    Latest From Mobile Phone Wolrd - Surly Moonlander With Clownshoe Rims, Big Fat Tires

    Surly, maker of tough bikes for tough people with a sense of humor, has pulled back the curtain on the coming year’s new products. There are many updates to existing lines (the Long Haul Trucker frame will also be available with disk brake mountings, for instance), and a pair of new bikes. Here, though, we’ll take a look at the new Moonlander. Why pick on this one? Well, just look at it:

    Crazy, right? The space-colored (black with “metal goodness flakes”) frame sits atop a pair of wheels that would probably float over just about anything. The Clownshoe rims are 100mm wide, and have holes cut in them to cut down on weight (960 grams or 2.1 pounds). And yes, it would appear that rubber bulges through these holes. The be-holed Clownshoe will cost $200.

    Onto these comedy rims (which will also come in a non-holy, heavier and cheaper version) goes the Big Fat Larry, a 26×4.7, 120tpi tire that’s as fat as your upper arm. The tire is listed as “tire colored,” and it should be on sale any time now for $140.

    The Moonlander itself has a few special mods to let the chain clear these huge wheels. Surly has modded its Mr. Whirly cranks into the MWOD Mr. Whirly Offset Double. This puts the chainrings further out (the rear wheel has a matching offset) to clear the tire. The crankset will ship in late September for $310.

    Should you opt for just the Moonlander frame, you can have it in late September, too, for $700. The full bike will arrive in December, for $2,350.
