    I'd happily shave my beard, along with the rest of my hair, to have a few more Surly bikes.

    I don't wonder. I know it is the first Moonie over the pass. I've seen a KM make the trip but that is about it.

    Surly already makes bikes that are too heavy to ride. That is why I just look at mine and post nonsense on mtbr.

    You aren't supposed to ride them? Aw crud! I've been doing it all wrong.

    Wait... wait...

    I did look at mine and took a picture of it having a drink at this bar:

    all 4 of my surlys have been across the pass including an awful single speed trip...

    yes,apparently i got the whole weight weinie thing wrong,you're not supposed to add weight,seems they like to take weight off...and here i was thinking that thundering past leg shavers on a 40 lb bike was the whole point!

    ^^ Hey you're right next to my apartment!

    And I'm about 90% sure I saw that bike today passing by Midtown FW head towards Sabo. If it was you I was on the orange thing with the fat front.

    Senior Pink, we're back in Colorado now and that bike would've only been seen traveling the streets of Denver today.

    My Institractor. Nate and Chunky Monkey Trail Extreme tires on 35mm wheels. Nate is too wide to fit in chainstay, so I cut of side knobs.

    Yesterday was my first trip on proper singletrack with flats, new bars, and the DIY framebag. Somewhere between 25-30 miles.

    I love this bike.

    so what do you think of the krampus with regular 29er wheels on it? is it still krampus-y? or does it become a stiffer framed karate monkey? have you tried it single speed with the rabbit holes?
    i have a karate monkey and a krampus,and i was pretty reluctant to put a 29er+ on the front of the monkey reasoning that there was no reason to krunkey the monkey since i already had a krampus,but it turns out i just love the extra float and cushion provided by the big tire up front,and also it still rides like a karate monkey,just with less arm and wrist abuse...
    anyway,half the fun of owning surlys is changing things around...

    I swapped wheels because the rohloff is impossible for me to ride in this terrain - it is pretty slow to engage... I will probably put the knard on the front... I do miss the float.

    Krampus on Mt St Helens.

    Got out for a ride up the lower eastern slopes of Mt St Helens. The trails--Ape Canyon and The Plains of Abraham-- were great but it was hot. Real hot, in the 90s, and quite exposed on the plains. I'll head out that way again this fall. I continue to love my Krampus.

    I like them. Only 4 rides on them. They remind me of nevegals a bit. Getting the pressure just right on the front has been hit and miss. But I got it dialed in on my second ride today. Gobs of traction. Not as much volume as the Knard, so I am missing some of that cushion I was used to. Been great for New England rocks and roots and wet rocks and roots. Haven't been into too much mud yet - but a couple of places that were torn up by ATVs and motos they did fine in. They do throw a lot on the rider and the bike though!

    The rear is interesting as I can feel when I transition to the side knobs. At first it bugged me but I'm getting used to it. So far

    Would love to ride out west and in the PNW. I visited St. Helens in 2000. Amazed at the landscape left behind.
