Anyone else battling this?
    Shoe Goo? RTV? Some sort of epoxy? Shouldn't be too hard to get it stuck back on. Remove the existing adhesive. I don't think "77" or any of the other 3M sprays would hold it; not 3-D enough for something like that.

The only problems I had were the toe overlap, which was pretty bad with 35s and fenders and size 13 feet, and it was pretty harsh feeling, especially on Chicago's terrible roads. I never really loved drop bars either, but I got used to them.

    The Ogre is much smoother with the 45s I have on, and feels more manueverable, kinda "flickable." No toe overlap at all, and I like the more upright position, although it does feel a bit slower, and any sort of illusions I had about looking cool and fast are long gone. I have more confidence tackling crumbling pavement and metal grate bridges too.
    Thanks for that, sounds like it'd be more suitable as a replacement for my LHT than a CC. Since the LHT is a touring build and the CC is a fast SS commuter. Can i replace the LHT with an Ogre, tempted, but ive just bought a ton of stuff to pimp it out

    I used tubular tyre tape to stick my headtube badge down - seems fine. I also had to chase the threads on bb and ream out the headtube - so tight the headset cup wouldn't go in at first!!

    Thanks for the glue suggestions!

    I'm 5' 11" with an inseam of 34. I got the 18 Ogre, but haven't been on it yet to verify its correct. I think it'll be fine. Remember its as much about reach as it is stand over. I think there's becoming pretty good data of this sort on a Karate Monkey post. Check it out, the frames are identical as for dimensions and angle.

    Anyone else checked their gusset void at the top of the down tube? Did yours get powder coated under there?

    I went in to order my frame/fork and it looks like my shop can't get it out of MN until March. Utah may have it sooner..... and here I am ready to build and can not move forward.

    Sorry Dalton,
    When I ordered mine a couple of weeks ago it was reportedly the last one (18). There were 2 available at noon, one of those was gone by 2:00 when I put in my order. My LBS went through QBP since he didn't have one in the shop.

    Anyone not want their fork?

    If anyone has an Ogre fork from one of the framesets or completes (Army Green, w/ Anything Cage braze-ons) please LMK. I'm considering one for a project.

    I'm 5'7" and have an 18" - I definitley wouldn't want to go smaller. Not sure what my inseam is and it's irrelevant for sizing a bike anyway

    Ogre Build

    Here are a couple of shots of the one I'm working on. I'm using it for commuting through the winter in Salt Lake City, but also hope to set it up for touring on & off road. I bought the complete bike & tweaked a few things.

    Nice. How do you like the Ergon grips? Are those the cork ones?

    I like the grips a lot, they're super comfortable. They're not cork.

    Still haven't been on it. Got tires mounted and bottom bracket installed today. Headed out of town it maybe a couple of weeks before I get it finished.

    Hey, Surlyogreguy (can we call you SOG for short?!) - that's a tasty ride you have there! I put a Brooks B17 on mine. They are great saddles, I have 3.

    has any one tried schwalbe 2.4 or wtb 2.55 tires yet? Will they fit?
    Is a quick release stable anywhere on the sliders, or do you need bolt on?

    For SS? I think you'll be fine with a QR. I haven't tried 2.4s, I tried my Nevegal 2.2s on and they fit with plenty of room, they have a pretty wide profile with the side knobs, there shouldn't be any problem clearing 2.5s. You'll have to use the Monkey Nuts to position the wheel farther out in the dropouts though.

    Yes, I don't imagine you'll find many nutted geared wheels out there. QR works fine, no slipping.

    it's pretty easy to pull out an axle and change it to a threaded bolt on.

    looks sweet, did you cut that rear fender to fit/clear the front derailleur and rear tire clearance ? i'm gettin one soon from my lbs, just gotta wait for them to fill up their order queue. using it for the same things, hopefully it will make for a comfortable commuter, 10 miles one way paved on various grades of road.

    edit: lbs ordered frame+fork expected on march 5th. updates to follow in a bit.

    Anyone happen to know if the topeak child seat rack will fit on the ogre? Annoying rack, made for 26" bikes, but it should wok with the location of the rack mounts.

    Here's the Ogre. . .

    Hey all,
    Here's my ride, got the official first miles yesterday and had a great time. My skis have been collecting dust this winter, but the hiking and biking has been great!

    So this is what I put together:
    Frame 18" (I'm 5'11" with 34 inches of ground clearance)
    Mavic 719 32 hole wheels
    Shimano Deore XT hubs (also 32 hole, I discovered one day that it works best to match the number of holes on the wheel with the number on the hub! )
    Truvative Firex crank/bb
    KMC chain
    Brooks B17 saddle
    Origin 8 bars and stem 90x5
    Seat post and pedals came from a box of stuff I had
    Avid BB7 brakes with 160mm rotors and Avid levers
    Specialized fast track tires
    Wal-mart grips
    Barends are out of the parts box. They may be dated, but I rediscovered how much I like riding with them.
    I tried to hold the bike while I stood on the scale, roughly 25.5-26#. I need to take it to a shop and borrow the scale

    I've got a set of paul compact love levers ordered and a surly tugnut, but they're not here yet.

    Over.
    Flat.

    Looks great! I wish I could use mine offroad, we've had a super mild winter too, but that just means all the trails are mud. Grrr.

    The post is in line and the saddle sits about mid rail on it. I'm running a little bit shorter stem than I do on my Moots, 90 vs. 110. I like the feel of the reach on the Ogre. I wouldn't be surprised if I get a shorter stem on the Moots to replicate the Ogre. The bars are very similar on both rigs.

    Mud, we have some of that too, the trick is to get out after the air temp warms up but before the mud melts. Hard to do during the week for us working types, but weekends maybe.

    I have 2.35" Big Apple slicks on mine and it and they fit fine w/plenty of room. The rear required monkey nuts to slide the wheel back a bit though.

    Did you need to shorten the rear fender due to a clearance issue?

    Nicest looking Ogre yet. I was debating between a KM and Ogre, and ultimately ordered the KM. It's on backorder and your bike is making me have second thoughts.
    Enjoy the ride!

    Surly Ogre Build in STL

    Just picked the Ogre up this past weekend from Maplewood Bicycle and haven't gotten around to riding it off-road yet. The Jones loop bar seems very nice and comfy.

    The build is a mix of new components and some other pieces from my salsa dos niner tear down. The brake lines still need chopped down and the bar needs taped in place of the grips. Going to get fit up better so the stem height/length is in limbo right now.

    Build
    --18" medium ogre
    --Full XT kit, 2x10, 26/38 rings - the brake levers are sweet and feel terrific.
    --thomson post (prior)
    --selle italia slr (prior) - may get the boot for something more 'long haul'
    --eggbeaters (prior)
    --bontrager race wheels (new off my sf100)
    --surly nice rack (beef! pretty sure I could tow a guy holding a 30 pack back there)
    --bob nutz for a dedicated hitch zone for the bob trailer
    --ritchey speed max cross tires for the gravel and lightweight xc trails
    --not shown - brooks leather bar tape
    --planet x bike fenders (wide to run full xc tires - I want options)

    Final weight came in at 30.5lb - not too bad considering the rack. The build ended up costing a bit more than the stock offering but I selected everything I wanted and am happy how it turned out.

    I already had a KM and had been thinking about getting an around gravel/trail/tourer/ do it all camper and when I heard about the Ogre and the fact it has the same geometry, I was sold. It took a bit of effort for the shop to source one - they seem to be in high demand at the moment. Maplewood Bicycle here in St. Louis did a great job and are very easy to deal with.

    This bike is my trail maintenance army machine, back 40 adventurer and gravel grinder tour bus. Quite the opposite of the Superfly hundy but just as much fun.

    Here's some blurry camphone pics.






    There's a lot going on here.... Bob nutz attachment, fender, disk brake, rack, chainstay caliper, monkey nuts.... I've been shown a best practices procedure on changing a flat. Not tooooo bad, but not something to look forward to either.

    I like you're set up nativeson. Those bars are next on my list. What saddle and post do you have?

    You're right about the three bottle bosses on the down tube. Either for an anything cage or the ability to mount your bottle in different places.

    I added button head bolts to all of my empty braze-ons until I need them. Just seemed like it would keep the grit out.

    saddle is a velo orange, brooks knockoff. seatpost is an old bontrager (i believe) of my 90's rock lobster. bars are awesome for what i use 'em for. i'll edit a parts list later.

    in the mean time here's a few teaser pics of a solo overnight in henry coe park, 2nd largest state park in norcal. only about 35 miles away by car. shakedown ride, bike handled amazingly well, might need a larger rotor up front. as always steeper than it looks. packed way too much, it looks like i'd be gone for weeks, where else you gonna put a twelve pack? always geekin out on my kit.

    I got married in a pair of vans like that. Of course they were black/white checks though

    Nice pics! Question from your other pics... do the brake bosses just thread out of the fork? and did you not remove them for a (cargo related?) reason?

    I ordered my ogre frame/fork this weekend and I'm giddy.

    Nice pictures. Can't imagine that you didn't have a good time. Are you in the E. Bay? Walnut Creek/Mt Diablo area? Your pictures look similar to those posted by Grant from Rivendell, like where his crew do a lot of their bike camping.

    Oops. I just reread your post and realized you said where you were. Close by Mt Diablo. You can see the similarity to locations.

    actually grew up in E.Bay....coe is a part of the diablo range, hence the similar landscapes/geology. it's definitely got a nice old western california feel to it. Diablo Range - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia i like that dude's blog, follow it a lot and go to many of the places he goes to in marin and sonoma counties. california's just so big, some of the best adventures are right out the door. i do like rivendell's but the price could get me another full suspension.

    left the bosses on, dunno why. in the front i used 'em to attach and old man mountain rack that's been cycled through various bikes.

    I'm an SF native living in Portland now. For all the miles I did in Marin I never really rode in the E.Bay. If I were ever to move back I'd definitely ride over that way more. Living in SF it was so convenient to just ride across the bridge and into the Headlands.

    Great images, looking forward to seeing more. I probably get in any bike camping trips until July or so. Spring is filled with randonneuring and build up to the Cascade 12000k.

    Few more weeks

    @slimhazy

    I will have my Ogre very soon built complete. It took awhile because there were so many orders and what not. I think there will be a surge of builds posted in the next few months.

    I ordered mine on the 25th Jan 2012. Bought all components while i was waiting.

    Should receive the Ogre by friday. Will build weekend. Post pics next week. Very excited.

    I can tell you right now, that I would build an Ogre any day over the KM. It was the greatest, but with Ogre off it is a not brainer. Good luck to you but the KM is still the best after Ogre.

    Later

    The Ogre looks awesome, but IMO, the Salsa Mariachi with a Fargo fork is the killer combo. You get a vertical dropout with the ability to still run an IGH (no resetting the chain tension every time you remove the R. Wheel), and it's a little bit lighter as well. I'm 90 percent done with mine built around a Rohloff, can't wait to get it out there! The extra braze-ons on the DT and fork were the suggestion of Cass Gilbert, a friend of mine who is touring on a Rohloff equipped Troll. Google whie out riding

    Here's mine folks. still have a little left to complete the build (attach RD cable, front brake), but am waiting for a part or two still. Anyway, I'm excited with how it turned out and wanted to get in on some of the fun posting my Ogre.



    Enjoy the ride!

    Ogre change-up

    I ran SS for a little while but needed to get set up for a tour soon, so I added gearing and racks in the last couple of weeks. Surly's rack are impressive. They do limit access to the fork braze-ons but I was still able to mount my pump on them. Just no water bottles. No big deal. I put a 12-34 cog set on the rear. That 34 looks like a pie plate back there, but the climbing ability will be nice. My Brooks saddle gets better with every ride.

    yo flatfendershop, was that surly front rack pretty straightfoward bolt on mounting? or did you half to do any modifications, did it clear the brake caliper easy? just wondering cause another gut i know had to do some mods to mount that rack on his fargo. thanks.

    The front rack was straight forward. Surly sends a boat load of hardware with them so you have options to configure. The only "mod" I had to make on the front was a stack of washers about 3/8" thick on the lower mount between the stainless steel tab and the fork eyelet. I did this so the bottom of the rack would flare out to clear the BB7 brake caliper. It only really needed to be done on the left, but I did the right also just to make it symmetrical. The longer bolt that was needed as a result was in the kit.

    I don't know the fargo fork, but the reason I got the Surly racks was to match the mounting config on the Surly fork. It does.

    my ogre build...

    My Ogre build, about 2 months old. About half the parts are new and the other half off of a Giant Seek 0 which was an ill advised purchase (WAY too uncomfortable to replace my trusty 15 year old steel Specialized Milano).

    I showed some detail on rear dropout area as it is pretty tight, BOB nutz, rack mount, Surly Trailer mount, fenders, etc.
