    I don't. I just use maps. I had ridden out there before. I rode out of Sunset Falls Campground on FS Rd 42 to where it intersects with 4220 and then back. You can actually do a loop--42-4220--41. Just futz around on Google Maps.

    Count me in...

    Picked it up a week ago. I've added a shorter stem (75mm), different grips, seat post and saddle. Rides really nice.

    Decided to convert my 3x9 2014 medium Ogre to a 2x10 GX drop bar. Bars are Cowchippers. Always felt slightly cramped on the medium frame. Switched to a 60mm stem with drops. I am really happy with the setup

    HI Terry, thats super nice, I really like the drop bar setup on an Ogre. What gearing are you running.

    OZ.

    Hey Oz...38/24 with 11/40 cassette. That gives some ridiculous low gear of like 17.5 gear inches. The cassette was one I already had in the parts bin. I'll prob swap it out at some point

    I am wondering what people’s opinions are on the mokolo bar vs the jones bar.

    Howdy, new to the forum, and am definitely not a bike expert, so please forgive my lack of knowledge! I have a road bike (Felt Z 85), and am looking to buy an all purpose bike, to be used mainly as a commuter, go to the store, cruise around town, etc. bike, but also would like to venture into some bikepacking and touring, maybe do a bit off road.

    I have visited several LBS and test road numerous bikes. Prior to doing this the Ogre wasn't even on my radar. But after riding numerous makes and models I kept coming back to the Ogre. It just feels right for me and I'm pretty locked in on buying one. My problem is that most shops do not have it in stock, and it's not available until late November at the earliest (so I'm told). I found one shop that has a 2016 available in my size, and I much prefer the Jones H bar to the new Surly bar (based only on the look), but I think that's a pretty minor issues. I have read extensively about the bike, and the recent changes. I have no desire to add suspension. But wondering if those of you in the know can elaborate on their personal feelings about the differences between the 2016 and the updated model. Is it worth it for me to wait and find a new model? Pros and cons of each model? Any input is greatly appreciated. Again, I'm not a technical expert and a lot of what I read in this thread flies right over my head!

    i would say go for it,the new model doesnt really offer anything too radical in the way of upgrades aside from maybe the extraterrestrail tires but they fit the older models just fine...i have like 10000 miles on my ogre at this point,its perfect as a town bike and is also well proven out on the road and built like a tank...aside from a few scuffs mine still looks like a new bike...it does everything pretty darn well...
    the only bad point,the ride is a bit harsh with just the bare bike,out some weight on it and it gets far more comfy...

    I've ridden with the Jones H bar and my (2017) Ogre came with the Mokolo. The latter gives a slightly different hand position due to the horns. The horns allow pretending to have gun and rocket switches for bad drivers, or that you're flying like Superman, just by a slight shift of the palms. Outside of those horns, I don't find much difference between them.

    New model is boost spacing, 168+ q factor cranks only. My old 158 q m9000 XTR cranks didn't fit. It is stiffer and clears plus tires if you want to run them later. You can use the 142 thru axle rear but, there are no monkey nuts made for the new frame yet. You will have to use their chain tensioners if you run a rear rotor over 160 or need the spacing for drivetrain reasons. I bent my 2016 model Ogre and the new ogre replacement under warranty has been awesome. stiff, rides better, slightly slacker but they made up for it in other ways so it feels very similar other than the handling change. One thing if you run the 142, you'll need surly's custom thru axle because it doesn't take DT or maxle. If you run 135, you'll be using their adapters which for me added some flex and caused an issue with securing my rear wheel with Pitlock skewers. Pitlock doesn't make a 142 option and it wouldn't work anyways because there's no threads on the other side. But my bike is too expensive to leave outside now anyways so I'll just carry an extra lock if I needed to do that.
