    me too...aside from there not being any unit frames till past april im just gonna go full insanity and get a set of 27.5 hugos built up on I9 hubs with a set of hodags 27.5x3.8 tires for a third ICT wheelset choice...get a set of paul klampers and some love levers,and maybe some better long pull road levers,maybe the gevenalle brifters since i think they come in 11 speed now,a set of woodchippers,a surly 8 pack rack and a basket,and a bar end shifter for my alfine8...with all that and the 5 frames and handlebars and extra wheelsets and all the frame bags and whatnot i can micro-obsess over the perfect setup and maybe actually get out and do that whole bikepacking thing since theres a million acres of camp wherever you want right in my back yard....

    the karate monkey leaning against stuff in various spots..
    another one of those pesky mixed surface rides covering pavement,bike paths,ditch banks,gravel,trails,dirt roads,two track,a wee bit-o-the-hike-a-bike,and a dry river bed crossing...
    fortunately i was able stave off existential despair over what i was doing by calling it a fine little bike ride...

    the other direction...went down through the bosque and then across the dam and up B006 for a ways....never really ridden out there so just and exploratory ride to figure out how to get out there and get a feel for what i was looking at on google earth...next time i wont go off track and just stick to the roads out there,the km on anything road-like is really nice,no painful climbing out in that direction so a 36 tooth chainring was nice and zippy out there...

    had to switch the karate monkey back to riser bars...the microshift bar end shifter bit the dust,the trp brake levers refused to stay in place...the drop bar/mountain bike interface just wasnt working for me...
    and of course,when the going gets gnarly its just way easier to control the bike on wide riser bars...
    did add some bar ends inboard of the levers to add another hand position,which turns out to be very comfy and easier on the hands than drops...
    nice little dirt road and cow singletrack ramble today..

    Made a custom head tube badge for my Krampus this weekend which I also posted on the Krampus Builds forum. Cut the shape from 1/8" aluminum, then engraved the design with my Dremel, which has since gone to the big tool shed in the sky thanks to this project. I then color filled it with black paint, mashed and man-handled it until it was curved, then sprayed it with some clear enamel.

    Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic folklore figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. He's one bad dude.

    I would take one of those as well...though I would want it flat, and would put it on my bass guitar strap

    Flat's definitely easier...curving that badge was the toughest part. Unfortunately I'm out of the badge game at least until I buy a new Dremel. Glad you guys like tho

    I'm jealous of your photos, Hamsterspam. Not a lot of riding happening around here these days due to our recent rainfall. It is nice to make a dent in our drought though for sure.

    I brought my legs but was toasted when I got home. Would have fallen asleep but instead did a bunch of chores and took over the kids so my wife could get an afternoon break. Not sure why that was so hard today.

    Yeah...I expect to have a few bad rides when I get back at it after all of the time off. I was able to squeeze in one ride last week on the Fatty which was nice

    i got spoiled riding the karate monkey with a 1x10 on it,im not used to pushing the big bikes around...need to get back on the fattie and lug the big tires around some more but im getting the straggler back this week with a fully integrated drop bar setup so im pretty psyched about that...but yeah,thinking maybe the 19/21 would be a good idea,maybe even 19/22 and try to make ss somewhat pleasant...

    BD with 24 Pack Rack.

    I picked up a BD 24 Pack Rack and mounted it on my BD. I really like it. I like that I can switch it between bikes easier than the the Surly Front Rack although they are very different.

    The 24 PR mounted up easy enough and because of the location of mounts on the BD it mounts up low which is nice. On other bikes like the Troll it seems to mount quite high.

    Handling isn't effected poorly although you notice the rack. I can still ride no hands.

    I'll mount it up on my Krampus at some point, probably after I get some 2.5 ETs.

    Are you planning on doing touring with that set up? Like off road?

    Or is it for work. there is a guy around here who delivers for a vegan bakery with roughly that same set up. He has had the BD for years....with various different forms of panniers and racks...

    No current plans. I toured on it last June and it was great. A mix of pavement and dirt. I may do another multi day trip on the BD this summer. We'll see.

    it's finally cold again after a big thaw. thankfully it will be cold all week and we will soon have snow on the ground again. pretty good riding the last couple days on frozen dirt.

    3 XXL ECRs led the way. SS Pugs was in the mix as well. Several of the normal 29er folks were convinced by the end of the ride that they need a Krampus/ECR/WED.
