    I find it impossible to keep this bike on the tarmac. Even on skinny (for me) 35s it sniffs out some dirt on most rides.

    gave her a bath, polished the cranks and tossed on some semi-slick 45's...if fatties fit fine, why not take advantage?!
    ...then cruised on down to the park for a photo shoot.

    My cheapest bike and my favorite.

    I was screwing around with my camera on this evening's after dinner ride:







    My favorite dingle speed setup: 34/40 front, with a 16 (fixed) and 16/19 (White duo freewheel) in the rear. There's just enough dropout to take up the 6 tooth difference in the front chainring, giving me three usable gears: 40x16, 34x16, and 34x19. Roughly, 68", 57" and 48".

    That is a really nice gearing setup. I've been wondering how much play there is, but I was just thinking in terms of single chainring + flipflop

    I had to use a half link to get this, and the 40x16 just barely hangs onto the front of the dropouts, but it works well so far.

    With a flip/flop, I only rarely adjust the gearing because it's such a hassle (only when I want to change from fixed to free for a while). But this setup makes gearing changes a <1 minute affair--it's easy when you don't have to remove the rear wheel, just loosen the QR and adjust it. I've changed gearing mid ride, for instance, when coming home into a headwind. I wish Surly made a 16/19 dingle cog...

    Good to hear you're happy using QR rather than bolt-on w/ that setup, that's something else I've wondered about.

    And you don't have chainline problems using the dos eno side? Don't need a chain guide thingy? This is all great to hear!

    I did have the wheel slip out last night, but that was just after inserting the wheel with the QR not particularly tight. No troubles before or since then.

    The chainline doesn't quite line up, but even crosschained (small front ring, small rear ring) it's only a bit noisier, not objectionable at all. I think between the lateral flexiness of gearie chains (I use an 8 spd chain) and the long stays of the CC, there's enough slop here to cover for the imperfect chainline.

    Updated pics............ Just put on the Woodchipper bars and new stem.......have not even had a chance to ride it yet except for the short test run down the road to test lever position. I think I am going to love this set up.

    messed with some fit stuff since then, bars and saddle are higher, but you get the idea. absolutely bomb-proof commuter. Super versatile too. I've done singletrack, offroad touring and road riding on it. Only thing left is deep snow (i've ridden it in 3+ inches though...i needed bigger tires though)

    EDIT-updated pics

    Hi Johny, nice to see your set-up on CC.. really love it. what stem do you use on that CC ? what degree of angle it has ? it looks fit to CC geometry... I like it. Ehmm.. 1 thing what brake do you use ?
