    Score!

    Picked up this 1x1 yesterday. Time to strip some of these parts and do some tweaking! The owner had been using it as a commuter, so the orange paint job was done for visibility. It's an '04 frame.

    Anybody want a set of hawaiian fenders?

    I kinda look it, too. Interesting choice in components.

    I can't say I've ever seen Travel Agents mounted like that!

    Travel Agents are usually used for road brake levers that operate cantilevers or V-brakes, or in the case of your bike, disks.

    They are the "snail shell" looking things that are installed in-line with your brake cables. They allow the brake levers that you have on there to pull more cable of your disc brakes.

    Pug at work:



    (bringing Thing 2 to pick up Thing 1 after school). Funny thing, the other day, Thing 1, 6 yrs old, asked for a Pugsley for a bday present when he grows up and leaves the house.

    Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll strip 'em (and so much more) to simplify and fatten this rig. Again, thanks for taking the time.

    My new CC

    I just built up a CC a week or two ago. I love the bike. Every day I wake up and the first thing I do is hop on this bike and ride wherever it takes me. This last adventure ride I did I ended up accidentally finding a hobo village in the middle of the woods on the outskirts of my town. Who knows what crazy crap I will get into with this bike. Its my new do all, end all machine.

    Currently building this monkey in anticipation of transferring to Iowa State next summer. 90% done and realize a pugsley would've been a better choice...go figure!

    Let's keep the orange theme going, shall we?

    New Maxxis 2.7" meats, new bar, brake levers. Behold my 'new' combo' goat for town and trail.

    Heavy? You betcha!

    Thought I'd stop by and spread more Surly love.....

    I was calling out my buddy all day on this one. It's been haunting him for a while. Didn't expect him to hit it. I fumbled for my phone to take a video and he rolled up to it before I was ready. At least I captured a half way decent pic...

    He and his Instigator made it look sooooo smooth!

    Long Haul Woody!

    I bought pair of wood fenders to finish off the Long Haul Trucker from http://www.woodysfenders.com/ I also set it up with the new Tektro Long Reach Brakes. Here are the updated pictures.

    Have a Surly Day!

    Really nice setup ya got there. Those fenders seal the deal. If I wasn't so infatuated with that doggone Big Dummy coming soon, the LHT would be my next pick.

    Kudos.

    Thanks mangoman,
    It's fun to roll up next to another rider and see the expression on their face!
    Surly's Big Dummy looks like a hoot!! If I were still commuting to work that would be the way to go. Now lets see . . .a Big Dummy Woodie. That's the ticket!
    Happy Riding,

    Hi TrekJeff,
    Occasionally they put a set of their fenders on eBay and no one bids them up. That’s how I got mine.

    Thanks,

    Or a Pug woody. Those sure are gorgeous fenders. I don't suppose you've taken them through a puddle yet? I am curious how the flat fenders do. I actually have some flat pug fenders cut out of plastic, boy are they hideous, but I haven't mounted them yet. Need to get out to the zip-tie store.

    I haven't been caught in a deluge yet, just some damp streets. I had the Planet Bike Freddie Fenders w/flaps on it before. Those worked pretty good but my feet would always get wet. It's pretty hard to stay dry at speed but the Freddies did help greatly. Keeping water off my rear is the biggest help!!

    Here are a couple of new pics of the Monkey. I got rid of the H-bars, and the xt brakes in favor of the carbon bar and avid ultimates.

    Destickied

    till they come out with the black Surly stickers. Can't say enough about this bike after logging some more miles. Got rid of the z150 and put on a 05 z1 fr 1 which took the bb and ha down some. This thing just rips on the nasty dh trails of the east. I will keep this bike forever.

    Yeahh..I said to heck with it and made my own. Not as intriguing, but it's my first set. I'll see how they do matched up with my Nokians and the snow commute.

    Gotta love the versatility of surly products! Here the monkey goes roadie at the expense of the track bike. The monkey needs a triple, it is far too fast for a 1x9 set-up.

    What size ring do you have on it now?

    Man, I was planning on trying a different type of bar on my Monkey build because I have Mary bars on two bikes already but I really like the look of them on the Monkeys.

    Yeah, I'm guilty of hoping on the bandwagon with the marys on the 9er. I figured there must be some reason every 29er owner runs them, I enjoy them. I'm using a 36t up front.

    My Surlys

    I'm sure I've posted pics of these before but since they're always getting little changes and tweaks I thought I'd post recent photos of the fleet.

    The Cross Check is the most ridden of the lot. Most recent change is a new set of wheels; XT hubs and Velocity Deep-Vs held together by DT butted spokes. One of these days I may put matching fenders on - or not.


    Then comes the heavy hauler. The Instigator makes a great mule for the Xtracycle.


    The Monkey is also in its own thread elsewhere but posted here just for completeness of my Surly stable.
    Bikeys is good fun!

    Great-looking ride. Actually, the pictures you took are super sharp too--what kind of camera are you using?

    Also, what does that rig weigh in at? Looks pretty damn sturdy.

    Thanks. Using a Nikon D50. You can get one pretty cheap these days.

    Not sure of the weight, but it ain't light...that's fo' sho! Those 2.7" tires and tubes put this bike in the FAT category. I've stripped it down a bit since that photo, but it's still no speed demon:

    The fenders are Planet Bike Cascadia 29ers. The only tricky part with mounting them on the Monkey is the lack of clearance between the tire and v-brake cable. I added a link to the chain, moving the axle back, giving me more clearance over the tire.

    For the Brooks, I try not to get them wet, but I think the main thing is not to ride them when wet, so they don't stretch out.

    How did you make your own wood fenders? Any threads or links for that? I'd love to try it myself.

    96er 1x1

    Here is my 1x1 dressed up as a 96er.

    <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/mtbfrk/69er/photo#5160158580616253970"><img src="http://lh4.google.com/mtbfrk/R5yQ465Q0hI/AAAAAAAACDg/mkUWN0bGLhc/s800/DSC01906.JPG" /></a>

    Next maybe it will try on it`s full 29er outfit.

    This is the most versatile bike that I own. And what a great ride.

    Sorry for the tardy reply regarding the fenders!

    Here is the links to CRC:-

    The fenders (Mudguards) are Topeak Defenders:-

    They seem to fit the Pug well and are easy to adjust.

    Cheers, Dr FG.

    Dang those are some high volume looking tires! Check out the sidewalls - like 3'' tall! Are those wider rims required for these tires?

    i've got them on 46mm wide rims right now, but had them on 32 mm rims for a few weeks. the wider the rim, the better the float in snow.

    Just another purple Pugs. It's my first Surly.

    Little did I know that I was not just buying a cool bike, but a whole culture.

    Cross Check

    Just received my custom built Cross Check yesterday... I'm pumped



    Currently singlespeed with a flip flop hub, still planning on fenders and a rack to complete the setup. Will probably tweak the stem too once I dial in the fit.

    Digging it so far!

    Nice build!

    I've got a Surly nice rack (rear) that I use on my Pugsley and my old commuter but I'm thinking of getting a 62cm Cross-Check complete. Do you get any heal strike with your rear panniers?
    I'm looking at buying Ortlieb Backrollers.

    Thanks

    My Monkey. Originally I'd planned to build it up into a monstercross to use in place of my Kona this fall. After trying my hand at xc racing on my geared Fisher and totally sucking I decided racing on a singlespeed would be a lot more fun. Earlier this week I pulled all the cross parts off the Monkey and built it up ss with stuff I had laying around. My Fisher 29er is a great bike but the Surly is just...I dunno...cooler.

    Shakedown ride today at Oxbow Park just outside Portland. I don't have the legs for it yet but I'm racing it at Bear Springs Trap this weekend up on Mt. Hood.
