Pedal Revolution Update 2-16-12 2012 Surly Pacers in stock!

Some exciting new bikes in the shop. First off, Pedal has our first batch of 2012 Surly Pacers. These are a fantastic no-nonsense road bike option. The new color for 2012 is “Sparkleboogie Blue” updated with a ten speed Tiagra drivetrain.  Here is what Surly has to say about the Pacer:

“Behold the Pacer, now also available as a complete bike.  For years we sold it only as a frameset.  It was understated, didn’t draw a lot of attention to itself, but it rode great and people who rode one loved it. 

The Pacer is not what most race-inspired roadies seem to drool over. It isn’t on the cutting edge of design, it isn’t made of the latest ultra light super-expensive materials, and it isn’t festooned with lots of bright colors and graphics.  Rather, it is a road bike made of our favorite material, cro-moly steel, using frame geometry that makes it fast and efficient like a road bike should be, but it is not a racing bike.  This is a frame meant for all day rides.  There are a lot of other road frames out there that are flashier, more exotic, and full of promises most riders only dream of fulfilling.  The Pacer doesn’t make promises.  It’s simply a great riding steel frame.

We decided to offer it as a complete bike to make it easier for folks to try one.  It’s laterally stiff but vertically compliant, which is just a fancy way of saying it’s comfy but responds when you push hard on the pedals.  It’s got plenty of tire clearance for larger tires than is normal for road frames because larger tires are more comfy.  Since tire casings flex before the frame, higher volume tires to take the edge off the bumps and jangles which otherwise can harsh your ride.  We gave the complete 28mm tires, a good all around size that will still allow you to add fenders if you like.  As you might expect, we built it up with a parts kit that is more than capable but not snobbish or unnecessarily expensive.  No, the Pacer will not impress people who live for the next replica team ‘kit.’ The Pacer reminds us, quietly, that there is a road bike out there for the rest of us.”

Pedal has a size run in stock now, come by and take one for a spin.
