    It's hard to beat the ICT, in my opinion. It's my most favorite bike I've ever had, regardless of the weather. I'm still itching to build a 1x1, and will one day. But for now, the ICT rules.

    It's an old iPhone 5 stem mount from LLBean that I use rubber bands to mount my 6 plus not sure of the exact brand, but it works pretty well...

    cool. I have not been able to find one yet that just doesn't rattle off the bike. Not that I really use my phone while I ride, but might start to when I get more into long trips

    It was an overpriced Topeak. $40ish. But I field tested it during RAGBRAI and it passed. Not sure how it would stand up off road...MTB style

    Thanks. To be fair, we don't get that many days when the colour of the sky matches the bike so well over here. A darn sight more than Ireland though

    It was close as I rolled thru the State Game Lands a few days ago, this young black rat snake almost felt the full force of those Nates.

    Big Ride on the Big Dummy.

    So I got out for a really nice ride on my Big Dummy in the Mt Hood NF. A nice mix of paved and dirt roads, all of which were empty. The sun was out and it was quite hot.

    I'm heading out for 5 days of bike camping there at the end of the month. First I was thinking I'd ride my LHT which is fantastic but always feels underbiked on dirt descents. Then I thought about the Krampus but I don't want to go minimalist. I settled on my BD once I realized I could easily get it in and out of my care if I just took off wheels, post, pedals and bags. I can also bring my big tent and a few more comfort items. I'm not looking on doing big mileage, just ramble around, camp and read.

    Today was a bit of a test run. I put ETs on the other day and they're pretty awesome. Great in the dirt. I did hit some gravel sections and felt that the pressure was a little too high, making for sketchy handling.

    My gear is pretty much sorted out. Just need to pick-up new shoes, will likely go with some Five Ten Aescents or Contacts. Also considering getting the new Dummy bags.

    When I first got my BD in 2012 I had intended to use it for camping, being inspired by Devo, Vik and others. Glad I'm finally getting around to it.

    Here's my BD at High Rock today.

    converted the krampus to singlespeed...
    once i find the right gear i will get a nice cog from absolute bikes and spacer kit...red cog and green spacer kit im thinking...maybe 2,one in lime green and one in a darker green for maximum blinginess...

    after a quick test ride on the krampus it seems like the 32/20 combo is going to work pretty well for around here....so that solves my singlespeed mountain biking needs...no more getting beaten up by the karate monkey...so now what to do with the trusty and much loved km?
    been digging getting back to some road riding on the straggler,like the way its set up but wanted a similar any road style singlespeed that would handle some slightly friskier conditions than the straggler...i built that to be a road climber,and its great at that,but we have plenty of nice riding thats basically flat too,lots of levee roads and ditch banks...

    so....swapped out the stem,put on the surly open bars flipped upside down,an old 44 tooth chainring that fit the crank,a white industries dos enos 20/22 on the back,some ergon grips,and some faux leather bar wrap,and some bontrager 1.9 inch tires...

    That's a very nice KM build, sir. Nicely done. I'm curious how it feels after a longer ride with the open bars set low like that. I assume it's pretty close to where drops would be normally?

    i will let you know in a few hours,but the initial ride it felt more like jones loop bars...frankly im more concerned about the gearing! 44 teeth seems like a lot of chainring to be pushing around,but once again the initial ride it felt pretty good...and i was able to do this build just from the spare parts bins,i went to the shop to see if i could get a set of cowchippers but getting surly or salsa small parts right now is impossible...
    anyway,hoping this set up works out,i really love my karate monkey,but i just cant take the beating from a rigid 29er,and i kinda want to keep my karate monkey as a rigid singlespeed,the way i bought it initially....and you know,pick up another km frame and build up a hardtail! n+1 baby!

    alright,back from the shakedown cruise,think i gave it a pretty fair run at the sort of conditions it will likely be used for,a little dirt road,a bit more gravel road,a short steep hill and a couple of longer but still fairly short climbs...24 miles,a bit over 900 feet of climbing,so for me within the spectrum of an easy day,but still a ling enough ride that any back or hand/wrist issues would have come up,and i have a crappy shoulder so any issues with the position of the handlebars would have come up....felt really good,didnt take long for me to forget what bike i was on and just cruise along.on the flats it was easy to keep it right about 18mph at a reasonable cadence,i had no trouble climbing it, bar position felt good for that,so aside from adjusting the angle of the ergons and tinkering with the seat position a bit it felt great,rolled really smoothly and quickly on the road with the tires at 45 psi set up tubeless on blunt35's,still had plenty of traction and control,and enough cushion along with the ergons for it to be comfortable....plenty of control too,this build should be able to handle some light,not too climby trail duty just fine,on the road its really nice and sharp handling without being too twitchy...basically its still very much a karate monkey...

    after another day of riding the kafe monkey around on a beer run im thinking i may swap the gearing back to a 32 tooth up front and putting the white industries dos enos 17/19 back on,or perhaps a 34 tooth...right now its sort of natural cadence point with a 44/22 combo is about 16.8mph which is just a touch faster then it was running 32/17 on the road,plus i have much nicer chainrings in 32 teeth,the 44 tooth is pretty thin,and i think the 32 17/19 combo would be fast enough on the road to not be annoying,but be far more trail ready for the few smooth trails in the area....

    ^^^ wow...i wish I had enough patience to notice things like this about the way I ride and my bike handles. I just "get on and plow through". Am I missing something or doing it wrong? I guess we all enjoy our bikes in different ways. It is fun and very informative to read these kinds of threads though...I feel like I learn a lot about some of the aspects of biking that others take for granted...even if I may never use the knowledge in application my self...or maybe I use it indirectly...

    well...i put in 6200+ miles last year and did 280,000 feet of climbing,i dont own a car and ride almost every single day,so at some point the little things really matter...and with 5 bikes i can set them up for specific types of riding and then hone them relentlessly until the bike just disappears beneath me....and then switch it all around again a few months later! its half the fun of owning a surly i think...bolt on some different parts,change tires and its a different bike altogether...

    hamsterspam, how are you liking the bontrager 1.9" tires? My new ogre build will be using the alex adventurer rims that stock on my cross check and I think those tires would fit nicely.

    they roll pretty nicely pumped up to 45 psi or so on the road,plenty of traction on the gravel and dirt/sand roads i have been down,i dunno if they are up to serious trail use around here due to the generally rocky nature of the local trails but thats not what i did this build for...
    at any rate,its a good tread pattern for around here,and i got them really cheap,have them set up tubeless although they arent tubeless ready...they should work fine with the alex rims,i have the set that came with the ogre...

    all that said,i will likely replace them with wtb nano 2.1s at some point,or maybe something like a kenda small block8...gotta see how much use the new setup gets...
    for me i usually need about 200 miles to get everything tweaked just right,if it sticks that long its usually good to go,not causing me any issues,everything working harmoniously...

    yeah,its getting tough deciding what type of ride to go on these days...road or trail? geared or singlespeed? what an awful problem to have....

    I think this is definitely a hallmark of Surly, and definitely a nice part of becoming truly intimate with your machine. I ride about as much as you do, and I love wrenching.

    My Dinglespeed Pugsley, as a fatbike...



    And as a 29+ bike...



    One frame, many more than one uses. It's a cruiser, an endurance bike, a touring bike, a mountain bike, a snow/sand bike... It does whatever I need it to and I'm free to get lost in the options with the myriad compatible components. Standard head tubes, BB shells, hub sizes, etc. Beautiful!



    It's also nice to get completely familiar with a machine. I know my bike like the back of my hand... it's a trusted friend. I can tell you the last time each bearing, bolt, and interface was greased and I know exactly what it's capable of.

    i went with the ict as the swiss army bike option,2...and maybe 3 wheelsets,rigid fork or squish...no singlespeed option but seeing that i have 2 other bikes set up singlespeed im not seeing the lack...the krampus makes an awesome singlespeed,the oval chainring really helps with traction control which is pretty crucial around here...i suppose thats true of all mountain biking...

    yeah,a bunch of surlys to chose from isnt a bad thing,been getting back into the road miles so the straggler has been lots of fun,and now the karate monkey for mixed surface rides...cool to just be able to swap parts and get psyched about some other micro variation of going and riding your bike....

    and,number 1002 in my series of surly frame and giant parts bin re-cajiggering and painfully tedious micro-adjustment fine tuning of the resulting build....

    it was somewhere beyond time for me to service the bottom bracket,indeed it was in somewhat shocking condition when i got it apart...required a trip to the bike shop as my early attempts at wrenching had stripped the self extractor bolts 10mm portion so i got that taken off and they let me use a stand to swap in the new/old race face bottom bracket that spent some time on the ogre and the zee crank that came with the krampus...and now the original chainring that came with the km...
    yet another of the awesome things about a fleet of surly bikes is everything on the bikes can be swapped back and forth except the ict for wheels and cranks of course,but i could certainly have an ogre with an ict fork and 5 inch tire up front,or slap the bluto and 29+ wheel onto the krampus...
    but i was blathering about the karate monkey,which always rides like a karate monkey no matter what i have done to it,which is a good thing,its a darn fun bike to ride...

    anyway,now 33/17 for gearing,looking for that point between frustratingly spinny and feeling like im digging myself out of a giant hole whenever i need to spin the gear up,and i have the 19 tooth option with the dos enos...i highly recommend white industries enos and dos enos,even my well used 20/22 still looks box new...
    and ordered some kenda small block8 tubeless ready tires,the bonts keep going flat on me,didnt like the whole tubeless thing...which it too bad cause they really had a sexy road hum when i was cruising along...

    Took off the Bluto and installed the stock fork. It's summer, needed to carry all of the water. Probably won't put the Bluto back on.
