I been using a Sea to Summit HeadNet since my Chasing the Dirt bicycle tour in July 2012 and I am now on my second HeadNet since losing my first during the bicycle tour. I sorely missed my HeadNet having to resort to a less than idea mosquito head net that I picked up a roadhouse.

Surly Pugsley bicycles have been recalled by Product Safety Recalls Australia in-cooperation with the Dirt Works Australia Pty Ltd due to an issue with the 135 mm spacing yellow forks fitted to the Surly Pugsley bicycles sold in Australia between October 12, 2012 to May 6, 2013. The forks where made by Aprebic Industry Co. Ltd, of Taiwan. Please note that the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice refers to 135 mm forks that are black, yellow or red and are stamped with date code 2012 06 19 on the steerer tube and also to 100 mm forks. The Surly Bikes recall notice on their website also refers to Surly 100 mm non-offset bicycle forks. I am assuming Dirt Works Australia only brought in yellow coloured fork 135 mm fork.
