    Hope these come out good.

    I was very upset after ripping off the Rear Stay{Disc Side},walking out
    3.5 miles uphill on this Frame. It was the third ride. A mistake on Surly's part
    for sure,QC was not there. But for 289 Dollars,that's what you get. They fixed
    it the following year with a cross brace between the two stays. I got another
    frame within two weeks and sold it. I really like the Frame,but never trusted
    it again. I posted action shots of it in the "Surly Action Shots" thread. Sorry
    to throw salt on ya all.

    T-Mobile on Devo's OD pug

    I just got back from a little gig at the Hyatt here in Monterey. Amgen Tour of California (ATOC) is there, since I dont drive a car, and of course life on the bike is the main thing for me...anyways...i went there to sign in for marshal duty tmrrw am, being that this is my locale...I rode the pug...being its my fav bike at the moment, and you'd never believe it...some guys were looking at the bike, so i unlocked it...and they rode it around. All my velo club (VCM..velo club monterey) buddies were like...dude...you're a hit! thats team T-Mobile.
    so this is the pic i got with my cell phone.
    check it out!

    My brand new Karate Monkey!

    Just built it up last week. Took her out for a couple rides and... I love it! A smooth, comfortable & stable ride that rolls over everything. I'm in love..

    The specs:
    Mary bars (never go back to traditional bars)
    Paul hubs, WTB rims, Exiwolf 2.3 tires
    disc in front, v-brake in the back at least for now

    Besides, where are all the Instigator's ?

    Instigator

    Yea thats the new hot dog mustard paintjob, its pretty sweet, I've got some stickers on it now that are pretty sick. It looks really bright in these pictures because of the sun. Also whoever was asking about discs on the instigator, I've got the Hayes HFX-9s on it with the big rotors, and they work great, never have to adjust them or anything, if they start rubbing a little I just give the brakes a hard squeeze and the pads reset for smooth rolling.
    Prices I think you can pick up just the frame online for around 275 I just bought this complete bike on ebay last fall (Sorry LBS you didnt carry it) I wanted to just buy a frameset and build it, but this was only 465 on ebay, and I think it would have cost more to steal one, so I took it. Look around though, some places want like 400 for the frame, which I was too broke to pay.

    Wow. . . that is a smokin' deal. The cheapest I could find a (new) frame for was $410 from 3ringcycles.com. As far as instigator love here is mine set up as a clyde worthy XC/AM bike:

    Question about geometry.

    What frame size is it ?
    What's the stem's length ?
    What's the overall horizontal length from the saddle's center to the handle bar ?

    The frame is a large (20"), stem is a 90mm/10 degree, and the saddle to handle bar distance is about 29.5".

    For fit reference, I'm 6'5" with a 36" inseam.

    Here is the new Cross-check that is theoretically my commuter bike, but is acting more like a 29er lately with Ritchey 700x42 ZED 'cross tires. Here it is more in commute mode with skinnier tires. I still need to add a rack.

    In any event, I am loving my Cross-check

    Long Haul Brevet Trucker

    Well, I've been enjoying my Long Haul Trucker for two years as my "Rainy-Day/Do Anything" bike. I finally got to use it on a 200K and 300K Brevet this month. So now it is truly a "Long-Haul" Trucker.

    my bean green crosscheck

    Love this bike! The bean green rocks. I got this real quick to replace a bike that broke, thinking I would get something 'nicer' later on when I had the time/money. Still hasn't happened. I cant see the point.
    I sometimes consider getting a 'real' road bike and have this for just commuting... nah! Maybe a steamroller...

    in winter. i use a 'grocery pannier' and put my backpack in it



    and the same spot in the summer. You can the pannier is empty. i probably had my bag in my hand or something.



    I have also done some triathlons, fast group rides (kind of dog in those, but it's more the motor), and long logging/ATV road rides that destroy the wheels but not the frame.
    Only boring people get bored.

    Wink Nice!!

    There's a wise saying that goes "Why fix what isn't broken?". You sound like you love your ride, so why replace it just now?? (Even though I;m looking into a S/R myself for commuting.)

    Hi Pigtire,
    Sorry for the delayed reply. My LHT is a 60cm. I was torn between the 58 and the 60cm but went with the 60 because of the longer Head Tube. My saddle hight is 34.5" from BB to Saddle Top. I use 180mm cranks. I'm 6'1" but have a 35" inseam so I normally would use a 65cm bike with a 58cm Top Tube. (Just like the old road bikes were set up) I use a shorter stem on my LHT than on my road bike and have switched to a zero-offset seat post since my saddle is so high. I've got my two bikes dialed in within 1/2" of each other.

    Happy Riding!
    Doug

    Sorry for the delay, but the short answer is - great! I've been a Lefty fan since they got Manitou damping, and it only made sense to try a 29er conversion. I can't tell that the taller head/more laid back angle makes much difference. Having 120mm travel in front means I am traveling much faster, so its like having a completely different bike vs rigid. Lot's of other things changing as I go but I haven't been able to make it suck, so its all good.

    From a surly love ride several months ago


    3 cross checks and a steam roller. Mines the greenie in the front.

    Had to get to the train station during a snow storm. stupid me didn't put the fenders on


    It's the do anything bike, including wheelies


    Recently I decided to go from a do anything long travel geared hardtail to a DH bike and a ss as my main ride.


    I ended up putting an 80mm Marzocchi on the 1x1, just not hardcore enough to make my main MTB a rigid.
