    desert? are you sure? looks darn green to me. Lots of grass too. How many snakes did you bunny hop?

    How was the descent? Decent?

    no snakes today,plenty of hikers and dogs out however...
    the descent was pretty white knuckle in spots,it was murder on the hands trying to brake and hang on to the hoods,but thats mainly due to getting talked into pretty much all dirt on the way up...A was fairly brutal,well going downhill on rough,steep trails aint fun for sure,the climbing parts went really well however...


    for sure,it keeps you on your toes,i oval chainringed theheck out of the climbs though!
    it gives the same old trails a different spin,pretty darn fun to ride mixed routes on the straggler...
    now i need to singlespeed that sucka and really notch the suffering up!

    I was looking at the salsa drop bars I have over the weekend and was wondering what they'd be like on my ICT. With a 60 or 70mm stem, they may be a nice fit.

    unless it was mainly on roads of some type i would think a big flare like the woodchippers are going to work best...i live somewhat near to white sands and ive always wanted to take a fat bike out there,i could see slapping the juebugs on for what would essentially be a road tour,maybe even aero bars for something like that...

    I've had a Junebug on my Fargo for the last 9 mos. or so. I really like it. The extra width and flare make a big difference on singletrack.

    its been a real eye opener getting the straggler off the pavement,a lot like getting a fat bike and that first time you go off trail and suddenly the world opens up before you...
    the junebugs are more comfy overall,the hand position seems more powerful as well,im having fun trying them out on the various bikes.plus with my bike ocd all the permutations of stem length/rise and hood position , etc gives me something to do between rides since i seem to be determined to never ride the same bike twice!

    Not that I know of. This one's a lost cause and doesn't see much use, but I've put in water bars and cut back the trees and brush on other trails. Someone has been removing exposed roots and rocks which is kind of annoying...they're part of the joint's character.

    Bucket list ride...

    Hi everyone, had the idea for this ride for a while now. Just needed a free day and sunny skies. Well that was today. Had a rough idea of how far it was, turned out a little more than planned at 128 kms/ 80 odd miles.

    First from my place heading south to Norah Head light house.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_2757.jpg

    As I said a blue sky day...

    On the way back north through a state park.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_2762.jpg

    The lighthouse on the right hand side.

    Then north to Nobby's Light house at the entrance to Newcastle Harbour.

    Post pics of your Surly!!!-img_2765.jpg

    One of my longer day rides, should have added an extra 2km's to make a neat 130.

    Maybe next time.

    I take it the BD is new? Looks like a fat front. 1x drivetrain? I've had mine for a few years. The newer dummy bags are pretty awesome. I'm also a fan of the ET tires. I took mine on a 5 day camping trip this past summer and it was pretty cool. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again for a multi day camping trip.

    Hi mate
    Yeah, it's a 2008 but 'new' addition to my fleet. came with the Fat front, it's a Pugsley fork and wheel and the rear is a 65mm rim with a Alfine hub running a hookworm.
    Will keep it fat for the winter then put the original fork back on and run my 2.0 marathons for touring with my little man on the back.
    Its about a month now and we are still sorting some stuff for it. yesterday my flightdeck, U tubes and magic carpet arrived, so that will see my boy a bit more comfortable
    I have it with the P racks as I have a couple of sets of Ortlieb panniers off of my LHT.
