Surly Pop Physique.

Pop Physique is a new exercise studio in my great neighborhood of Mar Vista. It's sort of a fusion of mat pilates, barre method and light weight training. It's a great workout in an hour. I went on Sunday and my abs still hurt today on Tuesday.

As I was locking up my bike I spotted this lovely Surly Long Haul Trucker at the next parking meter. With it's small size, swept back handlebars and practical basket it seemed decidedly girly to me. It turned out the owner of the bike was indeed another woman who was in the Pop Physique class. I didn't get a picture of her hopping on and riding off because she was so quick! Maybe next time.


  1. I love that the owner made the LHT more "girlie." They seem to be so predominately male (if there is such a thing). Nice to see that lovely Truckaccino color too. I have to admit, I definitely wanted that frame in the lovely beigy-cappuccinoish color, but this years' models only come in the black and blue. :(

  2. Oooh, the handlebars! What's next, a step-through frame?
