    That was quick, but I'm feeling the same way, about my same size/year Ogre. I much prefer the stiffer Troll.

    Do you guys cover up all the holes on the fork when not using them?

    Yes. With a touch of grease on the threads.

    Does anyone know of a step by step manual for mounting bb7 brakes on Ogre. Not much information came with the bike, and I am kind of new to this.

    Anyone have a 24" frame collecting dust? I'm starting to conclude my 22" is a bit small for me...

    I am building an ogre. First round will just get a wheel set I already have but I am thinking about Duallies and Ardents. Or a Knard up front. Be great to get a review of the combination on the Ogre. I will likely go with an IGH depending on how much cash I have sitting around.

    Been considering a XL new 2014 ogre for months. Had the fargo for years, and have just never been 100% sold on it. Switched my city bike to some soma bars, and am now sold on the beautify of flat/backswept bars. There are some really beautiful builds in the thread

    Didn't have the patience to wait, so I just went on. It seems I have got it right, but the front disc touch the pads (I guess) when I stand up, and the bike move more from side to side. So I get the noise from the disc :-).

    I will have a look at the link you gave me ritraf, maybe I will get it corrected.
    Thanks ritraf.

    Look very closely at the caliper on both sides around the disk, especially from the bottom of the caliper.
    The disk touching the caliper is often the culprit and usually an easy fix by backing off the pads, loosening the caliper and centralizing it so equidistant on both sides of the disk and re-tightening the caliper and re-adjusting the pads as explained in the link.
    Let us know how you get on.

    Just joined the dark side and have purchased an ECR. I am going to let the Ogre go... Such a hard decision. I don't know why I wanted that knard on the back so bad, but yeah, now I have it so green 18" Ogre for sale .

    Sold it quicker than I thought!

    It seems like there's been a couple of people who aren't completely happy with their Ogres and have either sold their Ogres or are contemplating selling their Ogres. I just recently bought an Ogre and can't be happier.

    My Ogre replaced a Cross Check for commuting and will also be used as a backup mountain bike. I may get to work a bit slower nowadays, but man I feel like I can roll over anything now. That sucker is a tank, in a good way. I also love how I feel like I am sitting "in" the bike and not on top of it. I never liked how I felt on the CC.

    As far as replacing the Ogre with an ECR, I can kinda understand why, but I when I do get an ECR (a year, maybe two), my Ogre will still carry me to work while the ECR would carry me up the arroyos and into the mountains.

    Hi everyone, I am currently building an Ogre Touring build.

    I have troube finding the right adapter for the front disc Postmount 180 "Shimano SLX". The Ogre only has two holes without winding so I need an adapter with winding.

    kind regards mogh

    Sorry, just saw this. Built a set of Dually's in Feb and have enjoyed them. I put Weirwolfs on, easy tubeless as that tire/rim combo is tight. I get a sense that probably any quality tire would fit well for tubeless by the way the inner rim is angled. The rims have been bomber after the initial re-tweak. Have fun!

    Thanks ritraf. It all worked out. Had my first trip with fully loaded bike. And the brakes worked super.

    Good one.
    Getting that caliper adjustment can take a few goes to get right.
    My Ogre is a PITA in this regard.
    Glad your sorted

    Bought this lightly used Ogre frame to replace my Monocog frame, and added the J-Bar, and though it feels slightly different than Monocog, it felt just right from the first ride. :)

    Should give the J-Bar a new wrap though, and maybe get a black saddle.

    J-bars are out of production, right? I can't seem to find any for sale :(

    Edit: Titec ones, that is - not the $380 Jeff Jones one

    The Titec H-bars were more prevelant. You can still find them to Cl and E-bay from time to time. I have bought 3 pair that way. And the Jones' are only $120 for the alloy ones, not bad considering.

    Yeah they are out of production now.
    I grabbed mine for $25 off Ebay.
    I think the $380 JJ ones are the Titanium versions.

    Asphault dude -- can I recommend a top down wrap with your bar tape to get rid of that ugly duct tape?
  • 06-14-2014

    Yeah, still need to figure out the whole handlebar wrap thingy.

    I'm lazy. Most of the time I'm too lazy to even shift gears, that's why I like SS :aureola:

    By the way: only now I put gears on it I really noticed what a pig the Ogre is. It's hardly any faster with gears than with 36/19 SS setup. Will probably go back to SS pretty soon.

    Hi, I bought my Ogre 3 weeks ago, it's a very good bike, I lik it. I want to put on it a rear pack, I seearched and tubus cargo looks good. Do you know if it is O.K with original tyres of the bike (WTB Exiwolf 29" in 2,3).

    In France, this rear pack is only under command, so I can't try it before buy it.

    Do you have any issues with toe overlap on the small frame? Much appreciated.

    The Ogre got some upgrades. New high volume pump (which will be spending the winter on the fatbike) and crank.
