    Stripped, Oiled, Waxed

    Well, I've been sick and the rain has finally come, so I stripped the Ogre for a good oiling and waxing.

    Got a question...

    Making me feel like a bad owner what with the loving oil bath you're treating your Ogre to - my baby is certainly due. Need a little help...the only piece of bike packing kit i'm missing is a frame bag (for a 24") and I came across a 22"Pugs/Moonlander revelate on Amazon, easy to find with search(I don't have enough posts to link yet) and I've looked over the dimensions and just can't convince myself to pull the trigger but it doesn't seem that far off. Only reason I'm considering it is b/c I have an Amazon gift card. Someone tell me I'm being silly, one way or the other.

    Would the pugs bag not be too wide (not to mention probably the wrong shape?) as i thought they flared out at the front?

    The only bad thing about linseed oil is that it takes about 3/4 days to dry. Be patient!

    Don't you people have wives? If you don't let it rust, how do you justify buying another one in a few years?
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    I have the opposite problem: my wife's an enabler.

    The Ogre is 150% of the budget I set for a new bike, but apparently the money isn't much and it will make me happy.

    We have the weirdest arguments.

    Buy all your bikes in the same colour and she'll think you only have a few bikes...
    Safe riding,

    Hi Renruthsoj
    If you go to Revelates web site and follow the links to Surly Frame Bags he has a chart with all the bag dimensions.

    Thanks Dick and Orbital - I've looked over the chart, I was really hoping someone would have hands on experience with the different sizes/frames before i pay for shipping on a gamble. Found a thread that helped a little if anyone else is wondering. forums.mtbr.com/bikepacking-bike-expedition/revelate-frame-bag-compatibility-urly-moo-814323.html

    Mud Mode

    I shod the Ogre in some NOS Kenda Klaws and took it out in mud mode for a river ride with my new adventure buddy, Duncan. The tires performed quite well on a variety of different terrain.

    (More pictures of Duncan on my blog for those interested.)

    Happy dog is happy.

    What handlebars have you got on that? The flats aren't great for my commuting.

    Surly Open Bar. Best handlebar on the market, IMO.

    Hi. Noob, here. Thinking about getting my first mountain bike (been riding road for about 8 years) and taking advantage of some of the trails around here. The Ogre is at the top of my list for something I want to build up... proven geometry and versatile (if it turns out I don't like off-road, I can always throw on some Big Apples and a couple racks and have myself an indestructible grocery getter/townie).

    Trying to up my post count so I can start threads and really start annoying everyone with my noob questions.

    Anyway, made it all the way through this thread. Y'alls have some pretty nice rides.

    Oh, hey, first question: Anyone know if there are any differences between '12 and '13 models? I've seen the new frames online and it seems only thing that's changed is color... and I already have a black bike.

    No changes that I know of, and your reasoning sounds good to me! The geo suits non-technical riding so should be good for your immediate needs

    Hello all. Another happy owner of an Ogre here. Had it about 5 months now & really enjoying it. I bought it as a utility bike, but it's become a singlespeed mtb instead.

    I might just have to get another

    I'll post up a photo once the forum lets me.

    You could get a KM as the SS MTB and have both versions

    Can't wait for my frame to arrive, hope to have it by end of week, ride pics by Sunday.

    Nice idea

    I've got the 24" version though & for some reason Surly aren't making the Monkey in that size

    Right then, here's my British based Ogre to add to the mix.



    It's a bit clean here, as it had only just been built. I keep forgetting to take my camera on rides though

    ****... that picture makes me want to singlespeed my Ogre, which would not be very practical for my purposes, but still... that just looks like too much fun.

    I guess I miss my singlespeed. Maybe a(nother) KM is in my future...

    So, stickers on or stickers off?

    The army green frame looks pretty boss totally clean, but the Surly branding is cool too.

    In my mind, it's stickers off always.
