Veteran's Day 2012

I often reflect on my time in the Marine Corps and Veteran's Day is no different.  I served during Desert Storm and was able to see a lot of the world.  Currently my unit is in Iwakuni, Japan, a place I spent I lot of time during my service.  My time in the Marines with the "Bats" helped shape me into what I am today and for that I will always be thankful.  But what does this have to do with biking?

The Surly Black Ops Pug (yeah bear with me).  How can you make the original Pugsley any better, it is already one bad ass, all-terrain rig?  Well, first you black it all out to make it covert.  Then you add even wider rims (82mm) to create a wider tire footprint.  Lastly, you call it "Black Ops," what could be cooler?
Now, I got to play with some cool stuff in the Marines, but we never got to ride around on Surly Black Ops bikes.  Coming to Greasy Fingers December 1st!
