sure to grab a pair of our handmade Moose Mitts to complete the winter ensemble. You'll be the envy of everyone on the block!!!
Surly Krampus Review - by Adawg
Many of you may or may not know that we are now a stocking Surly dealer and, as such, we felt it our obligation to start off with some of the more interesting bikes from their line up, including the Cross Check, Pugsley,Pug Ops and of course the newest design...The Krampus (29 +). While the stock bike is pretty sweet, Aaron put out a challenge to make the same bike, but lighter and with hydraulic brakes. We also wanted to keep the cost/retail the same (stock Krampus is $1,949.99)
In the end, we were able to build a bike that is 3lbs lighter, has Hydro brakes and was only $100 more overall. Once this bike was built of course we had to test it out. Below you'll find Aaron's review which pretty much sums up this unique design. If you are interested in this bike built up as we have or other options please call. You can also order them on-line here on our catalog.
" I Put a lap in at Tree Farm yesterday afternoon...holy effin traction!!! Leaves be damned, I pushed this bike through every turn trying to break it loose. It stuck to the trail like "s**t on a blanket" (quote from Martin Ingman yrs back). Tires were at 18psi rear, 15 front."
Bicycling While Traveling - If you’re riding far from home, on vacation or business, it’s easy in your exuberance to fit in a ride and explore a new place, to get lost. To make finding your way back easy, a good idea is to carry a brochure from your hotel with you. That way, you can show it to the locals when asking for directions. This can come in really handy when you don’t speak the language.
