    My girlfriend has the black Ogre. She jazzed it up with a red framebag, yellow panniers, turquoise grips, gold cable housing, and blue pedals.

    I got lucky. My Pugsley came in sparkly dark purple. Best paint job ever.

    Love my Krampus green. Might have considered the ECR had it not been for that blah color. MRE Green? I was in the military, and once was enough, thanks. The only green I want sparkles.

    I considered the tanish grey, but opted for the "safe" black. I love black.

    picked up a set of kenda small block8's 1.9s for 48% off...actual tubeless ready tires this time,virtually the same tread pattern as the bont's but hopefully without the seeping sidewalls...as a plus they can be run at a higher pressure as well,as i mean this to be a mainly road build,and one thats easy-ish to pedal around without being too spin-y it should help...

    I use a set of those for gravel races. Great tire for that, though they do seem to wear pretty fast.

    Kind hard to go "full suspension" on a Wednesday let alone a Surly.

    I love that quote even though it is almost 10 years old. I feel that every Surly should stay the way they come - rigid. So just drop the "Full" and it still applies.

    Camping with the BD.

    I spent 5 days rolling around the Mt Hood NF on the BD. It was a blast. I bought my BD in 2012 and had always intended on using it for relaxed bike camping trips where I could bring a big tent. Well, for this trip, I brought a big tent although it wasn't necessarily a leisurely ramble. Everyday included significant climbing. The first 3 days were 60+ mile days on quiet paved and unpaved roads, including a section of the Barlow Trail.

    The bike handled great. The load looks big but it wasn't that big. I did bring a 3/4 person tent and a foam sleeping pad so those took up a fair amount of room.

    The ET tires were awesome. No flats and they worked well enough in the dirt. I also purchased the new Dummy Bags before the trip and they were fantastic.

    I hope to get out that way once more this summer for at least a night. I'll definitely be out in the forest this year for day trips.

    I'm having trouble loading my pictures. They all want to load sideways. Here's a link to a photo album for the trip:

    i dunno,the ICT with the bluto is mighty sweet...but i will agree with your statement with one caveat,a singlespeed surly should remain rigid...

    Hi
    I think perhaps you are a pugsley guru so I would like to ask you something about:

    I have a krampug with 100 mm fork and bb7 brakes , I found and bought 2 turnagain fr80 and 2 Larry at a good price. (No hubs and no spokes).
    The fork fit the 80 mm rim with Larry tire, but saw that every time I'll mount and unmount the wheel, I'll unmount the brake caliper, not bad because it takes about 20 seconds; the real question is do you know if the spoke of the rim simmetric laced will touch the caliper? If so do you think lacing the wheel as asimmetric will fix the problem?

    I hope you understand because my English is not good.
    Thanks

    Cosimo

    Nice! Weird that it didn't show on my Flickr Feed though. Will have to fix that.
    [EDIT] Ok, you switched the account name to your given name, so it dropped from my "Follow" list??

    I got no action on my new build other than what I last posted of the cable guides Ed Litton put on for me.


    All my money's gone to house repairs of late, but Raven's new partner in crime did get a pre-build and all I gotta do is pick up a couple more things before deciding on what color (not white) it's going to be. The sealed (clear coat, it'll be with rust inhibitor and UV protectant) bead-blasted clear's a nice option I might take.

    I see nothing wrong here, just that you have to deflate and inflate anytime the wheel needs to come out, but I'm biased, a little nutty, and over 40.

    East side of Hood on the Krampus.

    Had a great time rolling around the trails on the east side of Mt Hood on my Krampus today. It was actually my first time trail riding like this on platform pedals. I kind of like it.

    I really need to convert to tubeless. My neighbor recently did it with his Krampus and really likes it. Also might consider going back to a straight flat bar. The Jones Bar is nice but for this kind of riding I just think I prefer a flat bar.

    I added some white fyxation slim pedals to the ICT and replaced the stock grips with some bontragers as the stock pair were super uncomfortable after an hour or so. Also added some color with a lime green bontrager seat bag for my keys, money clip, etc.

    SS CC love.

    I think this is a pretty perfect set-up for mixed terrain rambling as long as the hills aren't too steep. Gearing is 40x19 if I remember correctly. I get a little spun out on the flats but it's nice on rolling terrain or climbs that aren't too steep. I think about going back to gears but love the simplicity of this set-up.

    Also, the Knards are inexpensive but work well for rides like this. I wouldn't hesitate to pick-up another pair.

    With these latest additions, I think the ICT is ready for the 5 day "tour" at the end of the month. After a quick ~8 mile ride this morning, it feels pretty nice. Smooth rolling for sure. The one thing I noticed right away was the self-steering from the black floyds. When compared with the nates I've been running, it's a very, very different feel.
