    I see you changed the color on your Surly, I will also be doing a color change. Much approved.

    That is a very, very sexy color. Have any pictures of the rack from the non-drive side? I'm interested in how well it clears the rear brake.

    Yeah, LOVE the grey. Surly, are you taking notes?

    Looks fantastic.

    Did you paint the steerer tube where you can see it through the stem?

    The font is from Surly, I didn't design the font.

    Wow, no kidding? I guess I've never been lucky enough to have seen a Straggler in the wild.

    Awesome! Gorgeous color.

    Mind to list down all your components as I am pondering a custom built Straggler too. So far the only thing I have bought is the Brooks C17 in Natural color. lol.
