    29er snow commuter

    I am about to go into the garage...its is supposed to snow tomorrow and I will not ride my steel Land Shark in snow...so I am going in to fit a 44t on the Salsa Mamacita. 44 with an 18t rear freewheel. Discs of course. IRC Notos or whatever they are.

    Wish me luck...and post your 29er commuters please.

    29"er commuters.

    Here are a few. There`s room for 42c nobbies with the fenders.

    Yeah, I wish they made [k]nobbies with reflective strips.

    That'd be dead sexy, if not practical.

    Ft. Collins Co.

    The bannana belt of Colorado. Not to mention they don`t salt the roads here. They slime them with some god awful chemical that gets into and onto every thing you own.

    I ride an old road frame converted to fixed gear with 700c wheels with cyclocross tires (Geax Crossblades 29mm) with 60mm 26" fenders. I live in Wisconsin as well and I don't think the salt will be a problem. I rinse my bike off fairly often in the basement of my workplace and I framesaver all my frames.

    forgot to recharge the camera's batteries. But tonight you'll see her in her splendor. I slapped on a 44 Vuelta chainring on old LX cranks with whatever bolts I could find in my bag of tricks.
    I have to switch tires. Pushing those tires seemed eternal.

    Long live the Mamacita.

    WOW, you guys with the woodie fenders, killing me...in the WINTER???????? Ok...

    Hey, Surly CrossCheckers....anyone go with any studded Nokians? I'm trying to figure out what would be the best for commuting during the winter, but secure enough for those patches of black ice that jump out in front of you. I'm running the stock setup you'll get if you ordered straight from Eric/Surly.
    The wood is being bent! Let me know what you need!
