A New E-Bike for our Service Manager - What Did He Get?!

Our Service Manager and Wheelie Extraordinaire, Evan (Instagram @_skid_more_), puts his e-bikes through the paces. Between commuting to the shop year-round, hunting down the most stunning street art in Portland, and sharing his love for two wheels with his kiddo, he had a lot of boxes to tick when it came to choosing his next ride: 

  • Bosch Cargo motor - System 2
  • Purion Display
  • Rigid frame - no suspension
  • Boost spacing
  • Not a longtail 

So what did he choose?! Drumroll, please... 🥁🥁🥁

Surly Skid Loader

The Surly Skid Loader!

Compact and ready for action, this bike combines the perks of a long-tail with a size that slides into bike spots like a champ. With a rigid steel frame, sturdy, full-size wheels with large-volume 27.5 x 2.5” tires, a rear rack that can handle a 100 pounds, and plenty of accessory mounts to customize to your heart's content, the Skid Loader is a go-anywhere, do-anything cargo bike that's a blast to ride.

First Impressions

"I managed a few shake down rides already. The kiddo rides her own bike now so I can goof off more. All smiles so far. This is the 7th or 8th Surly for me… I appreciate it coming without many accessories included, I’ll add seasoning to taste."

Accessories and Modifications (so far...)

  • Additional battery for extended range
  • Supernova Design M99 mini front light for full 1300/700 lumens of high/low beam
  • Light and Motion rear light
  • Tannus Armor tire liners 
  • Ergon saddle and grips
  • Doom Bars handlebars
  • Pedals and fenders still to be determined!
