What a roller coaster couple of years it’s been huh? We’re looking forward to FINALLY welcoming you all back into our space – below is the plan for this first few days of re-opening and beyond. We’ll be open on Saturday the 30th of October and Monday the 1st of November but in a reduced capacity, and we probably won’t be able to say yes to absolutely everything. Our first full-blown, full team, 100% Back In The Game business day will be Wednesday November the 3rd. Test rides, adventure planning, workshop assessments – it’ll pretty much be ‘back to normal’ at Commuter. Please wear a mask at all times, even in the courtyard for now. Be fully vaccinated, check in and be ready to show evidence of both to a staff member before you’re able to come inside. We’ll have a bit of a density limit in the store, at…
Now here’s something we’ve been really looking forward to!
If there’s one good thing about lockdown it’s that it breeds big ideas.
If you’ve ever even mentioned the word Fargo to us on the phone or in-store you’ll understand that at Commuter we love this bike. LOVE IT!
We’re pretty excited to introduce the updated Surly Disc Trucker. Here’s some details and our take on them, and why it might be a great option for your new ride!
While we won’t be accepting any servicing or mechanical work, the Commuter webstore is operating as normal
Is tell EVERYONE about Bridge Club! If you’ve dropped into the store, or kept an eye on our social media, over the last twelve months you’ll have noticed a growing number of Surly Bridge Clubs getting around. And with good reason. After initially being underwhelmed by it on paper prior to it’s release, the Bridge Club really has proved itself as an extremely versatile, great value and super fun option for so many different kinds of riding.
Of all the styles of bike we are lucky enough to have on the floor at Commuter the dropbar, dirt capable bike is probably our favourite, and certainly the most versatile. As a result we’ve tried to stock a LOT of options in this style of bike.
To say we’ve been excited for the arrival of Shimano GRX is a massive understatement. For those that have not come across it yet, GRX is Shimano’s new groupset designed for adventure road and gravel bikes.
At Commuter we’re very lucky to have been able to forge relationships with some great brands and offer some of the industry’s leading commuting, touring and adventure bikes. Within this range though, there are a few that really shine, like the Tumbleweed Prospector we featured recently. To be fair though there is a solid standout for us when it comes to versatility of setup and mixed terrain capability. The Wolverine from Soma Fabrications.
We’ll start our series of deeper introductions to our range with what is definitely the least well known member of the Commuter family, the Tumbleweed Prospector
