    As the morning sun thawed the frozen ground, I could see little clods of dirt and sand come loose and tumble down the slopes. I wonder how far the embankment edge moves in a year.

    I would like to introduce you to my good friend Bud:

    -He hails from St Louis, Missouri (or was it Minnesota?)

    -He was recently acquired through eBay for a song, as he was discarded from a new bike takeoff.

    -He Rolls over most things on a hand-built chariot (of fire) named Darryl, suspended in mid-air by 32 stainless small lightening rods...

    -He fearlessly leads the way on the trail each morning and keeps me grounded...

    -He has yet to meet his estranged brother Lou since the Monster won't let Lou squeeze in between her rear dropouts!

    -He has welcomed and accepted his scrawny 2nd cousin Nate into the family; strictly for propulsion duties.

    -Bud is the Man.

    -Peaceout, VB

    trails? We don't need no stinking trails!

    Had a couple of ECRs out south of Tonuco this weekend. Lots of fatbike fun out there.

    yup,been meaning to put the 26x4.8s back on the 'truck and go get sandy but the 29er+ version is just such a trail slayer...plus with the new oval chainring it climbs almost as well as an ecr!

    Nothing climbs like an ECR. Look at that photo up there, going straight up.

    A morning ride...

    Hi everyone a day off work clear skies and still warm weather, a perfect day for a ride. Headed south down the coast to take in a few hills, got more than I bargained for. This is the place I headed to.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_1597.jpg

    The road down to the beach had a lot more pothole patches than I remembered. Still the view at the bottom was worth it.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_1569.jpg

    Use to surf here a lot plenty still do.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_1582.jpg

    Before the climb out I stopped in the shade to re fuel.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_1595.jpg

    The climb out of there had the granny gear working overtime. Still gave me an excuse to stop at the top and enjoy the view before the ride home.

    thats actually the main trail area for this area so it depends on the day as to whether you run into anyone...that particular day i ran into lots of people and i was going in the opposite direction so i spent a bunch of time pulled off to the side waiting for people to go by...

    Did another Over the Blades trip. One short overnight stop then a return trip back across the range. Plenty of flowers, rocks, sand, and even a little rain.

    2 XXL ECRs where they should be--single, double, and no track.

    its a new mexico thing...red and green chile...

    lol,not really,i was going for a total OCD green build on this bike but it was gonna be even more expensive once i factored in the industry9 wheelset and chris king bottom bracket,and ultimately what i wanted was a solid,long lasting build...plus i got a lot of the red stuff fairly cheap and after getting some hope pro4evo hubs for the ice cream truck im really liking them and they were on sale so i got both hubs for 300 bucks....just the i9 rear hub would have been 400...and the rabbit hole rims have been pretty much bombproof,and what i really need is a bike that gets me home every time...

    Damn hamsterspam, you have some of the nicer Surly bling builds I've seen. This Krampus is top notch, and I love the black & blue Karate Monkey especially. Very nicely done on all of them.

    thank you! i know some of my color choices cause mild seizures especially combined with the angry hornet hubs but i like em,and last time i checked riding bikes was supposed to be fun and if i wanted boring bikes i could have just bought a trek or something...not that trek makes bad bikes by any means...its half the fun of owning surly bikes,you get to chose your own vision of what each platform can bring...and stuff as big a tire as possible in!!

    The rear rack is saved from my little girl's ex-bike. It is so tiny that there is no drawbacks when rolling down steep slopes.

    Send those photos to Maxxis. Maybe they will quit with the huge yellow letters.

    Although I've been cornering aggressively on the ECR (exits corners rapidly) and nearly rubbed the yellow off.

    Still not sure how you keep it so clean. I know how much you ride.

    those tires are still fairly new,barely a few hundred miles on them...the key to keeping bikes clean is huge gobs of spare time...really im just trying to keep the drivetrain clean on all the bikes,but it only takes a minute to wipe the frame down too so why not...

    Even better in person. Doesn't have a christmas vibe at all. I can still hear all those evos and see the colors when I close my eyes.

    This is why I love the KM —I had wheels and cockpit parts. Jimmy bought a frame and a drivetrain. Three hours later, we have a completely versatile, endlessly grin-inducing hardtail.

    Since this is a thread completely dedicated to Surly builds, I am totally aware that this is kind of 'just a black bike.'

    To Jimmy, it's a gateway drug, a golden ticket, a new crush, a membership card. He loves the bike.

    Check out the full build notes and inaugurate ride here:

    I am having 29+ wheels built for my Pugsley, but the front will be done first... I am totally thinking of trying it out, so I googled it, and only found one other forum post on it. Then, wham! You've done it!

    How do you like the ride?

    Testing the waters as an alt-bar'd SS with 34:12 & no shifters on what has morphed to become my lunchtime GTFOOH ride. Need to make up my mind and order a chainring & cog. May back it down a notch and go 42:16. FWIW, the Avid flat bar road levers are waaaay better than brifters with canti's.
