Matthew got himself (half of) a new winter bicycle; he went halvsies on it with a good friend who works in a bike shop.
What's a winter bicycle? You may well ask.
One with big-ass tires.
Apparently, with a conventional bicycle, the largest diameter tire that will fit within the frame and the brake pads and not interfere with the chain is 2-1/2". Anything larger requires a whole different frame designed to accommodate the aforementioned big-ass tires, which can roll over sand, mud, snow, whatever.
This one is a Surly Pugsley (Is that a great name or what?)
His also has a sweet bell.
