    Yeah, but this one has gears.... (still missing a front derr)

    And hopefully in the near future some green bottlecages, green brooks saddle and a green CK headset.

    I can't compare it to anything else, but so far it's pretty awesome. Only just picked the bike up, so the high speed backyard test laps and stair climbing/descending are all the experience I have. Ask again in a few weeks after I get some time on varied surfaces.

    Whoa! Your bike looks great. What size and brand of tires are you running there? Any chance of getting a side shot of the bike. Looks great, like a classic mtn bike but with super load carrying abilities.

    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.

    Thanks! It is a fleegle bar, and I couldn't be happier with it. I originally bought it (20 bucks from the USA store) just as a temporary bar until I could put a nitto promenade bar I had at home...but that never happened because the fleegle was so comfortable. Not to mention, I love taking a corner on switch backs with it. The length is perfect for control.

    I swear, I hate this thread! Every time I look at it, I want to buy another bike. I love my troll, but man all of the bikes on here are pretty amazing! Good stuff everyone.

    Surly Ogre Rohloff Commuter/Apocalypse Bike

    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.

    ^ Yeah, I love riding with him- even though we don't go super far, being that he's 3 and a half, haha. But it's tons of fun. He keeps telling me he wants to add brakes that he "works with his hands"

    The iBert phase was very fun, I was sad when he outgrew it. The first time he rode on it, he was absolutely amazed. These were from about a year ago, But once he went from the balance bike to the pedal bike, he prefers pedalling over being a passenger now:

    You can go farther when they get a bit older:



    My six year old son and I have been using this configuration for the last year or so. We've done up to about 18 miles to an overnight campsite. He loves it. Now what to do when the twins are old enough to want to go next summer...

    Being of somewhat smaller stature, big bikes can sometimes look ungainly to me. This is not one of those bikes, the short steer tube stack height, the right amount of seat post, fat tires, and that RF crankset all work together really well.

    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.
