Dear Friends of The Prairie Peddler – THANK YOU for being a great base of customers for the past FIVE years! You have been a great group of people to ride with, and it has been a blast sharing our love of riding in the Driftless area! We do have a couple of announcements to make: 1: Marty has accepted a position that he simply can’t refuse. It’s within an hour of both our families and Marty will be team leader in a new bagel sandwich shop with friends in Northfield, Minnesota. 2: As a direct result, we will be having a HUGE SALE coming in the next two weeks, starting at 40% off of everything! Prices will be slashed again the following week, but the selection may not be as good! 3: The bike shop will be closing on February 16th. We will gladly do any new bike tune-ups on the spot. Special repairs will also be available if needed. Please don’t be shy! Just call and ask! We want to see you awesome customers, before our shop fades into the great beyond. You, Loyal customers, deserve great deals anyhow, so please come by and get some of those accessories you had on your list! Again, thank you-- thank you and thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for the past fantastic five years. It’s been a great run, and if not for this new chapter, we’d be celebrating five years and looking forward to another great season with you!

One of the happy denizens the Surly Empire happens to live not to far from me over in Decorah, IA. He also happens to be a giant, like me! Aaand, it so happens that he just took delivery of his very own special Krampus! Joy! So I says, can I ride it? Sure! Says the giant gnome. Color me happy. See, for those who don’t pay attention to the intarwebs, or the cycling press probably don’t know that Surly has done it again. First, the Karate Monkey, then the Pugsley, and the Big Dummy. They have this knack for creating bikes that fill a niche, or create a whole new niche. Obviously, the niche we’re interested in here is the Fat bike realm. The one created by what can arguably be called one of the greatest mountain bikes made, the Pugsley.

I have had more than a few Singular fans request when a Kite will be available here in the states. Due to the purchase of the Osprey frames, I wasn't able to bring in Kites in any significant numbers. Sam has several in England though, and he'd love to get them over here into the States and ridden! As such, lets get some over here! Fact of the matter is, the same goes for the Swifts. I'm out of the Larges and Mediums, and Sam has several he'd like to get over here. To do that I need your help. Half down on the Kite/Swift will pay for it and the shipping over here. When they get here, we'll get the rest of the frame cost covered and I'll get them shipped right out to you. To start the process, click one of the corresponding Paypal buttons below. In the comment fields be sure to let me know what size you need! Time line for this should be on the sooner side. I want delivery of these to come with in the first few weeks of cyclocross season. Lets get this going!
