    finally some pics of the new Ogre. see previous posting a page or so back for detail. VO stainless fenders to come soon, and i'll dabble with the use of bar ends and maybe different stem options. at this point, i need to get out and ride to sort out the feel but the short one's i've had are good as it stands. weather hasn't cooperated for any decent length ride. leaning towards a Tubus rack, but we'll see based on the best fit options. opinions? i was heading off to work, hence the funny look and unfortunately, not by bike, but taking advantage of a sunny break. this is a 24" bike, i'm 6.5 long legs. if anyone is interested, i'll take photos with fenders, etc.

    Hello,

    would you mind measuring the distance from the middle of the Bottom Bracket to the very top of the saddle!

    Thank you Sir !!

    Hi CrazyLion

    If it's any help to you, my 24" Ogre is currently at 830mm from top of saddle to centre of bottom bracket.

    It's 827mm in this picture

    surly ogre

    Hope that helps.

    That's one neat looking build! What handlebar did you use?

    Cheers sea monster, the bar's a Truvativ Stylo Team. 680mm width, 20mm rise & 9% sweep. Any narrower, or wider than that just feels wrong to me now ( road bike excluded )

    Thanks, BareNecessities. That's a nice bar at a nice price. I wonder whether it could accommodate straight bar ends (such as the ones below), or whether I would need something more "angled", given the 9% sweep.

    Straight bar ends would come out at an uncomfortable angle on anything with more than about 5% sweep imho. The type that angle in from the bar, as opposed to those that curve round midway are ok.

    The Titec Pluto are the most comfortable ones I've used & they worked just fine, though I preferred using bar ends on a slightly narrower bar.



    They were quite expensive & I'm not sure if they're still available, but I've seen near identical looking bar ends from Bontrager, Bianchi & Ritchey + some fairly inexpensive direct from China ebay copies.

    Considering how unfashionable they are, there's still a lot of choice out there

    Your the man

    thanks mate, that's exactly the saddle height I need as well and now I know 24" is the right size ...

    this forum is superb by the way. Very kind and helpful people here

    cheers

    No problem mate; If it's any further help with sizing, that build has 30mm of headset spacers, a 90mm 10% stem + the 20mm rise handlebars mentioned above. This puts the bars about level with the saddle, which is a bit higher than I'm used to, but my back's not getting any younger

    Oh, and as a testament to the fabulousness of the Ogre, I'll be getting a second one this year.

    This one will be the utility bike/trailer puller that the first one was intended to be

    You sure you don't want a monkey and switch around the parts?

    I would definitely consider that if Surly made the Karate Monkey in XXL. So far, the only XXL models that I'm aware of in their range are Ogre, Moonlander, LHT & LHT Disc.

    I'm quite curious as to the reasoning behind these models. I would have thought that the Cross Check was Surly's most popular frameset

    been using my ogre pretty much exclusively for commuting, so i decided to build a bombproof commuter wheelset.
    ordered up some 36 hole xt hubs and gonna use dt comp spokes to lace them to sun rhynolites.
    should be pretty stout....hopefully have them finished by next weekend!

    jump back, ogre in black attack

    My new black ogre is coming along nicely. I went balls-out on this build. This one goes to eleven (alfine).

    This was the day I got it:



    This was yesterday (I always clamp the seatpost, but lightly clamped the top tube for balancing it level to take this picture):



    Currently:



    I just want to point out that it's not green.

    *Archer voice* Is it black, or is it a slightly darker shade of black?

    Sweet looking rig. I probably would have gotten a black one if they offered it, but I have to admit I like the Army green. The biggest problem with non-black is color matching if you switch to the Fargo v2 fork.

    Agreed. I went with black, just in case. Most of the fork options seem to come pre-painted in black, and prefer the fork's color to match the frame. Sometimes a black fork on a colored frame looks really out of place, although it seems to work better with some colors.

    Isn't the Fargo fork pretty much exactly the same as the Ogre's, but with forward-angled (Stainless) dropouts? I considered an Enabler for a minute, but got scared and decided not to join the fat front crowd.

    (sorry about the crappy phone pics) The cables are super long, incase I need to throw on some apehangers later. (I didn't want to cut them down, until I get everything dialed)



    I really like these non-turn tensioners, because they don't imprint the dropouts with divots and they make disc/centering/chain-tension... a simple and precise process:
