    I can't compare it to anything else, but so far it's pretty awesome. Only just picked the bike up, so the high speed backyard test laps and stair climbing/descending are all the experience I have. Ask again in a few weeks after I get some time on varied surfaces.

    Whoa! Your bike looks great. What size and brand of tires are you running there? Any chance of getting a side shot of the bike. Looks great, like a classic mtn bike but with super load carrying abilities.

    Thanks! I absolutely love ridding and traveling with it. The tires are Schwalbe Marathon Mondials 26 x 2.15. They're really good on the trail and roll amazing on asphalt. I run the 700 x 40c Mondials on my Cross Check...best tires I have ever owned. I run the set back Thomson when I ride/travel with it (what you see in the pic) and my wife just uses the straight Thomson seatpost. I was really impressed how it handled (normally ride 29er's on trails) on single track with the exception of a few 10 inch drops that I forgot to negotiate (going to fast). Right after I took these pics I chased down a wild bobtail cat...but the cat had afterburners are something and just left me...but I was flying on the Deluxe.

    Thanks! It is a fleegle bar, and I couldn't be happier with it. I originally bought it (20 bucks from the USA store) just as a temporary bar until I could put a nitto promenade bar I had at home...but that never happened because the fleegle was so comfortable. Not to mention, I love taking a corner on switch backs with it. The length is perfect for control.

    Here's my Karate Monkey.

    16" frame
    Shimano wheels

    Thompson seatpost and stem
    Salsa cowbell bars
    Brooks B17 saddle
    Sram levers with bb7's
    Garmin 500

    Surly Ogre Rohloff Commuter/Apocalypse Bike

    My new Ogre. I commute 100 miles per week. Once I slap some bags and/or racks on this thing, it's also going to be my touring/adventure bike. I've only had my Desalvo single speed for several years now, and commuting to work on it sucks. This is going to be a welcome change. Love the Rohloff -- once you figure out how to put it on.

    ^ Yeah, I love riding with him- even though we don't go super far, being that he's 3 and a half, haha. But it's tons of fun. He keeps telling me he wants to add brakes that he "works with his hands"

    The iBert phase was very fun, I was sad when he outgrew it. The first time he rode on it, he was absolutely amazed. These were from about a year ago, But once he went from the balance bike to the pedal bike, he prefers pedalling over being a passenger now:

    You can go farther when they get a bit older:



    My six year old son and I have been using this configuration for the last year or so. We've done up to about 18 miles to an overnight campsite. He loves it. Now what to do when the twins are old enough to want to go next summer...

    Being of somewhat smaller stature, big bikes can sometimes look ungainly to me. This is not one of those bikes, the short steer tube stack height, the right amount of seat post, fat tires, and that RF crankset all work together really well.

    but they eventually just fall asleep. I haul the cranky cargo in my double Burley trailer, and my wife hauls all of our other stuff in the single Burley we bought before my son was born and we just had my daughter.

    Just got a new Pugsley Necro Romancer for Christmas. I had a chance to take it out for a nice ride today and couldn't believe all of the crud that I could just blow through. I wouldn't call it a fast bike, but I went through areas today that no other bike I've ever owned would have stood a chance.

    New (to me) 2010 Cross Check



    Hi there, got myself a very slightly used Surly Cross Check at 56cm and I'm loving it. Had this bike on my radar for a while and it's quite the upgrade from a Craigslist special early 90's Raleigh Tarantula.

    FSA Orbit XLII Headset
    Shimano 105 Brifters 5510
    Shimano Dura-Ace Derailleurs
    Avid Shorty 4 Brakes
    FSA Wing Pro Base bar/Handlebar
    Brooks B17 Saddle
    FSA Stem
    Shimano Ultegra 9 Speed Cassette
    AlexRims x2100 700c Wheels
    Continental Touring Plus Tires

    Have some fenders ready to go on and also a rear pannier rack too. And I need to replace the crappy seatpost as well.

    So this is where you have been hiding.

    Best pump up that tyre and go outdoors again.

    Pumped up the tyre.

    Then after it went back down, found a new tube, patched up the old one, more of tube defect than a puncture, but fixed and swapped in up front so spare tube is still 100%, just in case.

    First we checked on the cows, they seemed quite happy.
    Then we rolled along here, bit slushy, lot of windchill to the face, forgot my buff.
    Then we rolled over here, more hardpack, much nicer.
    Then the geese and ducks stopped us to check us out for any bread hiding on us as we passed the farmyard, geese where a bit hissy but let us roll through, will take a few slices of bread next time.

    Only a few miles, legs hurt after, been a while since i span pedals, best do some more soon

    Snow won't last more than a few days over here in the UK so might be another year or so before i snow ride again.

    first ride of my new to me Cross Check. I really like this ride. I bought it used on ebay in October and had emergency back surgery a couple days later. I've been literally staring at this bike in the house for the past 3 months. I can't describe how good it felt to get out on a bike again.

    Sea Monkey.

    Stretched the old legs today and spunup the Monkey, sooooooo unfit, been so long off a bike my legs have forgotten what it's like.

    Feel the burn so went for a gentle ride around town and across the beach.

    Watched the fishermen for a bit, then checked out the harbour defences in case pirates or U-boats come back again, then Monk wanted a paddle, i wasn't so keen on getting wet feet, but Monks been cooped up too long.
    Might just swap out tyres for road slicks and do some after work town circuits, build up the legs again, and it's getting lighter again, should be able to do 30mins after work before lights are needed.

    Also changed the bars and stem to a bit more downhilly set up from DMR, treated the wheels to some new track nuts and got a simple tension seeker to fit later on, i want to slam the rear wheel forwards, but have decided to go chain device over magic gear for getting chain length, means i can slam it for techy stuff and drag it back out for more normal duties and all on one chain length.
    Decided on a new mini pump as well as my last one got nicked at a race and always good to be prepared or face a long walk home.

    Monkey shots,
    Having a paddle, then we rode round the beach, small container/bulker ship moored up, when this happens it's a sign of impending bad weather and shipping takes shelter, going was quite firm on wet sand not too much sinkage on the skinny tyres and rims, gave the legs a damn good work out.


    (also getting my head round the new forum upgrades and picture posting method too, now the forums calmed down and working again)

    I've always wanted to live near a beach where I could just ride for hours. I've only been to a beach a couple times and it just seems like there's always so much to explore.

    Like anything anywhere, beaches can be exciting for finding stuff or just plain boring windy feature-less flat spaces.

    I can pedal about 5 miles west, but only at very low tides due to the boulder nature of the beach, then it reaches a natural cut off point, i have heard you can semi get round through a tunnel but that still drops off into the sea, there is a rickity old fishermans rope up over the cliff, don't fancy that even without a bike, from here anyway there is little beach to ride for quite some way.

    I can pedal Eastwards maybe 20 miles before reaching an inlet that might not be crossable, again subject to tides and cliffs, i mostly stick to a few mile stretch as i can ride 85% alright on skinny rims and tyres. Would like to try a fatty, but just don't have the terrain to play on.

    Normally go treasure hunting for fishing tackle, got around 20kg of lead weights stashed now, might cash them in if i make 50kg (value of scrap metal) sometimes find net floats washed up, no mini subs (the u-boats are in deep water further down the coast) found out where the Sherman tank remains are so will go Tank Hunting soon, not much left to see of that, i think CoastKid would enjoy it here for a holiday

    Best beach find so far was a washed up float net. Took me several days to untangle it and clean it up, only needs 3 minor repairs, but a serviceable fishing net with floating topline about 50' long and 8' depth, was hard work getting it home, haven't a clue what to do with it, but it looks cool.

    As i get rolling i will post more, think Coastkid style but on a 29er not a Pug, oh and i am in the UK alongside whats called the "Bristol Channel" on the English side of the channel, Wales is on the other, many many miles away from Coastkid up in Scotland.
