    Three questions:

    2. Do you enjoy riding by yourself?
    3. Why do Surly owners constantly feel the need to justify their choice of frame?

    Seriously, it's like a broken record.

    The tyres are cool at any rate.

    I'm building up a Soma Double Cross and my Shimano 105 group came today. Thanks a bunch to Main Street Bikes in Kentucky for giving me an awesome deal on a demo'd kit ($350) and shipping it next day. I'll post the frame and fork once they arrive.

    Two mtb, three road bikes, beach cruiser, and a spin bike (stationary trainer), two sets of wheels for each road bike.

    Walked into the LBS Sunday to get a new cassette for the mtb, new chain, came out with both and a new Trek 3700.

    This is an online product photo:



    Discussion is in the blog link with my signature.

    Other recent purchases were two 700 x 23 road bike tires, Bontrager clipless road shoes, and XCT clipless pedals for both road bikes. Those solved the knee pain issues riding strapped in w/ cleats.

    After six years the stock Manitou Axel on my GF Marlin gave up the ghost. The LBS is going to cut the steerer tube to the right length and install the star nut.
    This is my first nicer(r) fork. Now I'm going to have to learn to actually adjust it. :)

    My latest purchase is everything on this frame/fork with the exception of the front brake calipers, the water bottle cage and pedals. Old Schwinn World Sport frame I picked up and set it up as a 46x16 SS to use for commuting and touring.

    Here is my latest bike purchase, well not really I has since bought 2 new Blackburn Camber Carbon cages and a Topeak Aero Seat bag for it but those aren't as exciting.
    It does have Egg Beaters on there, which I stole from my 29'er.

    Stuff for the "other" bike.

    Got this for $15. Looking to try a shorter stem and a lower bar position.



    New pedals, Not super light, but lighter than my current pedals and still have a little bit of platform.



    New gloves.

    Chainlove.com had those Blackburn pumps for $6.99 a couple weeks ago. I picked up two of them.

    DOH!
    I wish I had seen them then. I check chainlove quite a bit, but apparently I need to check it more often.

    I needed the pump for the ride. I got a flat the last time I went out and didn't want to keep using the CO2 cartridges and I didn't want to ride without the ability to change a flat.

    Well I guess I'm just an old school kinda guy. Easy to adjust, good braking power, no bleeding issues, and I can replace the cable if it would break on long remote rides.
    I've been on several rides over the years with guys running hydraulics and their brakes work great until we go over a pass at 12,000' and their brakes are gone till we get lower. I know it's an adjustment/bleed problem, but they can't get it fixed and don't find out till we hit the high country, which sucks.

    Lefty Max 140mm SPV fork reduced for 29er use. Installed with a Project321 adapter, Canondale SL hub and DT Swiss X470 hoop.

    Still working on ironing out some bugs, tho. The SPV valve is stuck open (not really a bad thing, but bobs like crazy) and the front wheel I built it a total noodle. I'm reworking the wheel with brass nipples so I can up the tension... cheap fix. The real fix is probably going to be a stiffer hoop.

    Other than that, its super plush, and super fast to react to the trail. I love it, although it really makes me want to invest in a newer Lefty, really.

    Just bought a new Trek Fuel EX 5 WSD for the lady. I also ordered the new CBs Iodine 3 (black/gold) wheel set and Iodine 11 low riser bars (740mm) for my Fuel EX 9.7. I've been doing my fair share of spending with REI, my LBS, all of Moab's LBSs, Jenson USA, Performance, Price Point, Ebay and many others for years now. Too bad our economy is solely based on people spending, especially when we don't produce a lot of what we buy here in the States. Just remember to keep saving and investing, and not just spending it all. :thumbsup:

    My frame is new, because of a warrantee replacement, but I did recently puchase the MRP chain guide, the red E.13 32 tooth chainring, and the cane creek 40 zero stack headset that the new frame needed.

    Helidave I like the cartoonified picture of the frame.

    Bailey44,my recently purchased a MRP guide needed to be rotating more forward on the crank after a little bit of riding. It is a bit of a PIA to adjust it properly cause you can't totally line it up correctly 'cause your crank is not on the bike. Much better with it rotated forward though.
