    Halo Twin Rail 28's

    I highly recommend Halo Twin Rails...Universal Cycles carries them here in the states. They're made for both road and trail.

    In preparation for a tour beginning at the end of the year I'm getting in some longer rides with some weight in the mountains and messing around with various bar ends to see what I like. These Ritchey bar ends were pretty good but I still feel the need to get the bars narrower in order to have them feel right. However, having the bar ends at the appropriate width makes the regular grip postion feel very narrow and I'm not sure what compromise to make.

    You could put the bar ends inboard of your grips/shifter/levers so you could have the wider flat bar position and a narrower bar end cruising position. This might be an ok compromise unless you intend to use the bar ends for power climbing position.

    Or keep those there and put another set inboard to give even more options.

    My Latest Surly



    Surly Steamroller. 56cm. Gravel Grinder. Commuter. Dirt Road Explorer.
    I have already gotten rid of the stock Surly Open Bars. Currently running an Easton flat bar and will soon be running some Race Face drop bars. Just waiting on my brake levers to come in. I'll cut the fork down once i decide on my final stem/bar combo.

    Full specs. On my blog.

    Well, I sold my Karate Monkey. Fully ridged just wasn't for me once I relocated to Colorado. I tried to make it work by throwing a Reba on the front but it still didn't work well for me. Anyway, I built up a Spearfish to take over xc duty. And of course I still have my trusty daily, the Cross Check.

    Agreed, although I'd say the bike needs fenders. But maybe the poster lives somewhere where it's dry in the summer.

    Very nice looking LHT.

    LHT and Mt Hood.

    Went on an overnight bike camping trip with a friend into the Mt Hood National Forest. We ended up exploring a dirt FS Rd which was quite the adventure. Well, maybe not an adventure but a really good time. Stayed at an abandoned campground. The next morning we finished the rest of the road which spilled us out at High Rock with a fantastic view of Mt Hood. We ended up taking a gravel road down to Timothy Lake and then bombed down quiet paved FS roads to the Clackamas River. I love my LHT. While it was at its limit on some of the dirt sections of the FS road, it otherwise handled the trip just fine. I think one of the things I love most about it is its stability at speed. I've never experienced shimmy on this bike. I guess the one thing I'd change is that if I were doing it over, I probably would go with the 26" version.

    We rode FS Rd 4610 which starts right off of Hwy 224 by Prometory Park. Rds 57, 58, 46 and 42 are all fantastic paved FS roads. Rd 42 is about one of the best roads ever. Look at Google maps. I'll try and post a map of our route here later today.

    Lolo Pass is also a great road that heads up out of ZigZag and goes over towards Parkdale. From the summit of Lolo Pass it turns to dirt as you drop down towards Parkdale. It's great. Nice views of the Mtn. Just grab a map and explore. It's hard to get lost out there on the FS Rds as they all lead somewhere, or nowhere, in which case you just backtrack.

    Pet Ambulance

    I picked up my BD complete on Monday but hadn't really gotten a chance to ride it due to being sick and work. This morning I needed to get our cat Garp to the vet. The poor little guy has a UTI or something. I figured I could get him to the vet and me back home faster by taking him there on the Dummy. It was really a crash course in loading and packing the Dummy. It all went well and Garp got dropped off at the vet without any problems. I took my time riding home and really enjoyed riding the Dummy. It really does "ride like a bike" in spite of the long wheelbase.

    I swapped out the stock bars, post and saddle for stuff I had laying around--Open Bar, Salsa post and Brooks saddle. There's really not much else I would change right now other than putting on a Moloko bar when that becomes available as it has better options for mounting a light.

    Here's a picture with Garp in his carrier loaded on the bike.

    took this pic today while out for a ride on my LHT. First ride since I ditched the bar end shifters and installed a set of 105 flight deck brake/shift levers. One of the nicest riding bikes I've ever ridden.

    I went for a ride yesterday after grad school mid-terms, it was good to get out! I'm a better bike rider than I am a photographer. I recently moved to the town were I live, I discovered this dam/waterfall. Upstream is totally filled with sand and rocks that have flowed down the canyon.

    This has got to be the oldest and longest lasting MTBR thread I've ever been a part of. Post pics of your Surly!!!

    An "Early Happy Birthday (Nov.5,2005)" to the Surly Board, and a definite "Happy Birthday to Raven", the same 1x1 frame I've had all these years.

    SS Cross Check in da house

    Just got this in Wednesday. Added my saddle, post, bars, King HS, levers and grips. Haven't figured out what pedals I'm going to use yet. Rides GREAT with the fat Conti tires.

    Looks great. It's a good idea for surly to offer the CC as a complete single speed. What sort of riding will yours see?

    Thanks buddy. It'll do everything from commuting, beer runs, lunch runs with my wife on her Pink Trek Earl, and general screwing around.

    I've had many CCs, always miss them when they're gone. I have a set of drop bars with tape and levers, and Canti brakes that can be put on in about 15 minutes in case I want to ride it that way. The beauty is in the versatility.

    That's a nice shot. I see that there is still some green where you are. I'm looking out my window at snow falling.

    Dude, that looks great. I really want to convert my CC back to SS and put an Open Bar on it. Probably the next day that it rains I'll do it. I might have to check out those tires.

    Thanks man

    The tires are the Continental Tour Ride 700X42s that come with the bike, and they ride quite nicely. They're the steel bead so pretty heavy, but cush.

    The one thing to note is the sizing. Anyone thinking of buying a SS flat bar or running flat bars on their current CC, you need a long stem to keep the cockpit from getting cramped going from drops to flat. I run a 56cm Cross Check normally and with drops it's perfect - with 100mm stem and risers it's pretty upright. If I'd gone with the 58cm to better match a MTB fit, it would be too long with drops, so it's a compromise of sorts.

    It must be getting close to winter because my CC grew racks and fenders.

    Hey,
    iam riding Surly since 4 years and just decided to replace my alu/carbon Crosser with this nice pice of steel. Nice fit, good feel. First i was concerned about to go with disc brakes, but finally i went with mini-v's and their are amzing with the newer shimano sti's.



    Regards from Germany,
    Michael


    ps: Nice black Karate Monkey!
    Regards,
    Michael

    That looks really good and fun. The interchangable single speed front wheel is a nice touch.

    Just kidding, it's a Pugsley fork. They are 135mm spaced and offset like the rear of th frame. This way you can swap the front wheel to the back in case something goes wrong with your transmission

    The gumwall tires are Challenge Grifo XS 33mm Cross Tires. The Brooks is the Imperial Standard in Honey. The bar tape is Adargo Leather Honey, and the bag is a Zimbale Honey (the Brooks bag is a bit too small). Here are the full specs on the dedicated thread I put up:

    Dumb life.

    I sold some stuff via the interweb and took it to UPS this morning. I then rode around the wet streets of PDX for a while.

    I'm hoping to do an overnight camping trip on the Clackamas River sometime within the next month and planning on using the Dummy. It's not that I'll be carrying a ton of stuff but I certainly won't have to worry about overpacking. It'll give me a chance to see how the Dummy feels over longer distances although I anticipate it'll be fine.

    Man, I really want to build a Dummy for taking the BBQ / chairs / etc to the beach in the summer. Ogre + trailer is a smarter move for now though.

    My new born Fargsley. I will probably go back to straight bars eventually, but first I want to try it out like this as a commuter.

    Awesome... I have never seen one in person, and did not know how they were built. That makes soo much sense. Good looking bike.

    Looks like you are set up for a long tour Gonenomad. Have you done any long tours on your troll yet? What handlebar and bar ends are you using and are you going to keep that set up for touring?

    Which happens to many people with Shimano M525 rear hubs. Avoid those things like the plague!!!

    What is the problem with the Deore hubs? I have been using them for commuting/ touring for a few years with no issue. I rebuild them once a year and they are good to go.
