    H-spam is pretty tall but always polite enough to take his crown off before entering buildings. No issues.

    Sorry, I meant crown/downtube clearance (as the bars are rotated). I think your talking about tire/arch clearance.

    Thanks

    Probably a 1 x 1,
    At least from that old school geometry. Great deal, regardless. No idea about the year, doesn't matter much. Since it came with disc brakes, probably not too old.

    Today's Cross Check Gravel Ride

    Explored some local gravel roads I had not yet visited.

    Stopped by an old brick building housing the local Historical Society. I love the look of old brick.

    Some logging going on along the way.

    Maybe I should have brought my Pugsley instead. Show him what a real fat tire looks like.

    CC at High Rock.

    High Rock is one of my favorite places to ride to in the Mt Hood NF. There's a lot of options for getting there and all include climbing. Today I rode my SS up there. I started at Timothy Lake riding the singletrack trail around the lake and then on to a dirt road followed by paved FS road that gradually climbed. The last mile was pretty steep in two spots and I walked a bit. I love this bike. It'll be 10yrs old in Oct. Here's to another 10 yrs. The gearing is 40/18. I'll be 50 on Friday.

    Oh yeah. That bent support for the rack... It's what happens when you get a tree branch caught in your spokes. No damage to the spokes. I've straightened the bent support back out again. Beausage.

    Nice! That has to be in New England somewhere. Looks like any of the places I ride here in Maine.

    Yes, it is.

    New England dry laid field stone construction, like that farmhouse's foundation, is pretty recognizable. The whole area I was riding that day has a dense network of stone walls dating back to 1775-1825. Plenty of old graveyards in the area with birth dates on the few legible headstones in the 1750s and 1760s.

    New England lacks the dramatic big-sky vistas of rugged mountains that we get to admire when our Western friends post their pictures. But, there is no lack of interesting things to see and find hidden in the closed-in wooded landscapes of the northeast.

    nothing i love more than randomly switching parts around on the surly fleet...
    a little drop bar ogre action...
    half 29er,half 29+....new trp hydraulic brakes...new to me anyway..some junebug bars 32 18/20 drivetrain...

    if the gearing proves to be too much for trailer pulling i will convert the straggler to ss and slap the 1x10 back on the ogre...

    the soma junebug bars are really sweet,i did a little tweaking of the bar position and i need to fiddle with the brakes a bit,and then see if i can haul the trailer with this setup but overall it was comfortable and plenty of control,i think it feels more solid in the corners than the jones loop bars...no problems track standing the bike,the fatbnimble up front makes it pretty plush,i think i want to try something like the wtb....crap,i cant remember the model but something with a small close set knob pattern but by coincidence the local QBP rep was at the shop with a new karate monkey so i will probably just get a set of the 2.5 ET's when they come out...
    cant believe i never tried the ogre singlespeed...its basically the family car and i dont need it to go very fast...throw the frame bag on,put the anything cages on,slap a rack on the back and a couple panniers and it would be a heck of a touring rig

    anyone know what this is?

    sorry for hijack friends, but i was recently looking for surly frames in the great hope that i could post a build here one day and i stumbled across this?

    http://www.hibike.com/surly-ogre-27-...1dd0ad06b7bc69

    no pictures but reputable site, but then no word from surly hq about this bike? is it the new karate monkey and they stuffed it? Then why is it not in that weird yellow/orange colour? its posted as a different model to the 2016 ogre.... any thoughts, sorry bout thread redirect.

    Those look like QBP part numbers, and they don't match the KM framesets listed on their site.

    Seems like if they were redoing everything else the Ogre would naturally get the same touches (Gnot, 27.5+ clearance, non-corrected fork).

    How is the reach? Did you swap stems at all moving from the Jones bars to those drops?

    yes on the stem swap,went from a 110 to a 70 and i need to scrootch the seat forward an rch or 2...the trp hylex brake levers have a pretty generous hood and the angle the junebug bars put them at is just perfect...

    The Mighty Pugsley

    From Today's Ride

    Pugsley on the Rocks:

    HAB. My legs are all scratched up and my shorts got shredded. Did about a mile through this stuff:

    On top of a dam:

    This poor guy must have fallen off the dam. He's about 16 inches across. Don't mess with snapping turtles, not live ones anyway. Cycle of life:

    My 2009 Cross Check as of a couple days ago:

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-2016-09-10-16.38.28.jpg

    Very pleased with it, it rides wonderfully and I love the versatility. In fact, I sold a couple bikes that it made redundant. It's done duty as a full on touring bike, cross/gravel grinder, general road and commuter use, and even has recently been getting a lot of use on some straight up mountain bike trails that no longer feel like a challenge on the full squish. They sure are on a cross bike, though.

    Current build is feeling great. Ritchey WCS Carbon fork, American Classic Hurricane wheelset (rear is some random in the pic while I wait for a new freehub body to come in), Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes, Brooks B17 saddle, 3x10 Deore/XT mountain drivetrain (trickle down from converting my MTB to 1x11) and Time Attac Carbon pedals. I keep the stock fork around with a Jandd rack on it, and along with a rear rack and panniers it is a very quick swap over to touring mode.

    I think the Brooks is the only thing I paid retail on, everything else including the initial purchase of the bike has been some crazy bike swap or CL deal, trickle down from another bike or scored from a friends parts bin in exchange for some favor. I just love scoring deals....plus it's the only way I can afford any of this stuff.

    The plan to finish out the dream build is a Thomson Stem and Seatpost, Microshift Bar End shifters (stock ones only get me 9 of my 10 gears in the back right now), Revelate Tangle frame bag, Salsa Cowbell or Cowchipper bars and TRP RRL Levers.

    I've had a lot of bikes come and go, but I plan on hanging on to this one forever.

    Nice CC mate...

    Hi mate thats a nice setup on your CC.

    How does the fork ride? I considered getting one for my CC with a recent respray and rebuild. Stayed with the stock fork, would be great to get your thoughts on the carbon option.

    I did go carbon with the seat post, a Specialized CG-R post one of the better upgrades on my bike. It combined with a Brooks B17 really smoothed out the rear end, worth a look. Don't have a picture of just the post but you can see it here.

    Have two CG-R posts with another B17 for my Troll, its off the bike at the moment as I cannot get the setback I want with the Jones bars.

    I have a Thomson post and a Brooks Cambium setup on it. Thomson post is great, easy to setup and a strong clamp that does not slip.

    The Cambium is great once you get it right, otherwise it feels rock hard, fiddle around with the placement and it a great all weather ride.

    Good riding.

    Thanks man. I really think the carbon fork was a great upgrade. I threw it on at the same time I moved the wheelset over from my cross race bike prior to selling it and between the two the bike feels a whole lot livelier. Feels as though it just wants to go full tilt all the time and the ride quality is top notch. I scored it in a trade, but after riding it I can say that even paying full price for one wouldn't be a mistake. Here's a link to the exact one I have.

    Thanks for the insight on the seatposts, I had been considering a Thudbuster, but I wasn't totally sold on it, and honestly I think they are pretty ugly. The CG-R looks like a really nice middle ground. I thought I was pretty set on a Thomson, but this is a contender now if I can find a sweet deal on one somewhere.
