I built it for my wife but....
Thanks! I absolutely love ridding and traveling with it. The tires are Schwalbe Marathon Mondials 26 x 2.15. They're really good on the trail and roll amazing on asphalt. I run the 700 x 40c Mondials on my Cross Check...best tires I have ever owned. I run the set back Thomson when I ride/travel with it (what you see in the pic) and my wife just uses the straight Thomson seatpost. I was really impressed how it handled (normally ride 29er's on trails) on single track with the exception of a few 10 inch drops that I forgot to negotiate (going to fast). Right after I took these pics I chased down a wild bobtail cat...but the cat had afterburners are something and just left me...but I was flying on the Deluxe.

My new Ogre. I commute 100 miles per week. Once I slap some bags and/or racks on this thing, it's also going to be my touring/adventure bike. I've only had my Desalvo single speed for several years now, and commuting to work on it sucks. This is going to be a welcome change. Love the Rohloff -- once you figure out how to put it on.:)

Kicking and screaming....
but they eventually just fall asleep. I haul the cranky cargo in my double Burley trailer, and my wife hauls all of our other stuff in the single Burley we bought before my son was born and we just had my daughter.
