Krampus Dress up and Surly bikes are holding a costume contest and offering up a Surly Krampus frameset as the prize. Contestants are asked to dress as the mythic anti-Santa, and namesake of Surly's latest reinvention of the wheel with their 29+ beast of a bike, the Krampus.

Famous for torturing and kidnapping naughty children,  he has driven fear and obedience into the hearts of many Euro-Alpine families throughout the decades.  For your viewing enjoyment and horror here is my own interpretation of the Krampus.   Important to note that any self respecting Krampus would ride an XtraCYCLE for transporting the misbehaved children.
