    Front Range Ogre to test ride?

    Morning.
    Can anyone direct me to a Surly dealer near Colorado Springs that might have an Ogre to test ride?

    Thanks.

    Intergalactic Dealers are most likely to have Surly bikes on the floor. I don't know where these are in relation to Colorado Springs though.

    That's what stopped me from hemorrhaging money on one lol. The shop I talked to needed a 500+ non-refundable deposit to "special order" one in. I'm guessing it's probably a standard practice (20% or so; I've never had a bike ordered in so maybe that's why I get sketched out about the process) but yeah. While I want an ogre I won't be acquiring one anytime soon....though if you find one to test ride I'm insanely jealous lol.

    Coincidentally if there are any shops near Vanderhoof, BC that have a medium framed one kindly PM me lol.

    This post was originally done for a friend.
    Hopefully the Ogre brings him back into the world of bikes. He could use its embrace.

    Found one to try in Denver.
    Donít know the details but doubt itís a real ride. Probably just to pedal in circles in a parking lot while an employees divides their attention between a phone and this rider.

    But- that doesnít mean he wonít be happy as a damned clam after a hundred miles or so.

    Along these lines- what other bikes are there like an Ogre.
    Many bikes that could play the same role sure, but I canít think of any quite like this beast.
